5 ways to update an RV

When our family of 5 sold everything we owned to travel full time in our RV I knew that I wanted to make the 41 foot RV feel like our home on wheels. 5 ways to update your RV to make it feel like a home on wheels. 

1. Paint

We had our RV professionally painted due to a time restraint between when our house sold and moving into the RV. They painted the RV celings and walls. The paint and primer use in the RV was: Shermin Williams Extreme Bond Primer and Shermin Williams Pro Industrial Pre-catalyzed Waterbased Epoxy Extra White Paint. 

2. New furniture

Changing out the RV furniture was due to the furniture simply not working for us. The living room had two recliners which with 5 people in an RV would not work for us sitting in it. So we sold the recliners within minutes on Facebook Marketplace and moved the pull out sofa that was in the bunkhouse into the living room for a larger sitting area. The table and chairs that were in the kitchen slide we used for awhile until the chairs started to break and we wanted all 5 people to be able to sit and eat dinner. When we started looking for a new dining room table and chairs I also wanted to look for a new sofa because it was just big and bulky. I preferred to have a larger table versus sofa because we never used our sofa as we are always outside. I found the table, chairs and sectional from Living Spaces. The sectional is called the Burton Leather Sectional. 

3. Remove carpet

Our 2019 model was the last year Grand Design put carpet on the slide in the main living area. We were able to order the same flooring directly from Grand Design and put it in ourselves.

4. Sentimental items from home

There were very few things that we brought with us from our sticks and bricks home. Two signs that were hanging in our home I had cut down so that they would fit in the RV. One is the living room sign that the kids and I read everyday for a reminder. And the second is a sign of lyrics from my husband and I's first dance song that hangs in the master bedroom. 

5. Wallpaper

Peel and stick wallpaper has made such a difference in our RV. I tried multiple brands and unfortunately they either did not stay up or shrank. I found LoomWell wallpaper and have been SO happy with the quality of the paper. There are 6 different LoomWell wallpapers in our RV. I originally had some in Kendall's bunkspace and had to remove it when we remodeled the RV and moved her bed. The wallpaper came off with no issues, did not not take any paint off the walls and it did not leave any adhesive on the walls.

I hope this post makes you inspired to make some simple changes to your space to make it feel more like home.
