Camper units use every inch of space efficiently. While there’s the cutest camping decor out there, let’s face it– we don’t have room for knick-knacks, vases, wall decor, and extra furniture like a more permanent residence would. Not only do things need to be space-friendly, but they also must be able to handle the bumpy roads ahead. That’s why we will be decorating for FUNCTIONALITY!

Check out the decorative, yet functional accessories below for your RV living area. It doesn’t take much to transform your travel trailer or motorhome into a cozy, living space that perfectly complements your adventures!


Liven Up Your RV Living Room with these Decorative (Plus Useful) Accessories

A comfortable, low pile area rug can quickly liven up a living area while adding comfort to the hard floors. Since RV space tends to flow from one room into the next, an area rug helps break up the open floor plan, creating visual boundaries and defining the living room– making a more home-like feel.

Unfortunately, campers may lack an end table in the living area. While many have a booth or dinette to set a nice, hot cup of coffee on, the living area may need a place to set loose items. An ottoman tray can turn any piece of furniture into the perfect end table you need. Plus, it doubles as a serving tray for outdoor picnics.

If you have a bare wall that could use a splash of decor, opt for something that is lightweight and won’t shatter if it is to fall off the wall during a bumpy journey. (Also, keep in mind, the bare wall can not be affected by the slide-outs extending or retracting.) This cork board USA map by adds a decorative touch to a plain wall while keeping track of your exciting adventures.

Another way to spruce up a boring wall is to add a decorative chalkboard or whiteboard. From different hanging options, you can choose to mount a chalkboard, hang one to easily remove during travel, or stick one on the wall with a vinyl decal for a less permanent and lightweight alternative. Liven up the space with inspiring travel quotes or write down important notes for the day; like a campground’s address, Wi-Fi password, gate code, or scheduled itinerary.



A wall clock serves as a both functional and decorative piece to any plain wall.
