Trying to find a hack for eliminating the pile of shoes next to the front door in your camper or motorhome? See if one of these ideas can help.
1. Shoe Organizer Hung on the Side of the Bed
A regular over-the-door shoe organizer can be cut into sections and hung around the base of a bed, or along a wall or cabinet. Find out how using this tutorial. To attach the organizer to the bed in a camper or motorhome, some RV owners have used Gorilla Tape, Velcro, screws, or staples.
You can also purchase this one that's ready-made and ready to hang with no drilling or damage:
2. Shoe Organizer Hung on Front Door
The Miles family uses a homemade shoe organizer right on the interior of 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 snaps. (Thank you to the Miles family for sharing such a detailed explanation!)
3. Space Saving Double Shoe Rack
This type of shoe rack is one of the most space-efficient styles I've seen, because it lets you store shoes two layers deep. You could mount it on a wall, door, side of a cabinet, along the bed, or anywhere you can find space.
4. Door Hooks to Hang Shoes Along Bed
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.
6. Small Shoe Cabinet
If you can find a spot to put it, a small shoe cabinet secured to the floor or wall (so it doesn't shift during travel) keeps shoes neatly out of site. This one comes in either white or gray:
7. Tray Top Storage Ottoman
A tray top storage ottoman makes a great place to store shoes worn less frequently because it provides an extra seat as well as a place to set drinks when you flip the lid over.
9. Wooden Shoe Racks
These wooden shoe racks are a lot cuter than many of the options on this list, especially if you're decorating your RV with a rustic theme.
10. Wall Mounted Elastic Mesh Caddies
The nice thing about these mesh storage caddies compared with other wall mounted shoe storage solutions is that it's less likely to hurt if you bang your shin on them, and when they aren't full of shoes they lay completely flat against the wall.
11. Fifth Wheel Stair Modification
The space under the stairs is often wasted in RV's, but with some modifications 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.
12. Wall Storage Baskets
RV owner Amanda hung wall storage baskets using Command hooks to store shoes in the hallway of her fifth wheel RV.
You could try something similar with baskets like this:
13. Repurposed Cabinet
One clever RV owner purchased a kitchen cabinet to use as shoe storage. (Look for a cheap one at a Habitat for Humanity restore!)
15. Adhesive Wall Mounted Shoe Racks
Don't want to drill holes in the walls in the walls of your RV? These adhesive plastic shoe racks may be the perfect solution for you! They come in a pack of 6, and you can get them in black or white.
Hopefully these ideas will help you solve your own shoe storage problem!
