It’s easy for a tiny home on wheels to feel cluttered fast. RV organization is key to making your next road trip a breeze.

We’re suckers for clever RV gadgets and accessories. In this article, we’re sharing the best products for de-cluttering and organizing your camper.

1. “Get Wet” Mesh Shower Organizer

This pocket organizer comes in several different sizes and colors and is mounted with included adhesive snaps (no drilling holes!). As the name suggests, they are ideal for the shower since they’re made of a type of mesh that drains easily and dries quickly.

They’re not just for the shower, though.  Here’s a picture of one hung on the bathroom door:

RV showers are notorious for not offering convenient storage options that will stay in place while driving, making this an absolute must-have.

If you’re not a fan of the mesh look and aren’t afraid of a little DIY project, consider building a shelf! This one was built with a few pieces of scrap wood. The hooks to hang loofahs and scrub brushes are a brilliant addition!

2. Bar Soap Holder

Staying in the shower, adding your soap bar to a mesh bag, or even on a shower shelf is a recipe for mess! Mount an adhesive bar soap holder on your shower wall to keep your soap separated and dry.

Most options for soap holders are plain plastic, but we like this stylish one from Amazon:

  • 【 Simple & Stylish Soap Holder 】Those soap bar holders suit for various home style. Slotted design able to drain water naturally, create a clean and tidy home.

3. RV Shower Tote

RVers who use campground shower facilities (or at a gym after a workout) will also appreciate this mesh shower tote that can be hung in your RV for storage, then folded up and easily transported.

In the shower, you can hang it on the shower head to easily access items when you’re ready to use them.

4. Wall-Mounted Laundry Bag

This wall-mounted laundry bag can be hung on a door, wall, side of a cabinet, or bed, and when you’re ready to take it to the laundromat, you simply turn the clips to remove it and close the drawstring!  If you get two of them, your laundry will be presorted too!

There’s never room in an RV to store a large laundry basket, so a laundry bag is a great solution.

This would also be a great way to store beach toys!

5. Tiny Kitchen Shelves

Whether you’re looking for function or decor, we love these tiny shelves for your RV kitchen!

This beautiful kitchen renovation found creative ways to make use of a small slice of open wall by adding these shelves as well as hooks! We love these ones from Amazon that include a towel bar:

6. Mesh Pockets & Gear Nets

Net pockets can turn any vertical space into storage! This RVer has perfectly organized their outdoor kitchen setup.

I especially love the slat wall panel above with hooks and organizers for perfectly sorted tools. (I couldn’t find that exact slatwall panel, but here’s one on Amazon.)

Net pockets come in a variety of sizes and styles and are a good way to capture space that would normally be wasted.

This little cell phone pocket is adhesive, so it can be stuck anywhere—like on the wall beside your bed or next to the driver’s seat.

7. Couch Arm Organizers

Keep items handy with a small bamboo arm rest! This anti-slip one is great for setting down a cup or a book.

But I prefer this one with a secure spot for my coffee mug!

You can also use the netting to hold items in place on a shelf:

Mounted on the wall by the front door, stretch cargo nets provide a handy place to store bug spray, slip-on shoes, a flashlight, and other things you want to keep handy.

You can really get creative with how and where to put these nets, because they come in different sizes, and if you can’t find one the right size, there’s also a tutorial for customizing them to the exact size you need.

9. Baskets!

All of the baskets. Wall mounted. Hanging. In cabinets. They are probably the most handy and most commonly used item on this list!

10. Furniture Tie Down

One concern that keeps many RVers from replacing their factory furniture with residential furniture is that sofas, tables, and chairs might slide around while the camper is in motion. This would create a huge mess!

But with these furniture tie-downs, you can screw a D-ring to the floor of your RV and attach a furniture strap to hold large items in place during travel.

11. Mounted Bottle Opener

With this one mounted inside your RV, you’ll never be searching for a bottle opener again! You can get a normal one on Amazon, but how great is this for your camper?

  • Gold Cast Iron Grizzly Bear Bottle Cap Opener Measures Apx. 4 1/4" tall by 2 1/2" wide

Not a must-have, but a cute feature to add! I’ve also seen tailgaters install these on the outside frame of their campers for pregame barbeques. (Just be sure to seal the screw holes to prevent rain or snow from entering your RV.)

12. Pop-up Rack for Hanging Clothing

If you’re short on closet space, this wall-mounted pop-up clothing rack might be just the solution you’re looking for. I love the additional hooks and shelf built into this one!

13. LCD TV Mounts

Mount a TV or computer monitor wherever you want!

Flat-screen TV mounts, including an under-cabinet mount that allows a small TV to flip up and out of the way when not in use, have a few great uses.

Commonly, you’ll see it used to hold a computer monitor in place as you’re bumping down the road. There are also multi-location mounts that allow you to transport a TV from one location to another (like outside!).
