Why Not??

You can use almost anything in fashion/decor if you balance all the elements.
So, if you love camo - go camo!
A couple of ideas:
Make the Camo elements accents rather than the main theme.
Use a neutral base for the cushions like Khaki or Olive.
Then use a bright accent color like orange in very small doses.
Pull in some leather pillows or cabinet pulls.
Use something metallic - brass or bronze to give it a little reflective quality inside too.
This could be very sophisticated and cool.
Get some fashion mags and look at how the fashion pros do it.
OK, I know this seems a bit of an atypical post but hey - It's something I know a little about. And.......what is more fashionable than an Airstream?

You said it! I like your idea. I wanted red in my AS so we did small splashes of red throughout and when I'm tired of it it's easy to change. Bass Pro shops has a ton of camo decor!

Good ideas - I was thinking of the side panel in the living area, 2 in the back bedroom, and panel on dinette wall. Couch and dinette were upholstered by the PO in a nice color/ pattern and we will leave that. I will post a few pics tomorrow of the few decorator items used so far (Mrs at work). Too dark out now for the job.

promised pics

These few pics show a little of what we have done so far. Nothing startling but done with some home decor items we had about. Camoflage accents might go nicely. We placed amber tree lights behind and within the 'pine boughs' so when evening comes both ends of the AS are light with soft amber light and illuminates the rest of the decorations. PO put a nice wood shelf with pegs above the windo and it works great.
