Enjoy the list of RV Organization Ideas

I have separated the ideas into the broad categories of RV Bathroom organization, RV kitchen and then RV bedroom organization ideas.

RV Bathroom Organization Ideas

We’ll start with organizing the RV bathroom. This can be a tiny space, and whether you have a wet or dry RV bathroom will determine what storage solutions you can and can’t use.

1.Hanging Mesh Shower Curtain Organizer

MISSLO Mesh Shower Organizer Hanging 15 Pockets Over the Door Bathroom Storage, Extra Large Capacity for Toiletry Accessories, White

This is a large, 15-pocket mesh shower curtain organizer that you can hang from your shower curtain rod or from the back of your bathroom door. It is made of mesh so you can hang it on the wet side of the shower curtain. It is designed for the water to drip out and not pool in a pocket.

2. Wall-mounted Toothbrush Holder

iHave Toothbrush Holder Wall Mounted with Large Capacity, Easy Install, Durable, Kids Family Set Electric Toothbrush Holder for Bathroom (3Cups)

The counter-top space in your RV bathroom may be small to non-existent.

A wall-mounted toothbrush holder like this one will keep your toiletries off the counter yet still within easy reach.

If you have a wet RV bathroom just be careful what you store in here. (These things are very popular and RV’ers buy them up like crazy.)

Will this work for your family?

3. Waste basket – hangs over the cabinet door

iDesign Axis Steel Over the Cabinet Storage Basket Organizer, Waste Basket, for Aluminum Foil, Sandwich Bags, Cleaning Supplies, Garbage Bags, Bath Supplies, 7.1" x 12.2" x 14.2", Chrome

Sometimes you can squeeze a small garbage can next to your RV toilet, but if there isn’t room you could look for an option like this one.

4. Wall-mounted, or cabinet-mounted Vintage Metal Baskets

Spectrum Diversified Vintage Extra Large Cabinet & Wall-Mounted Basket for Storage & Organization Rustic Farmhouse Decor, Sturdy Steel Wire Storage Bin, Industrial Gray

These are incredibly versatile baskets. Campers put them in different rooms and they’ll have a completely different purpose. Some people mount these onto their wooden bathroom cabinets to hold face clothes, or extra toiletries.

5. Sliding Basket Organizer – great for inside a cabinet and “hard to reach” areas.

SimpleHouseware 2 Tier Sliding Cabinet Basket Organizer Drawer, Silver

Just imagine this basket filled with extra shampoo, soap bars, toilet paper, toilet cleaner, mouth wash and more, and then you’ll start to realize just how useful this could be under your bathroom sink.

6. Towel Rack styled like a wine bottle holder

mDesign Wall Mount Metal Wire Towel Storage Shelf Organizer Rack Holder with 6 Compartments, Shelves for Bathroom Towels - Chrome

These look cool. If you don’t want to screw into a wall, you could screw into your wood bathroom door (if you have a wood bathroom door). (Or maybe even use Command Hooks to hold this towel rack to your RV walls.)

7. Elegant Swing-out Towel Rack

KES swing out towel bar 3-arm version
KES Swinging 3-arm Towel Rack (Click pic to see on Walmart.com)

Here is another towel rack, but this one swings out from the wall. I think it is quite nice looking and can hold up to 3 towels. (It will require screwing it into a solid surface though…perhaps the side of a wooden cabinet?)

8. Toilet Paper Holder used as a Towel Holder

KES Toilet Paper Holder SUS304 Stainless Steel Wall Mount Brushed, A2175S12-2

I know this is designed to hold toilet paper, but just imagine it as a towel holder.

  • That is what some campers do.
  • It’ll do the trick and keep the towels from accumulating on the bathroom floor in wet mess.

This popular one from KES requires you to screw into the wall, but there are other options out there that use an adhesive. (But you’d need a strong adhesive to hold up a wet bath towel.)

9. Paper Towel Holder used to Store Toilet Paper

In the above example we looked at a toilet paper holder used to store something else (towels), and here we are looking at something else (paper towel holder) used to store toilet paper.

Feels like backwards day or something. ๐Ÿ™‚

10. Command Hook Towel Holders

Nothing really fancy about this.

Just the leaders in adhesive holders making a towel holder – perfect for the RV bathroom when you don’t want to screw anything into the walls.

11. Tension Bar Shelves

I was a bit surprised when I first put this picture on Pinterest.

