How many creative ways can you think of to enjoy a camping themed Christmas? You might think it is a crazy idea to have an RV Christmas tree in your tiny home on wheels because floor space always seems to be evaporating … but it is possible … and probably easier than you think!
How To Have A Camping Christmas Tree In Your RV: 6 Styles To Consider
When you want to enjoy the holiday season in your camper, whether you are living in an RV full time or just weekend RVers, you can appreciate a tree as part of your Christmas décor. These 6 styles of indoor camper Christmas trees offer ingenious options that fit all different RV sizes.
Tabletop Christmas Trees
The most common option is using a small Christmas tree for RV tables and counters. Holiday tabletop trees are typically about two feet tall and they are artificial trees. These are really good options for small campers and caravans that can afford to surrender a little bit of counter space for the season.
Collapsible Christmas Trees
If you want a full sized Christmas tree for RV camping over the holiday, collapsible designs are brilliant! They come in options as small as 2 feet high and go all the way up through a 7 foot tall size tree.
Many are pre lit and pre decorated … and you just pull them up so the set-up only takes a few minutes. The amazing thing is how quickly and easily they collapse for storage in small boxes!

Christmas Pencil Trees
At first look, RVs with smaller space limitations may seem as if a floor-standing tree isn’t an option. If you like the idea of full sized pop up trees but don’t have enough floor space, choose a narrow profile collapsible pencil Christmas tree. The typical smaller tree size stands 4 feet tall and are usually just over a foot wide at the base. They are the perfect solution for many full time RVers … they come in tons of color options too.
Wall-Hugging Christmas Half Trees
Another clever solution to have a tall Christmas tree for campers that have limited space is to use a half tree … yes, you heard that right! It is like the tree is sliced down the center so you only get the front side. And really … who decorates the side of the tree that is backed-up to a wall anyway? RV owners who use this style usually have to move their dining table and chairs to accommodate this camper Christmas decor.
If you use a non-decorated tree, make sure you get a few cute camping Christmas ornaments too!
Wall Trees For Christmas
If you can’t afford to lose any floor space but you have wall areas where you can hang decorations, you can use wall stickers to add a tree that requires absolutely no space!
Some 3-D wall trees add unique decorations without requiring much space at all. A wooden ladder tree provides a natural, rustic feel and a metal art tree has a more stylish touch.
Christmas Window Trees
Did you ever think about RV decorated windows to display trees? There are tons of window sticker designs, some are in the shape of Christmas trees while others can be formed into that shape using other holiday symbols … like snowflakes. Kids love these things and so do adults (especially the easy of cleaning up after the season has ended.)
Live Outdoor Trees Decorated For Christmas
Is it possible to be a multi-tree family when you are staying in an RV for Christmas? Sure it is! If you take you holiday spirit outside your trailer, amazing things can happen.
After you finish decorating inside, why not throw a couple of strands of your camping string lights on the live evergreen trees at your campsite too? It is an easy way to have an absolutely FREE Christmas decoration that you don’t have to pack up and store after the holiday is over!
Decorations Beyond Trees
Don’t forget to consider other options for your RV Christmas decorations like…
- Christmas lights you can hang inside or outdoors (those that run on a battery pack and timer are always a popular choice).
- Pillow covers and decorative throws are great for the couch and ottoman in your living room.
- Traditional holiday décor like wreaths, and tree trimmings like garland, tinsel and ornaments can be hung anywhere inside travel trailers and motorhomes (think door knobs, cabinet pulls, from the ceiling etc.)
