Our Pop – Up Camper

Hello Friends! I have been waiting to share our pop – up camper with you for a while now and finally have it ready to share! You may have seen my original post here when I shared our camper for the first time with some updates as well.

Since then I traded out some curtains, bedding (which was provided by Beddy’s and we installed some simple click n lay laminate floors.

Beddy’s bedding makes it on to every bed we have in our home or on wheels ;). I know it is no secret we love this bedding… But believe or not it is seriously a dream for campers! There is obviously very little wiggle room in this tiny space so having this bedding that zips up and requires no folding, tucking etc.. is extremely convenient.

Though I usually pick white bedding, I was excited to use this fun Checked Out print and layer it with their  Spotted Blanket and was confident it would help hide the fun of camping (aka dirt) a little better than white in a trailer ;)…

Here are the floors close up. Overall, it was an easy install… the hubby did a great job and there were a few tricky spots he worked through and in the end I was amazed how it changed the space.

I considered doing some painted and stenciled floors (which would have worked well), but also liked the idea of wood tones too over the old laminate.

Faux and easy accessories can transport easy but make it feel like home away from home.

The comforts of coffee, soft lighting and more are feasible with little pop- ups and I am so happy for it! Camping is not my strength but having a little spot like this makes it a win for everyone.

I couldn’t resist a fern and some boho-chic decor touches either. Now clearly I wouldn’t pack this on a legit camping trip, lol. When you are parked in your driveway though it doesn’t hurt to accessorize a little =)!

Though I did paint the cabinets a couple years back they are in need of a touch up, which will happen some time later this summer. Time to play first!

I haven’t actually cooked a real meal inside of here yet and maybe I never will ;), we have a perfect camping barbecue that makes all the meal making simple.

Wish me luck as we will be planning a few stays in here this summer! I’ll let you know how it goes. I really enjoyed putting this post together as it was such a reminder of how even the smallest of spaces, rooms, homes, etc… can be big in the “style” department. And more than that, I just know we are going to have some sweet memories in this traveling vacation “home” and that is what matters the most. All the laughs, games, camp fires, (small grumbles from me when I can’t handle “camp”, ha!) and adventures make this little gem of ours. It applies to any place you are together and putting your love into it.

Thanks so much for visiting with me today! I’ll see you later tonight at The Inspiration Gallery!

A big thank you to Beddy’s for sending us their bedding and all opinions are 100% my own.

    1. Hi Linda,
      I will double check on the name – but it was the gray tone from our local Costco. I said the same thing about having it all throughout the house – wishful thinking I suppose ;)… Thanks so much!

  1. Love it!! The trailer looks adorable. The lifetime memories made while camping, will get sweeter over time. Think ahead 20 years… you’ll be so glad you camped with kiddos. Promise!!
    (I need to check out that bedding for our rig!)

    1. Hi Connie =),
      yes we are excited to compromise and make some fun memories as a family and have loved getting to enjoy this sweet pop-up, thank you!

  2. We had so much fun in our pop up when the kids were little. It never looked like that though! We did put guests in it a few times in our driveway. I could have used your great ideas then!

    1. Sara isn’t that special all the trips and memories you made. I am excited to have those as well and great idea for guests! I have wondered if we might start doing that… Thanks so much for visiting and sharing with me.

  3. I adore your work Annie! You brought everything together so beautifully! I enjoy glamping ;)& this darling space would make it a DREAM! Have fun on your summer adventures.

    Where are the cute details from?….The rugs, outdoor pillows hanging plants, accessories…just love every touch❤️

    1. Rachel that is so kind, thank you! I am so glad to have you here! The rugs are from h&m home, the outdoor pillow was from Grandin Road, the smaller faux fern was from Michaels, the plant hanger from JoAnn Fabrics. Thanks again!

  4. Hands down the coolest pop up I’ve ever seen! We had a small pop up years ago, then a travel trailer, then back to a pop up with a slide, bathroom (with shower, sink, toilet), cooktop, oven, microwave, fridge…basically the works for a pop up, but ours is your basic without any painting of cabinets like yours or new flooring. I’m going to check out Beddy’s for sheets, etc. Thank you for the inspiration. You did a fabulous job!

    1. Jennifer that sounds like a wonderful trailer and I would love a little shower/toilet etc in ours. I bet you have had many special trips with that camper! Thank you very much for sharing and for stopping by!

  5. Hi! Love the pop up makeover!!! I have a pop up as well and we did a redo on it as well with hardwood floors, gray slipcovers for all the cushions, curtains from shower curtains and painted white cabinets and replaced counters with wood. I would love to get this beddy for our camper…what size is your bed and what size beddy did you get? Also, did you paint the ceiling etc? Looks so fresh and clean!! Love!!!

    1. Hi Angie! These were full size and then we have blow up mattress on top of the thinner mattress pads that come with the camper. It was pretty bright out when I photographed and things have faded a bit (but the colors are gray inside). Thank you so so much – I really appreciate your words and enjoy that beautiful camper of yours! Sounds just lovely!

  6. Love it all!! So sweet! Looking forward to checking out the bedding! Did you build the seating for the camper? Looks comfy too!

  7. Cutest thing EVER and you did a great job! We traveled cross country years back in a pop up and I’d love to do that again sometime!

    1. Janet that is such a compliment, thank you! And what an adventure to do something like that… we have had talks of something similar and I can imagine the wonderful memories you made and things you saw! xo

    1. Vanessa thanks so much! I will track down the box and get some details – I do know it was the gray toned option from our local Costco. I’ll get that info for you though!

