Recently, my family inherited an RV that had been owned by a couple (rather than a family). The previous owners removed the table and chairs, which made it difficult for our family to have meals and play games. So, to solve this problem, my husband and I came up with an easy and inexpensive IKEA hack for our RV.

We removed the large chair and small table that they had, and we replaced it with a desk, two chairs, and a bench (which all came from IKEA). Here is what we purchased:

For the table, we used the Linnmon desk.

We also purchased two Stefan chairs.

And to finish off our set, we purchased a Hemnes bench.

Now we have a perfect place for our boys and their cousins to eat breakfast, and a fun place to play cards (as a family) on rainy days.

Does your family have an RV? Have you made any modifcations to it? I'd love to hear about your RV upgrades and IKEA hacks!

  1. It’s truly a great and helpful piece of information. I’m happy that you simply shared this useful info with us. Please keep us informed like this. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Does the bench slide under the table?

    1. No, but you could get a smaller bench that would. I wanted one that would fit my three boys.

  3. Did you attach the table to the wall? Do you just lay the chairs down when traveling?


Don't miss any of the fun....
