RV Movies to Make You Laugh and Cry


Chihuahua Eating Popcorn and watching a Movie
Best RV Movies

This list of RV Movies will have you grabbing the popcorn and maybe even the tissues!

This comedy stars Robin Williams and Jeff Daniels and has the best dumping scene in any movie ever; with a massive explosion that leaves Bob (Robin Williams) covered in an unpleasant situation. The funny thing is we have all been there. Bob goes to the dump and realizes he has no clue what he is doing. So, two kindhearted fellow campers offer advice, but they are as clueless as Bob. This scene alone is worth watching it repeatedly.

There are lots of mishaps along the way on this RV adventure! A run in with racoons, his laptop gets stolen, no internet (we’ve all been there) and constant run ins with an obnoxious, banjo playing, partridge family singing family that sells car horns for a living. This movie will have you laughing, singing and saying, "OMG, that's so US!"

We Are the Millers
This is a very adult movie! It is packed full of comedy, truth and intense moments that leave you cringing. It is the type of movie that has you up pacing and covering your

eyes in disbelief. The Millers are the luckiest drug smuggling, RV driving, fraudulent family on the road. At one point the dad pulls the RV over and sets his fake family straight on how things are; funny thing is while he is trying to convince the audience that it is a fake situation it comes across as real as my family or yours.

Leisure Seekers
The title says it all and we all seek to leisure; lay by the pool, travel the countryside, see new sites and bask in the sun. Sounds great right? Well not so much in this movie. Grab your tissues, you are going to need them. This movie is sad & realistic and sometimes sad movies are some of the best made. Movies like this bring out the best emotions in us, make us better people, and sometimes you just need a good cry. John and Ella both stricken with terminal illnesses decide to take one last voyage, to the Florida Keys, in their vintage camper they call the Leisure Seeker. Many of us travel with illnesses and John and Ella are not immune. John has Alzheimer’s and Ella is stricken with cancer. This movie is about their last RV adventure and all the trials and tribulations that come with doing so and dealing with knowing death is imminent.

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
Who doesn’t love Chevy Chase? In this movie Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo host the most chaotic, patriotic, crazy family holiday event this side of the crapper. Speaking of crapper National Lampoons Christmas Vacation is known for its “the crappers full scene”. I don't know what it is but there seems to be a theme with RV movies involving emptying the sewer and something going terribly wrong. It could be because it hits close to home since we’ve all experienced that “oh no” moment when emptying the tank.

While this movie may not be completely about an RV you will surely enjoy Uncle Eddie and his home on wheels.

A Goofy Movie

Goofy Movie is not just for the kids; it is a heart-warming cartoon about a goof and his kid. Like most of us Goofy wants so much to bond with his teenage son that he decides to take him on a camping trip. When Goofy’s friend, Pete, finds out about the fishing trip he grabs his son, jumps in his modern RV and meets up with Goofy and Max down the road. It takes Pete about twenty seconds to set up camp; complete with a pool, lounge area, and basketball court. While the RV scenes are short in this movie, they are memorable. A Goofy Movie is about love, nature, bigfoot and camping.

If you have any other favorites, share them with us.  A few RV movies that get honorable mention are Spaceballs, Incredibles, and The Long, Long Trailer with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.
