10 Ways to Optimize The Limited Space in Your RV
Although we love our RVs, we have to admit that it can get frustrating at times living in such a small space. The key to living comfortably in your trailer is to maximize the space available. Below, we have listed some effective ways to optimize the limited space in your motorhome!
1. Heavy Duty Hangers
Optimize your closet space by hanging both pants and tops on the same hanger! Keep in mind, however, that most hangers are not strong enough to support all that weight, which is why you need a heavy-duty hanger like the Lynx Stay-Put Hanger. The hanger is sturdy enough to support the weight of more than one clothing item, and it is also designed to clip on the closet rod to prevent it from falling. This feature makes it ideal for those traveling in their RV because even if the road gets bumpy, the hangers won’t fall off the rods and you’ll avoid cluttering your closet.
Ottomans serve three purposes– Not only are they a great piece of furniture, but they also act as storage space and a stepping stool! Ottomans are perfect for anyone who needs the extra storage space, but also wants a cute piece of furniture to spice up their RV living space.
3. Compact Trash Can
Every RVer knows how small RV bathrooms can be. So small, in fact, that it can be hard to even find space for a garbage can. Compact trash cans are a great alternative to a regular garbage can as they will fit perfectly in tight spaces. The one shown below even has a hidden toilet brush holder!
4. Compact water bottle
Although compact water bottles won’t necessarily maximize the space in your motorhome, they will certainly maximize the space in your bags! This will be especially useful if you tend to go on hikes or day trips while on your RV trips. Additionally, compact water bottles are much easier to store and take up significantly less space.
5. Compact Kitchen Appliances
If you’re a full-time RVer or someone who enjoys making meals from scratch on your camping trips, compact kitchen appliances are a must-have for you! We’ve included a list of kitchen appliances that are useful and compact:
Additionally, if you travel with your family and have quite a few utensils to carry with you, we suggest buying a compact utensil organizer.
6. Hanging Baskets
Whether you use them in your cupboards, under your dining table or behind a door, hanging baskets are always super useful for maximizing your space! There are various types of hanging baskets that you can purchase, there’s some that hang on doors and those that hook on a ledge, like a shelf or dining table.
7. All-in-one Wall-Mount Organizer
This organizer has wall hooks, a book rack, and a shelf… What more could you ask for?! This organizer is great for those items that are usually laying around, cluttering your RV. This could be the designated place for your keys, outdoor jackets, magazines, bug spray and more!
8. Shoe Organizer
I don't know about you, but there is nothing that clutters my entry way more than having everyone’s shoes laying around. This is even more frustrating in an RV where space is already limited. The solution? A shoe organizer! One that can be hung behind a door will be ideal for a motorhome.
9. Desk Organizer
We know that there’s a lot of nomads out there that work remotely from their RV. To keep your work space tidy and organized, we suggest using a desk organizer like the one shown below!
10. Plastic Food Containers
Dry food packaging can often be quite bulky, which is why plastic containers are perfect to store dry food like cereal, crackers, rice and pasta. The plastic containers shown below fit perfectly into each other which allows you to maximize your cupboard space.
