RV Organization Accessories
Sheets for Your RV Bedroom
RV sheets can be a pain if you have an odd bed size. Finding a quality source for odd size sheets is a struggle. Camping Worlds sheets are not the best quality. I’m a little bit of a sheet snob. I found this company for sheets for my short queen when we had our other RV and they were great! They have other types of RV related bedding items, like mattress pads and blankets.
Shoe Hangers for Your RV Bedroom
Shoe organizers are great RV organizational accessories. They can be used a lot of ways in your RV bedroom. They are great camper organizers for things more than just shoes! I have seen people use them over their bathroom door and use the pockets to organize their bathroom items.
There are shoe organizers for your closet, like the one I have and has worked well for me.
Since closet space is limited in an RV, a creative way of organizing your shoes is hanging them around the base of the bed. Most RV mattresses and platforms extend over the base of the bed. That leaves a recessed space that you can put a shoe organizer around the base and organize your shoes that way. It hooks over the open edge of the bed base so it looks tidy when closed. Depending on the size of your mattress and the recess of your bed base, you might not see much at all. I have not personally used this because I have a king size bed so my base is super recessed and I couldn’t access the shoes for using it. Check it out though, It’s a great RV storage idea and it might work for you!
Bins for your RV Bedroom
My favorite bins for my RV bedroom are from Sterlite. To me, they feel nice, almost like a drawer when you have them in your cabinets or on RV shelving These are great RV organization accessories. They come in so many sizes so you can adapt them to your own situation. They are made of a nice plastic, not cheap and will function well for years to come. I have them everywhere! In my closet and all my cabinets. I love how they look(you can’t see the mess inside), feel and that you can label them with your trusty labeler.
Hamper for Your RV Bedroom
Ever since we bought an RV, dirty clothes storage has been a difficulty. I even have a built-in hamper in my bus but it’s tiny and certainly doesn’t hold a lot of dirty clothes maybe 3 outfits at most, especially when men’s clothes are usually bulkier than women’s. I went on the hunt for a RV storage idea.
Your RV bedroom might not have a lot of extra space for more items to sit out…. but….I found this hamper! I love this hamper! It’s pretty, it’s super slim, has a lid, and could be used to cart laundry to the laundry mat with ease. I, however, did not appreciate the price but bought it anyway! 🙂 I am so glad I did! I have a perfect spot in my RV bedroom for it and you hardly know it’s there.
Closet Hangers for your RV Bedroom
I am going to try these hangers for a RV closet space saving solution. I can see the value for storing you hanging clothes like this in the back of the closet like for winter/summer storage, especially jackets. I watched an unbiased video on this and it didn’t save as much closet space as they tout. But it’s enough in our RV bedroom storage situations that could make a difference. Every inch counts. If you have used these and have feedback, please comment below. I am ordering some this week and I can let you know too!
On another hand, I think using skinnier hangers would help tremendously in your RV bedroom closet. Our Georgetown had this stupid rack that separated every hanger and was a pain to get clothes on and off the rack. The tubular hangers wouldn’t go in the space properly so we hand to use hangers that had metal hooks to make it work. I had Bryan take that hanging set up down and put up a bar like in a real closet. In that small space, skinny hangers work the best! So even now that I have a lot more room in my current closet these hangers will help out a lot!
I have Command hooks everywhere in my RV….you really can’t live without them if you want to make the most of your RV storage space.
These heavy duty Command hooks are awesome! I had a wall in my bedroom that was bare but was covered up when the slide was in. I wanted some hanging options for jackets and bags in my bedroom. I put up these hooks and they work great!!!! This was a smart use of RV space.
They have never come off. The backpack in the picture is full and heavy. These hooks hold like a dream. I only remove the items hanging there on travel day for the slide to come in. I put the items on the bed while traveling and hang them right back up when we set up again. This idea became an awesome RV storage solution. Run, don’t walk…you need these hooks! These are a must-have item for organizing your RV bedroom!
Fan for your RV Bedroom
A fan in your bedroom at some point in the year is a great thing to have. Not every RV has a ceiling fan option. Mine does but I can’t move the fan to the front of the RV if I want a fan up there! I consider this a must-have item for your RV bedroom.
The Dyson fan looks like a great option for the RV lifestyle. They are not inexpensive so be prepared for sticker shock. Although, the cost of a ceiling fan and installation could be comparable. They have refurbished ones available as well as an option for tabletop or freestanding. I have heard great things about them and my friends who own them, love them. I love the idea that it is quiet and it is safe, no blades to get your fingers or any little ones caught in it. I may invest in one for the front of the RV this summer!
Dehumidifier for your RV Bedroom
Living in an RV isn’t like a house…I’m sure you have noticed 😊 They are not insulated as well and let moisture in more than we would like. You also are living in such a small space that showering and cooking create more moisture than can evaporate quickly. A dehumidifier is necessary to dry the air inside your RV.
You can purchase an electric one that removes the moisture from the air. Or you can choose a low tech option of dehumidifier bags that absorb the moisture from the air into a bag filled with an absorbing agent and then you dispose of them
We have one that cost more than we would have liked to spent. 😊 We had a ceiling leak a week after we moved into our RV and were in a very small town that only had a Sears to buy from. We are very happy with it but Amazon has many shapes and sizes to choose from at a better price than this one.
Whatever option you choose, be sure to have one available especially when you travel in the summer to humid places like Florida or Texas.
Space heater for your RV Bedroom
Having alternate or an extra heat source in your RV bedroom or anywhere in your RV can make you more comfortable on cold nights. It also will save you money on propane. RV fire safety guidelines suggest using a ceramic heater as a safe option. When using any heat source you should make sure you have the proper fire prevention measures in place. Read about RV Fire Safety in this informative post.
RV Mattress for your RV Bedroom
RV mattresses, in my opinion, are a pain in the butt (excuse my French 😊). We have actually spent too much money getting comfortable in our RV. It’s quite frustrating. Our first RV (Forest River Georgetown) had a short queen and we bought it used from Camping World and finagled a new mattress from them as part of our deal. Camping World mattresses are terrible…even the upgraded ones. They may be fine for weekend camping or a trip once in a while but for full-time sleeping….NO! We bought a memory foam short queen mattress from Sam’s. That was the mattress that went with the RV when we sold it. When we bought our 2008 Allegro Bus and it came with a sleep number bed. We didn’t like it at all and soon bought a memory foam from Amazon. No luck there….it was too soft and felt like we were sleeping in a hole. We succumbed to spending way more than we wanted on a memory foam with cool get from Mattress Firm. We wanted to do a coil/memory foam combo but when you look into those types, they are too heavy ( and too tall ) for the RV and you would lose your ability to lift the mattress and access under bed storage. So that was not an option.
I wish we had found this RV mattress company before we spent all the money we have on RV mattresses. They have great options for all types of beds that you might find in an RV. Mattress Insider has great reviews and other RVers are talking about them so I wanted to share this resource with you! Let me know how they are if you buy one!!!
