You’ll find many DIY projects to make your RV unique to your family and many of them will make camping or RVing more enjoyable. When you can make more room for storage or add some hand made decorations, your RV really becomes your second home. Try these DIY projects before you hit the road this spring to make your RV function better.

Shower Shelf Walls

Many built-in shelves in RV showers are open, which means that all of your bath products slide right off when the RV is in motion. This is an inconvenience you don’t have to live with. By simply taking some plexiglass (you can get some at any hardware or home improvement store) you can fashion retaining walls for your shelf. Use clear acrylic double-sided mounting tape and apply two 1/4-inch h-type clear shower door seals to each side of the shelf. You can then slot your plexiglass panel into the door seal.

Sliding Storage

Pass through storage is great, especially when you have a ton of stuff to pack in there, but reaching into the middle can be a chore sometimes. To make life easier, add a deep slide out cargo tray to the pass through storage. You’ll be able to pull the slide out so you can reach everything.

Office Space

If you have a bunk house but no longer use the bunk house because the kids are grown and gone, add a desk in the area. You’ll have a quiet space to use the computer for fun. Or if you work while you travel the country, you’ll have a quiet place to work.

Even if you don’t have a bunk house, but have extra bunks in the rear of the RV, you can convert the bottom bunk into an office space. Whether you leave the bunk in place and build a raised platform to fashion a desk or you remove the bottom bunk to make room for a desk, you’ll have a great place to work.


If you can’t find any great decorations for your RV and you like the rustic look, make your own wood pictures, frames, or clocks. You can purchase clock workings from any craft store, or even complete clock kits with numbers. Use a couple pieces of scrap wood to add a saying or a picture to with Hodge Podge or wood burning. You could even make customized picture frames to make the RV more rustic.
