Best Christmas Movies to Watch in Your Motorhome

Oh, to be spending time with family in a home on wheels! From an abundance of outdoor space to play frisbee and kick the football, to roomy recreational areas for board games and barbeques on the daily – there is just something so unique and fun about a summer holiday spent in a motorhome. 

If you're lucky enough to be having Christmas in a motorhome or campervan, embrace every precious family moment.  There are so many memories to be made!

If you're the festive type, cover your motorhome in tinsel and lights, sing carols on the long drives and of course, watch as many Christmas movies as you can in the evenings.

Our resident Cruisin' / Christmas film fanatic has given us a list of the very best Christmas movies to watch while spending December in your motorhome.

 

YOUNG FAMILIES

8-Bit Christmas

8-bit christmas

This one is enjoyable for the whole family! 8-Bit Christmas goes back to 1980, where ten-year-old Jake embarks on an epic journey to get the ultimate Christmas gift – a Nintendo. A hilarious comedy of errors full of Christmas spirit and nostalgic imagery.

The Santa Clause

The Santa Clause

One of the best and most classic Christmas movies must be The Santa Clause starring Tim Allen.  After a strange accident, Scott Calvin finds himself in a peculiar situation. The single dad is gaining weight, his hair turns white and is rapidly growing a beard!

5 star rating

 

The Christmas Chronicles

Siblings Kate & Teddy try to catch Santa Claus on camera, but things don't go quite as planned. Instead, they embark on an incredible adventure! A fun mixture of live-action and animation.  With Kurt Russel portraying him, this may be the coolest Santa of all time.

 

The Polar Express

The Polar Express

The tale of a young boy that has the adventure of a lifetime on an unexpected train journey to the North Pole. The young ones can pretend their on their very own Polar Express! A beautiful piece of cinema that everyone in the motorhome will appreciate.

3.5 star rating

 

The Grinch (2018)

The tale of The Grinch, a cynical scrouge who hates everything about Christmas! Although a fantastic portrayal, we chose the 2018 cartoon version over Jim Carrey's The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.  This take on the Dr Suess classic is a little less frightening for the little ones and a whole lot more colorful!

 

Home Alone

Home Alone

Sometimes, eight-year-old Kevin wishes his annoyingly big family weren't around. When he's accidentally left behind the families annual Christmas holiday, he can't believe his wish actually came true. He's home alone! So so much fun, very worthy of the yearly airplay it gets on most televisions.

 

ADULTS / OLDER KIDS

 

A Sunburnt Christmas

A Sunburnt Christmas

Skip the Christmas films full of winter brews and cold snow - get a load of A Sunburnt Christmas! An incredible Australian-made Christmas film about a runaway criminal who ends up in the shed of a struggling family's rural home. 

5 star rating

 

LoveHard

Natalie and Josh chat online about love, life and their favourite Christmas movies. Things don't go quite as expected when Natalie surprises him ahead of Christmas.  Such a fun Christmas rom-com!

 

Happiest Season

Happiest Season

An incredible all-star cast that follows loved up couple Abby and Harper. When Harper takes Abby home for the holidays, things don't go quite to plan as their harboring one massive secret. A modern Christmas movie that is bound to be timeless classic!

 

Twas The Fight Before Christmas

A wild story that follows an American man who is so Christmas obsessed that chaos erupts! Being a documentary, this is an exceptionally different style from your typical Christmas movie. It is absolutely worth a watch! You'll be sure to smile at your camp neighbours  after this one.

4 star rating

 

The Holiday

The Holiday

Great rom-com, great Christmas flick and great movie to watch while on holiday! Starring Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet, Kate & Amanda swap homes for two weeks over the Christmas holidays. A heart-warming Christmas classic!

 

Love Actually

Love Actually

A movie that seems to get better after every watch – Love Actually tells the tale of eight families and friends dealing with all sorts of life and love pressures during December.  You will laugh, cry and everything in between during this one.
