30+ RV Bathroom Organization Ideas and Storage Hacks

There never seems to be enough storage space in a camper, but these clever RV bathroom storage ideas can help you stay organized no matter how tiny your bathroom is.

RV Shower Solutions

Some RV showers offer built-in shelves, but because there is rarely a railing to keep items in place, extra shower storage is a must. These are great places to start:

Pocket Shower Caddy

MISSLO Hanging Mesh Pockets Hold 340oz/1000ml Shampoo Shower Organizer with Over the Door Hooks
  • Travel shower caddy has 4 large mesh pockets each hold 34oz / 1000ml shampoo, 4 smaller pockets, quick drying and breathable;

This hanging shower caddy can be hung over a shower curtain rod or a glass shower door. Put one on the inside of your shower for shampoo and conditioner, and one on the outside for hair accessories, makeup, deodorant, and other toiletries!

Wire Shower Caddies

If you're looking for something a little more sturdy, you might prefer a metal shower caddy. These can actually be hung over any type of door, and again, can be used on the inside or outside of the shower.

The multi-level shower caddy shown above is one of the best shower caddies I've seen for a large family (or anyone who has a lot of shower products!).

Even though the style of wire basket shown below is designed to go over a cabinet door, they fit great inside my RV shower.

Add a Tension Rod to an RV Shower

If you don't have anywhere to hang a caddy, you can add a tension rod spanning across the back wall of your shower to create a place to hang storage baskets with no damage to your RV walls.

Wall Mounted RV Shampoo Dispenser

Ever-popular with RV owners, a wall-mounted shampoo and soap dispenser eliminates the need for storing bottles altogether.

Tension Shelf

A classic corner shower shelf like this one is wonderful if you have space for it. A shower isn't the only place a corner shelf can be used to add extra storage, either.  I have one in another corner of my bathroom and another one in the corner of my RV living room that I set decor on.

My RV has shelves in the shower, so I made “walls” out of plexiglass to prevent items from falling off the shelves while the RV is moving.  As an added bonus, the walls make it easier to store bottles upside down when they are almost empty.

Adhesive Caddies

Avolare Shower Caddy, 2 Pack Adhesive Shower Organizer with Razor Hooks and 4 Adhesives, No-Drill Large Capacity Rustproof Stainless Steel Shower Shelf for Dormitory, Kitchen, Bathroom Storage, Bronze
  • 【Advanced Painting Technology & Rustproof】Bathroom is usually the most humid room in your home. Avolare shower shelf is made of 100% stainless steel with advanced painting technology, which is rustproof waterproof. High quality material makes the organizer non-fading, scratch-resistant, work longer than plastic and chrome basket. You can use the shower caddy as a shampoo holder or kitchen spice rack, or in your bedroom to store your smartphone and diary. 2 pack shower caddy will meet your needs.

These adhesive caddies can be placed wherever they are needed. I have personally used these and let me tell you, if you have any doubts about whether or not they will stay stuck to the wall, you do not need to worry! The adhesive is SUPER strong.  

Their use is not limited to the shower, either…you could stick one to a mirror, refrigerator door, stove backsplash, window, or any smooth surface in your RV where you'd like to add some extra storage.

Ideal extra storage space for your bathroom, toilet, lavatory and kitchen.

Using Doors to Organize Your RV Bathroom

This over-the-door storage organizer is so useful that I have three of them in my RV.

Also in this picture you can see how I used a tension shower shelf in the corner of my RV bathroom for storing toilet paper. The plant is stuck to the top shelf with acrylic mounting tape so it can stay right there while the RV is moving.

Towel Rack for Hanging Towels in Your RV

  • 3 LEVEL STORAGE: Three towel bars and two hooks hold and store towels, loofahs, sponges, robes and other bathroom accessories; The open design makes grabbing a towel quick and easy when your hands are wet; The open design of the over door towel storage adds a decorative touch to bathroom decor

Over the door is a good place to hang towels, either for daily use or for storage. An over-the-door ladder-style towel rack like this one may be hung on a glass shower door or wall, as well.

