Decorating your home helps to get both residents and visitors into the spirit of the season. Your RV is no exception. Fall is a ripe season for decorating because it possesses an easily recognizable color scheme, identifiable iconography, and many associated symbols. With the proper use of props, colors, and patterns, your RV will scream autumn in no time.
Dress for the season.
Dress your space, that is. Proper use of color is the first and best tool in your arsenal for decorating. Fall colors include deep reds, burnt orange, golden yellow, and earthy browns. A good strategy is to use those browns as a neutral and to use reds, oranges, and yellows as pops of accent.
Make use of icons and symbols
Fall has many associated symbols and icons. The leaf, the pumpkin, the owl… these and many others are quickly identified with autumn. The use of such symbols will help to further establish your theme.
Decorating isn’t just visual.
While decor is primarily visual, it’s not only visual. You can enhance and reinforce your decor with aromas. When your RV isn’t on the move, you can light scented candles with the smells of the season, like pumpkin pie, apple cider, even leaves. You can also use a potpourri mix that’s suitable for the season.
Use interchangeable elements.
This means that you ought to use decorating items that are easily switched out and stored. Things like pillow shams, curtains, wreaths… anything that can be switched out when the next season rolls around. Try to avoid anything that’s too bulky or large. After all, you’re traveling in an RV.

Watkins Glen State Park is a lesser known park located in New York’s Finger Lakes region outside of the village of Watkins Glen, just south of Seneca Lake in Schuyler County.
The lower area of the park is near the village while the upper area is open forest.
In operation to the public since 1863, it operated as a resort under private ownership until 1906, at which time it was purchased by the state and managed by the Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation.
Only 1.2 square miles in size, the park is known for its centerpiece attraction, the Rainbow Gorge. The narrow gorge is 400 feet deep and is cut through by Glen Creek, which feeds the gorgeous Rainbow Falls. The gorge offers a wholly unique and beautiful site. A geological wonder, Rainbow Gorge is worth the drive alone.
This is not to minimize the rest of the park, however, as Watkins Glen State Park packs a lot into a small package. There are also three trails, which are open from mid-May to early November. There are also numerous camping sites that offer picnic tables, pavilions, playgrounds, dump stations, and showers. There’s also a gift shop located onsite. Fishing and hiking are popular activities at the park.