The pin really took off and people really seemed to like the simplicity of this RV bathroom storage idea.

And no tools required, and no drilling into your walls.

DIY RV organization hack that you can do with no tools. It is a tension bar shelf with baskets set on top. It can work well as a rv bathroom storage idea.
Tension bar shelves

And check out the baskets…nice and tidy. The tension bars allow you to make your own RV shelves without screwing into the walls.

This option is best for seasonal sites or other RV’s where they don’t move very often. Just remember to take the baskets off the shelves on travel days. (Set them on the floor when you’re driving.)

An RV storage hack is to put two tension bars between two close walls or cabinets in your RV (such as above the toilet), and then place baskets onto the tension bar shelf.
A tension bar shelf is a great no-drill RV storage hack

12. Seagrass Baskets

If you don’t already have baskets you could get some seagrass baskets like the ones shown below.

You could store your extra toilet paper or towels in one and then set it on your tension bar shelf. (I realize you won’t have counter-space but make your own tension bar RV shelves.)

13. Hanging Shower Caddy

MISSLO Shower Caddy Organizer 5 Pockets Roll up Hanging Bathroom Accessories Storage for Camper, RV, Gym, Cruise, Cabin, College Dorm Shower, Small

This one can hang right from the shower head itself, or from the shower door or rod.

And it can be rolled up and brought with you to the campground’s shower facilities.

If you don’t want to hang it from your shower head, then you could adhere a strong command hook to the wall and hang it from that.

Make your entire shower curtain into an organizer!

Maytex Quick Dry Mesh Pockets Waterproof PEVA Shower Curtain or Liner, Bath / Shower Organizer, Clear, 70 inches x 72 inches

With this 9-pocket shower curtain by Maytex, your shower curtain becomes the organizer. Such a cool idea.

Do you have a shower curtain in your RV?

Will this work to help you organize your RV bathroom?

14. Shower Soap, Shampoo & Conditioner Dispenser

Better Living Products, White 76354 Euro Series TRIO 3-Chamber Soap and Shower Dispenser, Eliminates shower bottle clutter and container lifts off.., By Visit the Better Living Store

Leave the bulky shampoo and conditioner bottles at home.

No need to pack them with you when you have this dispenser.

Just fill up the soap chambers before you set out on your voyage and you won’t have to trip over shampoo bottles on your shower floor anymore. It adheres to walls…not screwed.

These things sell really well…but will it work for you??

15. Shower Shelf

16. Shower Organizing Kit (nice Chrome look shelves and hooks)

If you want to take it a step beyond just having one shower shelf, you can look into getting an entire set like this one. This set uses suction cups – not adhesive – to stick to shower walls.

The picture above shows the large shelf “in action.” Will this work on your shower walls though?

17. Over-Door-Organizer for Personal Items and Bathroom Products

Even though these products are often marketed as hanging shoe organizers, they are very useful and handy for other purposes.

You could hang it over the door, or on the dry side of the shower curtain. They are one of the best camper organization ideas because you can also cut them to suit your needs.

Hanging pocket organizers (aka hanging shoe organizers) are a very versatile way to add storage to the back of a door...such as in your RV bathroom

Travel Size Accessories like a folding Portable Hair Dryer

Some people live in their RV full-time or for months at a time. For people that spend a lot of time in their RV (and have to look presentable sometimes), a travel-sized hair dryer can help cut down on clutter in their small RV bathroom.

This small, folding hair dryer by BaBylissPRO is a popular, well-rated travel hair dryer.

18. Narrow Bathroom Garbage to go beside toilet

RV bathroom organization - narrow garbage can that should fit nicely into most RV bathrooms.

Most RV trash can ideas require you to have narrow garbage cans like the the small, narrow, foot-activated lid like the one shown above in my friend’s RV bathroom.

The garbage can in the picture above is by MainStays, which is available at Walmart.

Below is a link to a popular narrow bathroom garbage that would fit in most RV bathrooms (made by Umbra).

19. Over the Toilet Shelves (rustic look)

RHF Rustic Wall Shelf, Wood Wall Shelves, Hanging Shelf Organizer Rack, Decorative Floating Shelves for Living Room, Bathroom, Kitchen, Office - 2 Hooks 2-Tier (Brown)

If you are comfortable screwing into your RV walls then some hanging over-the-toilet shelves like this will provide you some nice additional organization space.

These are flat shelves, so they’d be better for stationary RVs or infrequent trips.

