How to Stay Organized in Your RV in 5 Easy Tips

When planning for a family RV camping, do you ever feel like you have more stuff than your space can handle? Even though most RVs are comfortable, space still comes at a premium.

With the limited space, it can be difficult to fit your clothes, camp chairs, food, and other camping items in the RV. This is besides providing adequate living space for your family and pets.

If you face such problems, then you’re not alone. Even campers with large RVs struggle with the limited RV living space.

Rest assured, you can make your family camping trips comfortable and spacious with just a few RV organization tips.

5 RV Organizational Tips for Your Next Camping Trip 

Whatever the type of RV you have, here are five organization tips for your RV.

1. Use the “One In, One Out” Rule

Whenever you bring a new item in the RV, an old similar item must go. This rule will help you to prioritize the true RV experience over having a crowded RV space. It’ll also allow you to have more modern and efficient items in your RV.

2. Use Suitable Camping Household Items

First off, you’re in a home that moves, so ensure the items you take with you are designed for such a space. Don’t try to force things to fit the space.

In addition to having specially designed items and RV accessories, make sure you do away with the unnecessary items. Always have a list of your items in the RV and go over the list to narrow down the things you don’t really use. This is where you suppress your hoarding demons and be honest with yourself.

3. Stick to a Cleaning Schedule

There isn’t a lot of surface area in your RV for clutter to collect, but you’ll be surprised by how quickly the rig gets filled up. It can be tempting to put off daily cleaning after a long day of fun camping activities. However, this is how clutter accumulates. Try to make it a daily habit to do a quick wipe-down and put everything in its right place to avoid drowning in clutter.

4. Label the Storage Bins

While this may sound like a tedious task, labeling can be an excellent stress-reliever and timesaver when you’re on the road. Pack items like camping gear, utensils, clothing, kid’s toys, and swimming gear in large separate storage bins and clearly label each bin. This ensures quick retrieval of your items whenever you need them and prevents cluttering.

5. Go Multi-Functional

To save space and stay organized, use multi-functional RV appliances and furniture. For example, you can choose couches or chairs with storage under their cushions. You can also invest in under-bed storage and cast iron pans that can be used inside the RV and on the campfire.
