Ashley Mann spent three years living full time in a 38-foot, 5th-wheel RV with her husband Josiah and their cat, Kitty. Her favorite thing about RV life is the challenge of finding the perfect way to organize a space, and she loves seeing all the creative and clever ways people come up with to customize their RVs.
In this article, you'll see photos of 16 cute RVs decorated with rustic, Farmhouse-style decor, including fresh paint or wallpaper, cute curtains, and cozy personal touches. Let these gorgeous farmhouse-style RVs inspire you to channel your inner Joanna Gaines!
Along the way, I'll point out the details and products these RV owners used to achieve their look to show you how easy it would be to recreate the same look in your own RV!
1. Lacey Brooke's Farmhouse Kitchen
Have you ever seen such a perfect RV kitchen? We are obsessed!
The butcher block countertops and bright white walls and cabinets make this RV light and airy. From the open shelves and the hanging produce bags to the small live plants freshening up the place, Lacey has totally nailed the farmhouse vibe HGTV's Fixer Upper made popular.
This RV is straight out of a magazine. Lacey lives in this gorgeous RV full-time and made it feel like the coziest tiny home. She even made room for a nursery:
2. Brooke Seaman's Faux Shiplap and Corrugated Metal Walls
Brooke and her husband Jon regularly live in their camper while traveling for work, so they wanted it to have a homey feel. Their travel trailer has undergone several phases of decor including this farmhouse look which featured white cabinets, peel-and-stick wallpaper, and cozy decor pieces.
Brooke used burlap sacks to make curtains and cover the trim on her dining booth.
After having to remove a wall in their bathroom due to a suspected water leak, Brooke and Jon decided to replace the wall with corrugated metal, which gave it even more of a country feel.
Later Brooke decided to remove the upper cabinets in her RV kitchen and install open shelving. She says she doesn't mind stashing the items on the shelf in a box when it's time to travel.
3. The Flippin Byers Farmhouse Kitchen
Jessica and her husband bought this 2016 Keystone Laredo fifth wheel to live in full time, so she added her personal style to it so that it would feel more like home.
In addition to painting the walls white and the cabinets dark gray, they replaced the molding around the slideouts with stained boards for a more rustic look, replaced the light fixtures, added details like faux shiplap and subway tile and organizer buckets mounted on the wall in the kitchen for extra storage.
You can see more photos of this RV on the Byers' Instagram page, @TheFlippinByers.
4. Cherice Perkins' Faux Wood Wall
Cherice and her husband bought their fifth wheel to live in full-time after they sell their house. Clean gray and white paint with cheerful blue and white curtains make this kitchen feel fresh and modern.
Cherice and her husband removed the built-in dining booth and sofa, replacing it with a sofa with hidden storage under the seat and a convenient storage cart. The faux wood accent wall in the living room slide was created using peel-and-stick faux wood paneling wallpaper.

5. Roaming with the Wild One's Gorgeous RV Kitchen
Vertical shiplap and open shelves instantly make you feel like you're in a real farmhouse with this RV renovation. The magnetic spice holder and tiny hook for the rolling pin make this kitchen feel like home.
But I think it's the floors that really make this farmhouse look authentic!
6. Nicole Rushing's Cozy Bathroom
RV bathrooms are known for being tiny, but look what Nicole did with her tiny space!
The white walls and open shelving make this small RV bathroom feel bigger than it is. We especially love the towel hooks and simple decor she used to liven up the room.

7. Christina LaPlaca's Rustic Walls and Furniture
Christina and her husband bought their 2015 Forest River Wildwood Heritage Glen Lite fifth wheel to live in full time so they could keep their same home no matter where in the U.S. the military sends them.
To mimic the look of a plank wall, Christina used peel-and-stick flooring which she then painted. She then used antiquing wax to create the illusion of depth and to give her white painted furniture an aged look. You can read more on her blog about her bedroom makeover.
Christina used peel and stick flooring to make a faux wood wall in her kitchen, too. She also added burlap to the inset panels of her kitchen cabinets.
To complete the vibe, she created stagecoach-style valances paired with Roman shades for the windows.

8. Jennifer Reid's Custom Curtains and Upcycled Decor
Jennifer and her fiancé remodeled this 2007 Timberlodge RV to use as a lake house. Having the RV set up in a permanent location gave them a bit more freedom with their decor and furniture choices.