(If you are going to drive with these shelves, just take the items down before driving and put them all in a basket and stash them in your bathtub until you get to your destination.)

20. Tension Bar Inside the Shower to hang Wet towels and Toiletries

This idea is from a Tension Rod Organization ideas post I wrote. They are incredibly versatile organization items. (But if condensation is a problem in your RV you should try to hang wet clothes outside.)

21. DIY Toiletries Holder

This is a simple DIY RV storage idea made from an empty milk jug.

You can either hang it from your shower curtain, or from a second tension bar installed in your shower (like the one above).

I know I already showed a toothbrush holder above, but this one has a different look, and what is cool about this one is that it can be used on the countertop, or on the wall. So it is versatile.

Everyone has different preferences on how they want their RV bathroom to look.

RV Kitchen Organization Ideas

The next set of RV organization ideas are RV kitchen organization ideas.

24. Slide Out Organizer for under the RV kitchen Table

KOVIIOL Under Desk Drawer, Large Capacity Pop-Up Recycled Expandable Hiding Self Adhesive Stick On Secret Drawer For Desk Pencil Drawer Slide Out Organizer And Storage For Desktop 2 Pack

Stick one of these to the underside of kitchen table and you’ve got yourself a little “drop zone” for keys and phones and also a storage spot for playing cards and stationary. They are marketed as office supplies, but they work well for knick knacks.

25. Under-Cabinet Tray

Anything Keeper - Home, Office, RV, Kitchen and Boat Organizer (outside dims = 11"Wx10"Lx2.5"H; basket=10.25"x9"x2")

I know it’s hard to tell what this does by this picture, but it screws to the underside of an upper kitchen cabinets. Most RV’s have wooden cabinets so I know a lot of RV owners don’t mind screwing into the wooden cabinets to mount a storage idea like this one.

Here is another organization idea for keys, stationary and other small items.

Another cool looking spice rack. This is popular spice shelf that will also help clear up counter space.

29. Spice Rack Clip Strips (mount to inside of cabinet door)

SimpleHouseware Spice Gripper Clips Strips Cabinet Holder - 4 Strips, Holds 20 Jars, Black

Perhaps this is more what you’re looking for? You can mount it inside the door on your kitchen cabinets so the spices won’t be in view all the time. You clip the spice jars into the mounted strips. It mounts to the wall or inside a cabinet using 3M adhesive tape.

Click here to see more details of this spice rack on Amazon.

30. Food Wrap Organizer (mount inside kitchen cabinet door)

Home Basics Organizer Rust Resistant, Perfect for Food Storage, Silver Foil, Wax Paper, Sandwich Bags, Plastic Wrap-Mounts

I recently discovered this food wrap organizer on Amazon. Looks cool. It has the little “pockets” for each type of food wrap that you may use. You can screw it to inside a kitchen cabinet door, or you can mount it to a wall. (It does require screwing though.)

Here is another ‘over the door’ organizer you may like, but this one just hangs from the cabinet door…not screwing needed.

31. Beeswax Wraps – Sustainable, less plastic RV’ing

Beeโ€™s Wrap โ€“ Assorted Set of 3 โ€“ Certified B Corporation โ€“ No Synthetic Wax or Chemicals โ€“ Holds for Up to a Year โ€“ Sustainable and Reusable Beeswax Food Wraps with Jojoba Oil โ€“ 3 Sizes (S, M, L)

Just because you’re RV’ing or camping it doesn’t mean you have to leave you eco-friendly mindset at home.

You can use less plastic while cooking in your RV by using beeswax wraps to cover and store your food.

32. Corkboard mounted inside Cabinet door as Organization Center

Do you always have a pile of paper, notes and business cards tossed around your RV?

If so, this is a handy way to keep them organized.

Take a corkboard like the ones shown above, cut it to size of your cabinet, and then mount inside a kitchen cabinet door.

Then if you get a brochure, business card or write a note, you can stick the paper to the corkboard using a push pin.

33. Screw Jars to underside of Kitchen Cabinets

This can be a great way to store tea bags, sugar, spices, and other kitchen staples.

Clean out some empty food jars – baby food jars are a good size – and then screw the lids to the underside of your kitchen cabinets.

Then put your items into the glass jars and screw the jars onto the mounted lids.

It is a good way to keep things off the kitchen counter.

