I am ALWAYS on the hunt for simple hacks to make my RV life more comfortable.
The key to a comfy RV life is simple systems and small comforts!
In this post I want to show you my top 3 HACKS to create a more enjoyable and comfortable motor home campsite.
1: How to easily decorate a motorhome.
Paint one wall or Cabinet or unit with an accent color:
The quickest way to bring a change to your surroundings is to make a drastic change to ONE thing, rather than to make small changes to everything.
Take this kitchen unit for example.
When I first built the unit it was a normal plain color without any stand out features.
It was boring and did not add any color to the motorhome.
I painted it bright orange to give a much needed splash of color to the kitchen area.
A few short hours work completely transformed the drab kitchen into a bright space.
Use colorful oil cloth on your table:
When I made the table for my sprinter van conversion, I thought about just painting it white as usual.
But then I got the idea of stapling an oil cloth to the table to brighten it up a little.
I found a huge array of bright and colorful oil cloth coverings in my local hardware store.
I chose a map of the world for my table and it does add a big slash of personality to the surroundings.
2: How to make your camper look bigger.
There is only one answer to this question, that is – Use an awning to make your camper bigger!
You could go all the way to getting a drive away awning which will add give you the opportunity to leave things at the campsite when you decide to go off on a road trip for the day.
Also, a closed awning will give you a larger area to have a your table setup and lounge chairs.
an awning makes life on the road a much more pleasant experience for sure.

3: How to decorate your RV campsite.
When you are staying in one spot for a prolonged period, one question always arises – how do I decorate my campsite to make it pretty?
Here is a couple of tips on how to achieve a more comfortable and enjoyable RV campsite.
Get some colorful pieces like a blow up ottoman:
I found a website called Comfyottoman.com, and there is a great post about outdoor blow up furniture to brighten up your patio.
The blow up ottoman idea really caught my eye as I think it can add color and comfort in one go!
I always bring an outside ground mat to lay on the ground in the awning area.
This can add a nice comfortable area, plus some color and texture your own travelling deck!
Here are some examples from Amazon to brighten up your awning area.
I hope you find this useful, and I hope you are able to create a beautiful RV campsite the next time you hit the road!
