27 RV Office Conversion Ideas to Transform Your Space [Video + Pictures!]

More people than ever are hitting the road with their business and finding the need to create an RV office to work from.

While there are a variety of camper floorplans, there are some office musts (such as a desk and chair) that are compact and work almost anywhere.

Check out some of these office ideas and start planning your own “Office on Wheels!”


What are some ideas to put an office in an RV?

Tearing out a dinette is the most popular option, but there are SO many floorplans and work flows, so it’s likely that all these solutions will be possible. Many people do this to make their space more homey and accommodating to their lifestyle, so you will need to choose what works best for you!

However, here are some workspace ideas I’ll show you today

  • Tear out and replace the dinette
  • Tear out and replace the couch/recliners
  • Use the bedroom (the bed can be the seat)
  • Use the garage area of a toy hauler
  • Custom build a desk insert to create more office space
  • Utilize a fold down desk set up
  • Convert the bunkhouse to an office
  • Create a standing workspace (and mount the monitors up high!)
  • For RVs, use the front seat area
  • Lastly… just buy it already built in!

Tear out the dinette and replace it with an office setup

This is the most common solution – dinettes are usually pretty easy to remove and are the perfect size for a small office. If you are able to custom build anything, you’ll be able to utilize the space even better.

Bunkhouses converted to home RV offices

If you prefer some space, then you might love the idea of getting a camper that has a separate bunkhouse area. They also have a ton of space, a door, and a bit of natural light!

Built In Desk Options (No Modifying… it’s ready to use!)

Many RV manufacturers have noticed the ever increasing amount of campers working on the road, and it seems they’ve responded! I didn’t even know this was a thing until I started researching options myself, but this could save a lot of time, especially if you already know you plan to work from your RV.

What type of chairs and desks work well in an RV office?

Unless you have special medical requirements, or a ton of space, something that is comfy but compact is a great option.

  • Folding Ergonomic Chair – This one has a fold in back so that it’s easier to stow away when not in use. It’s also a back friendly design!
  • Stand Up Desk – It saves a ton of space and is healthier for you than sitting around all day (especially after already driving so much!)
  • 2 Tier Desk to Save Space – Go up, not out! I love that this desk is all metal and on wheels (so it’s easy to move). THere’s spots for a printer, keyboard, tower and monitor!
  • Folding Desk w/Shelf – If you don’t want to leave your workstation set up, a foldable desk is a great desk option for your RV
  • Flip Down Desk – If you hae some wall space and feel confident with mounting something in your camper, this is an AWESOME option – espeically for in the bedroom (since you can just use the foot of the bed as a seat)
