The icing on the cake – or should we say the butter on the popcorn – is when we see movies starring our favorite vehicles: RVs! We rounded up our top 8 picks for the best movies that feature new or used motorhomes.
Lost in America (1985)
Starring Albert Brooks and Julie Hagerty, this hilarious comedy follows a husband and wife duo quit their jobs and set out to travel cross-country in a Winnebago.
National Lampoons Christmas Vacation (1989)
This is a holiday classic! Who could forget Uncle Eddie (Randy Quaid) and family rolling up to the Griswolds’ house in their run-down motorhome?

Long Long Trailer (1953)
Newlyweds Nicky (Desi Arnaz) and Tacy (Lucille Ball) decide to purchase a brand new 36-foot travel trailer and turn their honeymoon into a road-trip. This 1950’s rom-com is definitely one to watch.

We’re the Millers (2013)

If you like Mel Brooks movies, you’ll love this hilarious parody film that features a Winnebago. The motorhome serves as “Eagle 5”, the infamous Spaceship RV – get ready to for “ludicrous speed!”
The Incredibles (2004)
This is a movie that can be enjoyed by the entire family! In this animated adventure, the Incredibles family is not your ordinary family – they are actually all superheroes that at one point in the film while trying to save the world from evil, take a wild ride through the city in a sleek looking motorhome.
After a few misfortunes, two friends (played by Bill Murray and Harold Ramis) decide to join the Army “for fun”. This hilarious comedy features the EM-50 Urban Assault Vehicle, which is a top-secret RV in the U.S. Army. The UAV is based on a GMC Palm Beach motorhome.
The Blues Brothers (1980)
Starring John Belushi and Dan Akroyd, this funny film is sure to keep the family entertained! And although the RV in the fil is referred to as a “Winnebago”, when it is, in fact, a Fleetwood Southwind, it still makes our list of best movies with RVs!
