My Favorite RV Renovations for Design Inspiration

Do you love looking at RV renovation ideas as much as we do? We are always amazed at how RV owners have taken an average looking travel trailer, motorhome or camper and turned it into a space that is bright, modern and absolutely beautiful. Enjoy browsing through these 15 Instagram accounts who share amazing RV remodeling before and after photos.

I’ve mentioned this countless times over the years. Yet, here I am mentioning it again. Todd and I are not remodelers. We’re not very handy when it comes to changing the look of a space. The sheer mention of painting interior walls in our travel trailer results in groans from Todd. I follow suit with my own laughter after considering the notion. There is a lot required with even the smallest RV upgrade or renovation.

This is our idea of RV renovation – a new faucet and stick on subway tile. This was my birthday present and I was so excited to make a tiny cosmetic upgrade to our travel trailer. (Don’t look at my dirty oven. :P)

My latest thing is mentioning how we should get an old beat-up van and remodel it to travel in. We stop and think about it and then we laugh and laugh because that’s just not something we’re comfortable with.

Since we’re not renovating an RV anytime soon, I love to live vicariously through others, specifically on Instagram.

RV Renovation Ideas

Katie and Eric @MountainModernLife

The very first RV renovation before and after photos I stumbled upon on Instagram was the couple from Mountain Modern Life. They were the reason I bought a white fluffy rug to place on our ottoman. I loved that rug.

Mountain Modern Life’s slogan is “Creating the environment you want to live in.” Their Instagram is stunning to scroll through and their website is chock full of RV remodel ideas.

Kevin and Mandy @188sqft

Another couple I found was Kevin and Mandy from 188sqft. They’re all about “Sharing the good, bad, and funny of living with four pets in our remodeled camper.” I love the photos they share with their cats and pups.

They have created a space where they can all live comfortably, plus it’s beautiful. Just look at that kitchen!

Ashley @ArrowsandBows

Ashley and her husband, along with their 3 kids, sold their home. They bought two acres of land and moved into a travel trailer while they built a new house. After 17 months, they moved out of the travel trailer and into their new house.

Find inspiration of all kinds of intentional and tiny living on Ashley’s Arrows and Bows blog. They also have a small house rental located along the Gulf of Mexico on Anna Maria island in Florida. *Adding that to bucket list.*

Aaron and Mandy @WilsonGrandAdventures

This full-time traveling family shares their RV remodel photos, RV organization ideas and their adventures around the country. They haven’t launched their blog yet, but stay tuned! This couple has created such a beautiful tiny home on wheels for their adventuring family.

Ashley @RVInspiration

Ashley shares not only photos of her RV but others as well. The RV Inspiration blog is all about helping you “Make your RV feel like home.” You’ll find design inspiration, full-time RV living tips, storage and organization ideas and more.

Isn’t that an amazing workspace in the photo above?!

Cortni from @TheFlippingNomad

Cortni has been a full-time RVers for 5 years. She shares her beautiful RV remodel photos for her Keystone Montana fifth wheel. She’s currently working with Keystone for their series #MontanaMonday.

Watch her videos via the Keystone RV Facebook page or via YouTube.


This couple renovated a 36′ RV to travel with their sidekicks, Batman the Bulldog, and Ruckus, an Airedale Terrier.

Wendy @WendyWiseSpaces

Wendy is a “Small space designer obsessed with eradicating the color brown from RV interiors.” Amen to that Wendy! And she has done a great job at replacing the brown with beautiful colors that make your tiny home on wheels look and feel more spacious.

Be sure to check out the before and after of the dining room pictured above.

Renee @therossesroam

Not only do they have a great Instagram name, but they were recently featured on Apartment Therapy for their 350-square-foot RV remodel. 

I love the story of why they moved into a fifth wheel. Dylan is an officer in the Navy, which meant they moved around every year or two. So instead of constantly renting, they decided that taking their home with them every time made the most sense. And what an amazing home on wheels it is!

Ashlin @WhiteHouseMuddyFeet

Ashlin is a wife and boy mom who’s living the camper life in their remodeled 5th wheel. It’s a gorgeous tiny modern farmhouse on wheels and was recently featured on Mountain Modern Life. They purchased their 1999 camper for around $3800 and spent $3500 remodeling it.

Doug and Sarah @forrest_and_fiona

Doug and Sarah have remodeled Forrest, a skoolie and Fiona, a 1970 VW. If you’ve ever dreamed of remodeling a school bus, this Instagram account is for you! The picture above is a peek inside Forrest.

For pictures of the outside of Forrest + more details on renovations, visit their Instagram!

Bo and Madison @troopnashville

Bo and Madison are adventure van builders. They share amazing pictures and details of their renovations, builds and camper remodels. This is a site to see if you’re looking to remodel a van and seeking great design and layout inspiration.

Since we sold our Keystone Passport, we’re on the hunt for our next rig and vans are currently catching our attention.

Asphalt Gypsy @thehighwaysdaughter

Last but not least, Autumn lives with her family of five in a renovated 42′ toy hauler. Her husband travels for work, so instead of the family being apart for long periods of time, they committed to living small. I love that idea.

How amazing is that back view into their toy hauler?

Do You Have the Inspiration for a Great RV or Van Renovation?

Did you get some serious RV renovation inspiration? I hope so! Not only did I get ideas and a wish list for our next rig, but I’m also stealing some of the decor ideas for our apartment.
