A Travel Tree is a great holiday idea for RVers.

Wherever home may be for the holidays, there’s still room for a little decor to bring on lots of holiday spirit!

‘Tis the Season to Begin an RV Travel Tree!


As RV travelers, we always look for a sentimental souvenir to help us remember the destination or experience of a trip. 

However, space is often limited in a motorhome or travel trailer, causing us to run out of room for campground mug collections or other destination knick-knacks found at gift shops. 

A Travel Tree is a great way for travelers to decorate for the holidays and collect keepsakes from places they’ve visited. In fact, many national parks, campgrounds, and tourist attractions carry ornament souvenirs in their gift shops.

Not only is a Travel Tree space-friendly for RV units, but they also hold so many memories! Our little tree started out as a small, 18-inch tree, perfect for the motorhome dash. Year after year, ornaments filled the little tree as our mileage grew.



And the BEST PART, these souvenirs won’t be forgotten. They will make an appearance year after year!



Without a doubt, decorating your own Travel Tree will always bring back special memories. It’s a wonderful way to reminisce over the journeys and adventures you’ve had.


Consider a collapsible, pop up Christmas tree for another space-saving option.


No Gift Shop Ornament?

Make your own! Find sea shells, pine cones, or fill an empty clear ornament with treasures. It’s a great craft to do with kids to add to your holiday collection!


Ornament Storage

Store your special ornaments in an ornament storage box. One with separate compartments for each ornament is ideal, so they stay protected on bumpy roads ahead!
