37 RV Tips & Tricks That Will Make You A Happy Camper!
Categories: Tips & Tricks
RV Camping is a great family experience. It gives you the ability to drive down the open road, see the sites, and spend time with the ones you love. Here are a few RV hacks that will make you a happier camper by making your trip easier.
1. Shoe Rack Bed Storage
Beds are a great place for added storage. Basically take a shoe holder, cut it as shown, and wire it with heavy cord. It is sturdy enough to hold all of your shoes around your bed frame.
2. Shoe Rack Shower Storage
RVs have the tendency to be low on extra space, shoe racks are always great ways to create instant organized storage. Hang one over your shower curtain rod for extra bath storage.
3. DIY Travel Cup
It never fails, something gets spilled. An easy way to minimize the disaster area is Press’n Seal Wrap. It works with most cups and saves many headaches.
4. PVC Pipe Hammock
Who doesn’t love a hammock! After you’re parked be sure to put together a hammock for kids and big kids to enjoy. It can even double as an extra bed! It required 2 inch PVC Pipe for the main span and 1.5 in for the cross pieces. Sleeves were sewn in the fabric and the PVC was slipped through and connected together. Then ran rope through the long pieces and through a hole in 1.5 in pieces that are used to prevent the rope from slipping back through the door closure. You can store it in the pop top gap up top when not in use.
5. Command Hook Curtains
Need a temporary curtain to create separation in your RV, don’t want to drill holes into the frame, or simply want a super easy way to hang curtains. Use command hooks to hold up your curtain rod!
6. DIY Tank Cleaner
Toilets are always dreaded to clean, especially RV ones. An easy fix is a cup of Borax detergent and 1/2 cup of Calgone Water Softener. The Borax helps control odor and the water softener prevents waste from sticking to the walls of the waste tank. Be nice to your RV bathroom and keep your tank clean.