Personally, I prefer to hang towels on hooks instead of a towel bar because I find it easier. An over-the-door coat rack makes it possible to hang several towels on a single door.

  • Material: heavy duty over the door hook is constructed from sturdy stainless steel

A wine bottle storage rack can also be hung on an RV bathroom door for storing rolled-up towels.

Robe Hook on an RV Bathroom Door

Since it's just me and my husband in our RV, I prefer just a single robe hook for hanging my husband's towel on our bathroom door. 

Robe hook on a door in my RV bathroom

I chose to screw a metal one to the door that matches the hardware in my bathroom instead of using a cheap-looking plastic Command hook so that it would look like it belonged and add rather than detract from the value of the RV.

I've not had any issues with it coming loose, even though the door is hollow.

DIY Hooks On Bathroom Wall

We love what RV renovator Rachel Reed did to create storage and style to her RV bathroom! She found hooks that matched her RV decor and attached them to a strip of wood, making them more secure. Now her wall is perfect for drying towels or hanging your robe.

Over-the-Door or Wall Mounted Jewelry Cabinet

This cabinet can be hung on a door or mounted on the wall. It's made for jewelry, but it can also fit makeup and other small bottles. Plus when closed it doubles as a mirror.

  • Specialized Jewelry Cabinet: You deserve this well-constructed and designed jewelry cabinet from SONGMICS. The solid MDF body is for long-term use and the full-length mirror is framed to avoid leaving fingerprints on it every time you use the cabinet

Using Cabinet Doors for Adding Storage to Your RV Bathroom

Cabinet doors are another good place to add extra storage.

Make sure you measure the width of any over-cabinet organizers to make sure they will fit on your cabinet door and allow plenty of clearance on both sides for the door to swing shut.

I have two of these towel bars – one on a cabinet door for my hand towel, and one on the inside of my shower door where I hang a towel I use as a bath mat.

Adding Vertical Storage to RV Bathroom Walls

Any time an RV owner mentions that he or she hung something on the wall, someone wants to know how it was hung.

For some heavier items, the best way, used by many RV owners including myself, is to use screws. However, unless you can find a stud to drill into, you run the risk of the screw stripping out of the wall, like in the picture below.

This towel bar was either factory installed or hung by our RV's previous owners, and the small plastic wall anchors started pulling out of the holes with the constant tugging of pulling a towel off the rack.

In order to fix this towel bar, I used metal self-drilling wall anchors designed for hollow doors and now it's very sturdy. Here's a video demonstrating my fix:

I understand that some RV owners are against the idea of drilling holes in the wall.  For some other options, I suggest that you check out this post: 8 No-Drill Wall Hanging Methods.

If you would still prefer not to drill holes, there are quite a few adhesive products on the market for storing and organizing, such as these wire baskets:

One RV owner accomplished the same thing by using Command hooks to hang cheap wire baskets from the dollar store:

Once you've figured out how you plan to hang things on your walls, here are some ideas for what to hang on them.

Wicker Baskets Hung on Walls

Hanging a pair of cute baskets on your wall would be a good way to add extra storage in your RV bathroom, like these RV owners did:

Organization Rail with Hooks

Ikea bathroom organizers
by Robyn Chilton Crowhurst

These hanging storage buckets were purchased at Ikea. If you aren't near an Ikea, you can also get this rail storage system (called “Fintorp”) on Amazon….or one like it that's cheaper.

A similar system was improvised in this RV by attaching a wire to Mason jars and an inexpensive plastic basket and hanging them from a towel bar. You could try this idea using an adhesive towel bar and S hooks if drilling holes is a concern.

Shoe Organizers Used to Add Storage to Bathroom Walls

One creative RV owner added non-permanent shelving to her bathroom by hanging a closet organizer from a tension rod.

