If you are looking for ways to organize and add storage to your camper or motorhome but don’t want to drill any holes in the walls or wood, one of these adhesive items might be the perfect accessory for your RV kitchen or bathroom.
Before we get to the list, though, I want to mention a couple of disclaimers:
- In choosing the items for this list, I tried to only include items that had a lot of positive reviews. However, I don’t have personal experience with these items, so please do your own research before deciding to purchase any of these items. My main goal is just to let you know about them, and then you can make your own decision about whether or not they are a good idea!
- No drilling doesn’t necessarily mean no damage. Some of these items may cause wallpaper to bubble or tear if you try to remove them. Several of the items on the list are designed to be removable, however, and I have pointed those out.
- If you are interested in one of these items but want try to make sure it can be removed without damage, you might try installing it using Command strips or acrylic mounting tape instead of just the adhesive it comes with. Again, that’s not a guarantee – just a suggestion!
Now, without further ado…25+ adhesive items that you can install in your RV with no screws, holes, or drilling!
(Click on photos to see where to purchase.)
Toilet Paper Holder
One reviewer said they successfully used Command strips to install this so that it would be removable. (Although I’m not sure why anyone would want to remove it….)
Toilet Brush Holder
Anything you can get off the floor of your RV means less to pack up for travel. This toilet brush and holder set sticks on the wall next to the toilet where it is conveniently handy for using.
This soap dish, from the Command company, is installed with Command strips, so it’s supposed to be removable. There are a few other style options on the product page as well.
Paper Towel Holder
Comes in black or white; can be installed vertically or horizontally.
Magnetic Phone or Tablet Mount
Okay, so this is actually supposed to go on the dashboard of a car to hold your phone so you can use it for navigation. We have one in each of our cars, and they’re great. But it occurred to me the other night that I could also stick one to the wall next to my bed as a place for my phone while I’m sleeping.
It’s supposed to be sturdy enough to hold a tablet, too, so you could use it to mount an iPad (or other tablet) for watching TV or a movie, or perhaps in the kitchen so you can look at a recipe while you’re cooking.
When I first saw this thing, I thought, no way that would ever hold! But it sure has a lot of five star reviews! It comes in black, white, chrome, green, or yellow.
Designed to stick to the bottom of a desk, I think these drawers could come in really handy stuck to the bottom of a bathroom cabinet as well.
Wire Caddies & Racks
These things can be used just about anywhere: on the wall, on a cabinet door, on a kitchen backsplash, on a window or mirror, even in the shower!
A few other uses for these hooks are suggested on the product page.
I like how this Camco brand toothbrush holder has a cover that folds down to keep out dust….
…but these stainless steel toothbrush holders look sharp, and you can set an inverted drinking cup on top.
These acrylic holders come in lots of different shapes and sizes and have all kinds of uses.
Keep your remote controls organized on the wall next to your couch or recliner.
This adhesive organizer could be used for pens and pencils, kitchen utensils, or medicine cabinet organization, and more.
Manufactured by Camco, this adhesive caddy is made to match the original wood in many RV’s; however, it could probably be sanded and stained or painted to match any decor.
An excellent way to make use of wall space in an RV kitchen or bathroom.
Typically used in a shower, but these corner racks can really be used in any corner: in the kitchen holding spices and condiments, in the living room holding plants or decor, behind the bathroom sink, next to the bed, and more. You could even spray paint them to be whatever color you wanted.
Most of these racks come in a variety of lengths. I would definitely use acrylic mounting tape to hang these if you are planning to remove them at some point; something tells me that once these things are stuck they’re not going anywhere.
Looks a little nicer on the wall than your typical white plastic Command hook.
I like how this hand towel or wash cloth bar has a hook built in as well.
This next adhesive towel bar comes in multiple lengths.
In addition to using it for towels, you could also hang utensils, buckets, or baskets from it with S hooks, like this:
Photo Display Bar
Display family photos, kids’ artwork, or travel postcards with this adhesive bar.
Stick a puck light in a dark closet, cabinet, or shelf. I will warn you that if you intend to use them for hours each day, you will go through AAA batteries pretty quickly. I added some above my stove in my kitchen but they burn out too quickly for regular use. They are nice to have on hand for emergencies and occasional use, though.
This LED light strip could go under a cabinet, along the top of a slide, or over a desk.
Sometimes you just need a basic shelf. Maybe a place to set your glasses at night, or a display shelf for decor adhered with museum putty.
This cute mirror would make a perfect key rack for a quick look on the way out the door. Just be sure to read the dimensions carefully so you’re not expecting it to be bigger than it is!
I’ve actually seen several photos of RV owners using these Command brand shower caddies in their showers. They would probably come in handy in other places as well – inside a bathroom cabinet door, perhaps?
Broom and Mop Holders
For a broom or mop holder that is designed to be removable, the Command brand once again seems to be the best bet.
If you’re not worried about later removal, or you’re sticking them to something less likely to be damaged (for example, aluminum beams inside your storage bay area), these seem like a great value:
I’m including these on the list because they are very popular and have so many positive reviews. However, they do have some negative reviews as well, so I would recommend reading reviews from both sides before deciding to purchase. If you have trouble with them falling down, you could maybe try using a heavy duty mounting tape or Velcro to hold them up.
The product page for this jewelry holder has quite a few nifty organizational items!
I shared a picture of a similar (but longer) version of this pretty adhesive rack in my article about ideas for RV jewelry storage, but this one is just about as inexpensive as it would cost to make unless you were to use secondhand materials.
Retractable Clothes Line
Not intended for permanent storage of lots of heavy clothes, but this seems like it would be really handy for hanging a few lightweight items (bathing suits, maybe?) to dry in the shower.
Under Sink Organizers
Hair Dryer Holder
This removable holder from Command brand seems like it would come in really handy for someone who uses a hair dryer or straightener daily.
I like the clean, modern look of these Command brand wall-mounted caddies. They can be used with or without the white plastic insert, and they are designed to be removable with no damage to the wall.
