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:

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.

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

2016 Keystone Laredo fifth wheel with a farmhouse style makeover by Jessica Byers of @theflippinbyers

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.

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.

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

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

2019 Heartland Pioneer travel trailer renovated with vintage style decor by @CortesMemoir

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:

  1. Very creative and cute! Quick question: with the free standing decor (vases on upper shelves, etc.), do you remove them when moving the trailer or are they in place with a specific adhesive? I would love to not have to take down my free standing decor in my own rv when it is on the road if I don’t have too. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you

    1. Some RVers take down the stuff and pack it for travel, and others use an adhesive to keep it in place! Museum putty is popular with a lot of people, but my personal favorite adhesive for decor is acrylic mounting tape!

  2. Hi! Great inspiration, lovely design! I’m in the process of renovating my 2005 Toy Hauler, full gut job. That said, I want to clad some of the walls with barnwood but I am wondering what I need to consider? With moving (I’ll be doing so more than being parked) as well as temperature gradients, can I use real wood? What about peel and stick? MDF? Wood like stickers/wall paper best? Thank you for any feedback folks can give, good bad or indiffernt I’ll take it! 🙂

    1. I know of people who have used all of those materials you’ve mentioned! Peel and stick wallpaper is probably the most common just because it’s so easy. Some people use it with no problem, and others have needed to use an additional spray adhesive or wallpaper paste to keep it from peeling. I’ve also known people who used fence boards or cut strips of plywood to create a wall from real wood. In these cases I would just say to be mindful of weight. There are also some interesting artificial wood plank materials available. I used a peel-and-stick 3D foam to line my RV closet, and there are also some very realistic wall paneling materials available at places like Lowe’s and Home Depot. As far as temperature changes, the biggest thing to be aware of is moisture and condensation. You can read more about what causes it to form in an RV and how to prevent it in this blog post I wrote.

    1. Hi Karla, beneath each photo is the name of the person who owns the RV. If their name is in turquoise, you can click it and visit the person’s website or social media page and contact them that way. If their name is gray instead of turquoise, that means I came across their photos shared in a Facebook group and when they granted me permission to share their pictures they didn’t have a URL for me to link to. You might be able to find them by searching for their photos in the Facebook group RV Interior Ideas, as many of them are in that group. Hope that helps!

  3. how has the peel and stick wall paper and tiles held up. did it fall off the walls over time or hold up well. i want to try this option to brighten up our rv bedroom.

    1. I can’t answer from personal experience, but you could try contacting the owners of some of these RV’s to ask! If their names appear in blue below their pictures, that means you can click the name to visit their social media page or website.

    2. I actually saw a discussion about this on Facebook this morning. Some people had problems with their peel-and-stick shiplap wallpaper falling down after the winter, and others said they used adhesive spray (found in the craft department at Walmart or a craft store) to hold it up. Which makes it permanent, I guess!

  4. This post made me smile and even tear up a little. My husband Ed and I renovated our 1997 Nuwa HitchHiker 5th wheel, starting shortly after we bought it new back then. People were horrified! “You’ll never get your money back!”

    Ed was gifted a lot of old barnboard which he used to line our bed frame, create a lift-up cover for the window at the top of our bed (lifted and hooked when we wanted light/windows open) and also doubled as a headboard, create a desk with extra storage where the “vanity” had been, add a skinny coat closet near the back of the main area, and a decorative shelf with storage underneath the huge back window. We removed the RV sofabed and dinette, replacing them with a cute denim loveseat and our vintage enamed-top table & chairs. We had a beautiful quilt on the bed. Plants to make it homey & clean the air (they rode in the shower during a trip).

    Our only regret was that we didn’t keep it when we stopped working on the road. We were sorry in less than 6 months that we had sold it. But our lives had taken a different turn at that point.

    We always planned to get a vintage camper and redo it to use for summer travels. Alas, that never did happen before my beloved Ed died in 2017.

    Thus the story behind my smiles and tears looking at these RVs. I’m so grateful for the opportunity we had to live and work together, especially because we were home no matter where we were, together in our tiny cabin on wheels. ❤💔❤

    Thank you for this grand article and my unexpected trip down memory lane. 🥰

    1. Aw, thank you so much for sharing that! <3 Glad to be able to bring back some sweet memories for you! <3
