Ashley Mann spent three years living full time in a 38-foot, 5th-wheel RV with her husband Josiah and their cat, Kitty. Her favorite thing about RV life is the challenge of finding the perfect way to organize a space, and she loves seeing all the creative and clever ways people come up with to customize their RVs.
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 Organizerclutter
This pocket organizer comes in several different sizes and colors, is mounted with included adhesive snaps (no drilling holes!), and as the name suggests, is 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.
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.
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!
Net pockets can turn any vertical space into storage! This RVer has perfectly organized their outdoor kitchen setup.
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.

Stretch cargo netting can be used to turn the top of a cabinet into storage.
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.
Avoid the avalanche when you arrive at your destination by placing a net across your RV cabinets!
Add extra storage to the back of a cabinet door:
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.
If you have small children sleeping on bunks in your RV, this heavy-duty bunk bed safety net can keep them from rolling out of the bed at night. (It’s sturdy enough for adults, too!)
By unbuckling the net from the ceiling, you can easily access items stored on the bunk or tuck it under the mattress for storage when it’s not in use.
Do you have a bunk in your RV that you use for storage? If so, the bunk bed safety net will hold items in place while you’re driving. I know many RVers who store computers, screens, and other expensive equipment on the RV beds during travel. These nets will keep your expensive toys safe while driving.
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.
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.
You’ll never be searching for a bottle opener again with this one mounted inside your RV! It even has a magnet that catches the cap for you so you don’t have to pick it up off the floor.
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.)

If you’re short on closet space, this wall-mounted pop-up clothing rack might be just the solution you’re looking for. This rack can be mounted on an interior wall or on the RV’s exterior as a place to dry wet towels or bathing suits after swimming.
10. LCD TV Mounts
Mount a TV or computer monitor wherever you want!
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!).
- THE EASIEST ASSEMBLY: No need for drills or screws, this magnetic knife holder can be mounted in seconds with the improved self-adhesive magnetic strip.If you do decide to drill, the package includes FREE dowels and screws.
As intimidating as it might be to have your sharp knives exposed on your wall, magnetic knife holders are great ways to free up drawer space and organize your kitchen.
And—knock on wood, throw salt over your shoulder—I’ve never heard of any knives falling during driving.
Keep your countertops clutter-free with an under-the-sink caddy to keep your cleaning supplies handy. Lightweight bottles fall often when driving, so these are great for keeping bottles upright and closed.
Spices can easily fill a cabinet (and get rocked around while you drive!) This magnetic setup saves space and for the RV chef, keeps spices handy.
