Stackable Coffee Mugs with Wire Rack

Are you unhappy with your current set of coffee cups? The set shown above comes with 4 of the 15-ounce cups plus that cool vertical wire storage rack.

The stand is almost 13-inches tall, and you load the mugs from the top, so you’d need to put this in a fairly tall RV kitchen cabinet to be able to access the cups easily.

You’ll want to tape or screw the bottom of the wire rack to the cabinet so it doesn’t slide around during travel days.

(Note: I used to have a different wire coffee cup stacker on here, but it doesn’t appear to be available anymore.

Spice Gripper Cupboard Organizer

Bellemain Spice Gripper Clip Strips for Plastic Jars - Set of 3, Holds 12 Jars

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 or…

…what a lot of RV owners will do is screw things into the sidewall of their wooden kitchen cabinets. (So they know they’re hitting wood, and only wood.)

(Note: I used to have a wall organizer listed here that was silver, but I can’t find that one on Amazon anymore so I’ve added this similar black one..)

RV Picnic Table Cloth

Bowery Direcsource Ltd Camping Tablecloth, Camping Trails

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 wipeable so it should hold up to lots of picnics and beer spills.

Do you want to keep your table cloth in place??

Alamic Tablecloth Clips, Picnic Table Clips, Table Cloth Cover Clamp for Picnic Tables Stainless Steel Picnic Table Cloth Holders Table Cover Clips Clamps - 12 Pack

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.

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, you can check this one out on Amazon. (They claim it’s suitable for inside or outdoor use.)

Office Star Resin Multipurpose Rectangle Table, 4-Feet Long, Height Adjustable, Center Folding Table

Picnic Blanket / Camping Quilt

SORISON Large, Ultra Warm, Puffy Camping Blanket, Hammock Top Quilt and Stadium Blanket for Cold Weather, Weatherproof, Down Alternative

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”)

Drive Auto Trunk Organizers and Storage - Collapsible Multi-Compartment Car Organizer w/ Adjustable Straps - Automotive Consoles & Organizers (Gray)

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.

Check current price of this popular organizer.

RV Sewer Hose Support

Camco 20 Ft (43051) Sidewinder RV Sewer Hose Support, Made From Sturdy Lightweight Plastic, Won't Creep Closed, Holds Hoses in Place - No Need for Straps

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.

If you want some support for your RV sewer hose, check out this Camco Sidewinder.

Sani-Dump Portable Tank ( aka RV Honey Pot)

Camco Rhino Heavy Duty 21 Gallon Portable Waste Holding Hose and Accessories-Durable Leak Free and Odorless RV Tote Tank (39002)

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 the popular, portable sani-dump from Camco.

It can actually hook up to a truck or golf cart, or you manually move it yourself to the sanidump.

If you want to try something like this – instead of having to pack up camp each time – you can click here to see more information.

Laundry Basket or Plastic Bin under the Awning for Dirty Shoes

RV Hack. You put a laundry basket next to the stairs and toss your dirty shoes in there.
Easy RV Hack – Laundry basket by the stairs for muddy 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.

No, this won’t work for everyone. If you have snakes, scorpions, spiders, etc… where you camp, you may want to put the basket inside or find another shoe storage solution.

2 thoughts on “RV Organization Hacks and Organizers (to tidy your RV)”

    1. Great question! I guess the first thing would be trying to figure out what is rattling. Some friends of mine cut up pieces of a foam pool noodle and used them to wedge between dishes and the edge of the cupboards to stop rattling. Another option could be used bubble envelopes…they are the envelopes that have the “bubble wrap” inside them. I know when I worked in a pharmacy we always had extra bubble envelopes because some medicine was shipped in them daily. Perhaps your local pharmacy has some they could give to you? I hope this helps, and if you have a particular item or items that you have in mind that are rattling perhaps you can reply and I’ll let other readers comment. Thanks again for taking the time to comment.
