Independence Day is just around the corner (just 22 days at this publish date), which means it's time to stand tall, puff up our chests with pride, and deck out our RVs in red, white, and blue!
We've compiled a list of some of the best 4th of July RV decorations for your RV and campsite. We've broken them into categories: hanging, lighting, interior, and outdoor.
For funsies, we've also written an RV parody sung to The Star Spangled Banner that represents the RV communities' freedom and fellowship. We hope it makes you proud to be an American RVer…

The RVer Anthem (sung to the Star Spangled Banner)
We even made you THREE renditions to try out — and if you really want to sing along, pull up a karaoke version on Youtube and sing along… or just click the video below and use our new lyrics!
Oh say, can you see by the campfire's light,
A row of RVs, all shiny and bright,
Whose Class As and Class Cs proudly do soar,
As we celebrate freedom, with s'mores galore!
The sun's golden rays, on this great Fourth of July,
Illumine the motorhomes parked side by side,
Their fiberglass gleaming, their decals aglow,
As we gather 'round grills for a barbeque show.
From coast to coast, these homes on wheels roam,
Through mountains, deserts, and cities they comb,
With slide-outs extending, providing more space,
To honor this nation, this wonderful place.
And as dusk settles in and stars start to gleam,
We light up the sky with a grand fireworks scheme,
Red, white, and blue explosions fill the air,
While families rejoice, in RV parks everywhere.
Oh, RVs on wheels, the symbol we love,
Representing the freedom we're all part of,
As we join in chorus, with pride in our voice,
Saluting this land, where RVers rejoice!
So raise up your glass, let's make a toast,
To RVs and freedom, the things we love most,
On this Independence Day, united we stand,
In our homes on wheels, traveling this great land!
We hope you enjoyed that – now back to our post about 4th of July RV decoration!
4th of July RV Decorations
One way to show your patriotism is to hang fun, colorful decorations. You can hang them from your RV awning or canopy. If the campsite has a permanent sun shelter over the picnic table, which also makes a great hanging location for fun decor.

This American windsock design is made to look like the American flag. Purchase a pair and hang them on both sides of your awning for a fun 4th of July effect.
This design has several options, including a 40” windsock, a set of two 40” windsocks, or a larger 60” windsock design.

4th of July RV Lighting
Lighting is also a great way to show your patriotic spirit. Not only does it display our country’s colors proudly. It creates the perfect ambiance when the sun sets.
**NOTE: Just be sure to turn off all lights during quiet hours, as you do not want them to interfere with your camping neighbors' sleep. That's one of the 15 Unwritten Rules of Being a Good Camping Neighbor.
