The Long, Long Trailer
Released in 1953, this classic film has stood the test of time. Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, famous for I Love Lucy, star as newlyweds living out of a motorhome in hopes of seeing the country together while Arnaz’s character has to travel for work. Of course things aren’t always as romantic as they seem, and the couple is soon struggling with all types of hilarious turmoil. The Long, Long Trailer will have you in stitches, and can even provide some ideas on what to avoid for your upcoming motorhome road trip!
National Lampoon’s Vacation and Christmas Vacation
While not strictly motorhome movies, these two comedies are quintessential family road trip films. Released in 1983 and 1989, respectively, both chronicle the mishaps and misadventures of vacations with Chevy Chase’s Griswold family. In Vacation, Chase’s character is hell-bent on getting his family to the amusement park Wally World. In Christmas Vacation, the Griswold’s host the whole family for the holidays – including a surprise appearance by Cousin Eddie who happens to show up in what else but a beat-up motorhome!
We’re the Millers
This 2013 motorhome-themed movie may not be family friendly but sure provides the laughs. Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Anniston star as two hard-on-their-luck neighbors caught in a major bind when an international drug deal goes awry. To remedy the situation, Sudeikis’ character assembles a fake family and large motorhome to go on a “family road trip” to Mexico to make right on his debts. Once again, this flick is decidedly not for the whole family but certainly give the adults a hearty chuckle or two!
