In the past, RV vans were earmarked for summer vacation family trips to national parks or were synonymous with after-retirement goals. Nowadays, people are getting camper vans not only to road trip across the U.S., but also to downsize and live with a smaller footprint. Since more and more folks are choosing to live on the road, there has been a flood of stylish, quirky, and downright swoon-worthy camper vans with creative remodeling and interior decorating. With all sorts of different aesthetics, these campers will make you want to join the van life yourself. And if you’re not quite ready to live in a tiny home? These vans will at the very least inspire you to spruce up your own home with some of their design elements. Check out some of the best ones below.

Country Farmhouse Chic

Bonnie’s RV renovation transformed her camper into a country farmhouse. With a green and brass kitchen, delicate floral accent walls, and moss green velvet seating areas, the camper has a feeling of a cottage in the Irish countryside.

Modern Home On Wheels

Ashley’s camper has gone in a different direction, and her RV has a modern Scandinavian take. A bold black and white backsplash pops against butcher block countertops, and helps tie in the dark cabinet handles. The rest of the camper has simple touches, like cacti planted in terracotta pots, and patterned pillows adding some interest.

Boho Glam RV

Liz and Tim aren’t afraid of a little pattern clashing, and it pays off. A black and white fern print takes over the ceiling, and is offset with a wooden geometric kitchen wall and a pastel cactus print backsplash.

Scandinavian-Cool RV

Jill likes a minimalist aesthetic, and her camper shows just how creative that can be. It’s the small details that make this camper shine, like the chalkboard-drawn TV on the kitchen wall.

A Mid-Century Dream

Nate and Taylor have a sharp eye for vintage, and for making their home on wheels look like a cozy flea market treasure trove. The space feels tidy thanks to its neutral color palette, but has plenty of personality thanks to the tchotchkes scattered about.

Subtle Boho Touches

This is how you do subtle bohemian. Sheena made the most out of her small space by squeezing in not only a bedroom and kitchen, but also a living room and office! Her standout pieces include a crochet fringe curtain over her bed, a wooden door to make the place feel more like an apartment, and plenty of plant accents.

An Airy Wooden Cottage

Ben and Meag’s camper feels less like a home on wheels and more like a charming cottage. The bus is covered in dreamy, weathered wood that has been recovered from various spots in Maine. The countertop comes from a farmhouse in Maine, and the kitchen table is a real maple butcher block from a farmhouse in Old Orchard Beach. The wooden floors were salvaged from various New England mills, including a 1899 Dorchester nail factory. The space mixes earthy wooden touches with industrial pieces, like the original cage doors from the bus.

A Minimalist & Airy Camper

Annie created an airy camper van on a budget. She has teal bedrooms, vintage chairs reupholstered with 1940s barkcloth curtains, and splashes of color in the form of yellow curtains and pastel pillows and blankets. The RV also has a kids’ room complete with bunk beds, so it truly feels like a tiny apartment on wheels.
