RV'ers Can Create Organized Space in The RV Bedrooms
Closet bursting at the seams, clothes strewn all over the bed and shoes scattered all over the entire room. Is this your RV bedroom? It used to be mine!
Let’s face it, RV bedrooms are not known for their large closets and ample storage space! Moving from a regular bedroom into a tiny RV bedroom requires some organizing and de-cluttering on your part, but it can be done.
With a little RV closet storage help, you can make the most of your living space and minimize frustration, and make your RV’s bedroom feel like an oasis!
OR of course, you could head down to Camping World for a new Class A Motor Home. But for today, let’s look at enhancing the one you have.
IF YOU’RE CURIOUS OR IN A HURRY:
This pack of thin but powerful hangers is super popular for fitting more clothes in your camper closet! They are also non slip so nothing falls on the floor! (Is there anything worse than constantly picking clothes up off the floor?) They are one of our must have storage solutions for your camper or travel trailer.
This hanging organizer is the BEST RV BEDROOM accessory for RV owners because it works for so many things! You can store shoes, underwear, toiletries. It works for so many things and it’s super sturdy! I have had mine for over 4 years and it’s still going strong!
This hanging laundry bag is genius! You don’t always have room for a laundry basket in an rv, so this hanging one is perfect. You can hang it on the back of a door, closet, bathroom, really anywhere you can find a space for it. This really helps to keep your clothes off the floor!
I used these vacuum storage bags for switching out clothes from season to season, as well as packing the kids clothes for different ages. Great for getting a lot into a small space.
I’m guessing a haven of messiness is not what you were looking for when you thought about the RV lifestyle. Your RV bedroom should be a place that you can escape to after a strenuous day of hiking to relax.
It should be a place that feels like home, (a smaller home, but still home) But without doing an entire RV bedroom remodel, what can you do to keep things organized? How can you create more space for storage?
So, after years of experience, trial and error, and testing many RV storage solutions, I have found 10 clever ways to organize your RV bedroom and turn it into a place you will love. These RV bedroom ideas will really help you to maximize space.
We will find the best RV storage spots to create extra space to store your shoes, or hang your jewelry, as well as sharing our best RV under bed storage ideas and the best RV organizational products.
Organizing a small master bedroom is not that hard to do once you have the right accessories.
1. Use Hanging Organizers Where You Can
I have several of these hanging organizers in my RV, I use one in the kitchen for snack overflow, and one in our RV bedroom for socks and underwear. You can hang it on RV bedroom walls, or on the bathroom or closet doors.
This hanging organizer fits so many RV storage needs we have living in a tiny space – toiletries, makeup, baby items. These have lasted me over four years, which I didn’t expect for the price.
This was one of those great RV storage ideas and is highly recommended for small spaces. You can use it to store toiletries, underwear, baby clothes and essentials.
2. Get The Best Clothes Hangers For The RV
RV bedroom closets don’t hold that many clothes so in order to fit enough clothes for full time living, you need a thin hanger to fit more clothes in. This is one of those simple space saving RV ideas.
Using these hangers, I can fit pants, shirts, and t-shirts in my rv bedroom closet for the season I am in. I pack the rest of my clothes under the bed until I am ready for them.
3. Storage Ideas For RV Closets - Hanging Hamper
One of the big ways to organize your motorhome or travel trailer bedroom is to get all clothes off the floor and into a hamper. In my fifth wheel, I have space to store a collapsible hamper in my closet, which has worked well for over four years!
For those of you who don’t have the space in your closet. This hanging hamper is awesome and it gets everything off the floor. Plus it fits into a tight space. When it’s laundry time, remove it from the hooks and take it with you.
4. RV Shoe Storage Ideas
When we moved into our RV, I had already purged 95% of my shoe collection (boy was that hard to do)! Yet I still brought a pair of sneakers, casual shoes, flip flops, plus Frank’s AND the kids shoes. That’s a lot of shoes!!!
