Cute Camper Decorating Ideas You Can Actually Afford

Campers are cool! New, old, big, or small – it doesn’t matter what kind of camper it is, it’s gonna be awesome and it’s gonna have unlimited potential (I may be biased). Thanks to the recent camper trend, you can find plenty of neat campers for sale online at a good price. We found these cute camper decorating ideas while scrolling through Pinterest and think you’ll love them as much as we do.


Types of Campers

There are a few different kinds of campers, and they can be called different things depending on your location. Some people use the term ‘RV’ to include motor homes only. Here’s a quick list of the most commonly used definitions to describe most campers:

Travel Trailer (Caravan)

According to Wikipedia, a travel trailer, or camper, is a home unit towed behind a vehicle. They vary from basic models to huge homes on wheels that can accommodate large families.

5th Wheel

Go RVing describes a 5th Wheel Travel Trailer as the same concept as a pull behind travel trailer, but it is constructed with a raised forward section that is attached to a vehicle with a fifth wheel hitch.

Motor Home

The dictionary describes a motorhome as a motor vehicle that is equipped like a trailer, with all the amenities of home including kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms. Basically, it’s a camper that has its own motor.


Wikipedia describes a recreational vehicle, or RV, as a broad term used for pretty much any kind of travel trailer or motorhome that is used for camping or part-time living. They can be a basic setup with living, sleeping, and bathroom area or they can be luxurious with entertainment centers, multiple bedrooms, and a full-size kitchen and bathrooms. Park model homes are considered recreational vehicles which we think is silly as they can easily be beefed up and made perfect for full-time living (but what do we know?).

See how one mom turned an old RV into a cozy retreat.
