These RV owners have created a seaside paradise that can travel with them wherever they go.  Take a look at their photos to inspire your own beach-themed RV or nautical-themed decor.

1. Add Fish Nets!

Fish netting and a tropical wall decal draw your eye with the beach look in this RV.  

Look closely and you’ll notice picnic bench-style seating around the dinette as an added touch!

But our favorite touch has to be the light fixtures!

You can see more photos of this interior makeover at Trevor and Roni’s blog and at

2. Shiplap

White shiplap is a great way to cover up your RV walls and give airy nautical vibes.

In addition to beach-themed decor and a gorgeous mirror, these RVers scuffed up their painted cabinets to give a familiar rustic cottage look.

4. Cabinet Accents

RV owner Suzanne painted her cabinet doors’ glass inserts white and then covered them with napkins adhered with Mod Podge. She also used driftwood-style wallpaper and seashell artwork in her RV bathroom.

Owner, Debbie, perfectly decorated this tiny trailer to give minimalist beach vibes. We love the wooden paddle hung on the wall!

6. All White

Adding white paint to your walls and cabinets is the fastest way to turn your trailer into a coastal getaway.

7. LOLA RV by the Sea

This RV—named LOLA RV by the Sea—was designed specifically for taking family trips down to the beach.

We love that the owner, Sheena, decided to use green instead of blue in her tropical makeover!

You would never guess from the photos that this RV was built in 1990!

In the bathroom, a coastal boho style shower curtain was added along with a scalloped backsplash to give a subtle nod to the sea. You can find more photos and details behind this renovation on Sheena’s blog.

8. The Minimal Makeover

This RV owner skipped painting altogether and added simple beach decor inside the RV.

Instead, she went all out with a place to hang out outside her RV in Fort Myers, Florida.

We love this permanent RV setup! The pop up tent is a great way to be outside without pesky mosquitos ruining your vacation.

Rugs, live plants, and comfy lounge chairs make this RV patio the perfect place to hang out!

9. The Adaptable Design

If you plan to ever sell your RV, you may be worried about how renovations can impact the resale value.

One of the biggest pieces of advice we always give is to keep your major cosmetic upgrades neutral so that they can fit anyone’s design. Designer Rachel Reed perfectly embodied this with the renovation of her travel trailer.

Little touches like baskets and the beaded light fixtures add to the seaside design style. But most of her renovations remain very neutral and highly adaptable to any future owner’s style!

10. Wallpaper goes a long way!

Paint, beachwood wallpaper, and new linens make a world of difference in this RV.

11. Nautical Navy

Navy may be dark, but it certainly screams beach in this RV renovation.

by Kathy Tilley-Booker

The owner of this motorhome used a white and navy blue color palette accented with brass fixtures to create a nautical theme.  Details such as a porthole mirror, an octopus wall decal, and an epoxy map tabletop complete the look.

12. Beachside Getaway

RV owner Bobbi slowly transformed her RV into a beachside getaway. Watch it evolve over time!

Let’s start in the mermaid-themed bedroom.

The beach theme continues through the house of the RV with decor and this funky stained glass light fixture.

Note the new covers on the couches!

13. My Happy Place

by Laurie Lozano

RV owner Laurie painted her walls with Glidden paint + primer in one and used Beyond Paint for her cabinets. She used these peel-and-stick mosaic tiles for her backsplash and added the finishing touch in her bedroom with this bedspread set.

14. A Park Model Remodel

This park model RV is stationary, so its ocean-loving owners brought the beach to Illinois.

15. Before-and-After

RV owner Michele combined beach wood wallpaper, painted shutters, and distressed wooden boxes to achieve the look of her beach bedroom.

  1. Would you happen to know the color that Bobbi Gearhart used in her bedroom in the first photo slide (before her remdel)?

    1. I don’t often decorate with my favorite colors! In our last house I decorated with green, black, and red (an Oriental theme to incorporate decor I purchased while living in Korea), and in our RV I’m doing grays accented with yellow, navy, and teal. I actually don’t really have a favorite color, but if I did it definitely wouldn’t be red or yellow, lol! I think my favorite colors to wear tend to be cooler colors, but in decorating I like to use neutrals with warm color accents. I’ve never really thought about it this much before!

  2. I really love Michelle Renee’s idea! I was going to cover my black faux leather headboard with fabric, but I might change my mind.

    1. Isn’t it fantastic! I think it’s my favorite use I’ve seen for that multi-colored shiplap wallpaper!

    2. I made a fabric covered headboard for my last RV and it turned out beautifully except for one thing. If you are going to lean up against it to read or watch tv, use a washable faux leather product or make the fabric removable for washing.
      Although I do not use anything on my hair except hairspray, I still got a stained area from my head touching the fabric..

  3. My sister is vacationing at the beach this weekend so I was already dreaming of sand and waves, but these makeovers are really making me wanna visit the beach ASAP. Great ideas, thanks for sharing!

  4. Just got back from a week at the beach with my sisters and their families. Heaven! Was raised there, so it’s going home for me. I think my favorite theme has to be a combination of country and beach (sort of the Kenny Chesney thing going on). Always been that way for me.

    1. It seems like you like “cottage style” decor, which can be either beach or country! 😀 I don’t listen to Kenny Chesney very often but I have always liked his song “Anything But Mine”. 🙂 I was raised in Missouri so unfortunately I’ve only been to the beach a few times. :/
