Part of the fun of RVing is decorating your RV for the holidays and one of the better holidays for decorating is Halloween. Depending on where you are, you can make your site really spooky. Some campsite have lights everywhere, which means you can’t have dark corners to hide in or to place scary Halloween decorations that people see at the last minute. But some sites are pretty dark – and the darker, the scarier.
If you think decorating your RV for Halloween sounds like fun but you don’t have an RV, then stop by Woody’s RV World today to walk through several of the floor plans. Choose luxury models, toy hauler models, bunkhouse models and more.
A dark site means you can use lighting to your advantage. Use a string of orange lights around the awning. Add battery-operated dim lighting around the site to highlight certain decorations and to create a spooky atmosphere.
Use slabs of Styrofoam to create headstones and fences. Get a witch’s broom for the outside of your RV door. Add carved pumpkins with candles, though be careful there are no loose leaves that could blow into the pumpkins and start a fire. Find a hay bale to place at the entrance of your site so you can prop up pumpkins and scarecrows.
On the inside, place window clings on the windows. Add fake spider webs and spiders to set the atmosphere inside.
Candy and Dress Up
If the RV park you are staying at has a Halloween event or offers participation in trick or treating, be sure to have plenty of candy to hand out. To make it even better, dress up for the event – even if you are just handing out candy. Kids love to be scared so the scarier the costume, the better. They’ll remember this trip because of your well-decorated RV and your participation in this fun holiday.
If you are camping on private land in the woods, you can do the same thing and it will be even scarier for your own kids. Don’t think that just because others are not around that your kids wouldn’t appreciate Halloween decorations. Instead of trick or treating, hide candy around the RV – inside and out – and let them find it to fill their bags.
