This holiday season presents special challenges for those who travel in a recreational vehicle, but the benefits and rewards of traveling during the holidays are numerous.
Make the most of your holiday by celebrating with family and friends—new and old. And remember how fortunate you are to be able to live the RV lifestyle.
To ensure your RV camping holiday is as fabulous as possible, take some time to brainstorm ways you can adapt your at-home rituals to the camping environment. Can you re-create your holiday dinners with dishes made over the campfire or in a Dutch oven? Maybe this will be the year when you hearken back to old-fashioned Christmas traditions including baking apples, roasting chestnuts, and decorating with paper chains rather than lights. You can sing carols over the glow of your lantern, take a hayride at Thanksgiving, or sleigh ride during Christmas or New Years.
To make your RV feel more like the holidays, you can decorate the exterior and interior of your RV. You can also make your RV more festive with garlands, wreaths, holiday lights, and smaller decorative touches. Opting for a 12-foot tree just isn’t going to work in an RV. However, you can put up a small, tabletop Christmas tree inside your RV and decorate simply—hang some of your favorite ornaments from home or collect RV Christmas ornaments on your travels.
If you’re heading to a southern campground for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year’s, you can enjoy the sunny weather while you check out the local display of lights or join in the campground’s potluck Thanksgiving dinner. Nearly all campgrounds that are open for the holidays host special holiday events and put on a special meal.
Many use their RV during the holiday season to escape the cold weather and snow. They flock to snowbird hotspots in Florida, Texas, Arizona, and California. Less-familiar snowbird roosts attract others to Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Nevada. These Sun Belt states are great places to soak up some rays and bask in holiday cheer.