34. Nesting Bowls

Joseph Joseph Nest 9 Nesting Bowls Set with Mixing Bowls Measuring Cups Sieve Colander, 9-Piece, Multicolored

Nesting bowls like this are a nice, compact way to have multiple kitchen bowls without having them scattered throughout your kitchen cabinets. This is a popular, 9-piece set from Joseph Joseph. The photo above shows what is included in the set and the photo below shows them nicely nested together.

35. Dish Drying Rack (in the sink)

A dish drying rack like this one from Camco sits in your RV sink. It is a good way to help keep your counter-top clear and usable. (But if you do want to set it on the counter, it comes with a drip tray.)

We use one in our pop up camper, and what I like about it is how portable it is. If the campground we’re staying at has a dishwashing station I can bring this along and use it to hold the cleaned and rinsed dishes. (And I can even let the dishes dry outside if I want.)

Will this work for you?

Click here to see more details on Amazon.

36. Paper Plate Dispenser

37. Adjust Cutlery Tray for Kitchen Cabinet

Your RV’s cutlery drawer may not be the same width as your friend’s RV.

But this company (OXO) has thought of that and they make an adjust cutlery tray. So you can adjust it to suit your needs and have a nice organized cutlery drawer. It can extend from 9.75″ wide to 16.25″ wide.

Whether it stays organized is up to you. ๐Ÿ™‚ The photo above shows it pushed together (contracted), and the picture below shows it extended to fit a larger drawer.

38. Instant Pot Duo (7 in 1) – 6qt

Instant Pot 7-in-1 pressure cooker 6-quart size
Instant Pot 7-in1 6quart size pressure cooker (Click pic to see details on Walmart.com)

How is this an organization item?

Well, it’s more of a decluttering item.

Because an Instant Pot can replace several small kitchen appliances, and it even has a sautรฉ function so you could even leave most of your fry pans at home too. It has lots of functions that may seem overwhelming at first, but read the instruction manual, get a descriptive Instant Pot recipe book and you’ll be on your way.

I read that one full-time RV’er who works at “Trailer Life” magazine also highly recommends mulitcookers (like the Instant Pot) for RV kitchens.

39. Vertical Knife Holder (the Knife Safe)

Camco Knife Safe - Securely Mounts on Wood or Metal Surfaces, Holds 7 Cooking and Carving Knives, Organize and Store Knives While Creating Space - (9" x 11") Beige (43583)

Screw this knife holder to your kitchen wall, or to the inside of a wooden kitchen cabinet, and you’ll always have your blades within reach. You can get it in different colors too if you don’t like beige.

40. Sliding Drawers for Under the Kitchen Sink Cabinet

Simple Houseware Stackable 2 Tier Sliding Basket Organizer Drawer, Silver

A unit like this could help you organize under the kitchen sink cabinet (if it’ll fit).

There is a top shelf to store items, and two sliding drawers. It could a good place to keep your cleaning supplies. The smaller drawer could fit cleaning sponges, bar soaps, and more small items.

It would also make convenient sliding shelves for your RV pantry.

If you want to see the size of this unit, click here.

41. Plastic Bins – Simple RV Cabinet Storage Idea

Here is a simple RV organization idea that my friends use. They have some plastic bins that they place inside their RV kitchen cabinets.

You can store “like” items together and then just pull the whole bin out for easy access. Because they’re cheap and easy to get, it makes plastic bins one of the best camper organization ideas.

Plastic bins are a good RV storage idea - and they're cheap too.

Reuse Old Plastic Containers

42. Vertical Organizer for RV Kitchen Items (by YouCopia)

YouCopia StoreMore Rack Expandable Cookware organizer, White

Having pans and other cookware stacked on top of each other can be a hassle to access the one your want.

And depending on the cookware you have, stacking them may damage their surface. A vertical organizer like this one solves both those problems and makes a great RV kitchen cabinet organizer.

It allows you to easily pull out the item you want, and it helps prevent scratching.

This is there “expandable” model. They also make a standard, non-expanding model.

43. Plate Stackers to keep your Plates stationary (Camco Stack-A-Plate 43601)

Camco Stack-A-Plate- Easily Organize, Store and Protect Plates During Travel, Non- Slip Backing, Simply Dispense Plates During Later Use, Great For RVs - White (43601)

Many RV’ers wonder about RV dishes storage: they want to know how to store and protect their dishes.

You could get plastic dishes but if you want regular dishes check out this Camco Stack-A-Plate.

