Ideas for Storing Fruit & Vegetables in Your RV
This post may contain affiliate links.
Ashley Mann spent three years living full time in a 38-foot, 5th-wheel RV with her husband Josiah and their cat, Kitty. Her favorite thing about RV life is the challenge of finding the perfect way to organize a space, and she loves seeing all the creative and clever ways people come up with to customize their RVs.
I like to eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, even while camping or traveling. These can take up a lot of precious cabinet or refrigerator space, so adding some additional storage for potatoes, fruits, and other shelf-stable produce can be a good way to save space and keep your RV more organized.
1. Hanging baskets
3-tier fruit baskets come in many different colors and styles. The tricky part might be finding a good place to hang it since many RVs have a metal ceiling. Perhaps a screw hole from a vent cover could be dual-purposed? Or you could try one of these heavy-duty adhesive ceiling hooks.
2. Over-the-door basket
One of these baskets can be used for much more than fruit. I used this one in my RV kitchen to make use of space that would have been wasted otherwise.
3. Fruit hammock
You can buy one of these cute fruit hammocks here or try making one yourself.
4. Basket hung with S hooks
RV owner Sharon picks up baskets secondhand at garage sales and flea markets and uses them to store things throughout her RV.
5. Wall mounted baskets
The owner of this RV uses a ladder to reach the top baskets. She bought her baskets at Hobby Lobby. You can get a similar set of wall mounted baskets here.
Here is a picture from my own RV. I purchased wire baskets (similar to these) and hung them with mug hooks, but if you don't like the idea of putting holes in your walls, you could try these wire baskets hung with adhesive holders.
5. Rolling cart
Another good option for fruit and vegetable storage would be a rolling cart like this one, which could be easily moved somewhere out of the way when you need to bring your RV slides in:
6. Small free standing produce bin
I personally have this 3-tier bin. It is very narrow and tucks away perfectly in a nook or cranny. To hold it in place while you're driving, you could place Command hooks on the wall behind it and set the wire baskets over the hooks.

I have been looking for the best way to store fruit and veggies out in the open in our 26′ RV. The wire baskets attached to a wall or to the side of the cupboard seem to be the way to go for us.
