Will you/did you put up a Christmas tree this holiday season?

Is your holiday season incomplete without a Christmas tree? For many RVers, the answer is yes. Oh, some of us put up smaller trees than back when the kids were small and Santa came down the chimney each year. And some of us aren’t really into buying a tree off a lot anymore, so we buy an artificial one from our favorite hardware store and use it year after year.

Many readers live in their RVs full-time, and … well, there isn’t a whole bunch of space in our tiny abodes. Still, where there’s a will there’s a way, and even a two-foot mini-tree can make our mobile homes festive.

So what about you? Tree or no tree?

5 yrs as full-time Rvrs and I hung a sparkly white garland in the shape of a tree, with white lights, homemade cloth ornaments, a wreath found at a 2nd hand store for the top of the tree! Also added colorful outside lights! Love it all!

My son painted me a Christmas tree. I do add lights to the inside of the RV. I was going to add some outside too but the mosquitoes here in Houston are thick and mean, even with Zika cases aplenty the county won’t spray, so inside will be enough this year.
Head, shoulders, knees and toes mosquito bites is our Christmas song this year.

Going to the daughter’s house for Christmas Eve, then packing up for Louisiana for the rest of winter. Less hassle to skip the tree at home.

We will be gone to in laws for the holidays so put up lights but no tree this year.

I put up a lighted outdoor tree type decoration, but my wife handles the inside stuff. Don’t see one yet and since space is tight this year, I doubt I will.

We usually have 2 or 3 Christmas trees, but none so far. DW is busy assisting her mother and father with health problems. It is unclear whether we’ll even decorate this year, let alone have a tree. Having said this, I should add that the trees (if there are any) and decorations are all associated with our sticks-and-bricks, not the RV.

Why can’t I see your polls anymore. I have chrome. Did I change a setting that I shouldn’t have?

Hi, Greg. Sorry you’re having problems with the polls. Here’s what one of our IT folks, Jessica, explained: “Sometimes script blockers and ad blockers interfere with our polls since they are from a 3rd party site. If you have one of these, try and turn it off and see if that fixes the issue.” So, maybe something has changed in your settings? Good luck! Have a great day. 😀 –Diane at

Two kittens, no tree this year.

Since I’m in a super tiny camper, 13’Scamp, I hung a red/ white tree that is actually a tree decoration. Plus a 3D Christmas tree card on a cabinet door. They’re both “artificial” trees 😁

This is our first holiday in our camper. At home I would put up 4 different size trees. Now I’m limited to one 2 foot tree but it’ll be beautiful as there is no such thing as an ugly Xmas tree. Unless it’s the Griswold’s after a squirrel incident 😆 🤣

Since we’re living in our 5th wheel until our house is built, I had to answer no. First time ever! But I helped my 87 year old Mom decorate her tree.

We put up 5 tastefully decorated artificial trees throughout our townhouse every year. It takes my wife and I about a week or so to put them up but our house is beautiful during the holidays.

Yes. All of 3′ tall sits on the table. 15 minutes up and decorated and the same putting it up. Years of past it took two days with an 8′ real tree.

I responded with a “yes” but I must confess, it’s less than 2ft tall and sits on the dining table.

A real dinky one, but yes we did.

three total. Two artificial inside ( rotating ) and a ten footer outside I planted twelve years ago when it was one inch tall. It gets sheared every year so it is extremely thick

In your RV?

We put up a little 2 foot Christmas tree that has lights attached in our coach! Gotta feel a little like Christmas! Just remember the reason for the season!

Yes, I put up 2. They are made of good one side board and take up very little room!
