If you’ve ever stepped foot into any RV toy hauler, you’re sure to notice how bland, boring and brown their interiors are. The decor lacks personality and zest. While I get that RV manufacturers are purposeful in their design concepts by trying to remain neutral to appeal to everyone, I still think they could try just a little bit harder to make the interiors more stylish and less masculine. Well, we made that happen to our former Heartland Cyclone toy hauler.
RV owners have taken RV interior decorating to a whole level making their motorhomes, travel trailers and fifth wheels more livable and appealing. They have stepped out of the dreary and drab to func tional and fab in interiordecorating. RV owners have applied the same customization they have or had in their sticks and bricks homes.
Anyone who owns a cat knows if you don’t provide a place for your mini lions and tigers to scratch, your furniture will be one big heaping mess of ripped up remnants. I don’t know if its just luck or that we’ve just been good forceful cat parents that we’ve not had furniture issues. It might be because we’ve always had the biggest, most badass cat climbing towers known to man. Okay, maybe not ‘that’ badass but our resident mousers sure loved it.
You’ve no doubt, seen a trend lately in RV upgrades. Everything is WHITE; walls, cabinets, textiles, window shades, etc. And we get that, its certainly a personal choice. But, in all-things-decor, its a trend that will change; whether it takes weeks, months or even years.

Though we’ve not taken our two year old luxury fifth wheel down to bare bones (ie. removing cabinets, major reconstruction), we have made modifications and improvements; one of which was removing all of the carpet and replacing it with new solid surface flooring.
We hope you’ve been enjoying our RV Interior Design and Decor blog series. In the past six months, we’ve been remodeling and personalizing our fifth wheel RV.. We’ve researched many different products that made ours a little unique than standard 5th wheels.
One would think the bathroom being the smallest room in an RV would be the easiest to remodel and be the least time consuming. It was actually the most challenging because it was such a small space. It also involved temporarily removing the toilet to do some modifications. But it was worth it because our makeover was a resounding SUCCESS!