A versatile drop-leaf table can be expanded to seat more people or occupy less space with the leaves down.
To create her backsplash, Jennifer used faux brick paneling (available at Home Depot or Lowe's) and added spackling “grout” and whitewash to make it look more realistic. Her fiancé built the amazing stovetop cover.
The subway tile backsplash in her beautiful bathroom is peel-and-stick tile from Amazon.
The black and white color scheme with rustic wood gives Jennifer's RV a more modern Farmhouse feel.
9. Amy Smith's Shiplap Kitchen
Amy and her husband sold their 1,700-square-foot home to live in this Forest River travel trailer.
Amy has gradually been making modifications which include a peel-and-stick tile backsplash, painted cabinets, a drop-leaf table from Ikea, and peel-and-stick wallpaper on the refrigerator. Her white plank wall is actually made from textured shiplap wallpaper.
10. Kelly O'Brien's Subway Tile
Kelly turned her 2002 Coachmen Rendezvous Class A into a farmhouse on wheels with the help of some paint, distressed wood wallpaper on the dining booth, and other decorative touches.
The dining booth transforms into a comfortable day bed.
Kelly used the same peel-and-stick subway tiles that Jennifer Reid used in her RV bathroom—a popular way to renovate your RV kitchen.
11. Kimberlyn McFadden's Farmhouse Decor
Kimberlyn made the uncommon choice to paint her RV's trim but leave the original wallpaper. A slipcover disguises the factory-original sofa.
Kimberlyn used the distressed wood wallpaper to make an accent wall behind her bed and as insets for her cabinet doors.
She also chose to paint her kitchen cabinets two different colors, choosing a light grey for the button cabinets, and white for the uppers.
12. Melissa Escobar's Custom RV Windows
Melissa has an impressive ability to innovate to create the look she imagines for her RV. She made her curtain rods out of PVC pipe spray painted to look like copper, and framed her windows with peel-and-stick wood shiplap.
I love the decorative “wrought-iron” detail in the corners of the slide-out trim, made from a shelf bracket.
13. Jennings Paige's Cozy Living Room
The green color Jennings chose for the kitchen cabinets in contrast with rustic faux wood wallpaper gives this 2012 Keystone Cougar travel trailer a more modern farmhouse vibe.
White linen curtains, a natural fiber rug, farmhouse-style coffee table, and a rose velvet couch complete the look.
14. Michelle Sharp's Unique Backsplash
In addition to fresh paint and cute farm decor, a tin backsplash helped Michelle achieve a bright and cheery farmhouse look in her RV kitchen.
Michelle added more storage by mounting these baskets on the kitchen cabinets.

Michelle also used the distressed wood wallpaper as a bedroom accent wall.
She painted her built-in dresser with an aging technique to complete the antique Farmhouse look.
15. Robyn Crowhurst's Barn Door
Robyn and her husband John renovated a 1990 toy hauler and turned it into a tiny home. These photos show some of Robyn's Farmhouse style decor during one phase of their renovation process.
Robyn's husband does construction for a living, so it was no problem for him to build a real plank wall for their bathroom.
They also added this real wood wall and sliding door to the open floor plan toy hauler to create a separate bedroom for their daughters. They reinforced the frame of their RV to compensate for the added weight of the extra walls.
Robyn uses vintage Farmhouse items like a rake head and a cheese grater to add storage to her kitchen.
16. Eric and Bri Cortes Corrugated Metal Shower
I have seen a lot of cute RV renovations, but it's not often one comes along that really makes my jaw drop the way this one did.
Every detail is just perfect, from the floral fabrics to the distressed wood cabinetry to the vintage artwork.
The shower walls were replaced with corrugated metal, and even though the beige wallpaper in the bathroom may look original at first glance, a closer look reveals a vintage Victorian-style pattern.
As you can see, it can be really fun to redo the inside of a camper to look more like a Farmhouse-on-wheels!
While my RV isn't a full farmhouse-style renovation, I added faux wood plank panels to my closet. It gives my closet a little farmhouse vibe and even provides extra insulation in the winter. See how to add wood plank panels in your RV in this video:

I love seeing how other people decorate their campers, and this is such a great roundup! Soooo much cozier than how they come from the factory, that’s for sure!
I agree! These people did a great job of turning a camper into a home!
So many great ideas! My husband and I started RVing full-time last October. We bought our travel trailer new but have considered painting some of it to lighten it up. I found it quite dark in the winter as our color scheme is creams and browns. This article has given me a lot of inspiration. Thank you!
So glad you enjoyed it! Have fun with your travel trailer! 🙂
This was a fun read! Thanks for posting!
Aw, you’re welcome! Glad you enjoyed it! 🙂
Love all the creativity! Thanks for sharing. My husband and I just got a 1956 vintage Yellowstone camper and I can’t wait to start rehabbing it! We live in the mountains so it will have a cabin/lodge look.
That sounds like a fun project! Enjoy!
Wow, each RV is so homey, creative and beautiful…..so many great ideas to inspire! Can someone tell me how they have managed to get the peel-n-stick wallpaper to stay stuck? I papered the bathroom to start, and after we put the RV up for the winter, when my husband went to check on it, it was a fallen, crumpled mess. =( Tried to put it back up with lots of smoothing and pressure, but to no avail. Hubby wants me to just tear it down and paint, but I like the look of the pattern instead of just a painted wall. Thanks for any help!
Hi Cindy, I don’t have personal experience with this, but some RV owners recommend 3M Adhesive spray to reinforce the adhesive on peel-and-stick wallpaper, and others use regular wallpaper paste. Hope this helps!
I will give it a try! Thanks for your help!
You’re welcome! Hope it goes well!
