No matter where you are in the US, RV Halloween decorations are a fun activity to partake in! In many parts of the country, Halloween weekend is the prime camping weekend of the year.

For some, it’s the Grand Finale weekend of camping, and for those in the South, it’s the beginning of the season. But either way, enjoying the perfect temperatures in most camping areas is vital!

Many campgrounds are also known for having fun with RV Halloween decorations during this spooky time of year. Below are some ideas if you want to get in the Halloween spirit. And from what we can see, there is never “overkill” for camping Halloween decor.

RV Halloween Decoration Ideas

Of course, decide on a look or theme to maximize your storage and budget. Are you more cute smiley pumpkins and fuzzy black stuffed kittens? Are you just orange and black everything? Or are you more a bloody, scary, haunted house type? Ghosts and goblins?

Depending on if you go classy fall harvest or spend a bundle on animatronic skeletons and witches, there is an RV Halloween decorations look to fit your rig. To get the biggest bang for your buck, look for larger scale items that can be spaced around your RV or trailer and build upon the look with other additions.

Golf Cart Halloween Decoration Ideas

While RV Halloween decorations are a blast, don’t forget your golf cart! If you’re in a resort location, many times, the golf cart is the moving billboard for your theme, and since more people see it, go wild!

You can get solar or battery lights, decorate with orange and black banners and bunting, or even with cheesecloth ‘spiderwebs” or draped material to look like a mummy! 

Putting jack o’ lantern eyes and mouth on the front of your cart can be fun or scary, and you can find large-scale blow-up lawn decor that can be attached to the roof of your cart if you have room!
