Can you mount a wreath to the front grill area? Anything else like lights dangling outside might break the bulbs. Just hang some twinkling lights on the inside of the window and call it a day?

Perhaps you can decorate the ladder.... Aside from putting some of those static decals on your windows that look like stained glass I am at a loss. Quite frankly I am the opinion less is more. I would just wait until I get to my destination.

I can't decorate for Christmas ('cuz it's put away), but I do decorate for fall by laying a fall leaf garland wrapped in orange lights down where the dash meets the windshield. Since we run with the genny on, I can plug it into one of the electric outlets below the dash. You could so something similar w/greenery & Christmas lights.

I've seen wreaths strapped on car & truck grills for many years. I've also seen a round red nose on a grill & felt antlers attached to the driver's/passenger's windows on cars - maybe something like that for your coach?

Thanks all.

I am wanting to be looking like the Griswolds. I am hoping many will look their nose down at at me because of being "tacky" but screw them, I will be having fun with the kids.

Thanks for the tips

Maybe a local sign shop can make up some decals to put on the sides.

How about a cut out of Santa going up the back ladder with a bag of toys. That way you could secure it safely to the ladder. Also use reflection tape on Santa for night driving!

Just don't put any lit red/green/blue bulbs on the frontal area while driving. The folks with the flashing red/blue ones don't like that.

With lights and colour over windows, some states have restrictions on the tint colour check out tint state laws. For example where I live you are only allowed clear or amber lights visible from front. They do pull over those with the neon plates for example. Guess it would depend on how friendly the trooper or jurisdiction is on RVs. If you get Santa on a ladder don't put the "stuck" Santa legs in your Genny slide out. They used to sell large plastic holiday decor, maybe that would work on the side if not windy, if in the green belt maybe some spray on snow on windows nor paint and some cotton bating as now on the perimeter of the roof? Don't know if that would work. Oh and some brown dust especially in clumps behind the tires
