Throw Pillow Covers to Add Beauty, Color and Style – For CHEAP!


I’m always on the lookout for functional ways to add color and personality to our RV and I’ve been looking at throw pillow covers lately – yes, just the covers! They’re inexpensive, come in a huge variety of fun patterns, colors and themes, and you can easily replace them if needed or desired. As I was browsing, I kept finding the perfect pillow…for someone else’s RV! I’m thinking of our many friends and acquaintances online and in real life, and imagining these pillows as gifts for LOTS of people…including future me!

Most of these pillow covers are less than $10 each – some as low as a buck or two and they can be stuffed with your own down or polyester pillow inserts, with loose fill or stuffing, or as some RVers have suggested, with extra sheets, towels, winter coats and other soft items for storage. I’m thinking of buying a half dozen or so that I can switch out with the seasons, the holidays, or my mood!

NOTE: Below are pillow covers – sold without inserts. Scroll to the bottom of the article to find the link to buy inserts. You will need to either buy 18″ x 18″ (45cm x 45cm) pillow inserts, use loose fiberfill or stuff the covers with your extra linens for attractive and useful stealth storage!
