(Camper) Design Vibes: Farmhouse-Inspired Fifth Wheel
If you love rustic-modern design, tiny houses, or Joanna Gaines (and who doesn’t?!), I’m pretty sure this renovated farmhouse-inspired fifth wheel will make your heart skip a beat!
In case you missed it, we started a new design series last week where we highlight renovated campers (and other inspiring spaces) every Friday! Our goal is to share how others have reimagined their homes, in hopes of inspiring you to create a space you love, regardless of the square footage.
This week we’re visiting the home of The Joneses, a family of 3 that live in a farmhouse-inspired fifth wheel!
Modern Farmhouse-Inspired Fifth Wheel
With plans to move overseas in the next year, Van and Lauren decided to sell (almost) everything and move into a fifth wheel, rather than moving in and out of homes.
They renovated this 5th wheel in 6 weeks and loved it so much they did a second one! That second camper is also absolutely stunning and currently for sale (although I doubt for long)!
These two are such an incredible team and it’s easy to see how their combined skills are something pretty spectacular. Not only do they have a sense of humor and keep it real, but they know what’s important (hint: it’s not stuff), and share their highs and lows over on their Instagram account and blog.
This has to be one of my absolute favorite camper renovations and is a great example of why you can’t judge a book by it’s cover.
Type of Camper:
2004 Keystone Everest
How much did you spend on the renovation?
What has been your favorite place to explore so far during your journey?
The Nantahala gorge!

What led you to the tiny life?
I read Marie Kondo’s book, The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and I couldn’t get the idea out of my head that we should live with less, more meaningful things. We were challenged by the way Jesus lived His life so simply, and joyfully. He thanked God the Father for every meal he was provided, and he learned to be content in all circumstances. With our little baby, we have realized how important it is for us to implement these Biblical examples’ way of life. We want her to see how her parents can be content in plenty and in want. This started with moving into a ‘tiny house’ and learning to get along well, even when things don’t go the way we expect them to.
How often do you travel?
4-5 times a year!
Who do you travel with?
Friends and family
How long did it take you to remodel your RV/Camper?
Did you do everything yourself, pay a professional or do a mix of both?
We did it all OURSELVES! Hard to believe!
Paint Colors Used?
Sherwin Williams Passive Gray, and Iron Ore
If you updated the flooring, what kind did you use?
What is your favorite project or piece of decor and why?
The buffalo plaid wallpaper, because it adds an extra little dose of beauty to the whole camper.
What was your least favorite project and why?
The stick on tile we thought would be the death of us!
What was most challenging about your renovation?
Finishing! There were always more projects to finish-or so it seemed!
What project made the most difference in the space?
The paint I’d say!
What do you enjoy most about your space following the transformation? Is there a specific area you spend most of your time?
We love all of it, but particularly the kitchen/living area!
Where’s your favorite place to shop for décor?
Hobby Lobby (we affectionately call her hobs lobs)
What piece of advice would you give people starting an RV/Camper renovation?
GO IN ORDER-never step out of the order because honestly, it will take you longer if you don’t finish the projects you should finish first before moving on to the next one
What’s your favorite aspect of tiny living?
Simplicity, easiness/quickness of cleaning!
What is something you’ve learned in general or about yourself since going tiny?
I HATE cleaning haha, I realized how much more of a clean freak I am when I am in a tiny space that takes less time to clean but has to be cleaned more often!
What’s your favorite meal to cook in your tiny home?
Chicken n Dumplings
Thank you Lauren, Van, and Piper for sharing your home with us!
