How would you guys go about retrofitting a older old RV into a smart RV?

I suppose you could go all out and adapt the available residential remote control items like outlets, lighting, etc. to RV use. Personally, beyond perhaps getting a smarter TV, I can't see myself adding more failure points to an already complex vehicle.
