Spending the autumn months in an RV is a great reason to deck out your camper with some fall RV decor. Thanksgiving, Halloween, and all things fall can make your RV feel that much cozier!

1. Holiday RV Window Treatments

An RV window cornice (some call it a valance) offers a nice place to hang lights or set decorative items.

3. Outdoor RV Decor

If you are lucky enough to be spending the holidays in a warm climate, you can decorate the outside of your RV for fall!  A garden flag and suction cup rod are both RV decorating accessories that can be easily changed for different seasons.

5. Reversible Holiday Decor

This clever decor can be turned around and used for more than one holiday – another good way to save on storage space!  RV owner Crystal Dearstine painted these herself, but I’ve seen similar ones for sale on Etsy.

6. Chalk Art Holiday Decor

A chalkboard wall can be decorated and redecorated for any season!  If you don’t like the idea of using chalkboard paint in your RV, you could make a chalkboard wall using removable vinyl chalkboard wallpaper instead.

7. Inspired by Nature

Leaf garlands and a narrow holiday tree (which in a few months will become a Christmas tree) lend a festive air to this fifth wheel owned by Christina LaPlaca, blogger at RVLifeMilitaryStyle.com.

8. Farm-Style fall

Wooden crates provide additional surfaces to set decorative items, and can also be used for transporting and storing decor!

9. Deck the Slides

RV slide outs are an excellent place to display fall holiday lights or a fall garland. Even if your slide trim doesn’t allow you to set things on top, you can hang decor along them, or you could try adding a shelf just above the slide by mounting a piece of 1″ x 8′ lumber with shelf brackets.

10. Both Sides of the Door

Many people hang a holiday wreath on the front door, but don’t forget that both sides of a door can be decorated! A lovely lighted fall garland like this one will cheer you up as you head out for the day!

11. Thankful for Airstreams

Throw pillows are an easy way to decorate for holidays since the covers can be changed for each season and the extras can be stored inside the cover behind the pillow!

  1. We’re still weekend warriors so I’ve never even CONSIDERED what to do with the decor when done with it if full-timing it! I LOVE the idea of painting double-sided planks, not to mention that they store flat and could be repeated for any season/HOLIDAY! You could also do two-sided pillows and store them in vacuum bags as a full-timer! Thanks for this post…great ideas. I’m TOTALLY pinning this one for the future.
