Tour this Modern RV Remodel filled with Scandinavian Coziness
I’m so excited to be sharing a new RV tour with you today!
Kate and Keegan currently travel full-time in their renovated 5th wheel camper, along with their two dogs, Oliver and Pippin.
RV Remodel filled with Scandinavian Coziness
Prior to becoming full-timers they were both self-employed and running separate businesses, but despite their success, something was missing. They were so busy and stressed with their careers that they had little time left over to spend with one another.
That’s when they decided to switch things up. They detached from the conventional path they were on to renovate an RV and roam the country instead.
They’ve been on the road roughly 4 months now and focus on educating and encouraging others to find freedom and flexibility in their work and life. And they do it all in the comfort of their tiny home on wheels. (You can read more about that over on their website!).
One of the perks of traveling in an RV is that you get to come back to your own cozy home, and I’m pretty sure anyone would be happy to come back to this 5th wheel!
Kate and Keegan have completely transformed their outdated camper into a space that is filled with Scandinavian coziness!
Let’s dive into the tour!
What kind of RV do you have?
Forest River Wildcat 28RK
Do you travel or are you stationary?
How would you describe your decorating style?
What are you most inspired by or is there anything specific that inspired your reno?
We were most inspired by textiles. We love a monochromatic palette but wanted to use textiles to give warmth and depth to the interior style.
How long did the renovation process take?
10 months of working on it part-time on the weekends.
How much did you spend on the renovation?
What was most challenging about your renovation?
Because all of it was so new to us, we often found ourselves having to redo almost every single aspect of the reno at least 2-3x. It’s sometimes best to learn what is the best method for you or your rig after some trial and error.
What project made the most difference in the space?
The kitchen! We gutted about 80% of the kitchen and designed it for storage optimization.
What’s your favorite tiny home hack?
A kitchen that utilizes functionality & storage optimization. We are able to fit an obscene amount of appliances (Vitamix, food processor, air fryer, instant pot, full set of pots and pans… Just to name a few!) We even have a full sized pull out trash bin under the sink! Rebuilding the entire kitchen was the best thing we could have done for our tiny home transition.
Where’s your favorite place to shop for décor?
Etsy – finding handmade artisan pieces makes the small things feel special.
What’s your favorite way to hang decor?
Do you have any future projects or changes planned for the interior?
No, we want to take the time to enjoy the work we’ve done 🙂
What piece of advice would you give people starting a camper renovation?
Give yourself a budget, then add 30-40% on top of that. The same goes for your renovation timeline. Time and money seem to slip away faster than you think!
What’s your favorite aspect of tiny living?
Gratitude. We feel beyond grateful for every square inch. We enjoy and appreciate every bit of space more than we ever have before. It’s so humbling to live tiny.
What’s your least favorite aspect of tiny living?
If it’s not perfectly clean and tidy, then it can feel cluttered and messy. Finding the livable in-between takes time. Hopefully, we can settle into a cleaning routine that makes the space feel constantly tidy, without cleaning all day.
What is something you’ve learned in general or about yourself since going tiny?
I “need” less than I always thought I did. It’s amazing just how much less you need; and it’s even more amazing to find that having less doesn’t mean being less happy or satisfied.
Most asked about Product Sources:
We get asked a lot where our flooring is from. It’s vinyl plank from home depot called Sante Fe maple. Our couch is from overstock!