You want to have your shoes right? But it’s hard to figure out how to store shoes in an RV.
I needed somewhere to fit them all, originally we had them in these plastic bins from Ikea. We kept them outside, underneath the rig. That worked fine but some of my shoes I didn’t want to be outside so I purchased this for underneath the bed in the RV bedroom.
For those of you with little space, again these hanging organizers will work perfectly for you, and it gets more stuff off the floor! You can also use command hooks in many places around the RV bedroom walls, or in closets.
5. Jewelry Organizer
One of the ladies favorite RV organization products. If you love jewelry and plan to bring it in the RV with you, this is the perfect storage system for you. It hands from a door, or a hook, or hang it in the camper closet with your clothes.
It comes with 80 pockets so you’ll have plenty of room for all your jewelry needs.
6. Under RV Beds Storage Ideas
A full time rving wardrobe will require clothes for all seasons, which will not all fit into the closet. If you need a place to store extra blankets, sleeping bags, or winter clothing, shoes etc, under the RV beds is the perfect storage area. However we still want to keep it organized under there.
These vacuum space saver bags work really well for RV clothes storage, as do these see-through totes. Both are great RV storage space-saving ideas. These work brilliantly for small spaces!
Buying the see-through plastic bins helps me to see what is stored in the box at all times.
7. Camper Clothes Storage Ideas - Organize Your Drawers
Organizing underwear and socks in such a tiny space can be frustrating, but help is here! I found these awesome drawer separators on Amazon and they work beautifully to keep everything in order.
They are one of the best RV space saving items, we use them to organize socks and underwear for the kids.
8. RV Closet Ideas- Genius Accessory Hook
I am convinced this accessory hook was made for people in RVs, it’s such a clever way to store bras, belts, and scarves without taking up much room. Heck you could ever store a couple of handbags on here. This is one of our favorite items to use in the bedroom closets. Also good for any extra wall space you may have.
9. RV Organization Accessories - Men's Dresser Organizer
If your husband is anything like mine, he ends up tossing coins on the dresser, his keys (even though we have a key holder in the front of the RV), and his electronics.
Immediately the dresser looks untidy until I clean it up! I bought this organizer for him, it fits nicely on the dresser and can be put in a drawer on RV travel day. Works like a charm.
10. Space Saving Ideas For RV Living- Bedside Storage
If you have a bedside table in your RV, you’re one of the lucky ones. Most don’t have one, so we have found a brilliant alternative.
Check out this bedside caddy where you can store your phone, tv remote, a book or anything you need close by at night time. You now have easy access to these items, and they are stored neatly out of the way. Make this part of your RV bedding ideas.
Here are some more ideas for clever RV organizational products that can help you keep your RV bedroom organized. This genius RV storage idea is great for keeping all those sun hats out of your closet.
If you have room in your RV, this is a great way to store blankets that you need close by (if you have the space), plus it makes your room more cozy. This is another great way to store sunglasses, lip balm and other small stuff you need on hand.
When it comes to rv bedroom ideas, you have to be creative and think outside the box! Here is some more inspiration:
If you love reading books, think about investing in a kindle and save on the space. Command hooks are your new best friend, always keep some in the RV.
Clothes are the main factor in cluttering up your RV bedroom, I recommend only keeping out the clothes you are currently wearing and storing the others underneath your bed in vacuum packed storage bags.

Love these ideas. How do you hang the hanging storage bins in a pop up?
Find a logical spot to put some hooks- maybe on the door. Just lie the hanger flat for travel and hang it up when parked. We do the same- lie it on a bed for travel. There are some cool ideas out there for hanging bins off the underside of the extensions as well.
