Fall RV Decor: How to Decorate Your RV For Fall on a Budget

I love decorating our tiny home, and fall RV decor is no exception! However, I try to be as frugal as possible and still keep things minimal. Storing tons of decor in a 5th wheel is not super realistic.

Today I want to share with you how I decorated for camping in fall in our home on wheels for less than $50!

Where to purchase fall RV decor

Dollar Tree

Dollar Tree? Yep! The secret to cheaply decorating your camper is buying everything you can at Dollar Tree.

I purchased 95% of my fall RV decor at Dollar Tree and saved a small fortune by doing so. You can find cute wall decor, fall signs, fall leaf garlands, little decorative pumpkins, and more. And the best part is they’re only $1 each!

I checked a few other craft stores to compare prices and it was crazy how much more expensive everything was.

For example, a 6 ft strand of fall leaf garland was $25 at Michael’s. Granted the thickness of the foliage was a lot better, but instead, I purchased 3 6 ft fall leaf garlands at Dollar Tree and wove them together to create the thickness I wanted. Instead of spending $25, I only spent $3!

Fall signs are also very popular. But why spend $10-15 for one, when you can get some really cute ones for $1?! Ok, you get the point. Moving on!


Michael’s has tons of cute fall RV decor! When I went, all the fall decor was 40% off. I didn’t purchase much there. (Although it would have been easy to do so!)

I did however get a cute vase with the initial of our last name on it, “M”. The original price was $15 and I spent $9.

I use it in all my decor and can switch out the floral stems each season. It perfectly compliments my kitchen decor so it’s a win, win!

Hobby Lobby

Although I didn’t purchase any of my fall RV decor at Hobby Lobby, it is worth mentioning that they have a lot of cute options.

The last time I was in the store, all of their fall decorating items were 40% off on sale as well.

Incorporating current RV decor in your fall RV decor

I love finding items that can be used as decor year-round. If you have anything that can be changed up just a bit and repurposed for each season, then that can be a great way to save money.

My mom gave me a cute decorative lantern as a gift one Christmas. It sits on this countertop year-round. By adding some fall leaves around it and a cute little pumpkin sign, I am able to incorporate it into my fall RV decor.

In a couple of months, I will be able to switch out the leaves for garland and it will match my Christmas RV decor!

Don’t worry, organizing and storing holiday decor in an RV isn’t as hard as you may think. Even if you have limited storage space and live in an RV full-time.

How I decorated our RV for fall

Decorating above the slides

I love adding decor above the slides. I feel like it quickly dresses up the room without really having to do much.

First, I measured the length of each space that I had. Then I used that to figure out how many strands of leaf garland I would need. Each slide needed 3 strands to reach across and I knew I wanted them to be doubled up for extra thickness so I needed a total of 6 for each RV slide.

I also used 5 strands in the attic railing and 2 strands above the pantry and cabinets. To hang them, I used these command hooks. I love using command hooks in the 5th wheel because they’re easy to use and they’re also easy to take down when you no longer need them.

I also hung an autumn sign in the corner on the wall above the slide using the same command hook.

The right image shows a white vase with a black M filled with orange fall foliage and an orange pumpkin sitting on a table by a window.

On the table and countertops

For the table, I used the vase I purchased at Michael’s and added 8 fall leaf stems I purchased at Dollar Tree. I also added a cute little sparkly pumpkin beside the vase.

I don’t usually like to add a ton of decor to the table so that it doesn’t take up too much table space and make meals difficult.

For the corner countertop, I used the lantern I mentioned earlier. I surrounded it with 1 strand of fall decor and added a cute little quote pumpkin from Dollar Tree.

Above the door

This red sparkly “Give Thanks” sign was left over from my fall decor last year and was purchased at Dollar Tree as well.

I hung it with this type of command hook since it was slightly heavier and I didn’t want to chance it falling.

I also used two strands of the fall leaves doubled up around the top of the door attached to the earlier command hooks.

Fall RV decor doesn’t have to be super elaborate or expensive. I hope this post has been helpful and that you’ll be doing your fall decorating soon!
