Thinking about a full-time family getaway? Look no further! This beautifully renovated toy hauler has unique features that are perfect for a growing family on the road. Whether you are looking to renovate your own rig or looking for something new, we hope this will inspire you to create your dream home on wheels.

Living Space

The original sofa or dinette was removed and replaced with a convertible IKEA sofa that saves space while offering your guests a comfortable bed with plenty of storage underneath. You can buy this sofa at IKEA.

The laminate flooring throughout the rig has a beautiful finish resembling natural wide wood planks. You can find something similar at Home Depot.

I love the simple touches to warm up the space, like the bamboo shades that give just enough of that beach feel without blocking the natural light. You can find these Roman blinds in different shades on Amazon.

Above the large electric fireplace, it looks like a painting is mounted, but it’s actually a Samsung frame TV! In fact, this television is mounted on a box that discreetly hides the rig’s electric components. With a simple hinge lock, you can swing the television out and access any panels you need. You can find this Samsung frame TV through Amazon

One of my favorite touches is the countertop extension with stools for extra seating. Perfect for a place to eat that doesn’t take up too much room!

Kitchen

Moving into the kitchen, some features that stand out include the upgraded kitchen hardware. All the cabinets have this retro vintage hardware that gives off an antique and modern design. You can find something similar through Amazon

The backsplash is peel-and-stick faux brick that was painted for a delightful and clean farmhouse feel. You can buy the tiles at Home Depot and paint with whichever color you choose!

You can also see the same backsplash used in the handy coffee nook, which has plenty of storage below.

Did you see that gorgeous brass kitchen faucet? It’s the little touches that combine design and functionality that really make this renovated toy hauler a home.  This faucet is available at Home Depot.

One other unique touch was the curtains on the kitchen window.  They are actually linen napkins! Use a lightweight rod from Target, secure it with Command hooks, and then add rings and clips for an easy window treatment with no damage to the wall.  Switch out your favorite napkins for something more seasonal!

Master Bedroom

A barn door separates the toy hauler section in the rear, which was converted into a combination master stateroom, office, and laundry room.

The King-size bed is on the happy jack system that is easily raised during the day to make space for activities below.

I love the design touch of the bouclé chair. You can get a similar chair at CB2, but also check out your local Facebook marketplace, as you’ll be surprised what you can find at a great deal!

One item worth mentioning is the Nugget play couch. This convertible couch is perfect for kids playing indoors on rainy days. It’s part comfortable couch, part play station, and machine washable, so it ticks off all the boxes. 

The muted plaid rug covering the floor not only keeps everything cozy but also ties in the open and relaxed vacation vibe, accenting the more neutral color choices. You can find this rug at Wayfair.

Above the bed, use a hanging woven shade for a basket/beach design touch. You can find one similar on Etsy

They decided to put a full-size dresser underneath the bed, meaning the jack system can’t be lowered all the way. Instead, they use this folding step stool to climb into bed, which makes it feel like a loft and adds fun for any age. The stool stows easily once collapsed. They found the stool on Amazon.

One other note: This toy hauler has sliding doors that open onto a side patio, perfect for enjoying that first cup of coffee in the morning.

Bathroom

This rig has a unique split layout in the front. There are steps up and doors on either side of the fireplace and entertainment console. To the left is the large bathroom.

The shower stall is an interlocking vinyl tile that looks like real marble. You can find the tiles at Lowe’s. These tiles are easy to install, waterproof, and lightweight.

Also, board and batten on the walls give it a warm farmhouse feel.

Kids Bunks

The most unique feature of this renovated toy hauler is the large second bedroom up the stairs to the right of the fireplace. This was once the master and is a very spacious room that was converted with custom double twin bunk beds on one side and a sitting bunk on the slide for another bunk or reading nook.

There is plenty of storage throughout this room, with drawers underneath both lower bunks, shelving at the headboard, and cubby hole units along the far wall. The same antique cabinet hardware used in the kitchen was repeated in this space for consistency.

Don’t be afraid to add personality with color or visual texture, like the faux brick painted backsplash in the kitchen or thin strips of shiplap seen in the kid’s bedroom to help tie in the farmhouse motif. You can find faux shiplap strips through Wayfair.

The best part about this unique layout is that having two bedrooms at separate ends of the rig gives you added privacy.

Paint, Hardware, and Decor

A combination of three paint colors were used throughout the rig to provide a coordinated palate with specific accents. All paint is from Sherman Williams, with pure white throughout, dark gray on the fireplace, and lighter gray on the board and batten in the bathroom.

Additionally, the door hardware throughout this renovated toy hauler was replaced with square matte black door handles to give a more residential and modern farmhouse design. You can find something similar at Home Depot.

Also, did you see the hanging tapestry in the master bedroom? That is actually DIY. Wanting to cover up the black wall of the trailer, they purchased a drop cloth and then used felt wool for the letters. A great way to personalize your rig on a budget.  You can find something similar in Home Depot’s paint supply area. Get felt by the yard at The Felt Store.

Finally, you don’t have to break the bank to add nice decor to your living space. You can go to your nearest thrift or antique store to find items you can reframe, paint, or update to fit your space and personality perfectly.
