Every inch of storage space counts when you’re on the road. That’s why we’ve scoured the best home organization blogs, checklists, and DIY guides on the Internet to bring you our top 20 low and no-cost tips for keeping the inside of your RV travel trailer organized.

1. Pack safely by layering bubble wrap or non-skid liner between your dishes. Can koozies will help protect your favorite glasses, too.

2. Store grains & pasta in airtight containers, and keep hidden away in a cool microwave or oven when not in use. This is a great way to keep out unwanted critters and utilize unused space.

3. Use self-stick magnet strips to secure and show off photos. Lightweight plastic photo sleeves can also be Velcroed to the wall to display photos.

4. Use extra large air-tight or vacuum-packed bags to store linens like sheets & blankets in your underneath storage areas.

5. Easy-to-remove hooks from 3M won’t leave residue on your walls and they’ll come in handy for your bathrobe, kitchen tools, cables, and other hangables.

    I don’t have a trailer or RV but many of these ideas will work great for homes… especially smaller homes. IE: PCV pipe for curling irons, etc. I’m going to use that idea as a means to organize my extra extension cords, bungie cords, etc. It will free up my drawer and keep them from tangling. I’m attaching the PCV to a board that will be screwed into the wall of my coat closet.

    I’ve been doing the paper towel in the bag with fruits and veggies for several years. It keeps mushrooms from drying out and lettuce from rotting.

    I’m going to try 14 & 15. I have a friend with a trailer that uses the old fashion silverware holder (found at Goodwill) when they are parked, and then places the silverward in heavy duty zip lock bags and places the bags in the floor of the closet or the storage under the bench, when they are traveling. Air tight containers are a great way to store pet food and treats. Pet dishes are stored in zip lock bags when not in use to ensure no insects are drawn to them. I personally place guest towels and sheets in air tight bags with a fabric softner sheet in the bag. Helps them to remain smelling nice and not stale. Three times a year, I remove them (if they haven’t been used) and rewash them – storing with a new fabric sheet.

    Thank you for sharing

      At the dollar store and Wal-Mart. Most WalMart stores have an RV dept. It should be in Automotive..
