Vacation in an RV rental is an exhilarating adventure! And with the right people can be an experience that’s retold in a story for years to come.

Nonetheless, even for the most level-headed adventurer, the constant chorus of “Are we there yet?” can get old quick on long legs of the journey.

It’s tempting to hideaway on a phone or tablet, but that beats half the fun in going on an RV adventure!

Instead, there are a variety of activities to beat the boredom and make memories with your travel companions.

For some great family fun while driving, check out the fun games to play while on the road we’ve listed below!

5 Fun RV Driving Games For the Whole Family


1. I Spy

We’re starting this list of fun games to play while traveling with a classic!

I Spy is a simple game to play on any RV trip appropriate for participants of all ages.

A typical game of I Spy starts with one person saying, “I spy, with my little eye…” and choosing something they can see to describe.

This can be anything—from something spotted out the window or even something in the RV! The rest of the passengers must guess the object to move onto the next guessing item.

2. License Plate Game

An interesting part of a road-tripping is the wide variety of license plates you get to see. To spice things up, try playing the license plate game the next time you’re on the road.

The goal of this game is to score points by identifying the most license plates. The type of plate can vary, depending on the rules that are set.

First, create a point system and decide who will keep track of points. Then, decide on the rules:
  • Are you looking for a plate for each state?
  • Are you trying to find the plate that is the farthest away from where you are?
Once you’ve got the rules down, start license plate hunting!

3. Exaggerated Yearbook Superlatives

Looking for games to play while on the road that test your creativity?

This game tasks participants with coming up with creative ‘most likely to’ titles for RV passengers!

Start with easy titles, like ‘most likely to succeed.’ After someone names a title, RV participants choose who they think the title best describes! Then, think outside of the box with titles like ‘most likely to move to Mars’!

You may learn a few new things about yourself and your travel companions in the process.

4. Explain a Movie Plot Badly

If your family is full of movie buffs, then this is an RV driving game worth trying!

Each person thinks of a movie they’ve seen and the basic storyline. Then, participants take turns explaining the movie plot poorly.

The goal is to describe the movie’s plot as badly as possible without making it impossible for others to guess what movie it is.

5. Group Storytelling

Maybe your family loves to write or read. If so, a fun activity for road trips is storytelling.

Start with one passenger creating the story’s introduction. Then, another passenger builds on the story, adding unique ideas. Together, RV passengers take turns, creating a wildly imaginative story plot.

Here’s an example of how to play the game:
Passenger 1: “Once upon a time, there was a princess in a kingdom who wanted to become a knight.”

Passenger 2: “Her parents wanted to help her achieve this dream, so the princess had a special suit of knightly armor made.”

This game can keep going for as long as you want—or until the story reaches its conclusion!
