RV Furniture | Top Sofas to Replace The Seating In Your RV

RV Furniture | Are you looking to upgrade and replace the seating in your RV?

Is it outdated, broken, and just flat-out uncomfortable to sit or sleep on?

If you answered yes, then this post is for you!

During any RV renovation, replacing your seating is a final touch to add character, match the new décor, and make the space feel new again.

So, if you’re looking for some sofa inspiration from other RV’er’s, where to buy and more than scroll on! 🙂

But, first a few tips on what you can choose from and how to get the old couches out.

RV Sofa Ideas

Tip #1 – Measure first!!

There are many different sizes of sofas you can choose from when replacing your RV Furniture. The last thing you want is to order a couch that is too large or too small for the space.

Our couch is 65 inches long, although we could fit a long couch in the space, 65 inches is a perfect size.

Tip #2 – How to remove the existing RV Couch

I remember reading a Facebook post about someone asking how to remove an existing couch from the tiny RV door, and I thought this was a great question!!

Usually, the couches are placed in the RV before the slide(s) or the walls are complete so they didn’t have to hassle getting the large furniture through the small doors.

Now, this also depends on the style of RV you have. If you have a toy hauler, it would be easy to replace a couch.

However, for an RV like ours, getting the couch in or out is a challenge. So, the solution; just like a couch is built, it can be taken apart.

So, if you have just a door and no toy hauler RV, I recommend taking the couch or all the RV Furniture out in pieces. You will need the proper tools, patience, and time to do this, but it will make it easier and possible to get the bulky and heavy RV couches out!

Tip #3 – Buy a couch that can be put together inside the RV

When you purchase your new couch, it’s recommended to purchase one that can be assembled.

Many places like Amazon, Wayfair, and Ikea offer this option to make it easier to carry and transport. 

This also cuts out the “how do we fit it through the RV door” scenario.

Types of Seating you can choose

Regular Sofa – This option is best if you do not plan on having guests join you for your camping trips. There are also more styles and options if you choose from.

Futon Sofabed or Pull-out bed couch conversion – There are many options to choose from with a futon or pull-out bed. These are great RV couch options if you like to have guests while camping or if you’re full-time.

Day Bed – These are usually about 74 inches, so I would definitely measure the space before going the day bed route. The plus side of choosing a day bed is if you have a guest they will be able to sleep on a twin size mattress versus a futon or pull-out bed conversion. A day bed also has the option to have a trundle which you can have an additional twin mattress for another guest.

RV Couch – You can even replace the existing and probably worn-out sofas with a new couch that is made for RVs.

Build your own – I have seen some crafty individuals build their own seating in their RV. The nice option of building your own is you create multipurpose storage along with the seating. If you are wanting to go this route and really customize the space, I suggest checking out some Youtube videos.

Where to buy the best couch options for your RV

Amazon is my first go-to when buying anything for our RV. We have Amazon Prime, so we can get free shipping on many items including sofas. They even have RV couches, if you want to swap your existing seating for couches or chairs that are made for RVs.

Ikea is the ultimate assemble yourself furniture store. Everything comes in boxes with instructions and tools to DIY your own. Ikea is a great place to buy a new couch for your RV because you can even customize the sizes to your liking and space.

Wayfair is great to shop for a new couch because they have many different options and sometimes you can find a great deal or sale.

Target, Costco, or Nebraska Furniture Mart are some of the other places you could take a look at to find the perfect couch for your RV!

RV Renovation Tour | A Rustic Bohemian Home on Wheels with @Our.Own.Beat

RV Renovation Tour | A Rustic Bohemian Home on Wheels with @Our.Own.Beat

I’m so excited to highlight this family’s RV renovation.

Whit and Gui with their 2 kids and 2 dogs live and travel full-time in their remodeled 5th wheel.

Their RV story begins December of 2019 when they decided to rent out their home, sell their belongings, buy an RV, and travel full-time.

Before purchasing their RV, Whit and Gui already decided they wanted to renovate it and make it home.

Looking through their Instagram and pictures of their RV, I like to describe their style as Rustic Bohemian.

The warm earthy tones, the rustic wood trim, and the play with color, textures, and patterns give this RV the perfect combination of Rustic Bohemian.

I think they definitely accomplished their goal by making their RV a cozy and inviting home on wheels!

So check out their RV Renovation and get inspired!

After Pictures

Now that you’ve seen what Whit and Gui’s RV looked like before, check out the amazing after pictures.

It is totally transformed from the basic factory decor.

By painting their walls and cabinets, changing out the hardware, and getting creative by building a fold-down island, they made this 5th wheel their own.

Every detail of this home on wheels flows and provides a comfortable feeling of home.

I also love how they’ve created play space for their little ones. So, even when they’re on the road, the kids can still play dress up and more.

 

After – RV Kitchen


After – RV Bedroom

After – RV Living Room


Final Thoughts

I hope you love this RV 5th wheel renovation as much as I do.

There are so many little details from the custom-built island extension to the gorgeous wood trim on the slides that can bring you inspiration for your RV.

RV Wallpaper | How to use peel & stick wallpaper to transform your Camper

RV Wallpaper | How to use peel & stick wallpaper to transform your Camper

RV Wallpaper | So many RVer’s and even home interior designers are embracing a new style and bringing back wallpaper.

For years the idea of wallpaper was a tacky way to decorate because the patterns available were not pleasing.

Well, that was then!

Now, it’s become a great way to add texture, patterns, and character to any space.

Wallpaper has also come a long way with availability to patterns.

Here is some ways you can add wallpaper in your camper to spruce up your campers interior.

Can you use Peel and Stick wallpaper in an RV?

Absolutely, YES!

We used a shiplap peel and stick wallpaper in our RV Bathroom.

Now, the wallpaper we used was white, so we decided to paint the wall ‘white’ before adding the wallpaper.

Just so you know, our walls were beige vinyl before painting them. I noticed when I tried to add the white shiplap wallpaper, the color of the wallpaper become faded. So by painting the wall first, allowing it to dry, then adding the wallpaper allowed the colors to be true.

Tip: Clean your walls before adding the peel and stick wallpaper to ensure the paper sticks and there is no dust. 

Quick note: You can also use an extra spray adhesive for an extra stick (if you don’t plan on removing it). Sometimes if you store your RV, the heat could cause the paper to peel. Although this has not happened to me, I have heard of it happening. 

Can you wallpaper over the RV wallpaper?

This depends on if your wallpaper is a strip or covers the whole wall. If you have a wallpaper strip, it is best to remove that strip from the wall first. The reason being is so you don’t have any uneven lines in your new wallpaper.

Tip: Make sure your walls are smooth before application of new wallpaper

Does Peel And Stick Wallpaper come off easily?

The simple answer is YES! Compared to traditional wallpaper or paint; peel and stick wallpaper is easy to remove and leaves little to no residue.
 
Peel and Stick Wallpaper is also a better option because it’s quick and easy to install. Plus, the application and clean up are super easy compared to traditional wallpaper. There is no sticky glue or messy paint to deal with.

How to use Peel and Stick Wallpaper

I feel like using the peel and stick wallpaper is super easy. You just have to make sure you have the right tools in order to keep air bubbles from accumulating under the paper.

You’ll want to get a wallpaper tool kit to help you measure, cut, and smooth it out once you apply it to the walls.

I love using the peel and stick wallpaper because you don’t have to deal with the sticky and messy glue.

Applying the peel and stick wallpaper is easy!

  1. Measure the piece of wall
  2. Measure the paper
  3. Cut accordingly
  4. Peel off the backing
  5. Stick on the wall slowly while applying pressure from the smoothing tool to release the air bubbles.
