If you have been traveling in your Camper, you know that space is tight with all the nick-nacks you need and bring. This is why you need to use every space there possibly is to be organized. The best RV Storage Ideas are always the simple ones, the ones you can easily apply in your own Camper.
Camper Storage Ideas are crucial, especially if you are traveling in a small Travel Trailer as I do. And I need to be organized, otherwise, I am losing it. Always looking for stuff or putting things from one side to the other side drives me crazy.
The best storage idea of course is when you only bring what you really need. Do not overload on clothes, shoes, or towels, rather do laundry once a week. Organize your Camper with these easy storage ideas, which make your life so much easier.
Take it easy and make a packing list, which will help you to keep track, of what you really need to bring. And you will know what is important on your next trip.

RV Kitchen Storage Ideas
RV Kitchen Storage Ideas
You don’t want to fall over your trash can all the time because it is standing in the way. So this is the best there is to have in a Camper, a hanging trash can.
Paper Towel Holder
Under kitchen cabinet towel holder:
For cereal, rice, nuts, or any dry foods which use a lot of storage space in their original packaging. Therefore get storage bins that fit exactly into a cabinet.
Stackable unbreakable dishes
Of course, everything you need to bring on dishes has to be stackable. This is the only way to save a lot of space. And do bring plastic or melamine dishes so they don’t brake. I also put liners in my dish cabinets, for safety while we are driving.
Stackable pots and pans
The same concept here, buy stackable pots and pans, bowls, glasses made out of acrylic or lightweight teflon.
And these come with removable handles
Don’t forget to check out all the must-haves and nice-to-haves before you go on a trip. This list is very helpful!
If you want to dry your towel and don’t know where to hang it, this might be a great option. Magnetic hooks. I am sure you find a metal on your rig outside, where you can hang your wet towel or bathing suit. It holds up to 25 lbs.
This is so cool, I just explored this additional drawer you can add underneath your dinette table and store cutlery or have the kids use it for their pens and pencils.
If you have crafty children or you like to store paper or magazines, here is another good idea for storing things underneath the table.
This hanging basket is so cool for storing fruits and vegetables in your kitchen or using it in the bathroom for towels or shampoo, and soap. Just hang it on the curtain rod and you have everything accessible.
Get yourself a cutting board (or make it yourself) and put it on top of your stove for additional counter space while preparing a meal. I have almost no counter space and this really helps.
This is a great idea to extend counterspace. Screw these collapsible holders on the end of your cabinets and put a large cutting board on top when you cook. This adds so much more space, especially if your kitchen is as small as mine. If you don’t need it anymore, just fold it down.
Suction Cup Hooks
I have hooks everywhere. You can use them for hanging up towels or kitchen accessories you can’t fit into a drawer. I put hooks everywhere in my camper for hanging caps, backpacks, purses, jackets…
This spice rack doesn’t use a lot of space and you can close it up and store it away if you don’t need it anymore.
Or you make your own spice rack. Buy a metal sheet, add a frame and use liquid nails to hang it on the wall. Put your spices in small metal containers and they will stick on the magnetic sheet. This looks so tidy and clean.
And a slide-out spice rack fits perfectly in your RV for little cabinet space.
Under Shelf baskets
These under-shelf baskets are just great if you need additional space inside your cabinets.
Over the sink rack
This rack also gives you additional space in your kitchen sink area. And for the ones with really small Campers it can be a lifesaver.
Dish Drying Rack
This is so helpful if you don’t have a dishwasher (guess most of us don’t).

Hanger Folds Away
This is genius for hanging clothes to dry or if you need additional hanging space in your bathroom or bedroom. It folds away easily.
Small Bathroom Storage Cabinet
This cabinet is only 6.1 inches wide and fits everywhere. You can also use it in your bedroom or kitchen for additional storage space:
Toothbrush Holder wall mounted
The countertop is normally very limited, this is why hanging holders on the wall is pretty helpful.
Pop up mesh laundry hamper
Laundry is always there so you might as well bring a hamper. But a hamper uses a lot of space therefore get a foldable hamper or a pop-up hamper. When you are done with laundry, store it away.
Yes, this is a wine rack but a genius idea to store towels too. You just need to mount this onto the wall and you have storage for all your towels.
Quick drop zone
I use this storage idea everywhere I can. Right now one is hanging at my front door and we store keys, sunglasses, flashlights, coins, bandaids, poop bags for the dog… Everything you need to have fast access goes in there.
Also good to use in the bathroom for your shampoo, soap, cosmetics, towels anything you use all the time and don’t want to store away.
RV Bedroom Storage Ideas
RV Bedroom Storage Ideas
The absolute best storage idea for the bedroom if you don’t have a nightstand is a bedside storage. It comes in lot of different sizes and colors. Put everything you need for reading in there. Books, glasses, phone, I-pad everything you need before going to sleep.

Additional shelf under cabinets
If you have cabinets over your bed and you have some more space below them, add an additional shelf and baskets to store clothes or accessories.
Organize your clothes
I know, that being organized in a small space can be really hard. This is actually a great idea if you like to have an overview of clothes:
This is an absolutely fantastic idea for storing socks, bras, underwear, belts whatever small stuff you have. You can use the whole height of your cabinet and be very organized.
More cool storage ideas
Where do you put your shoes? While we are traveling we mainly wear crocs or flip flops and take them off before we enter the camper. The sandals get put away in a basket with a lid and stay under the camper.
My broom is always in the way but we found out, that we could hang the broom on the ceiling of the outside storage. Just use these clips:
Or put some on the outside of the camper. These can be hung up with adhesives.
Finding a place for all the shoes drives you crazy? Here are more tips for you:
Summary of the best RV storage ideas
It is so important to have a space for everything inside of your Camper. Otherwise, it can get crowded and so stressful if there is no space to sit because things are piling up on the sofa and bed.
I hope these Camper storage and organization tips will help you to stay organized and to enjoy your travels. Just always consider bringing less, because in the end, you won’t need all the clothes you packed, all the shoes you thought you would wear and all the nick-nacks you thought you would try out.
I started to learn how to macrame in my Travel Trailer, the only thing I need is a string and some sticks to try the different knots. The material doesn’t need lots of space, but it is so peaceful to make something pretty for the interior of the Camper.
