With the invention of the RV came a new era of camping. Now people can enjoy the great outdoors during the day while enjoying the comfort of AC at night. But the RV has some flaws. It lacks space and whatever you store in it gets tossed around while you drive to your destination. So if you find yourself asking how you can make the most of the space you have while still maintaining some order and sanity, then you have come to the right place. We’ve pulled together the top RV living tips to help you streamline your RV living arrangements with order and ease.
RV Hacks for Better Road Trips
Looking for more space in your RV? Create a bed over your car seats. These folks made them with PVC pipes!
Store paper goods in your tiny kitchen inside a magazine file. Add velcro on the bottom and on the shelf to hold everything in place while you’re on the move!
A lawn chair carrier holds a sheet of plywood to create a makeshift table. This is perfect for those days when you just want to enjoy a meal outdoors or you need a little extra space.
Create a table lamp with just a headlamp and a gallon of water.
Attach your trash can to the inside of a cabinet door (affiliate) to keep it in place and out of sight.
Use velcro to hold your remote controls in place.
Install broom clips near the door to hold your flashlights. That way, you can grab one at a moment’s notice.
Hang your shower products from a curtain rod. No bending over to reach your products, and no worry about them falling over on the road.
RV Living Tips
PVC Pipe Toothbrush Holders are a nice alternative when you can’t leave your toothbrushes sitting out on the countertops. These are hung inside the cabinet door.
Turn closet racks into cabinet organizers for your canned food. You can see everything you have at a glace this way!
Hang your measuring spoons and cups on the back of a cabinet door. Super handy if your RV doesn’t have drawers in the kitchen area!
Install a rod between your cabinets (or attach it to the wall), and use s-hooks to hang your utensils.
Staple a piece of elastic on either side of your medicine cabinet to hold all your meds and toiletries in place.
Create space in your RV
A PVC shoe rack allows you to store shoes in a tight space, and storing them upright is a huge help allowing them to dry when you’ve been out on adventures all day.
These RV enthusiasts hacked their stairs! Each step now serves as valuable storage space for things like dog food.
Secure taller items in the bathroom or shower with a towel bar.
Install hooks under the cabinet to hold all your coffee mugs. Don’t worry — they’ll stay in place!
Use an old pair of jeans to create pockets for eating utensils. That sure is quieter than hearing them clack around in the drawers all day!
Make your seating pull double duty by serving as storage, too.
Don’t waste your time rummaging through drawers to find what you need. Don’t feel like you need to duck and cover when you open a cabinet door. Even if you only take a few of these suggestions, I promise it will make your trip much easier and enjoyable.
