Are you thinking about upgrading your RV but don’t know where to begin? Well, you’ve come to the right place!

Campers are convenient ways of exploring your favorite vacation destinations without needing to book additional accommodations or transportation. As a result, you’ll usually spend a lot of time in an RV.

If this is the case, you’ll want to ensure that your RV space aligns perfectly with your style preferences to guarantee that you feel right at home.

We’ve come up with 10 simple ways to upgrade your camper. Alongside the guidance of an RV Renovation Guide, you’ll be able to redesign your RV in little to no time!

1. Add New Window Coverings

There’s nothing quite like the old-fashioned RV window covers and curtains with bold colors and highly uncomfortable patterns. These are often extremely dated and might drag the overall appearance of your RV down.


Fortunately, there’s a simple way to fix this: change the window coverings.

All you need is a drill, cafe rods, and some new modern curtains that fit your preferred style. You could even install blackout blinds for more privacy!

2. Thoroughly Clean Your RV

This may sound a bit too simple, but giving your RV a thorough clean could do wonders for upgrading its appearance! A deep clean may help you determine what looks good and what you want to replace to upgrade the interior of your RV. Don’t forget to clean the small corners of your storage areas, too!

3. Change Light Fixtures

Changing the light fixtures is an easy way of upgrading the RV interior to something entirely new. You can opt for any type of light fixture in an RV, provided you use a 12-volt bulb. The best part is that installing new light fixtures is a pretty easy DIY job, too, so this upgrading task will take you little to no time to complete!

4. Use Peel And Stick Tiles

Traditional tiles are far too heavy for an RV. Yet if you want this type of finish in your RV, a great alternative to upgrading the interior of your camper is to use peel and stick tiles which are lightweight, durable, and stylish. You could even use them to create a feature wall or even replace an old backsplash in your kitchen or bathroom!

5. Add Simple Decor

If you want to keep your decoration simple, you can add some cheap items such as faux greenery, comfortable blankets, pillows, or even photo frames to inject some personality into your space. You may even want to add some fairy lights or some of your bed linen from home. Do whatever makes you feel more at home!

6. Paint The Cabinets

Painting the cabinets is arguably the easiest way to upgrade a dated RV. Using colored paint can make the space look bigger and far more luxurious. As long as you sand and prime your cabinets before painting, you’ll be on your way to upgrading your furniture in no time — all without the extra cost!

7. Add Some Paint

Speaking of paint, you can also add some color to your ceiling or walls to upgrade the space! Get rid of darker, dingy colors and apply a fresh coat of white, beige, pale blue, or even sage green paint to liven up the space. Lighter colored paint will better reflect the sunlight which will make the space feel bigger.


8. Replace The Flooring

Is your flooring showing signs of wear and tear? You should include new floor installation in your RV remodel! The carpet you usually see in RVs can quickly look outdated and out of place. Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to swap this carpet out for vinyl plank (or another similar material) which is lightweight, durable, easy to clean, and also easy to install. 

9. Buy New Countertops

You don’t need to spend lots of money when opting to replace your countertops. You could apply a non-permanent material like vinyl contact paper to improve the space or you could install wood countertops by repurposing wood from other RV remodeling projects. Whatever you need to do, there are materials out there to help you achieve your desired outcome!

10. Add A Skylight

Make your RV feel bigger by adding a skylight to the roof. These delightful additions come in many shapes and sizes and are the perfect way to incorporate natural lighting into your camper. Add some dark shades to the skylight to block out any direct sunlight during the day and to close the interior for a better night’s sleep in the evening.


Upgrading an RV in your next remodel doesn’t need to be expensive or overly difficult! As long as you know what sort of outcome you want to achieve, you will have very little difficulty when redesigning your space.
