Front Living Room: RV Decorating Ideas

Motorhome remodeling was something we weren’t willing to spend money on…but with a little creative thinking, the ideas we came up with were incredibly affordable.

When you are frugal rv living, you will recognize quickly that you will get what you pay for, where rvs are concerned. As we’ve said before, you shouldn’t overspend on a motorhome or travel trailer…just make sure the important parts are functioning and sound (appliances, motor, no water damage, good tires and axles).
