RV Decorating Ideas | 9 Ways to Decorate for the Fall Camping Season

RV Decorating Ideas |  I love the fall season so much with the cooler weather and leaves changing colors. 

I also love decorating for the fall.

So, whether you’re living in your RV full-time (like us) or taking a few fall camping trips, decorating your RV for the season is a lot of fun.

Autumn brings a sense of home and warmth to many, so making sure you expand that feel to your RV is always a nice touch.

So, here are some great fall decorating tips, and some inspiration from other RVer’s.

RV Decorating Fall

1. Change out the Pillow Covers

This is a super simple way to change out the décor for the fall season. Plus, there are so many different options and it’s a super budget-friendly way to bring the feel of Autumn inside while camping or if you live full-time in an RV.

2. Add a Warm Fall Colored Blanket

The weather begins to cool down during this time of year, and having a cozy fall blanket adds extra warmth to your space.

You can choose a fall-inspired option with thankful sayings and pumpkin decor, or go with a fall plaid or warm solid.

Whichever you decide, it will be a perfect touch of fall in your RV.

A wreath is a perfect way to add seasonal decor to any space indoor or outdoor.

4. Decorate the RV Outside with a Fall Mat, and more

The outside of your RV is a place where a lot of time is spent, so making sure your spruce the area up is a must for the fall. 

It can be simple and budget-friendly too. All you need is a wreath, a fall-inspired doormat, some pumpkins, and maybe a sign.

However, you decide it will be perfect!

7. Use Pumpkins

Awe.. pumpkins are a classic and perfect way to decorate for the fall. You can choose real pumpkins or faux ones. 

There are so many options with pumpkins and placement so you have fun with them. 

I personally like to use real ones outdoor for decor, and the faux pumpkins indoor. 

8. Change out some Wall Decor

Adding a simple sign that says “Hello Fall” or “Give Thanks” to a wall or above a door is a great way to add RV fall decor. 

Using command strips and command hooks is the best way to easily change things up without damage to the RV walls.

9. Don’t Forget the Fall Candles

When it comes to decorating for the fall, I love adding a delicious smelling fall scented candle.

Not only are they perfect for decorating, but they also add to the space with smell and ambiance.

Fall Camping Tips to Keep You Warm and Cozy in a Tent

Fall Camping Tips to Keep You Warm and Cozy in a Tent

Camping doesn’t only have to be a summer fun experience.

There are many benefits to fall camping when the air cools down and the leaves begin to change to red, orange, and yellow.

It truly becomes a beautiful sight to see!

It also allows for some beautiful photos for memories.

However, when you choose to camp in the fall, the weather is the most important thing to consider.

Fall camping can bring some chilly nights.

Fall Camping Tips

 There can also be unexpected rainfall as the season’s change and the air pressure or cold fronts come through.

So how do you prepare for a fall camping adventure to ensure you stay cozy and have a great time?

Let’s get started with what you should bring to wear because your clothes can make or break your trip.

What to wear for Fall Camping

The first thing you want to do is check the weather to see if there is rain in the forecast. You will also want to check the temperatures in the day and night.

During the fall months, the temperature at night can drop significantly so you will want to be prepared with these items.

This is a great list of items to get you started so you stay warm and dry during the fall camping trip.


What to bring to stay warm while sleeping

The nights will almost always be colder than the days, so having these items to stay warm while you sleep is a necessity.

  • 0-degree sleeping bag
  • Thermals
  • Wool blankets
  • Hand and feet warmers

Tips for keeping your Tent warm at night

There are different ways to keep your tent warm at night.

First, you can use a portable propane heater inside your tent.

This heater has tip-over protection, and I highly recommend always placing it in an area with plenty of ventilation and on a solid structure.

You could also purchase a tent with a wood stove that has the proper ventilation.

Fall Camping

Another great tip is to pack some rugs and extra blankets to place on the floor of your tent. This will help insulate the tent from the cold ground. 

If you choose the portable heater or wood stove tent with ventilation, please use it with care and caution. 

Additional Tips Before You Head To Your Campsite

–> Check your campsite for electricity and water

Every campsite is different. If you choose to rent out a spot that could also be rented out for an RV, there could be the option to have electricity and running water. This is a camping game changer.

Find out ahead of time by asking the park attendant when you book your campsite. 

If your campsite has electricity, then bringing an electric heater and/or an electric blanket can be great options for staying warm.

Another option if you have electricity and water at your campsite is to bring an electric water kettle or coffee maker. This speeds up the ability to have a nice hot cup of joe!

–> Check the park for rules on gathering firewood

Some state parks prohibit gathering firewood and require you to bring your own.

Check with the park attendant when you book your site.

–> Check for a fire pit and see if there is a burn ban

Some areas may have fire bans depending on how dry the summer was. If there is a fire ban, check out other options to have a campfire.

You may need to ask if you can bring your own personal fire pit.

So, how cold is too cold for Fall Camping?

Speaking of staying warm in your tent, let’s discuss the temperature that’s doable for fall camping.

Sometimes winter can come early for many parts of the United States and getting caught with freezing temperatures in your tent is not what you want. That is why checking the weather ahead of time is so important.

But, how cold is too cold?

I personally think anything below 45 degrees at night is too cold. Although your sub-zero sleeping bag should keep you nice and cozy, I don’t recommend camping if it’s supposed to get below 45 degrees.

That’s my opinion though.

Only you know what gear you have and what temperatures you will be comfortable with.

If you don’t know, then I would test out your gear one cold night in your back yard to see what you can handle. This way you have the option to go inside the house for warmth.

Food and Drink Ideas for Fall Camping

Nothing is better than sitting by a campfire and enjoying a delicious cup of coffee or hot cocoa. I personally also love chili and cornbread during this time of year.

So, here are some comfort food and drink ideas to keep you warm and satisfied while fall camping.
