Nature-lovers are obsessed with luxury RVs and converted live-in vans, and for good reason. These mobile homes make it easy to enjoy the outdoors while still living in comfort and having access to all of your favorite amenities—including the Internet and a shower to wash off the outdoors when you need to. And RVs aren’t just for summer vacation, either. Some luxury RVs are nice enough and durable enough to withstand all four seasons—yes, even snow. So if you really love hiking up in the snow-covered mountains, you won’t have to give up the luxury of your home for a hotel or log cabin.
But if you’re planning to do some camping or wilderness exploring in your luxury RV this summer, you’re going to want to give it a makeover worthy of HGTV. Most RVs come with standardized, neutral couches and beds that are definitely not the height of luxury. A luxury RV can be the perfect alternative to the usual bland RV style. Luxury RVs still have a neutral base, so it’s easy to decorate your mobile home however you want, but they have a little more pizzazz.

If your RV has built-in furniture with a pop of color, like these luxury green couches, you can pull that color throughout the rest of the RV with plants, pillows, and other accents. The options for colors and decor pieces in your RV are endless, which can be overwhelming. But it’s not as intimidating as it seems. You already know what colors and patterns you like in your house, so you could always replicate a similar style—or completely change it up and go for one of the funky retro looks that are trending. It’s up to you!
Whether you’re traveling across forests, mountains, canyons, rivers, or valleys, you’re sure to find a style that works for you and your luxury RV.
1. Choose a Style
Take a look at your favorite Pinterest board and think about the decor pieces you love most in your home. It’s best to look for pieces that are both visually pleasing and functional since you will have limited space. You don’t have to go for an outdoorsy look if you prefer glamping to camping. So what styles do you love? Art deco, bohemian, contemporary, industrial, minimalist? You have the potential to take your favorite home style with you anywhere in your luxury RV.
2. Give It a Retro Theme
If you want to completely embrace the all-American road trip look, you can decorate your luxury RV with vintage pieces like old metal signs, collectible figurines, and cars. You could even incorporate some vintage restaurant decor like old-fashioned bar stools and art pieces with brand names—like Campbell’s and Coca-Cola.
3. Use Souveniers
If you want to be reminded of your past adventures when you’re both inside and outside of your RV, consider looking for souvenirs that you can hang in your RV. You might want to purchase furniture or accessories from some of the unique places you’ve been or accessorize with smaller souvenirs like art, stickers, and magnets.
4. Utilize Wall Space
You may not have a lot of room for furniture or large decor items like plants and pottery, but that doesn’t mean you have to forego decorating altogether. You can hang art and souvenirs on the walls or adorn them with pegboards, wire grids, and magnet boards to give you more storage space. Hooks, rods, and boards can be a great place to store spare bags, hats, umbrellas, and camping gear near the front of the RV as well as mugs and cooking utensils in the kitchen. Hanging items from the windows and windshield is also a great way to accent some of the more charming features of a mobile home. Hanging souvenirs and keychains, DIY trinkets, and window decals show off your personality as you drive by.
5. Additional Lighting
If the light in your RV seems a little dim once the sun goes down, you might want to install additional lighting on the ceiling. If you want something with a little more flair, consider using LED lights, fairy lights, and even candles. Your kids will love them too! Lighting carefully hidden underneath beds and tables is a practical way to illuminate darker storage areas while also giving off a cool backlit glow.
6. Try Out a Projector
No worries if you don’t have space for a TV in your RV. You can get a mini projector to display all of your favorite movies and TV shows on the wall—or even on the side of your RV if you feel like watching a movie underneath the stars. Of course, you can also install a projector screen inside your RV for a quick and easy viewing experience.
7. Embrace the Outdoorsy Look
If you want the luxury of an RV with all the natural beauty of the great outdoors, you can implement some of those outdoor elements in your interior design. For a forest-themed RV, use lots of plants, green furnishings, and decor shaped like deer, bears, and other animals. For a beach-themed RV, find signs with cute beachy sayings, as well as some seashell, anchor, and boat decor pieces.
8. Use Cute Curtains for Privacy
If you’re staying in an RV with family or friends, you may want to section off your bed to give yourself some privacy. Luckily, there are plenty of cute curtains that you can use as doors for both kids and adults. If you chose a pop of color to accent your decor, you may want to purchase curtains in the same color. In addition to functioning as makeshift doors, curtains can also be placed over windows for extra privacy.
9. Wood Accents
If you’re going for a rustic or country look, the plastic and metal in your RV may not be ideal. Some luxury RVs have wooden walls, but you can also spruce things up by DIY-ing some wooden beams for your ceiling or any other nooks and crannies in your RV.
