This week our “5 for Friday” series focuses on cheap RV hacks. These are hacks we use on a daily basis… and cost less than $20 each! Along with how we use the hack, we’ll list the price of each item and a direct link to Amazon.
Watch the Video!
#1 – Heavy Duty Velcro
How we use it: Heavy duty velcro is one of our favorite hacks. Every picture in our camper is secured with velcro. We’ve had good luck with the 15lbs weight capacity, but if you’re going to use the velcro, don’t buy the pre-cut tabs … buy the roll.
We also secure small pots with succulents and our jar of utensils.
#2 – Tension Rods
How we use it: We learned this hack the hard way, and very quickly. Tension rods are great for securing items inside the fridge on travel day. We also use them to secure canned goods and books on our bookshelf.
Every RV is unique. Fortunately, tension rods are extremely adaptable. You never know where it will come in handy…until travel day.
#3 – Command Hooks
How we use it: The walls in an RV can be some of the best unused space. We found that command hooks add versatility in storing items that we use regularly. Hats, belts, towels, kitchen utensils and cutting boards are all easy to hang items with command hooks.
An added feature with the hooks is that no drilling holes is necessary. Each hook is applied to the wall with tape, making removing the hooks easy and safe.
#4 – Mini Bungee Cord
How we use it: Mini Bungee Cords are fun and functional. We use the cords to secure cabinets during travel day. They can be used in the fridge, bathroom, and kitchen for additional support to semi-loose items.
The bungees also work as a great door holder when keeping the front door open. If you tow a trailer and use your truck bed for storage, bungees have unlimited uses for additional security.
#5 – Cabinet Organizers
How we use it: This is a “catch-all” hack depending on how your rig is set up. Our cabinets are deep and tall, creating a very inefficient storage situation. We use cabinet organizers to increase storage space in our pantry and bathroom.
Simply figure out the dimensions of your storage space and then search Amazon. The organizer we have linked above is a hanging organizer. These are easy because they require zero installation.
UPDATE: We’ve begun work on a new music project! In April we’ll enter the recording studio to capture an album inspired by life on the road. If you’ve found our blogs informative or inspirational, please give this a look. We need your help to complete the album.
