Do you decorate your home or RV for Halloween?

It’s almost Halloween! And this year, even more than in past years, it seems like everyone is decorating their homes and/or RVs for Halloween. We’ve seen more decorations than ever and we think it’s absolutely spooktacular!

We didn’t do it this year (but we should have), but a couple of years ago we asked you to submit photos of your RV if you decorated it for Halloween. These were the results. Some of you went all out!

If you’re looking for easy ways to decorate your RV for Halloween, check out this video that shares easy decor, recipes and more.

Happy haunting!

I said yes, but I only put out very little…

First off, I am not a scrooge. If you want to decorate, decorate. To each his own. According to the National Retail Federation’s annual 2023 survey, spending for Halloween decorations were expected to reach $12.2 billion dollars. How would this amount lift the lives of poor families, the homeless or for that matter reducing our nation’s debt?

No, but I keep a porch light and inside lights on for the younger kids who trick or treat.

DW has to decorate for every occasion, me I’d just turn off the lights, park the car in the back yard and go to bed, bah humbug! Lol

Yes we decorate…..we normally buy two small pumpkins & place them out on our porch or outside our motorhome if we are in a campground!

My ex and I used to but I haven’t for a few years.

We decorate our house to whatever extent DW directs. We have lived well off the road in a rural area since 2018, so we tend to not decorate at all any longer. From 1994-2017 we lived in a subdivision and always decorated the foyer and outside in eager anticipation of trick-or-treaters. DW always tried to leave work early enough to see all our visitors and how they were disguised. We sometimes have been in a campground on Halloween. If so, then we decorated our site and equipped ourselves with a surfeit of candy, ostensibly for distribution and usually also to expand our own waistlines. 😉

Just some lights outside for the kids. I think decorating for Halloween has simply gotten carried away!!

You’ve got that right, Bob!

Same here. Just a couple lit plastic pumpkins so kids, which aren’t many in our rural location, know they can stop. They are put out and put away in one day. We get three or four kids that stop, so not much activity out here in “the sticks!”

Yep. Way too many decorations and too much expense. Our nearby Home Depot had 7′ or 8′ (more?) articulating goblins for sale a month ago. The prices ranged from $40-$400?!

Every year the state park, where I’m a host, has a Halloween event. The biggest part of the event is on my camp loop. I didn’t want to be the only one on the loop not decorated. That was the first year I’ve ever decorated for Halloween. I made some ghost and hung them from the trees. Minimal but decorated.

Absolutely not! Or our “stix ‘n bricks” either. When did Halloween become more of an adult “thing” than just a night for kids’ trick or treating?

Where are you supposed to store the decorations the rest of the year in an RV? With the Christmas and Easter decorations?!?

This year will hopefully be different. We have had a few decorations in and out of the house for 3+ decades. Routinely around 300 kids appeared at our door. (wish a neighbor had warned us in our 1st year)

When we became snowbirds, due to family obligations, we could not leave until snow had started and we towed through the snowbelt. Never fun. This year is different. We are leaving for a warmer climate on October 30th. Our house will be dark on Halloween.

Likewise, just a little inside and out. More of a combination of decorations for fall and Halloween. Just our house, not the RV.

A little bit. Nothing elaborate.

I buy one pumpkin, paint facial features with black paint, attach a black ‘top hat’, and set him outside the door. On November first, he comes in and gets cut up and cooked. My dog and I then have multiple treats of pumpkin bread throughout the year.

Halloween is my birthday. We don’t decorate.
