Ashley Mann spent three years living full time in a 38-foot, 5th-wheel RV with her husband Josiah and their cat, Kitty. Her favorite thing about RV life is the challenge of finding the perfect way to organize a space, and she loves seeing all the creative and clever ways people come up with to customize their RVs.
Spending the autumn months in an RV doesn't mean you can't decorate for your favorite holidays! Check out these campers all decked out for Thanksgiving, Halloween, and all things fall!
Most of these photos were originally shared by members of the Facebook group RV Interior Ideas Holiday Edition who graciously allowed me to include them in this article. If you love decorating your RV for the holidays, you'll love this group!
Holiday RV Window Treatments
An RV window cornice (some call it a valance) offers a nice place to hang lights or set decorative items.
A lighted garland, ghost, candles, and a pumpkin tablecloth set a creepy mood in this fifth wheel!
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.
Seasonal RV decor you don't have to store
Setting a few small pumpkins, gourds, and squash around the RV is a good way to celebrate harvest season and the end of the year without having to sacrifice precious storage space.
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.
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.
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.
Farm style fall
Wooden crates provide additional surfaces to set decorative items, and can also be used for transporting decor!
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.
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!
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!
Cute camper decor for any space
Anyone can find space for a few fall leaves, which you can usually find inexpensively at the dollar store at the beginning of fall. Bonus points if you gather them on a camping adventure!

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.
