Class B RV Interior Mods for Fulltime Living
So, how do you like your van?
We get asked that a lot. I think it’s the small size. People - other RVers mainly - wonder how we can live in a 19’ campervan comfortably.
For me, it’s all about being organized. And comfortable. And “chasing away the ugly” parts of the van - faded woodwork, etc.
We’ve covered how we’ve organized the Class B kitchen and bathroom. And how we’ve managed clothes storage and device charging.
We’ve done a bunch of other things to the interior of the van, so I’m covering them here in this catch-all post. Photos and details below.
Up front we replaced the uncomfortable "blue marshmallow" RV captain chairs with more comfortable bucket seats from an '02 Dodge minivan.
This hook is just right of the main side entry door. When parked we loop the seat belt through it. Otherwise the hanging seat belt blocks part of the entry way.
Before and after of installing a new floor. The new floor is just peel and stick tiles and cost < $20.00.
The rear door didn't have an interior grab handle, so I added one.
I bought a $3 mantle clock at Goodwill, pulled the clock portion out, and mounted it up between the front seats.
I removed the fabric from this entry wall, painted it, and mounted a photo frame with pictures from our travels.
I also painted the (sunfaded) outer portion of the wall and put decal versions of our logo and name there. We can choose to display them or not by just opening or closing the left side door.
This shelf is at the very back of the van. We keep books there but they kept falling out while the van was in motion. I snagged a cargo net from a junkyard car and installed it to keep everything in place.
The radio didn't work, and we use a bluetooth speaker anyway. I created a filler panel and adapted a GPS mount to attach to the filler panel. The wiring all runs behind the dash.
I used Command Hooks to make a storage spot for my different glasses.
I installed magnetic phone mounts above the bed. We now can lay back and stream movies from Amazon Prime.
