Culling? I thought that was only something you did to animals.

Culling is the process of removing breeding animals from a group based on specific criteria. This is done either to reinforce certain desirable characteristics or to remove certain undesirable characteristics from the group. For livestock and wildlife alike, culling usually implies the killing of the removed animals

We have an 18 inch tree with lights built in. It sits on the dash. A string of colored lights hung between the mirrors completes our holiday decorations. We do know a couple who are fulltimers, but when they move between volunteer assignments they have: a 42 foot DP towing a Subaru on a dolly. He drives this rig, and is followed down the highway by his DW driving a dually truck with a truck camper in the bed. Every available inch of space is packed in all vehicles. They also have a permanent site at an RV park where they keep a class B and several storage sheds. One large basement compartment in the DP is entirely devoted to holiday decorations for all seasons and occasions. By comparison, the year we sold the house and went full time I had a stack of Goodwill receipts 2 inches thick.

Try a Christmas cactus. It's small and much easier to forget on the picnic table as you pull away for your next adventure.

Christmas isn't Christmas without a 9' tree. So the little ones need to go on dad's shoulders to put the star/angel on top

That's what stick and brick basements are for. Along with trains, toys, bars & wine cellars.

We have a handful of small Christmas ornaments, a 30" tall fiber optics tree and that is all. It all goes into the side of a storage tub.

Gave the rest of Decorations away just before we left Quartzsite last spring. Staying with family this year, His Wife passed in October.
He is going to Nevada for Xmas, we'll have Dinner here but no Decorations, just to much hassle anymore.
