This Pop-Up Camper Makeover cost less than $200!

A few years ago Lisa Rice decided to combine her love for camping with her love for making things pretty. She fell in love with pop-up campers because of how compact they are without feeling claustrophobic, and it didn’t take long for a new hobby to emerge.

She has since transformed several pop-ups, and today we’re going to take a peek inside one of them.

“If white in a trailer is wrong, I don’t want to be right! 😁 Actually, the dinette seats are vinyl and wipeable and the bedding is bleach-able, so it works!”

- Lisa from Rice Camp

Not only is the inside bright, airy, and summer-ready, but it was completely transformed for under $200!

Let’s dive into the tour!

    love, love the update! we had a pop-up in 1977 and took 30 day trip from virginia to washington,oregon, and california and returned to virginia. My daughter and i call it the trip from hell, but it is a memory for our family. we took it to San Antonio, texas in 1980. my husband was in the Air Force. good times. we are now in our 70s and have a 24 foot travel trailer in texas after a volkswagen camper in italy, 5th wheels in colorado. Thanks to the Air Force we have lived in 9 states and japan, italy and South Korea. after 28 years in the Air Force bob has been retired almost 26 years and we are still travelling for 2-3 months a year, going 2000-3000 miles. would not trade a minute of our life for anything. get out there and see the usa!
