Tips for Celebrating the Fourth of July in Your RV

Posted on July 3, 2017

Like many people who own motorhomes and RVs, you probably like to get as much use out of yours as possible. A great way to do so is by incorporating your RV into various holiday celebrations. With the Fourth of July right on the horizon, why not hit the road to celebrate it? What better way to pay homage to American independence than by taking in some of this beautiful country from the comfort of a Class A motorhome, toy hauler or other motorhome? If you're going to do it, you might as well do it right. Read on to pick up some great tips for making the most of your Fourth of July getaway.

Choose a Location

You don't necessarily have to go somewhere special to celebrate Independence Day, but it's a lot more fun if you can! Many gas RV owners choose patriotic destinations that hold historical or cultural significance for our country. For example, you might head over to Mount Rushmore or opt to spend the holiday weekend in the nation's capital, Washington, D.C. If you'd prefer to spend the holiday in a festive community environment, look for campgrounds that offer special holiday events for families. You're sure to find plenty of great options regardless of where you are located.

Make it Festive

If you're specifically going to travel in your Class C motorhome to celebrate the Fourth, shouldn't you decorate a little? There's no need to go overboard here, and you don't have to spend a fortune. In fact, the local dollar store should have everything that you need. It's amazing what a few colorful balloons, streamers, bunting and the like can do, and setting everything up is fast and easy. You might even set up a Bluetooth speaker and play patriotic music throughout the holiday.

Get Grilling

Grilling for the Fourth of July holiday is a time-honored American tradition, so it's a great thing to incorporate into your getaway in your gas or diesel RV. A portable grill will do just fine, but you could always up the ante by investing in a RV-specific grill that attaches to the side or even to the hitch. If you really want to go all out, invest in a portable smoker so that you can serve up some authentic barbecue for those who attend your shindig. From brats to burgers to steaks, there is no end of the possibilities when it comes to grilling for the holiday.

Be Safe

For safety's sake, find local, officially sanctioned fireworks events to attend to celebrate the Fourth. Don't even bring sparklers into the campground before finding out about the rules and regulations--they may not be allowed. If they are, use them at a very safe distance from your Class A toy hauler to avoid unfortunate mishaps. If you witness anyone at the campground being unsafe with fireworks, bring it to the attention of the staff or of the local authorities. Fireworks are a lot of fun, but caution is always in order!

Whether you own an RUV or a Class A motorhome, there are lots of fun ways to incorporate an excursion into the Fourth of July holiday. Even if you are almost out of time, hop on it, hit the road and see where it takes you--you never know what you will discover!
