3 Ways to refurbish your RV/5th Wheel

3 Ways to refurbish your RV/5th Wheel

There are currently 11 million households in the U.S. that own RVs or 5th wheels — and that number doesn’t appear to be slowing down.

There are people from all walks of life crisscrossing the country each year, from retirees enjoying their freedom from the workforce to young couples and even families giving “van life a try.” But no matter where these RV-ers come from, they all have one thing in common: they want their RV to feel like home.

If you want to give your RV or 5th wheel a few homey touches, here are a few projects you can try!

Repaint Everything

The most obvious way to breathe new life into your RV interior is to grab some paint and hit those walls with a vengeance!

RV Interior Redesign

Find a paint color (or better yet, a few) that reflects your personality or simply makes you smile, and you’ll be surprised how comfy your RV will feel. You can even use chalk paint or magnetic paint to create an artistic play space for any little ones riding with you.

Just remember that RV walls and cabinets usually have a slippery coating, so sanding and priming are a must!

Dress up the Details

Let’s say that you want to dress up your RV without making any heavy-duty changes (painting, replacing furniture, etc.) It’s still possible to make your RV or 5th wheel look brand new; just focus on the details.

Cover the wallpaper in your kitchen with a stick-on tile backsplash. Upgrade your cabinet hardware with something that suits your style. Replace the valances on your windows with luxurious curtains. All these little adjustments can help you express yourself and dress up your RV without costing too much time or money.

Upgrade Your Sleeping Arrangements

One of the greatest things about traveling in an RV is the fact that you can lay down and stretch out for a good night’s sleep. In fact, we believe that investing in your bedroom is the best way to maximize your RV’s comfort level!

Custom RV Mattress for a Jayco

A high-quality mattress that suits your sleep-style and preferences can help you feel more rested on the road. Custom bedding can help you show off your personal style and make your RV bed more appealing!


And when you’ve got the RV mattress and bedding of your dreams, it’s easy to settle in for 40 winks — which means you’ll be rested and ready to appreciate wherever your RV takes you.