These look like a clever idea to keep your plates stationary in the cabinet during travel days. I wonder if it would help minimize rattle during travel?

I guess you could tuck a cloth rag between the plates and the plastic stacker to further minimize vibration.

(For more RV dish storage ideas click here to see my article on this topic.)

44. RV Fridge Bar

Camco 28" Double RV Refrigerator Bar, Holds Food and Drinks in Place During Travel, Prevents Messy Spills, Spring Loaded and Extends Between 16" and 28" - White (44073)

The word “RV fridge bar” may sound like you’re converting your fridge into the liquor cabinet (bar), but what I’m referring to is this product that stops your food from shuffling around during travel. Pretty clever.

(And people use these tension bars for other things too…like orienting it vertically to organize a kitchen cabinet!)

Click the picture above to see more details on Amazon.

45. Stove top Wooden Cover (The “Silent Top”)

Camco 43526-A Silent Top Stovetop Cover, Convert Your Stove Top to Extra Counter Space In Your Camper Or RV (Bordeaux Finish)

You can lay this on top of your stove, cut all your veggies (when you use the cutting pad with it), prep your meal, then remove it when you need to access your burners. It is a clever way to increase counter-top space (and we know that can be lacking in an RV!).

  • Plus, this one has “silencing feet” that are intended to help quiet the rattle of RV stove tops.

46. Sink Cover Cutting Board

Camco Sink Mate Cutting Board - Designed For RV, Camper, and Trailer Kitchen Sinks- Create More Counter Space, Cut Corner for Scrap Release, Sturdy Design- White (43857)

Here is an other good way to add more counter-top space to your small RV kitchen.

You place this cutting board over one of your sinks. It even has a small cutaway hole to drop the food scraps into the sink for later cleanup. Many RV’s already have sink covers, but if yours doesn’t, check this popular one out.

This isn’t the same cutting board, but in the picture below you’ll see my friends trailer and how they maximize counter space by using a cutting board/cover over top of their sink.

An RV sink cover like this acts as a cutting board and a way to maximize space in a small RV kitchen.

47. Mini Pantry Organizing Shelf

Simple Houseware Stackable Can Rack Organizer, Bronze

A lot of the RV kitchen organization ideas so far have been about organizing cookware, but what about organizing food in your RV pantry?

Well here is a mini pantry shelf from Simple Houseware that you could use to store canned goods inside a kitchen cabinet. If it’ll fit in your RV, it makes a good RV pantry storage idea.

48. Wire Shelf inside Kitchen Cabinet for Food storage

Organize RV pantry by using a wire rack shelf to provide multiple spots to place food. Just one of the good RV pantry storage ideas.

Will a lazy susan help you organize your RV kitchen?

51. Slide-out Cabinet Organizer

Lynk Professional Organizer Pull Out Under Cabinet Sliding Shelf, 11" W x 21" D, Chrome

I know these are very popular with new kitchens in houses. But I’m not sure if they’ll fit in your RV kitchen cabinet. Measure carefully, and read product descriptions thoroughly before ordering.

This one above is made by Lynk Professional. (They make quality stuff.) It is 11-inches wide, but you can get them in various widths and depths.

If this does fit then you’ll have way easier access to pots and pans. Just slide them out – instead of getting on your hands and knees trying to reach the back of the cabinet. If they’ll fit in your RV, they’ll make great RV kitchen cabinet organizers.

I wonder if it would hold soup cans too?

RV Bedroom Organization Ideas

Here are some RV bedroom organization ideas to help you get your RV bedroom tidy and manageable.

53. Hanging Shelves for the Closet (perfect for sweaters and bedding)

GRANNY SAYS Two 3-Shelf Hanging Closet Organizers, Collapsible Closet Hanging Shelves, Nursery Hanging Organizers, Fog Gray, 23.6" H X 12.2" W X 12.2" D

Sweaters just don’t hang well: they get all droopy and weird looking.

A hanging shelf like the one shown above can avoid that. If it’ll fit in your closet.

Not all RV closets are full height, so make sure you measure yours, both width and height before committing to a hanging shelf. (You could always cut off a bottom shelf if you had to.) But if it’ll fit in your camper, then you’ll have RV shelves ready to use.

Click here to see more details of these hanging shelves made by “Granny Says”.

54. Hanging Organizer with Pockets (two-sided!)

Hanging pocket organizers – sometimes called hanging shoe organizers – are very versatile storage items.

