Traveling in your RV can be a great way to spend the holiday season—from spring and summer holidays like Memorial Day and the Fourth of July to fall and winter holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. It allows you to go wherever you want, whether that’s to a national park or your family’s home across the country, and spend time with the people you care about. Spending the holidays in your RV doesn’t have to be stressful. In fact, it should be fun!

RV Tip #1: Go Where You Want

Ever wondered what the skiing is like in New Mexico? Have you ever wanted to spend the Fourth of July hiking in scenic deserts and beautiful mountains? Have family on the west coast that you haven’t seen in a while? The beauty of spending the holidays in your RV is that you can go wherever you want. So, take that trip you’ve been dying to go on with your family or favorite friends!

RV Tip #2: Start New Traditions

Home is where the heart is, and as long as you’re with your family or close friends, you’re all set to make memories that will last a lifetime. Spending the holidays in your RV is a great time to start some new traditions—like setting off fireworks or sparklers (where it’s safe and legal) for the Fourth or setting up a small Christmas tree in your living area. You can spend quality time together while making memories.

RV Tip #3: Pack for the Occasion

What you pack will largely depend on the holiday you’ll be celebrating in your RV. For instance, if you’re packing up to celebrate Memorial Day or another summer holiday, make sure you have room for coolers and a portable grill if you want to make burgers and hotdogs. But if you’re celebrating Thanksgiving or the winter holidays, you might want to make extra room for food, gifts, and decorations.

RV Tip #4: Decorate Your RV

Decorating is a great way to get into the holiday spirit! For Christmas, string lights are a must. And, if you have the space, setting up a small tree can be a fun project. For spring and summer holidays, streamers can add some festive flair, as well as flowers and other themed décor.

RV Tip #5: Giving Gifts? Share New Experiences Together!

If you’re spending gift-giving holidays in your RV, don’t forget to take packing space into consideration. If space is tight, consider gifting experiences to your loved ones. That could be spending the day together in front of a campfire with some hot cocoa or going on a winter excursion—think skiing, snowboarding, or even hiking! No matter what, your loved ones are likely to cherish the memories you make together as much as any material gift.

RV Tip #6: Make Friends With Your Campground Neighbors

Sharing the holiday spirit is always important! If you’re staying at a campground, get to know your neighbors! If one of your holiday traditions is making cookies or other baked goods, consider gifting them to your neighbors or friends. It’s a great way to share the holiday spirit and spread goodwill around the campground!

RV Tip #7: Book Your Campground Spot Early

Remember: There’s no right or wrong way to celebrate the holidays in your RV. Don’t be afraid of starting new traditions, and enjoy spending your time with your family and friends in fun new locations. To make sure you have a comfortable spot in your campground of choice, book early!
