Get in the holiday spirit with an over-the-road trip in your RV. With a new or used fifth wheel, folding camper, travel trailer or motorhome and accessories from Bent's RV, you can celebrate in style in your home-away-from-home.

If this is your first time celebrating the holidays in your RV, consider these tips to make your trip a festive affair.

  • To remove the stress of heavy traffic, begin your travel plans a few days in advance to avoid peak traffic situations. When returning home, stay an extra day or two to give other travelers a head start and avoid traffic jams due to holiday travelers.
  • If you're traveling to a destination that may experience inclement weather, include an emergency kit with extra blankets, batteries, flares and flashlights, matches, candles, non-perishable food items, water and a manual can opener. You never know when snow or ice may have you in a holding pattern.
  • Decorating is part and parcel of the holidays. Include a wreath on the door, and sparkling lights strung inside and around the outside of the RV.
  • Decorate a live or artificial tree. For convenience, you can also buy miniature, pre-decorated trees.
  • Keep the kids busy with construction paper, glitter, glue, tape, and markers so they can make holiday cutouts to hang in each window.
  • Place fragrant cinnamon sticks and brooms, and pine, mulberry, and cinnamon candles and potpourri around the inside of the RV.
  • Bring along goodies like hot chocolate, cider, eggnog, and the fixings to make smores and enjoy an evening around the campfire singing holiday songs.
  • Use every space possible to hang an ornament and stockings filled with gifts. Use small cup hooks placed under cabinets or shelves to hang the festive items.
  • Baking is a great way to celebrate. Make gingerbread or sugar cookies and decorate with icing and sprinkles to enjoy by the campfire with a seasonal beverage.
  • Collect evergreen branches and pinecones and create a centerpiece with ribbons and ornaments to add pizzazz to holiday meals.
  • Bring along seasonal music and movies the entire family can enjoy.