(In fact, I wrote a whole blog post on awesome ways you can use a hanging shoe organizer.)

What is particularly cool about this one, is that it is doubly space-saving because it is two-sided!

Will it fit in your RV closet?

Sorbus Storage Bins Boxes, Foldable Stackable Container Organizer Set with Large Clear Window & Carry Handles, Bedroom Closet Organization for Bedding, Linen, Clothes (Gray)

Not much use organizing your RV if you don’t know where to find anything!

56. Wire Mesh Cubes for the Closet (or could even screw to the wall)

RV Bedroom Organization Ideas

I like how you can make these cubes into a variety of structures: low and wide or tall and narrow.

Heck you could build a little tower of cubes right in your RV closet!

57. Plastic Bins for Socks, underwear, accessories, etc…

RV Bedroom organization idea using plastic bins to hold small clothing items like socks and underwear.
Plastic bins as clothes organizers for your RV may be Ugly, but it works.

And that is what small plastic storage bins like the ones above offer you: functionality.

Are you going to brag to your fellow campers about how awesome your plastic bin is? I doubt it. But who cares. It works.

With a bedside organizer like this, all your books, glasses, etc… will be within easy reach. If you hear a sound in the night and you need to check it out, well you’ll know where to immediately reach for your glasses.

Bedside caddies are one of the best camper organization ideas for your RV bedroom. This particular one by T-SIGN has multiple ways to attach it to your bed.

I first saw organizers like this in an RV Organization Facebook group I’m in. I thought it was as great idea and looked good too.

The one shown above (made by HomRing) is quite small (you can tell by how glasses hanging from the pocket), but it should hold some of your RV bedroom essentials for you.

If you don’t want to screw into your walls you could use a command hook – and then just don’t overload it.

61. Magnetic Strips or Velcro on Back of Remote Control

If you don’t have a TV in your bedroom, don’t worry you can use this tip in your RV’s living room area.

Frequently Asked Questions about RV Organization and RV Storage Ideas

How do I maximize my RV space?

Tips on how to maximize space in your RV include:

  • Think vertical – use wall space and stack items when appropriate
  • Declutter – get rid of unneeded items –> Pack what you need and need what you pack
  • Get items that have more than one use (think along the lines of a Swiss Army knife, multi-tool or even an Instant Pot)
  • Use “dead” space – like behind doors and inside cabinet doors
  • Use bins or baskets inside cabinets – easier to pull out one bin than trying to maneuver one medicine bottle from the back of the cabinet
  • Add sliding shelves under the table or under upper kitchen cabinets
  • Have a dedicated spot for everything – know where everything goes and PUT IT BACK

What is the best thing to keep items from moving in cupboards in my RV?

You can buy anti-slip shelf liners at the dollar store and line your RV cupboards. If you want to stop your RV dishes from breaking you could either buy some plastic dishes, metal camping dishes, or you can look at buying RV-specific dish storage devices like the Camco Stack-A-Plate.

  1. Great tips. I was unable to get to the amazon website for the black under cabinet tray (in the kitchen tips). I also did multiple searches on Amazon with no luck finding it.

  2. Love the idea of the remote caddy on the side of the bed. I accidentally put my new iPhone on the mattress close to the head of the bed and it slipped between the mattress and wall, WAY DOWN into an (nearly) unreachable cavity at the very front of our 5th wheel. We could SEE it but not REACH IT – luckily we were able to send our grand-daughter into the little cubby right next to the bed and hubby, (with a long rod) was able to scooch the phone towards her and she could stick her tiny arm in there and retrieve it! PHEW!

    1. Oh no! Another great reason to have grandkids ๐Ÿ˜. Iโ€™m glad you got your phone back. That would be tough seeing it but not being able to easily reach it. Thank you Virginia ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

      1. I cut up the anti-slip shelf liners from the dollar store to put between my plates and bowls. They donโ€™t shift at all.

    Love all the ideas….but how can we utilize the space in the “basement”? We have so much wasted space, but not sure what to do? Any thoughts???

    1. Hi Monique, I’ve seen people that install slide-out drawers in their RV basement. They’re heavy-duty so they hold lots of stuff. Plus, other campers utilize plastic bins or totes or milk crates. You could try mounting some peg boards along the walls of your RV basement to store tools (and then bungee cord them).
      Hope this helps. ๐Ÿ™‚
