A popular choice with families and those who want a touch of luxury on their adventures, RVs are certainly much more convenient than trying to load everyone up in a car crammed with gear. Then there’s the time-sucking drag of setting up tents once you arrive. 

Though they may be far more luxurious than a tiny tent, that doesn’t mean they’re going to be ideally suited to your needs when they roll off the showroom floor. That’s why we’ve lined up these tips to add a touch of comfort to your RV.

There’s Nothing Like A Home Cooked Meal

One of the simplest ways to make your RV more homey is to make use of the kitchen facilities within it. While cooking on an open fire is certainly fun, sometimes you just want a nice home-cooked feed. 

When used properly, the mini kitchen in your RV can help you achieve this. Just make sure you pack the right cookware for induction cooktops. Many popular RV brands fit their vehicles with induction cooktops as they provide the efficiency of gas but with far greater safety.

Increase Your Livable Space

Although RVs are designed to provide a suitable home-style living space, they won’t be the most comfortable place to spend all of your time while on holiday. Few people ever set out to spend the weekend holed up in their RV. However, unexpectedly weather and other circumstances can lead to you being stuck under cover. 

A great way to improve your comfort levels in this type of circumstance is to set up your RV to also provide an outdoor living space. An awning to keep rain out, a couple of LED Light Bars so you’re not left in the dark, and a fold-out table and chair set can go a long way! 

Power Up

The hum of a generator can be quite disruptive to your peaceful afternoon, but until recently, if you wanted power, it was just something you had to deal with. These days, however, RVs can easily be fitted with a solar system. This will not only reduce noise pollution, but your fuel bill as well. 

Don’t Get Cold Feet

You would be surprised by how much more comfortable and homely a simple rug can make your RV. Nobody wants cold feet, and these crafty little things are the perfect way to prevent this issue while also adding a personal touch. Plus, if you get sick of the design, you can easily swap it out for a new one.

Get Creative With Crockery

In our homes, we tend to like our plates, mugs, and bowls to match. When you’re out adventuring, however, it’s a lot easier to get creative without feeling judged. Pick those cute cups with the slogan that makes you giggle and the bowls with that beautiful pattern – no-one but you is going to know or care, and that small, personal touch can make things feel a lot more comfortable. 

Sweet Dreams

Our last, but far from least, tip is to add mattress toppers to the standard beds that came in your RV. This option is far cheaper than replacing the less-than-plush mattresses that probably came with it and can add major comfort points in two seconds flat. 

So there you have it, our top six tips that will add a touch of comfort to your RV. Let us know in the comments what else you’ve done to make your home away from home a little more comfortable!
