RV Organization Hacks and RV Storage Ideas
Living in, or travelling extensively in your RV can be very enticing! But the practical side of dealing with the small space can be a headache! These RV storage ideas should help. I have separated them into sections for your RV kitchen, RV bedroom, RV bathroom and outside your RV too.
RV Kitchen Organizers and Small Kitchen Storage Ideas
Do you love Pinterest?
Stove-top Cover for Extra Space
A stove top cover can give you some much-needed extra surface area. Then once you’ve prepped all your favorite camping recipes you can remove the wooden top and use your stove. Great idea to help make the most out of tiny RV kitchens.
Struggling with a cluttered RV? Check out our “Clutter Free RV” RV Organization Bundle.
Or if you’d rather take it for a “test drive” check out these FREE SAMPLE pages from the Bundle.
Camco and several other companies make sink covers so you can utilize that space for cooking, chopping, or storing items.
The wooden one displayed above is currently rated at 4.6 stars out of 5 on Amazon. Jeez, how suave does this look?
Camco also makes a plastic one called the Camco Sink Mate Cutting Board that you may be interested. (Here is the Amazon link to the plastic one.)
Fold-up/Fold-down Counter-top Extender
This extendable counter-top extender is made by Camco. If you want a little extra countertop, this may be the product for you. You can check it out on Amazon by clicking here.
RV Kitchen Cabinet Organizer
This wire rack allows you to vertically organize flat items like cookie sheets, cutting boards or cooling racks. You could also use it to organize your books or magazines too.
Kitchen Plate Stacker (Organizer)
These three-sided plate organizers keep your plates nicely stacked while traveling, or just daily living.
These organizers from Camco can be purchased from Amazon if you can’t find them at your local retailer. (And at Walmart.com)
Other Plate Stacker / Organizers
This wire organizer can help keep your plates nicely stacked (and safe). It is currently sitting at 4.9 out of 5 stars on Amazon with 27 reviews. If you want to get your dishes organized (and help stop rattling) then check out these organizers today.
Keep track of where you’ve been, and plan your next camping trip with this RV journal.
Coffee Cup Stacker
These coffee cup organizers help solve the problem of loose cups and mugs in your RV. They are currently rated at 4.5 stars out of 5 on Amazon.
Spice Gripper Cupboard Organizer
These organizing gripper strips are intended to hold spice bottles inside the cupboard door.
Some people on Amazon claim that if you buy a straight necked spice bottle they’ll slide down through these grips: a helpful reviewer said he rectified this by putting a thin strip of wood under the bottles to keep them in place.
If you want to view the Amazon listing you can view it here.

Nesting Bowls with Camper Design!
Are you kidding me? Look at how cool these things are!
Nesting bowls are a great way to maximize storage in a tight space, and these ones with the camper designs are perfect for your RV, or as a gift for fellow campers.
I’m not sure if you can find these cool bowls at your local retailer, but if you can’t, here is a link to Amazon.
Collapsible Bowls with Lids
The bowls below are cool because they collapse down for easy storage, but they also have lids so you can preserve and protect your food for longer.
More Wall Organizers
This wall organization unit has hooks to hold larger utensils, baskets, and a little shelf.
It does require some screwing though, so if you aren’t good with tools (or don’t have any) then maybe you’ll want to look for a “sticky” option.
If you’re frustrated by your messy, cluttered RV and you can’t find anything! Then check out our “Clutter Free RV” RV Organization Bundle and start organizing your RV today (with proper planning!).
If you want to try some FREE SAMPLE pages from the above Bundle, click the picture below and get started organizing your RV today.
RV Fridge Organizers
These spring-loaded, adjustable bars help keep your fridge items contained and organized.
If you want to see if Walmart has a better price, click the button below.
Shelf Brace –> Keeps Food Items from Shifting
I didn’t even know these things existed. But they are such a smart idea. They secure to your fridge shelves to help keep spillable items in place during traveling.
The ones shown above are by a company called Camco.
RV Bedroom Organization and Storage
Here is a section of RV organization ideas that may help you get your RV bedroom more organized (like your clothes, blankets and bedding).
Storage Bags for Clothes and Blankets
This breathable bag holds your blankets or clothes and its see-through window allows you to recognize what is in there immediately: no need to haul everything to see if your favorite Broncos shirt is in there!
Here are some more foldable, storage bag options.
**And do you need to new sheets for your RV bedroom? These sheets from Mellanni (brushed microfibre shown below) have an incredible 45,000+ reviews on Amazon. And a solid 4.4 stars out of 5. Crazy popular!!
Hanging Shoe Organizer
Even though these are called hanging shoe organizers, they can be used to store many different items.
They are currently sitting at 4.6 stars out of 5 on Amazon.
So get ahead and get creative and see how you can make the most out of your unused space.
RV Bathroom Organization and Storage Products
Here are some RV organization ideas that should help you get your RV bathroom neat and tidy.
Maximize wall space (think vertical) with this toiletry holder
This wall organizer by iHave claims that it can be mounted without nailing or screwing.
It will help keep your toiletries off the sink counter ( we all know how tight the space is there).
You can check out the product on Amazon by clicking here. It is currently rated at 4.4 stars out of 5.
Stainless Steel Wall Toothbrush holder
Not everyone likes white plastic.
The holder above is a stainless steel toothbrush holder than sticks your wall (or inside shower) using a strong 3M adhesive.
