They may have fame and fortune, but these well-known actors, musicians, and celebrities love the freedom of a home-on-wheels; Celebrities Own An RV
You may watch them on TV, on the big screen, listen to their albums or read about them in the tabloids, but many celebrities love the freedom of owning a home-on-wheels just like the rest of us, and what’s not to love about hitting the road in a recreational vehicle?
Once again, RV’ing seems to be the latest craze sweeping the celebrity world — just like in the 70s and 80s. Actors like Will Smith and Ashton Kutcher often use these opulent abodes while on set, but famous people and their studios aren’t the target demographic for RV businesses. Some of these famous faces are first-time buyers who own moderately priced RVs and classic trailers, but other big-name stars shelled out millions of dollars customizing their luxury coaches.
Here’s a look at eight well-known actors, musicians, TV personalities and tabloid stars who you may have never guessed would have their own a motorhome.
1. Will Smith
Living large: Hollywood actor Will Smith has set up camp in New York by planting a 53ft double decker RV

Inside the fancy rig is a fully equipped kitchen decked out in Italian cherrywood cabinets with church-style arched windows. There’s a space for Smith’s makeup and wardrobe needs. The satellite hookup on the roof sends Smith’s movies to a 50-inch plasma TV, which also features a 100-inch roll-down movie projector screen.
Unfortunately, the neighbors weren’t so impressed, and Smith was forced to relocate the giant motorhome to a nearby parking lot.
2. Gwen Stefani
Gwen’s style! “No Doubt” the right choice: Plush white modern couches with marble flooring and countertops
She is the lead vocalist of No Doubt, singer-songwriter, and clothing designer Gwen Stefani has a decked-out RV interior that showcases her design skills.
