Did anyone watch "American Nomads"? I enjoyed it twice so far.

X-2, while I have never heard of, nor watched most of those, I suppose the term "RV" was spoken somewhere in them, which qualifies them to be on the list.
Also, I love Christmas Vacation, but I don't consider it an RV movie just because of the appearance of Eddie's rolling scrap yard.

I didn't look for very long as I was getting blitzed with ads, but although not a movie, the series "The Walking Dead" features many scenes of people living/traveling/being attacked by zombies in TT's and motorhomes.
Experience without good judgment is worthless; good judgment without experience is still good judgment!

This is interesting as one of my IMDB lists is movies where use of a RV features in the plot. I have 15 in the list, and while I know it is not complete because it is only films I've watched, there is little overlap with this list.

I have about 10 times as many in my list of road trip or journey films, neither is a very big number considering I've watched about 6000 films well enough to rate them, and another 1600 "I know I watched it but I don't remember much about it" or "maybe I watchhed it but I won't be sure unless I watch it again and it certainly wasn't that good."

What I notice about Hollywood's use of RVs is the frequency the serve as a plot device to make the occupants victims of whatever horror is out there, whether beast or criminal.

One particular Airstream has an important part as well as a caravan of Airstreams go down the road a couple of times during the movie.

That was a heck of a good movie, too! 🙂

Until I perused the list I would not have thought that many horror movies had an "RV" component! Creepy. No wonder there are so many "No Overnight Parking" signs - it has nothing to do with ordinances and everything to do with subliminal messages! LOL 🙂 People are just plain afraid of us and they just don't know it.

I was stumped on The Blues Brothers, until I remembered that they were chased by the Good Ole Boys Band in a cab-over camper.

I was also stumped on Borat, until I remembered that there were scenes where he was picked up by college kids in a motorhome.

I guess it doesn't take much RV content to make it on this list.

I agree. The Long, Long Trailer and RV are the only real RV movies.

a lot of the films on that list did indeed have an RV in them. but that's like compiling a list of VW Beetle movies where a Beetle was seen in a one or more scenes.
