With Christmas just a few days away, you might be looking forward to spending some time in your RV over the holidays. Maybe you are taking a trip to see family in another state, or maybe you are simply going on vacation with your closest loved ones? Either way, you may decide that you want to take a little bit of the holiday spirit with you on the road. By decorating your RV with just a few basics, you can look forward to enjoying a festive holiday season even if you are away from home.
Lights Are a Start
Of course, lighting up your RV is an obvious way to get into the holiday mood. Just a couple strings or lights inside or outside of the RV (or both) can provide a great atmosphere for a party or just for spending some relaxing time with your family. If you have already set up camp and you won’t be moving the RV until after the holidays are over, you may wish to incorporate outdoor gear in to your display to add an element of creativity. Since lights are inexpensive and easy to put up, this is a basic step you can take when holiday decorating is the goal.
As you would probably imagine, putting an entire tree inside of your RV isn’t a very practical option. Even if you could find a place to put the tree once it was inside, the act of getting it through a small RV door would be a big enough challenge on its own. However, you could still choose to purchase a small tabletop tree (either real or fake) to add to your décor. Pick out a spot in your RV where the tree can be enjoyed without getting in the way of your day to day activities. Once the tree is up, you can use it to display some of your favorite holiday items.
Don’t Do Damage
While you are trying to decorate your RV for the holiday season, make sure you don’t do any damage that you won’t be able to reverse when the decorations come down. The walls in your RV are not the same as the walls in your home, meaning you can’t just take a hammer and nail to them anytime you want to hang something up. Look for RV-friendly options for displaying decorations so that you don’t wind up with a major headache (and expense) after the holiday season has come and gone.
The level of time and effort you want to put into your displays is obviously up to you. Even just a couple pieces can help put you into the holiday spirit, and you won’t have to break the bank in the process. Whether you invest a large amount of time and money into your display or you opt for a more subdued approach, do everything safely and enjoy the season. Happy holidays!