Exactly what I was looking for, but unfortunately located in the UK. But I will say a very big thank you and I would have used your links had I been able
We appreciate you Alexandra and all of our friends “across the pond!” Hopefully the content is helpful (if not the links lol). Hoping to do a UK/EU visit soon! Grainne is missing her home town (Dublin)
I have a ton of questions….. we (my husband & I) oh and must not forget my puppy Remington will be leaving California and start our travel/adventure. We are selling the business and venturing out. Still trying to decide what sort of RV to buy….or even where is the first place we need to visit. I am sooooo in awe of you and your family…. I truly am a bit scared of the new life that we face…. But life is short.
Monica – George and Remington
Don’t fear- you will love it. You are correct, life is short.
Here is a good article we wrote filled with tips and things to think about. https://therovingfoleys.com/rv-tips/
Choosing an RV is tough, but fun. My advice is always to shop, shop, shop. Talk to a lot of people, see a lot of rigs. Eventually, the right one will speak to you and you will know.
Best of luck! Feel free to reach out with questions.
Hi Monica, seen and read your post, how are things going.. with start if your new adventure. I and hubby are in the same decision and It is very scary . Let me know how its going and any advise you may have or just to chat about things.
Not sure if you have already purchased a rig, but I suggest that maybe renting something first might be a good idea. RV Share is a good resource
My advice is to start small. We went from pop up to travel trailer to fifth wheel as we got more comfortable. I must admit our fifth wheel was a joy. I found it easier to hook up and tow. However, the journey to getting one was important. ( I could have skipped the pop up. I needed AC. )
I loved the video and your children are beautiful
Thanks Monica, we are thinking we will keep them LOL!
I’m constantly looking for clever ideas to help with making the bed! Because our mattress is wall to wall, like shown in your post, I cannot seem to ever get the top sheets secured and they pop off every single night. It’s a battle I’m sick of fighting! Any recommendations?
That doesn’t sound like fun! Have you tried zip sheets, where they basically hug the size of the mattress and don’t move again?
We did not use them but I know of lots of people who rave about zip sheets, they might work for you.
Beddy’s bedding is the way to go. A little pricey but definitely worth it in the long run with the tight spaces in an RV. Super easy and convenient.
We had a pull behind camper and after getting tired, I started sliding the mattress off and putting the fitted sheet on the top half and sliding the mattress back up. Finished making the bed, whoala!!!
Now we have a 32 footer RV and haven’t taken our first trip. With this one, the mattress isn’t wall to wall so I anticipate it being a lot easier. I am so nervous! Much different than a pull behind and it’s so big and long to me!!
I don’t have a camper yet, working on it. I do have a hack for your sheets. I have a king bed that the sheets slide off of too I used some elastic and sewed it diagonal on the corners no more sliding off the bed. As for the flat sheets when making the bed I tuck the flat into the elastic on the sides keeps it tide. My hubby is a truck driver and that’s how I make up his bed there too. Good luck.
Another great way to hang clothes in RVs is with childrens hangers because they are not so wide. I just “fold/hang” our shirts. It makes them easier to acess then in drawers and reduces fold lines.
Awesome idea Peggy, we use thin hangers which allow you to hang more clothes in your closet, ours are non slip too which keeps the clothes from falling off – another pet peeve of mine lol.
Laundry basket … we just use the washing machine! Great post.
I have a hack I use in the RV as well as home. I hook soda tabs over my hangers and hang another shirt vertically down. Our RV closet is next to the bed with attached nightstands that make it difficult to reach anything placed in the bottom. By using soda tabs I can hang three shirts vertically allowing us to hang much more in tiny closets.
Awesome tip, thanks for sharing Marcia
Also another way to store lingerie, socks, ties, etc., the plastic jewelry holder hanging bags are awesome. I used them to store my socks and tights in at the storage unit.
Great Idea Brenda
Hi, I do not have bedside tables at all (walk to wall mattress)and I’m looking for ideas so I can put a cup, book, glasses etc. for each side of the bed. Any ideas ?
Did you see the bedside caddy? That might work for glasses and a water bottle and book. Could you maybe use a tray and then set it by your bed when you’re done?
Let me know if they work.
