How to Make Your RV Feel Like A Home

Posted on: May 14, 2020 at 2:47 pm, in

When you’re out on the road, you can spend long periods of time living inside your RV. This has its high points as well as its low points, but you can make that time spent in your RV all the more enjoyable if it feels like a home away from home. Here are some tips for making your RV comfortable and adding those personal touches to really make it feel like a home, rather than just a vehicle.


A barely decorated RV isn’t going to feel like home for most people. Add some color, personality, and a taste of home to your RV with accessories like rugs, blankets, curtains, and pillows. Adorning your couch and beds with decorative pillows and comfortable blankets or throws will especially add to the comfort and personality of the RV. Decorating your motorhome with a custom printed RV shade also brings personality to your vehicle.

Decorate the walls

You might not have much wall space in your RV, but that doesn’t mean you can’t hang up a picture or two. You could hang family photos or decorative pieces you have on your walls at home. Command strips are great for securely sticking frames to the walls. If you’re still uncertain about how securely fastened they are, you could always take down the frames while you’re on the move and stick them up while you’re parked.

Give your kids free reign over their space

Okay, maybe to an extent, but if you’re traveling with your kids, letting them decorate and personalize their space will add a real taste of home. They might want to pick out their bedding and curtains, draw pictures to stick on the walls, or stick up pictures of their friends or favorite celebrities.

Bring small home comforts

You might not be able to pack all your home furniture and other belongings into your RV, but you can bring small items that make you comfortable and remind you of home. This might be a pair of cozy slippers or your favorite mug. For your kids, it might be their favorite stuffed animal or a comfort blanket.

Make it smell like home

Familiar pleasant smells can have a big impact on your memories and your mood. If there are certain fragrances or air fresheners that you regularly use at home, bring these along to make your RV smell like your home.
