RV Christmas Decorating Ideas | Tis’ The Season to bring in the Holiday Cheer even when you live in an RV.
We all know that most RV’s are limited in space, so you might be wondering how you can add a Christmas tree and decor to your RV.
If you’re like me, sometimes I need a little bit of inspiration from others to help me get creative.
And, that is ok!
So, I’ve put together 12 ways to add that Christmas cheer in a minimal and impactful way, plus many ideas from other RVer’s.
(P.S. Don’t forget to go follow their Instagrams after reading for more RV inspiration)
1. Hang some stockings
Stockings are a classic Christmas decoration that you can still use and hang in your RV. If you have an electric fireplace then you can hang them around that.
However, if you have a small child, like us, hanging stockings up higher might be a better option. You can hang them around the slide trim with some command strip hooks or they can also be hung on a window.
2. Use Garland (Pine, Tinsel, Beaded) and Ribbon
Pine garland, tinsel garland, or beaded garland are great ways to add RV Christmas Decorations.
Garland can be hung from anywhere in your RV! Many like to hang them from the slide trim to spruce up the space.
Ribbon is also a classical Christmas way of decorating.
Whether they are used as bows or wrapped like garland, whatever colors you choose will be perfect.
3. Hang Christmas lights indoor and outdoor
Christmas lights are a must when adding some holiday cheer to your RV. You can wrap the lights around the garland or hang them alone around a window seal.
Also, depending on where your RV is parked and the park’s rules, you can add lights around the outside of your RV.
I would check before to make sure you’re not breaking any rules.
4. Cozy up with RV Christmas pillows and blankets
This is a simple way to add holiday cheer to your RV. There are so many options out there for Christmas pillow covers.
In addition to the pillow covers, add a cozy Christmas themed blanket.
It is amazing how far pillows and blankets on your couches or bed go a long way in adding some holiday cheer.
5. Creative options for a Christmas Tree
Having a Christmas tree may seem almost impossible in an RV. However, there are many creative ways to have the tree in a small space.
One way is to have a tree is to add on to your tabletop. It doesn’t leave much space for gifts but it does add some holiday cheer.
The second option is to get a short and skinny tree. These work great in an RV without taking up too much space.
The third option is to clear out space by removing the table or a chair and adding a tree. Many RVers move and replace their furniture all the time!
The last option is to create one out of pine and tinsel garland on a wall. This is an inexpensive and space-saving option.
6. RV Christmas Ornaments
Camper ornaments are becoming quite the collector’s items.
They can be used for little decorations on the counters, tables, or hung on a tree.
7. Holiday Kitchen towels
This is a super simple way to add a touch of Christmas to your RV. I enjoy hanging a cute Christmas towel from the oven door.
but, if you don’t have an oven door you can always hang one from a kitchen door handle.
8. Add some RV Christmas Decorations to the Walls with command strips
One thing I love about command strips is they allow you to easily change out the wall decor.
So, adding a sign that says “Joy” or “Merry Christmas” to your RV is the perfect RV Christmas decoration.
9. Add a Christmas wreath or two to your door or windows
Nowadays wreaths are used for almost every season or holiday, but it all started with Christmas.
Wreaths can be used indoor and outdoor on the windows and doors.
There are so many different varieties and sizes to choose from to match your ideal Christmas decor style.
10. Fill the Space with Your Favorite Christmas Scent
I’m all about the smell of the space as well as the visual decor.
Items like Candles, plugins, or oil diffusers with peppermint, pine, or sweet cookie smells will be a decadent addition to the Christmas ambiance.
11. Add some outdoor Christmas decor
Just as fun and cheerful as decorations are indoors, it is also fun to decorate outside your RV.
This can be done with a wreath, lights, and maybe even a cute Christmas inflatable.
12. Put on a Christmas movie or Music
Last, but not least this one is more about the ambiance than actual decorating.
Turning on a movie like “Elf” or Holiday music will make it feel like Christmas in your camper!
RV Christmas Decorating can be fun and bring in the Holiday Cheer for the “Most Wonderful Time of the year”.
I hope these ideas and inspiration from other RVers have inspired you to decorate your RV for the Holidays.

Best Gifts for Full-Time RVers
Digital Wireless Backup Camera for RV/Truck (2)
Backing up an RV is a learned skill that many can struggle with. It’s not an easy thing to do, especially if your RV is a long travel trailer like ours.
These cameras will allow the driver and passenger to see where they are and what is behind them. This can prevent the RV from hitting trees or worse.

- Night Vision
- Recording option

RV weBoost Drive X Cell Phone Signal Booster
For full-time RVer’s, having a strong cell signal is vital because they most likely earn an income online.
The Internet options for RV’ers are scarce and many use a “HotSpot” option like the Verizon Jetpack or At&T NightHawk.
This is a great gift idea for any full-timer RVer even if they are stationary in an RV park.
It will boost their capability for streaming and downloads.
TireMinder Smart Pressure Monitor
For those who travel a lot and have multiple axles on there, having a tire pressure monitor is a huge plus.
The worse thing to see is a double or triple axle RV that has a flat, and the driver has no idea. This could ruin an axel or wheel and cost more money.
You can get a 4, 6, or 10 transmitter system that connects right to your phone. If a tire begins to lose pressure, it will notify the phone and allow the driver to pull over and check before any damage is done.
The Best Membership Passes for Campers
If your RV has the capabilities to self-sustain for an evening, then Harvest Host is the perfect and best membership pass.
Harvest Host partners with wineries, breweries, farms, and museums around the States that offer a place to stay overnight. These wineries do not have your Amp/Water/Sewage hookups, therefore, you will have to “boondock”.
However, The reviews for this program and the experience you or your RV owner friend will have is extraordinary.
There are over 1443 places with unlimited night stays for 1 single yearly cost.
National Park: America the Beautiful Annual Pass
Do you have friends or family that own an RV and love to visit America’s National Parks?
Then this is a great gift option for them. It is a yearly membership with 1 cost that will save them money on park fees.
If they are military, the annual pass is FREE! There are many options for kids and seniors as well!
Thousand Trails Camping Pass
The Thousand Trails has 190 plus RV Campgrounds and Resorts in 5 zones!
They are yearly passes that will let you explore a certain region at no additional nightly cost. If you want to add another zone, you can at one single low price.
This camping membership pass is perfect for those who enjoy long trips or are full-time RVer’s.

Useful RV Kitchen Gift Ideas
NuWave 14QT 12 in 1 Brio Air Fryer
Many RVer’s love and rave about their Instapots. However, I’m all about the 12 in 1 Nuwave oven!
It’s perfect for RVer’s because it will allow them to cook any meal they want without worrying about something burning or cooking unevenly in the tiny RV oven.
The NuWave Brio Air Fryer allows you to Air Fry, Bake, Rotisserie (pop popcorn), Roast, Grill, and Dehydrate your food.
Single Server Mini Keurig
I’m a coffee lover and I enjoy a cup every single morning to start my day.
Since living full-time in an RV, I know how limited and valuable kitchen counter space can be.
Therefore, having a thin single-serve coffee maker is a perfect gift idea for RV Owners.
Farbware Countertop Dishwashing Machine
Every full-time RV’er will tell you that doing the dishes by hand becomes an annoying task.
Therefore, having a dishwasher is an RV’ers dream! It makes the monotonous task of doing dishes easier.
Especially if they have babies or kids with bottles.
Happy Camper Mugs & Drinkware
