Decorating for Holidays

We have just moved into our motorhome full time. We aren't changing spots much and decided to break out some Christmas decorations. What do you guys do for the Holidays? Please include if you are staying in one spot or travelling around and have to secure things in between locations.

Good question. We also are making the transition from house to full time RV. We just bought a half decent looking 4 foot fake tree from the Home Despot. We will be putting it on the dashboard with some lights. We will put some ornaments and some packages under it along with a note that says "All boxes are empty,decoration only". We might hang a decoration or two inside too. We are in the same place for the month of December, which helps.

Maybe some outdoor lights, but not a lot of decorating. Hard to carry stuff around with is.

When we FTd SHE would fully decorate the Inside of 5th wheel with lights around the windows/curtains, small decorations on table and our 'Charlie Brown' tree.
Then pack it all up for travel....we rarely stayed put more then 2 weeks (typically moved weekly)

I decided to hang awning lights and spent 2 hours stringing them up/across/back down awning. They really looked good.
2 days later a BIG Storm blew in and I was trying to remove them until I just started cutting the wires and ripping the lights down so I could get the awning retracted before it was damaged.

LAST TIME I put up ANY Lights.
SHE still decorated the Inside.

That's all we had during our full-timing. It was plenty to give a little Christmas Cheer.

Decorating for Holidays

Christmas 2020 will be our ninth while fulltiming. Weíve been fortunate to have been settled into one gig or other for every one so far. It was probably our second Christmas or so we started to decorate a bit, and things got added along the way. All credit for tastefulness to DW!Click image for larger version

Keeping it simple

The biggest thing that we like to do is keep pictures of our kids on the tree, but of course, now that we are full time, there's no room for a traditional tree.

So what we did was get a vinal wall sticker tree, and place that on the fridge. Then we used garland and hung our ornaments on that. It actually feels really Christmas-y.

My suggestion is to figure out what your traditions call for and then try to keep them. Is the tree important or the lights etc etc.

For our 4' tree and decorations, I found a spot under our fifth wheel to carry them. I unzip the under fabric and stuff them up inside. They have been riding there good for the last 2 years now and are out of the way when not needed.
