1. Classic shoe organizer
Over a doors isn’t the only place a shoe organizer can be hung.
A regular over-the-door shoe organizer can be cut into sections and hung around the base of the bed or along a wall or cabinet. Find out how using this tutorial or this one. To attach the organizer, RV owners have used Gorilla Tape, Velcro, screws, or staples.
You can also purchase a ready-made one from Camping World or the one from Amazon pictured below.
The Miles family uses this homemade shoe organizer right on their front door as a handy place to store flip-flops.
The back of the organizer is made from pet screen material edged with binding tape, and the pockets were made from mesh net fabric edged with bias tape and sewn to the pet screen through ribbon to reinforce the stitching. Finally, the organizer was attached to the door using SnapRite snaps. (Thank you to the Miles family for sharing such a detailed explanation!)
Several RV owners have used over-the-door hooks, available online or inexpensively at Dollar Tree, as shoe hangers along the edge of the bed frame.
One RV owner, who calls his wife a “sandal-aholic”, screwed mug hooks into a strip of wood for hanging flip-flops.
3. Shoe cabinet
Ikea sells several versions of a shoe cabinet, like this one for under $30.
Or if you’re the handy type, you can make a beautiful one in your own style using these plans.
4. Storage ottoman
5. Simple shoe shelf
A shoe shelf to kick shoes onto like this bamboo one from Walmart is handy to have next to the front door for shoes worn most often.
6. Under the stairs
The space under the stairs is often wasted in RV’s, but with a little creativity, it can become the perfect shoe hiding spot.
These RV stairs had empty space underneath, so the owners simply turned them around to create access.
This under-stair storage cubby was created in an RV where the carpet was replaced with laminate flooring.
Other RV owners have added hinges to their stair treads so they can be opened to create storage inside.
7. Stair storage basket
If taking apart the stairs doesn’t sound like something you want to do, a basket like this might be a better way to utilize the space.
8. Wall storage racks
9. Kitchen cabinet repurposed
One clever RV owner purchased a kitchen cabinet to use as shoe storage. (Look for a cheap one at a Habitat for Humanity restore!)
