We haven’t always lived in our RV. Once upon a time, that wasn’t all that long ago, we lived in a house. The five of us and our dog put almost all of our stuff into storage containers. It was easy to do. The company dropped off the containers in the driveway and suddenly all of our stuff was packed away.
Storage containers are convenient. They are great for remodeling projects and short term storage that can be delivered where you need it. We just don’t need it living in the RV. I have forgotten what’s in there, but my husband wants to keep all his stuff.
Storage containers cost too much in the long term, so I sought out and found a traditional storage unit that will cost us a fraction of what we have been paying for the container. Today, I had one of our containers delivered. I spent all day moving stuff out of the container.
Tomorrow the company will take away the empty container and bring another. I wouldn’t be truthful if I said I am looking forward to that.
Once our kitchen was finishing up there we a few organization/cleaning details I wanted to remedy. I really wanted my counter space and some other items put neatly out of our toddlers reach. Here is a list of the important items I couldn’t do without now that I have them.
So you have a travel trailer or an RV, whether it’s new to you or you have been an owner for sometime you may have noticed that they don’t come equipped with all the conveniences you would like. Here is a short list containing a few of the items we have recently need to add. Maybe they can come in handy for you as well!
The pantry and other storage cabinets in our travel trailer are deep and dark. I had already purchased an LED light bar under our cabinets inside our home and I liked them so much that when I got fed up with our dark cabinets and not being able to see what is in them ordered more. These are great – they are USB rechargeable and they mount with a magnet. Simply choose where you want to mount it and stick it on. The charge lasts a long time. On/Off options include always on, motion sense and off. In addition, there are three light settings, soft, bright white, and soft+bright white. Get these great lights here.
This is another awesome space saving item that I had already purchased one for inside our home and decided to get another to put in the travel trailer. Why don’t all travel trailers come equipped with a place for paper towels? We ended up placing this above our sink, but it will stick anywhere you want to put it. Mounts vertically and horizontally. The hold is amazing and it does not need mounting hardware. Find this cool paper towel holder here.
Our newest travel trailer seems to have a remote for everything. It’s a travel trailer and there are at least 5 remotes to keep track of. We opted for this 3m mounted remote holder to keep track of the TV/entertainment area remotes. It is small enough to mount behind the TV or the inside of a cabinet. The draw back is the flexibility of the interior wall. We will be mounting this with Command Picture Hanging Strips to compensate for the flex and prevent damage from our not so delicate children. This handy remote holder can be found here.
There are five of us and when we go somewhere in the travel trailer most of the time each of us has at least two pairs of shoes. There is a small cubby area in the doorway for shoes, but having at about 10 pairs of shoes really crowds the space. These space saving shoe holders make it easy to stack pairs of shoes and keep track of the matching pairs saving time and space at the same time. We are going to add an LED light here too. Making this area easier to access. These useful shoe slots can be found here.
