Celebrating the holidays while traveling across the country in an RV can prove to be an incredible experience; however, with limited space in an RV there are a few minor adjustments you may have to make in order to ensure you have a successful trip. To get you prepared for you first holiday on the road, we have come up with some tips on decorating your RV, gift giving and working with minimal space. We hope these little tidbits will help make your holiday season one of the best and lead to many more special RV adventures.
One of the biggest challenges you’ll face when spending the holidays in an RV is space. Although motorhomes have become more luxurious and roomy over the years, they still don’t have the size advantages of an average home. Due to these space restrictions, it’s best to think small when enjoying the holidays on an RV. Try setting up a small tabletop Christmas tree in place of a life-sized one to get into the holiday spirit. Stringing up lights and garland throughout the exterior and interior of your RV is also a great way to jump into the festivities. When it comes to purchasing gifts, it’s better to purchase small items in order to easily store them in the motorhome. If you have your heart set on a large item, have it shipped to the recipient, so you don’t take up additional space. It’s also a good idea to have the store gift wrap your presents, which allows you to keep your wrapping paper at home, creating more room within the cabin.