  8. Annie, stop! This is amazing! I’ve wanted a camper for awhile now and now I really, really want one! Let’s go camping together!
    Hugs, Jamie

  9. I love what you have done with your pop up! We have a pop up that we want to update. Are your cupboards real wood or MDF? Ours are MDF and I’m just wondering what it would take to paint them. Any tips would be much appreciated! Did you just put covers on the normal seating cushions or did you get something custom? Thanks for the inspiration

    1. Hi Dianna,
      thank you so much I appreciate it! We just painted over straight over our MDF (with something that had mold/moisture resistance) but there is definitely some chipping that I will need to fix up this summer. That being said, I would think Chalk paint would work even better – although I need to look into the moisture issues and chalk paint. I’ll keep you updated as we fix up the paint this summer! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  10. Totally rad and beautiful and stunning. Only you would know how to being a pop up to life! Love your style!!! I want to have a cup of tea with you in here!!!

  11. How did you hang the tension rod for the curtains? Can the curtains and rods be left up when closing up the camper? I’m looking into replacing my pop up camper curtains very soon.

  12. Cute, cute camper! What curtain rods did you use and how did you attach them? Do you need to remove them when you close up camper? Thanks so much! Kim

      1. Hi Cathy, we used rods and I am hoping to share a simple how to post this week! Stay tuned and thanks so much!

    1. Hi Julia, thank you and reasonable question ;)… Honestly, we wash what gets dirty, I don’t get upset if something stains and we take off shoes when coming in. We even bring a portable vacuum for while we camp – lol. Not for everyone – but works for us!

  13. I too am wondering about the curtain rods. Esp in bed area. How did you hang them? We just got a vintage
    Pop up and the curtains are heavy old that are on a track. Want a something light and airy that could be put up on a rod. The expanse is wide though . 6 feet. Thanks for your help! You did a great job!

    1. Hi Monica, thanks so much! I am trying to put a post together this week to explain what we did and answer a few questions! I hope that will help =)… How fun to enjoy a vintage pop up!

    1. Cindy thank you very much! This little footstool is from Grandin Road =) – I appreciate you stopping by!

  14. I love your camper! So pretty!! I am thinking about getting a pop up camper but have always worried about the canvas tearing or leaks. Are they pretty easy to maintain and set up?

    1. Hi Melinda, thank you so much! Ours is actually pretty old and holding up strong! So I think as long as they are cared for properly they do well. We have not had any leaking or tearing issues as of yet either =).

  15. I am very interested in doing a similar project like this for an extra guest space, since we have an RV pad. Did you have to do any repairs to the tent trailer prior to the interior upgrade? Did you repaint the exterior as well? Are there any pictures? What was your total cost on this?

  16. Hi Annie! This is so great! I’d love to know what kind of pop-up you have or suggestions of good brands and sizes for used ones. We have become avid campers and we go so regularly now that “pop-up” has been increasingly on our minds! This definitely makes me want one!

  17. Just adore this space… we are new to camping… just bought a “fixer-upper” and dreaming of color schemes… yours is going to be imitated… hope you don’t mind. It seems so relaxing with the Black and white with tan… Thanks for the inspiration (and I am dreaming of how the look can change easily for autumn, winter, spring, *Christmas-time* etc… just add one more bold color and the whole thing is NEW!

  18. Hi! Simply brilliant! You’ve inspired me! Question: did you replace the canvas walls & screened windows? If not, how did you get those white instead of brown? Thanks!

  19. Beautiful!! Have you shared yet how you hung your curtains? It’s the one thing I have searched around for but no real solutions yet.

  20. Thanks for the info about Beddy’s. I just purchased a couple for our motorhome that has 2 sofas that become beds. This is soooo easy, we just keep them on and decorate with pillows during the day when the bedroom becomes the parlor. Got the nautical navy and added some nautical themed pillows. The bedding is so soft and cozy too.

  21. Hi! I think I died and went to Pop up heaven! Lol! May I ask what you used for your curtains? I redid my pop up and made black out curtains and totally threw away the original stuff and have no idea how to hang the curtains. May you please share you genius idea with me?

    1. Hi Debbie, look for the post on “How to set up a glamper…” and it is all detailed there with how-to’s, thanks!

  22. You have inspired me!! Went looking at campers today, came away sad & slightly depressed by the drabness & actually the badly designed storage. Your camper looks quite small, which one is it? Thanks for the inspiration

  23. I love your pop up and what you have done to make it home for you and your family!! I am such a newbie, just in the planning phase of reno for a camper and was curious what type of camp grill you use that you cook all your meals on?
    Thanks again & enjoy your new peaceful space!
    P.S. I have never been much of one for camping either, but somehow knowing my sheets and bedding, towels, etc. are clean and are mine means more to me than using a motel! 🙂

  24. I have a popup in serious need of a makeover. How did you do those curtain rods? I can’t figure out how to attach them. Thanks
    love your makeover. I have taken my camping several times needs a comfortable bed.

  25. How did you attach your curtains? It looks like you added a rod? Do you have to take them down when you collapse your trailer, and do they ever get pinched and dirty after they’ve been collapsed?

  26. Gorgeous! May I ask…was the interior already white? If not, how did you do it? My popup’s tent interior is the same tan as the exterior canvas and my ceiling is a type of wallpaper. Yours is truly lovely

  27. Hi. Thanks so much for the inspirational pictures. Are you using a special track to hang your curtains? I will be hanging an insulated privacy curtain between the cab and living area and dont want any light to show through. That way if Im parked at night on the street, no one will know I am inside. Thanks!

  28. Hi! We are renovating our camper and working on the curtains. Looking for the post where you explain how you attached the curtain rods. Thank you!
