Before you put your RV away for the season, you might want to consider keeping it in commission until Halloween. It actually makes for a great mini haunted house that entices trick or treaters and makes your home one of the most popular houses in the neighborhood, all with just a little work.
To start you want to work on the outside of your RV. Some people suggest creating a mummified look by essentially toilet papering it, but we think it is more fun to cover it with spider webs and place fake spiders and bugs on the outside. As a bonus these can be used year after year, unlike toilet paper which just goes to waste.
If you want to get super crazy try placing some boards over your RV’s windows. Of course, you’ll want to make sure you secure them without hurting the exterior of your RV.
In the yard around your RV place fake headstone and maybe a fake hand or two sticking out of them.
Smash some pumpkins and place at the entrance of your RV. You can get creative and use green jello to look like puke coming out of the pumpkin. Red jello can be used as a “blood” substitute that isn’t too scary for kids.
Inside you can set up a fog machine and strobe light to create a spooky atmosphere. Have some friends dress up and sit in your chairs. When someone walks by, have them jump and scare them. Trust us, it’s something that will keep you entertained the entire night!
If you’ve got spooky tunes on CD or on your iPhone you can plug that into your RV’s entertainment system and let that play while people come in and out.
Your RV haunted house is only as limited as your imagination. You can make it as scary or family friendly as you want to.
