For Thanksgiving, RV campers and travelers have a unique opportunity to celebrate this great American holiday in a whole new way. What are some ways you can celebrate Turkey Day in your RV? Here are some tips to get you into the festive mood.

Thanksgiving specials in a new city

You can meet other travelers and the best part about it all? You don’t have to worry about all the clean up! All you have to worry about is catching the football game or getting your Black Friday shopping plan in place.

Some cities will have Thanksgiving harvest festivals or “all-in-one” Thanksgiving meals you can take on the go. You can enjoy your turkey dinner in the comfort of your RV or camper while taking in the beautiful sights of the changing seasons.

DIY Thanksgiving right in the RV

  • Put everything into one hearty and warm meal with a slow cooker turkey dinner! All you have to do is throw everything in together, sit back, relax and enjoy spending time with your loved ones.
  • Traditional style southern biscuits are also a great on the go meal that can be topped off with some gravy or mashed potatoes. They are soft, chewy, and will keep you filled up during your travels.
  • Or you can get really adventurous and try out a gelatin salad or molded salad like back in the 1950s and 1960s! Make it a retro Thanksgiving with a great dessert (or full dinner) that is easy to make with an RV kitchen at your disposal.

Lakeside (or Ocean side) Thanksgiving celebration

Give thanks to your camping lifestyle with seasonal vegetables and even ditch the turkey for some venison or other wild game meats to make it even more memorable and exciting. Who says you need to have the “normal” Thanksgiving in order to have an enjoyable holiday? You can take in the sights right from your RV and enjoy some great food with loved ones.
