Give Your RV Interior a Fresh New Look (Without Breaking the Bank!)

Image
Even though there are lots of fun things to do outside of your RV at our RV campground & marina on the Missouri River, you most likely still spend a lot of time inside the vehicle. Occasionally updating the look of the RV's interior can be a nice change. 

A complete overhaul can get pricy fast, but there are simple improvements that can be made that don't have to cost a lot. The small changes The Cottonwood Cove has for you today can make a big difference! 




Decorative Accents
You may shy away from putting decor on your walls because of the hazard of those things falling down during travel. There are ways to get around that. Removable and reusable sticker decals are an excellent way to do this. Today you can find them in many different styles, from inspirational sayings to pieces of art.

It's also possible to find lightweight wall decor that is less likely to fall victim …
