How to decorate your RV for the holidays

From wreaths to festive lights

Everyone is familiar with the standard holiday home decorations,
from twinkling lights to menorahs and Christmas trees. But what if
you’re living on the road, either in a van, an Airstream, or any
other type of RV? Can you still make the holidays feel festive in
less than 200 square feet?

We believe the answer is yes. You might need to opt for a
smaller tree and be thoughtful of securing certain decorations, but
it’s possible to embrace the holiday cheer even in a
home-on-the-go. We’ve turned to Instagram to round up our
favorite camper-oriented holiday inspiration, with an eye for
unique and innovative ideas. Here are the best ideas for decorating
your camper for the holidays.

Let’s start with the most basic: A picture-perfect wreath on
the front of your camper.

Or you can go more colorful with battery powered lights on the
wreath.

Even if you don’t have a ton of space, a tiny tree makes your
RV feel cozy.

Put it on top of something to make it feel a bit larger.

Hang a wreath on one of your windows for an easy dose of holiday

Lights or greenery around the windows can also provide a pop of
joy.

Larger Class A RVs actually have a lot of interior space to hang
things.

Small touches like festive dish towels make a big impact in a
compact space.

If you’re staying in one place, you could also put a small
tree outside.

Don’t be afraid of a little color at Christmas, like this
renovated Airstream.

These campers wouldn’t be very practical to drive, but they do
look amazing.
