After twelve years of attending the Burning Man festival, a temporary community of 50,000 people and thousands of rental Recreational Vehicles, we've discovered a few ways to turn your rented motel room into a space for personal expression. Without damaging your rental! Nothing spells "Sad" like a standard issue RV home when settling in for the night, or day. It doesn't take long to create, and your plentiful guests will greatly appreciate a comfortable, colorful oasis in the desert.
Ok, I lied... "s a d" spells "Sad". So don't be sad: take a few easy hours to make your home a home!
Step 1: Starting from Scratch
Front and Back views inside a typical rental RV.
Note how clean they start out (like a sterile motel room).
Rolls of old carpets, padding, and bathroom rugs
Various fabrics (both strong and delicate for placing in different locations)
Safety pins (best to have 100's of pins in various sizes)
Extendable shower rods
Metallic bubble plastic wrap (aka Reflectix)
Lighting toys (LED strings are better and safer than incandescent christmas lights)
