Furniture that can help save space and add storage in an RV, camper, or motorhome

Many RVers think they have to buy expensive RV-specific furniture to replace old, worn out, or outdated couches, recliners, and other furniture in their camper or motorhome, but in fact, countless RV owners (myself included) have replaced the factory-installed furniture with “regular” furniture without any issues long as the furniture meets weight requirements and is secured somehow during travel.

Take a look at some of theses ideas for giving your RV a furniture makeover!

Expanding Shaker style table

Where to buy it:

Amazon.com

What I love about it:

This table expands from a buffet for two to a full-sized dining table that comfortably seats six.  You could get a few folding chairs to bring out when needed.

Foldable “Origami” Kitchen Island

Where to buy it:

Amazon.com

What I love about it:

If you need extra counter space but don’t have room to add something permanent, this folding kitchen island is the perfect solution.  I love the stylish mock butcher block top, and that it comes in four different colors.

Drop leaf counter height table

Where to buy it:

Walmart.com

What I love about it:

Since the leaves fold out from the ends, this table could be used as an island, or it could stay pushed up against a wall for just two or three people to use without blocking the drawers or having to pull it out for use.  Or, if you keep a few extra folding bar stools, you could pull it out and seat four around it when needed.

Drop leaf island in white

Where to buy it:

Walmart.com

What I love about it:

Same idea as the one above, but the style of this one would be a better match for beach-themed or farmhouse style decor.

Lift coffee table with drawer

Where to buy it:

Amazon.com

What I love about it:

With the drawer, which would be ideal for storing office supplies, this coffee table would make a wonderful desk.  You could also use it for eating and get rid of the need for a dining table or dinette booth.  It comes in black as well.

Smart lift top ottoman

Where to buy it:

Amazon.com

What I love about it:

A storage ottoman bench is what we use for a coffee table in our RV.  We store shoes in it, and it’s handy to be able to sit on it while putting our shoes on.  We keep a wood serving tray sitting on top as a hard surface to set drinks on.  The thing that stood out to me about this one was the way the lid lifts from each side, meaning you wouldn’t have to remove a tray sitting on top to access the contents; you could just slide it to one end.  Also, this ottoman comes in three solid colors and five fun prints.

Wall-mounted writing desk

Where to buy it:

Amazon.com

What I love about it:

This fold-out desk could be hung on a wall next to the bed to create a workspace in the bedroom.

Nesting desk

Where to buy it:

Walmart.com

What I love about it:

This desk offers a lot of space to spread out while you’re working, but doesn’t take up much space at all when it’s not in use.

Office Chair

Where to buy it:

Target.com

What I love about it:

I love that this office chair is pretty as well as functional and would look nice in any room.  In addition to the colors pictured below, it also comes in gray as well as a black and white cowhide print.

Wood butterfly chair

Where to buy it:

Amazon.com

What I love about it:

The leather style is perfect for trendy boho or modern rustic decor, but it would also look great in a camper with a cowboy or cabin inspired decor theme.  Since it folds out of the way, it could be pulled out as extra seating for guests.  It could also be used outside as a lawn chair that looks pretty inside as well.Leather butterfly chair

The CouchBed – Memory Foam Mattress + Sofa

Where to buy it:

CouchBed.com

What I love about it:

The biggest draw about this sleeper sofa to me is the versatility.  Not only is it just a really cool idea to have a comfortable memory foam mattress that can fold in half to become a couch, it also comes in a queen size or a smaller twin size, and with several different color options for the removable, washable cover.

Also, it can be used by itself on the floor, on top of a DIY base (such as wood pallets), or, the company sells a really nifty pull-out wooden platform base:

Twin Hide-a-bed Loveseat with Memory Foam Mattress

Where to buy it:

Walmart.com

What I love about it:

Most twin-sized sleeper sofas are as wide as a bed is long, so this one is great if you’re short on space.  Also, the positive reviews seem to indicate that the memory foam mattress is a welcome alternative to the typical, notoriously uncomfortable hide-a-bed mattress.

    I LOVE the lift coffee table! Does it raise high enough to use as a writing or crafting surface?
