If you’re packing up your RV and heading out on the road this year and your destination is an RV park in Dallas, TX or anywhere else in the country, you’re probably going through your usual struggle with organizing your RV space. No matter how much you pare down, you probably still don’t have enough room for all of the critical items you need for an extended trip. Making lists of things you need in order of importance is a great way to start the organizing process. After that, here are some tips for making maximum use of the space you have inside your RV:
- Nest as many things as possible. Buying cookware that has pieces that can be nested inside each other will save space in the kitchen. For serving and storage, consider using collapsible plasticware that takes up two-thirds less space than regular plasticware. Never let a container be stored empty – it can always hold something.
- Take advantage of vertical storage. Hanging shoe organizers work well for storing everything from towels to kitchen utensils They can be hung from rods inside narrow cabinets or attached to walls and inside cabinet doors to hold toiletries, magazines, tools and other miscellaneous supplies.
- Take advantage of horizontal storage. Install low-profile slide-out drawers under tables and desks to store writing supplies, phone chargers and small hand tools. For pre-existing drawers under couches and beds, look for dividers that can keep clothing neatly stacked and separated.
- Store dry goods in plastic bins. You’ll save more space when you move dry goods like cereal, sugar, etc. from their original packaging into stacking, plastic bins that will fit more easily into cabinets.
- Use repositionable hooks wherever possible. Repositionable hooks are a boon to RVers because they don’t require screws that can deface walls and cabinets and they’re sturdy. Use hooks to hang kitchen utensils next to the stove, to hang storage pods inside cabinet doors and to hang hats, flashlights, umbrellas and leashes near the door. With the wide variety of repositionable hooks available, there’s almost no limit to their usefulness inside your RV
- Use Velcro liberally. It sometimes seems like Velcro was invented to make RV life easier. You can use flat Velcro strips to keep your remote controls in place and in one central location. They can also be used to stick first aid kits, fire extinguishers and other emergency items to walls. Velcro straps come in handy when you need to keep hoses and electrical cords from uncoiling. Once they’re secured, you can even attach them to the doors of your storage compartments so they’ll be easily accessible once you reach the RV park in Dallas, TX.
