25 Mobile Office Set-Ups to Inspire You to RV Full-Time


Ready to upgrade your work space? These 25 mobile office set-ups will inspire you to hit the road in an RV. http://heathandalyssa.com/mobile-office

I’m a sucker for a good mobile office set-up.

Mostly because 99% of RVs don’t come equipped with a desk or any space that even resembles a good work station. (Shout out to all the entrepreneurs out there taking conference calls at the RV park picnic table!)

If you want a mobile office in your RV, you have to get creative, learn how to do a little renovation, and maximize your square footage.

It’s a challenge that all RV entrepreneurs love to tackle, so we asked our Facebook group to share their mobile office set-ups to inspire you. Below are our top 25 picks, ranging from stand-up desks to custom build-outs to folding tables and couches. There’s no one way to set up a desk in an RV and these pioneers prove it!

I’m always at the dinette, tied down because of my iMac. And usually surrounded by food, notebooks, candles, flowers, and a hairbrush cause I’mmamess.

  • Very cool!

    • Aren’t they amazing?? I’ve got serious office envy over here.

  • Dan Gaskell

    Those are some great setups. Almost makes you want to work – almost.

  • Emily

    Great post. I love “looking” inside peoples campers. We’re finally taking our camper out next week. I’ll post a picture of our office setup while we’re out.

    • Haha yes sometimes the best part of RV parks is getting to peek inside everyone else’s rigs!

  • Gil Gonzalez

    Keepin’ it real… Awesome Post!

  • Bridgette

    These pics are great!! I really love a whole bunch of them. I adore about everything from Mountain Modern Life. Such fantastic style. You are a cute mess at least. Thanks for a great posts.

    • Hahaha, well thank you 😂 but yes Mountain Modern Life looks gorgeous!

  • Ran Lachman

    Very nice pictures!
    The beauty of RVing is that it takes you into the nature. So just having a laptop and a folding chair is usually all what needed for a true mobile office.

    The complicated set ups are usually counter productive, as one mentioned below ” it almost makes you want to work” and inside.

    Keep it simple – that’s why we are RVing…

    • Very true! But I think most of us want to and enjoy working in our RVs because it allows us to go more places and get out into nature more often!

  • Angie Mattson

    Awesome pics! We pulled out the recliner and installed a big deal made out of a scrap piece of butcher block. It’s right in front of a big window. Awesome-sauce!

  • Bryan Prince

    Thanks for the inspiration! I was afraid I’d have to give up my beloved DXRacer chair when we get our 5th wheel, but I see others on wheels. I’d be curious how they secure their rolling chairs…

    • Bungee cords! Or tossing them on the bed 🙂

      • Bryan Prince

        Thanks for the tip!

  • Love the inspiration and it’s fun to see some of my favorite mobile office spaces in this post, including ours, woo-hoo! The only downside to our living room office is that we have to spend two minutes putting it away or setting it up, which means on my super lazy days I just work at the pop-up desk in the bedroom, haha.

    • Haha it’s funny how big of a difference those two minutes make! I have definitely spent many mornings with my laptop in bed because that’s just SO much easier!

  • Jay

    I’m surprised there weren’t any bunk removals. That’s the direction we are leaning. But have till spring to figure it out.

    • Well there’s a couple school buses in there, so there were a few that started out with empty buses and built out their whole layout!

  • Shane Meyer

    Great office ideas, thanks for compiling and sharing!
