I'm super excited to share these hacks with y'all! Rob's cousin, Sheri, came to me and was looking for a solution for some storage issues she had with her new camper. The camper she and her husband, Pat recently purchased is nothing short of amaaaaazing--totally modern and beautiful--but as anyone knows who has spent time in a camper, you have to get a little creative with your storage or you'll find yourself frustrated...with the quickness! I tried these 5 hacks out on Sheri and Pat's camper and I got 4 thumbs up! What's even better is not a nail was hammered and not a screw was screwed.

SUPPLIES:

-room essentials 3-shelf hanging closet organizers

-Command hooks

-Everbilt S hooks

-wire baskets

-clear plastic containers

-12 shower roller rings

-shower curtain

-expandable shower rod

Hack 1: BATHROOM TOWEL STORAGE

One of Sheri's requests was to have a place in the bathroom area for storing towels. Before, the only place to have them in the bathroom was sitting on the sink or the toilet seat and I think we all can agree that the latter doesn't sound so great.


To solve this problem, I used slate colored Command Hooks. These particular ones hold about three pounds each which was perfect for what I needed them for.

Once I mounted the hooks on the wall as per the instructions on the packaging, I hung a wire basket that I snagged on Clearance at Marshall's.

This was the perfect solution to store extra towels and keep them off the ground, and out of the shelving. Not to mention they look cute, too!

Hack 2: CABINET/FOOD STORAGE AND ORGANIZATION

A second issue Sheri was having was her food moving around when the camper was en route to or from wherever they were camping at. She mentioned that everything would roll and shift in the cabinets.

A simple solution for this issue was to place some small plastic bins inside the cabinets. Not only do the bins keep the food from sliding around, they also create an organized space. If you want to go one step further, you could add velcro to the bottom of the bins!

Hack 3: NO TOOLS-NEEDED CLOSET SHELVING

This hack was probably my favorite of all! Sheri really expressed the fact that she and her husband, Pat, needed closet shelving. Because the camper walls were so flimsy and unpredictable as far as nailing and screwing, she was afraid for me to add actual shelving.

Solution: hanging shelves! I found these beauties online at Target and they were the perfect size for the closet areas in Sheri and Pat's room in their camper. Sheri originally had a little plastic bin in both her and Pat's closet cabinets so those fit perfectly under the hanging organizers. Be sure to watch the video to see how these hanging closet organizers turned out!

Hack 4: FRUIT/VEGGIE/MISC. STORAGE

Much like the bathroom towels, Sheri was having an issue with where to put her fruits and veggies without taking up counter space.

To fix this problem, I again used slate colored Command Hooks that hold three pounds each.

Easy and quick fix!

Hack 5: Outdoor shower privacy/bathing suit hangers

The final issue Sheri had was not having a place where she and her family could privately shower outdoors and hang their bathing suits when they came off of the beach. The outdoor shower setup was between two slide outs of the camper so Rob had the perfect idea...!

I had a shower curtain on hand that I wasn't using so I simply purchased some new slider rings for it...

I really love how this came out and totally solved the hanging bathing suit situation.

    The self adhesive hooks do not work in areas that get hot in the summer, especially on exterior walls of your camper or motorhome. If anything is left on the hooks when the unit does not have the AC on, you will likely find the hooks on the floor and the vinyl wallpaper damaged. Highly recommend the over the door towel holders though. I find them on line at Camper World.