As I mentioned before, shoe organizers can be cut up and used in various locations throughout an RV.

A wine rack like this one is a good RV towel storage option and looks nice on the wall, especially if your towels follow a particular color theme.

Adding Storage to the Bathroom Vanity

Many items in a bathroom need to be within easy reach of the sink.  Here are some ways to maximize the space in that area without putting things away each time you hit the road.

Filling the Gap Between the Sink and Shower

The owners of this RV were constantly having things fall into the space between the sink and shower where they were difficult to reach, so they added an extension to the countertop that not only prevents things from falling but adds extra space to set things. Notice their use of a wire caddy as wall storage.

Here is another idea for utilizing that same area, an otherwise useless gap between the shower and cabinet:

If you like to use bar soap, you can free up space on the counter by mounting a soap dish to the wall. Okay, I'll be honest—I just really love this soap dish!

Drawers for Organizing Small Items

These wooden drawers could be mounted to the bottom of a cabinet for storing things like cotton balls, ponytail holders, and contact lenses.

  • MODULAR STORAGE: Free standing storage with 4 drawers is perfect for vanities, dressers, bathroom, craft room, office, dorm and more. Great for holding hair supplies, q-tips, makeup, office supplies, craft supplies, jewelry, accessories

Another idea for storing small items is plastic drawers like these. You could use acrylic mounting tape to stick them to your countertop to keep them from sliding around.

Wire Shelf Mounted Above Corner Sink

by LeeAnn Creasman Baker‎

The owners of this RV cut the legs off a corner shelf, spray painted it, and hung it using Command hooks. A couple of adhesive corner wire shelves would work, too.

Around the Toilet

Toilet Paper Storage

I love this style of basket for extra toilet paper storage that is both cute and functional. Or, if you're a toilet reader, you could keep magazines in the basket as well.

Another toilet paper storage option: this is actually a cheap plastic bag holder from Ikea (also available on Amazon).

And an over-toilet shelf like this one would be a good way to make use of empty wall space above the toilet.  You could use some pieces of acrylic mounting tape to adhere it to the wall and keep it from tipping over while your RV is moving.

RV Bathroom Cabinet Organization

by Deanna Queen-Imbro

The owner of this RV added plexiglass to keep items that have shifted around during transit from falling out of the cabinet when the doors are opened.  These could be easily installed using clear acrylic mounting tape, which is easily removable.

(I know I've mentioned this mounting tape several times…I use it for everything!)

Small organizational baskets, which can be purchased at Dollar Tree or Walmart, can help save space in a cabinet and keep things from shifting around.  Command hooks can be used to mount them on the back wall of a cabinet to make use of vertical space, like I did in my RV medicine cabinet, shown below:

Here's an example shared by another RV owner:

by Amanda Rutherford

You don't have to buy plastic organizers for your cabinets…this RV owner repurposed Kleenex boxes to organize a cabinet in her RV.

Hooks on the Back of a Cabinet Door

Necklaces hung on the back of a medicine cabinet door in an RV bathroom

Even the back of a cabinet mirror can be used for storage! This wasn't originally my idea, but I decided to try it.

I hung necklaces on the back of my medicine cabinet door using these Command hooks (which I had already spray-painted for a different project). If you do this, just be sure to stick the hooks where they won't bump the shelves when you close the cabinet.

One RV owner who tried this idea taped a sheet of bubble wrap to the back of the mirror to keep her necklaces from banging against the hard surface every time the door was opened and closed.  A piece of felt would probably work nicely for that purpose as well.

Another way to use the back of the mirror for storage is to attach adhesive magnetic tape to the back of a cabinet door to hold small metal items such as bobby pins and hair clips, as shown below.

  1. These are such clever tips … love the plexi glass to hold items on the shower shelves. My in-laws live in an RV, and I loved everything about staying there except the bathroom which was so small. These ideas would make it so much more doable!
