Creativity and Comfort On the Road
As interest in RVing increases, many curious customers are discovering the charm and creativity that goes into making the most of limited space. Clever design can make small spaces seem like plush homes for the whole family. These 15 ingenious designs show what is possible in the world of motor coaches and camping trailers.
Fabulous Farmhouse Features
RV remodeler Sarah Lemp adds all the touches of home to the custom interiors of her RVs, such as this 1997 Georgie Boy Cruisemaster renovation. Lemp went for a farmhouse look by white washing and painting the cabinets, painting the walls white, and adding a Tic Tac tile backsplash and wood slat walls, among other touches.
This bright, cheerful 1979 Airstream Overlander was designed by Lisa Jacobs of Vacay Vans. This sustainably renovated interior includes non-toxic wool insulation, VOC-free paint and reclaimed wood elements including a built-in bench and accent wall. In order to maximize storage in this open-concept trailer, the kitchen countertop spans more than 12 feet and holds both kitchen and bedroom storage. The rainbow mosaic Flor carpet tiles are easy to remove and clean. An ultra narrow console table from Wayfair doubles as the perfectly sized dining and work table in this fun vintage trailer.
Luxe Van Life
The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van with interior retrofit by Airstream seems to defy the laws of physics by ingeniously placing a queen-sized bed, bathroom, kitchen with refrigerator, storage cabinets and a 1000-watt solar power system into an easy-to-maneuver van of 19 feet. This van, Honu, is available for rent in the Seattle area and also has an outdoor shower with hot water.

TAXA Outdoors Mantis
Designed by former NASA space architect Garrett Finney, TAXA Outdoor’s Mantis trailer sleeps four adults in its 105-square-foot interior that also includes a galley kitchen, queen-sized bed, two bunk beds, sitting area for six people, dinette, pop-up roof for plenty of head clearance, 20-gallon water tank with hot water for the sink and even a bathroom with shower and cassette toilet. At 19-feet long, the Mantis can be towed by many passenger vehicles.
Get Your Game On
Customized for kids, this custom Celebrity trailer available for rent in Conyers, Georgia, has an arcade-style Pacman game and other console games for its two big-screen TVs. Divided into two units with private entrances, this trailer comes with other comforts of home including a fireplace, queen-sized bed, reclining theater sofa, a full bathroom and kitchen, and even a make-up station.

Work From Home, Wherever That May Be
For the past seven years, digital nomad Joel Smith has lived and worked out of his 37-foot-long Holiday Rambler Motorhome. His app, the Ultimate RV Checklist, helps new RVers quickly and safely set up their campsites and provides other RV-related info. He has reconfigured his dining area into his digial workstation in front of a blackout window so he can take in the ever-changing scenery when he likes. He met his girlfriend, who lives in a 17-foot Casita Travel Trailer, on the road. "Working from the road gives us the opportunity to step right outside the RV when the workday is done and instantly explore the local area," he says. "Maybe we go for a hike, try new types of food, take the inflatable kayak out on a lake or take a ride on our E-bikes. It’s always somewhere interesting and if you think you’ve done it all, you just pack up and move to the next spot."
Happier Camper's Retro HC Series
Retro-style and completely customizable, Happier Camper's HC1 and HC2 allow for a modular interior that can sleep up to five. You enter through the side door or the rear hatch door, and quickly plug in what tables, benches and beds you need. The RVs are small enough to fit into a standard parking place, and light enough to be pulled by a passenger car.
SylvanSport's GO camper trailer combines the storage space of a trailer with the simpicity of a pop-up camper. This lightweight system tows easily behind most vehicles, and the tent extends into the trailer bed for more than 6 feet by 4 feet of standing headroom, and beds that are over 7-feet long. A rack system makes it easy to carry bikes, kayaks and other toys. The Bed/Table Panel System is lightweight and capable of holding hundreds of pounds as a bed or shelves.
Palomino Puma XLE Lite
Bowlus Road Chief Endless Highways Performance
With its sleek aluminum exterior and retro interior, the Bowlus Road Chief may feel more like a private jet than a trailer. The Endless Highways Performance Edition features skylights and windows for plenty of natural light, and heated floors to keep you comfortable year-round. Customers can customize their trailer with more than 56 million possible interior combinations.
Colorado Teardrop Camper
Designed for adventurers with 20 inches of ground clearance, Colorado Teardrop Campers have room for a queen-size mattress that folds into a couch, galley with water tank, bench seating, dining table and plenty of cabinets to secure items. The back hatch flips up for even more storage in maplewood shelving. Add-ons include an outdoor shower and pop-up tent that attaches to the roof, and insulated walls keep the camper comfortable no matter how hot or cold it is outside.
Enjoy the High Country
The Keystone Montana High Country 5th Wheel has a sleeping loft for a total of six beds, a full bath, full kitchen, living room, dining area, stacked washer and dryer and even a wardrobe closet. Floor plans and designs are completely customizable.

Luxury Living on the Road
Available in three models, the Newmar King Aire motor coach is a rolling luxury apartment featuring top-of-the-line appliances such as a Viking stovetop and full-size refrigerator, Italian leather upholstery with built-in massage features, Tuscan maple hardwood cabinets with flat panel doors and a diamond gloss finish, a polished quartz countertop, a hammer-metal finish farmhouse sink, pull-out pantry shelves and European-style cabinetry, cedar paneling in the bedroom wardrobe, stacked washer and dryer, and full indoor and outdoor entertainment systems. All those and other details make its starting price of $1.2 million seem like a bargain. Not ready to buy? Consider renting an RV first.
