Trying to figure out how to organize your RV can sometimes feel like an IQ test. The goal is to stuff as much into the vehicle as possible without making it feel unlivable.
Fortunately, this post is here to give you a head start. We take a look at all the ways you can find storage solutions in every nook and cranny of your RV.
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s dive in.
Under-Bed Storage Bins
One of the easiest ways to create more storage space in your RV bedroom is to use under-bed storage bins or drawers. These are ideal for storing things you don’t need immediately but might come in handy in the future. You can imagine using them for things like extra towels, seasonal clothing, and bedding. They’re also great for using vacuum bags for compressing bulky items, like clothes, and storing them out of the way until you need them.
Shelves And Hooks
Another excellent way to get more space for things in your RV is to install shelves and hooks. These are great for storing books, jewelry, coats, and umbrellas. You can combine them with baskets and bins for things like womens thermal socks or underwear.
Hanging Bathroom Organizers
Moving onto the bathroom, you can use hanging organizers to arrange everything and put items in their proper place, such as toiletries and so on. Bathrooms can be difficult to manage in RVs because they tend to be extremely small, similar to an aircraft bathroom. Adding hanging organizers or shower caddies that attach to the door or the wall can be an excellent way to free up space and fit everything you need inside the room.
Another cool idea is to use magnetic strips to store small items like tweezers, nail clippers, and bobby pins. You can place these wherever you want, letting you take advantage of all the available vertical space. For example, you could place strips on the side of the mirror or inside a cabinet door. It’s an excellent solution for RVers who don’t have much counter space but have a lot of gadgets and trinkets.
Like the bathroom, RV kitchens can also experience extreme clutter, thanks to all the food and cooking implements required. Fortunately, one of the best ways to organize these is to use cabinet organizers and drawer dividers to sort everything out. These make it easier to find what you need and prevent things from sliding around while you’re driving.
You can also use racks and hooks in the kitchen for baskets, spices, and so on. Collapsible or “nestable” storage is also an excellent idea, so you can file away your storage items once you no longer need them, freeing up even more space.
Lastly, you might consider getting under-bench storage in your living area. Multifunctional furniture can reduce general clutter and also double as a coffee table or chest. Ottomans also provide the same function, neatly removing mess from your space.