It currently only as 7 reviews on Amazon, but verified purchasers state it sticks as well as they claim.
Check out the Amazon listing here if you like the look of this bathroom organizer.
Increase your Shower Space by using a new Shower Rod
A new curved shower rod, like the one shown above, can help increase the size of your shower space and give you some much needed “elbow room.”
There are a few different ones on the market, but the one above (by Stromber) is marketed for the RV’ing crowd.
Most of the reviews on Amazon are positive, but one reviewer mentioned the price was a little too high. (I’ll let you decide that for yourself 🙂
Bathroom Organizer – Hangs on dry side of Shower Curtain
This mesh organizer hangs from your shower curtain and helps you make the most out of the vertical space in your bathroom.
You don’t need to clutter up your bathroom sink counter-top anymore.
It is currently rated 4.6 stars out of 5 on Amazon.
RV Cleaning and Tidying Products
Once you organize your RV, you’ll want to keep it clean. These products should help with that.
Some people just don’t have space in their RV or trailer to have a full size broom.
That is why Camco has created this compact broom to not only clean, but also store it in tight spaces.
Handheld, Cordless Vacuum
We have this cordless vacuum from Black & Decker and it works well. It is great for little piles of dirt or hair. It charges uses 120V outlet so you may want to take that into consideration.
It is well-rated with LOTS of reviews on Amazon.
RV Outdoor Space
When the weather is beautiful we want to spend more time outside. Make the most of space outside your RV by using the following products or ideas.
Outdoor Mat (with Carrying Bag)
Ok, technically this isn’t an RV organization hack or storage tip, but having a mat like this can really help set up your outdoor area.
If you like this one above you can check out this mat’s Amazon listing by clicking here.
It is currently sitting an impressive 4.4 stars out of 5, and it claims you can easily sweep off most messes from the surface.
Plus, having a mat like this will help keep the dirt outside and not inside your beautiful RV.
If you need to help secure the mat to the ground, below are some ground pegs to get the job done.
Do you want another outdoor mat option or don’t like they styling of the above mat? Then check this one out. It sums up RV’ers perfectly!
If clicking the picture doesn’t get you to the Amazon listing you can click here.
This mat shown below isn’t a storage idea, but it’ll sure add “curb appeal” to your RV.
It’s such a cute outdoor mat. It is from Etsy and you can personalize it to put your family name on there.

RV Picnic Table Cloth
How cute is this thing?
Imagine your camping parties hanging out around the campfire and serving up your favorite food on this cool picnic table cloth.
Once again, this isn’t directly an RV storage or organization idea, but having an easy to use table cloth will allow you to enjoy the great Outdoors and make better use of your outdoor space.
I generally try to minimize plastic usage, but this PVC table cover is easily wipable so it should hold up to lots of picnics and beer spills.
Need a Table to Put your new Table Cloth on?
When my parents had their RV they had a folding table similar to the one shown below.
Then when they moved on to the next campsite they would simply fold it up and store it inside.
You can find folding tables at many retailers, but if you can’t find the one you want, the one listed above is currently sitting at 4.3 out of 5 stars on Amazon.
Do you want to keep your table cloth in place??
Picnic Blanket / Camping Quilt
There is nothing quite like having a beautiful picnic on a warm and sunny day. This super-big camping quilt from Sorison makes a good picnic blanket because it is easy to clean and water repellent.
And if you’re lucky enough to camp near a sandy beach, you can shake the sand off the blanket without it sticking. And in the evening when the temperature dips, you can wrap it around yourself (and your partner) to stay extra warm.
Trunk Organizer (used in the RV “basement”)
I know this is listed as a trunk organizer, and intended for cars and SUV’s, but I think it would work well in an under-RV storage compartment. You could slide it in and out to access your tools, sporting goods or picnic supplies.
Clicking the picture above will give you additional information on Amazon.
RV Sewer Hose Support
It may not be something we like to talk about or do, but cleaning out the waste water holding tanks of an RV is very important. This support hose simplifies the process, and it folds up small for easy storage.
Just make sure you check out the “Make Sure it Fits” section along the top of the Amazon listing.
Sani-Dump Portable Tank ( aka Honey Pot)
How many fights have you had with your spouse when you’re backing up the trailer or setting up camp?
Then when the waste tank gets full you gotta pull out, drive to the sani-dump and then set up camp all over again.
It can be a total hassle.
That was the situation my sister was in – well maybe not the arguing with her husband – but they’d paid for a campsite for the season and got it all set up. But they didn’t want to pack everything in to go dump the waste.
That’s when she discovered these things. I think calling these things honey pots is the worst nickname ever…but anyway. They are convenient.
The one shown above is highly rated portable sani-dump from Camco.
It can actually hook up to a truck or golf cart, or you manually move it yourself to the sani-dump.
If you want to try something like this – instead of having to pack up camp each time – you can click the image above to check out some reviews on Amazon. They aren’t the cheapest things on the market but you’ll probably find the convenience worth it.
And Walmart.com usually carries the 21-gallon size.
Laundry Basket or Plastic Bin under the Awning for Dirty Shoes
I learned this RV organization hack from my sister.
When her kids were younger they would get their muddy footprints inside the RV.
And even if they took their shoes off at the door the space inside the doorway definitely became a “mud room.”
To avoid this mess she started putting a plastic basket under the RV right next to the door. The kids could kick off their shoes on the step and toss them into the basket.
