Inflatable Santa RVing

Saw one of these at WallyWorld a month ago. I was a whopping $149 at my
local store. They only had 1 on the shelf and 1 on display. Apparently they
are now out of stock online and in my store.

5.5' Tall x 4.5' Long Animated Airblown Santa in Camper Christmas Inflatable: Christmas Decor : Walmart.com

It looked neat inside high up on the shelf. One online reviewer said it can't hold itself up when it rains. Probably due to the large surface area. I wanted it but guess I'll let that one pass......

Anyone out there have one?

I also saw that the other day in Walmart. Kinda of pricey and I'm not into the inflatables anyway, but it looked pretty cool.

One of the folks here in our little town have one of these in their front yard. I'll have to get a pic of it.

This is funny cause I was just looking at the same thing last night, to take on this weekends camping trip. I also read a lot of online reviews of where people said it wasn't as good as another one that the trailer looked like an Airstream (pic below).

I am about to go to our local Wally World and look at this one in the following link of Santa and his reindeer doing some tent camping.

4' Tall x 4.5' Long Airblown Santa with Reindeers Camping Scene Christmas Inflatable: Christmas Decor : Walmart.com

EDIT: OK, I now own the one of Santa in the tent. LOL

It was at my Lowes last year but I passed because of the high price tag. Then after Christmas a member here gave me the heads up that his local Lowes had a couple of them in stock so I had my local Lowes called and get it shipped to SoCal. The best part was I got the reduced price (around $30).

I've waited a long time to see it up but this coming Saturday will be the right time to put it out in the yard.

If you search the forums for "RV Christmas Decoration" you can find another discussion from last year on a very similar blowup camper with Santa from lowes.

Talking

Here's what camping Santa looks like at night in our front yard with no other kind of lighting. The campfire light flashes at different intervals.

Pic one is with campfire light off and Pic two is with campfire light one

My son and mother have been laughing, looking at it.

Put up Santa at our campsite this weekend. We got some good laughs from other campers and even had the park maintenance guys stop and take some pics.

Not a big fan of inflatables, but if you're celebrated "Christmas" with inflatables, why not try this.

The inflatable camper at Big Dawg's house is our favorite by far and not due to the reason you think. Our neighbor down the street has it. When they put it up, it leans slightly so when Santa pops out it looks like he is vomiting out of the trailer. It's hilarious and my kids laugh hard every time they see it. The neighbor hasn't fixed it yet but I can't believe he hasn't noticed it.
