Elegantly Shaped

The exterior of the Retro RV provides an instant kick of nostalgia as the classic or teardrop RV shape. The smooth curves remind you of simpler days. The rounded exterior extends a welcoming feeling with an invitation to time hop during your travels.

Designed for Function (and Fun)

Retro campers are lightweight and easy to haul. There’s no other way to put it. The Retro RV is vibrant and fun on the inside and out, which is one reason why it’s been featured in music videos and TV commercials viewed from across the globe. Choose from 8 power-punching colors or 3 neutral tones for your retro RV exterior.

Step Inside & Back in Time

The interior of the Retro stays true to the name with the classic, black and white checkerboard flooring reminiscent of the 1950’s diner style. Dinette cushions pop in aqua, red, or seafoam green, but are also available in grey for a more neutral look. Bright birch wood covers the interior walls and cabinetry (N/A in 511 models), securing the vintage style.
