Genius RV Bathroom Storage Ideas and Organization Hacks
Corner Medicine Cabinet Organizer
Whether in your RV bathroom or kitchen, all is not lost in your overhead corner cabinets. We’ve found a great cabinet storage solution that’s perfect for overhead corner cabinets!
For example, in our RV’s bathroom, everything would come tumbling out each time we would open the cabinet after a day on the road. But, I found a clear lazy susan to store all of my bottles, jars, and tubes. It keeps them accessible yet organized and secure. These lazy Susans are also perfect for the RV kitchen, art and office supplies, and small maintenance supplies intact yet easily accessible.
Cabinet Toothbrush Holder
We bought this cool toothbrush wall mount holder and installed them inside the bathroom cabinet to keep our toothbrushes clean and out of the way. The lid slides down over the toothbrushes keeping them germ-free and the toothbrushes intact during travel. These can be mounted in the shower or on the mirror. It also comes with sturdy two-sided foam tape to adhere to most surfaces. It’s a great bathroom storage solution for any motorhome or camper!
Essential Oils Storage Rack
We’ve been using our essential oils as a part of our wellness for many years. But, living in an RV presents some space restraints. We wanted an safe way to store them but also keep them easily accessible.
So, we bought a tabletop nail polish rack to set each essential bottle into. And, to keep the rack from sliding around during travel days, we put small balls of mounting putty on each bottom corner and stuck it to the clean counter surface.
I also keep a smaller essential oil bottle holder inside my kitchen cabinet to hold my favorite culinary essential oils.
Most hold both, the 5 ml and 15 ml bottles as well as roll-on bottles just perfectly. However, just make certain you verify dimensions of each organizer to ensure their bottle size capability.
RV Bathroom Countertop Organizer
A great way to organize your RV bathroom essentials is with an unbreakable acrylic bathroom container system that comes with preprinted bathroom labels.
The thick and durable, firmed base construction are perfect for storing cotton swabs, cotton balls, makeup pads, jewelry, soap bombs, etc. And, you can display on your bathroom vanity with a small rubber mat to keep it from sliding during transit. The jars won’t break or shatter, making them perfectly safe to use your RV bathroom or boat’s head. Again, if you want to keep them on your bathroom or bedroom counter, simple adhere mounting putty to the bottom to keep them from moving during travel days.
Plastic Drawer Storage Sets
Stackable plastic drawer storage units are an RVers best friend! They’re great because they’re lightweight and stack according to size. And you can store them in cabinets and closets!
We’ve had our smaller plastic drawers throughout our RV fifth wheel and now inside the cabinets inside our small Class C motorhome. What’s great is when we cross-decked to each RV, we simply picked up the whole stackable drawer system and placed it into our new RV’s cabinets!
In our RV bathroom, we store all our first aid and beauty supplies in these drawer units under the sink. And, in our laundry closet of our fifth wheel, we kept larger size plastic stackable drawer units to store household tools, RV repair supplies, and other essentials. I’d identify contents in each drawer using a label maker.
Plastic drawer storage units come in several different sizes and can be stacked. Just measure the inside of your cabinets to find the perfect size drawers and stack them accordingly.
Pro Tip: While each stacking drawer does allow for nesting on top of each other, to keep them from disassembling, I put a little mounting putty under each corner of each drawer set and then seated them onto each other.
All-Purpose Suction Hooks
Bathroom suction cup hooks are another RVer’s best friend! They can be used in your RV bathroom and kitchen. But also, they can also be used outside of your RV! They create a vacuum seal to stay on securely. Plus, they’re easily removable and these reusable suction hooks will not damage your shower walls or fiberglass surfaces. And, steam or moisture will not make the hook falling down. They even hold up to 6 pounds each!
Just stick the suction cup to a clean and dry smooth surface like fiberglass shower stalls, glass, mirrors or even your fiberglass exterior and snap down. They’re great for having wet bath towels, personal shower loofahs, back scrubber brush, the guys’ soap on the rope or even your shower bottle lanyard! You can even store your squeegee on these suction cup hooks!
Amazon Reviewer: “We are using the suction cups to hang a tarp skirt around our camper. We full time in the camper so they will remain there through the winter. We placed the suction cups on a smooth-ish surface along the bottom on a 50 degree day. I was worried about the surface not being completely smooth like metal or glass. The suction cups are holding strong. I haven’t had to re apply them in over 2 weeks. Occasionally one might pop off but I am extremely satisfied with how they are performing.”
Wall Mount Organizer Storage Holder
How cool are these wall mount organizers for your RV bathroom storage? These cool hideaway wall storage solutions are dust-proof, waterproof, removable, and easy to clean. They can be adhered to the mirror, wall or cabinet surface with self-adhesive. You can also use them in your RV kitchen or boat galley too! Store and hide your little items easily.

ANOTHER PRO TIP: Instead of using the adhesive, we use Command Velcro instead. That way they are easily removable to clean behind the organizer. But also, the organizers are easier to load up before mounting.
Over the Door Organizer
While we all enjoy those camp hair don’t care days are great, there’s times the ladies may want to give do up your do! But, we all know hair care appliances such as your blow dryer, rechargeable flat iron and curling iron are a challenge to store in small cabinets or drawers. Tangled cords will become a thing of the past storing your hair care tools in an over cabinet door hair styling organizer.
Four compartments hold all your hair appliances you need for a great hair day, while the basket helps to keep cords organized. This bathroom storage idea installs instantly by hanging over cabinet doors; either outside for instant access or on the inside for discreet storage. Plus, the compact design lets you maximize your storage space without cutting into already limited bathroom space.
Under Cabinet Sliding Drawer Storage
In an RV where space is premium, we like to keep our stuff stowed and out of sight. But also, we’d prefer not having to reorganized after a long day of traveling on bumpy roads.
This convenient 2-level basket organizer maximizes small spaces with sliding drawers for easy access and stowing items when not in use under the cabinet. You can organize and store a wide variety of bathroom supplies such as a spare roll of toilet tissue, butt wipes, Venture Wipes and other toiletries. Or, keep your cleaning supplies in these cool under-cabinet drawer systems just the same.
Over-the-Cabinet-Door Hand Towel Holder
An over-the-cabinet-door hand towel holder that slips over the cabinet door top is a great RV bathroom storage idea because we are so limited on counter space. And we all know that bunched up towels lying on the counter anyways don’t dry. Then, they become a nasty breeding ground for bacteria, mold and mildew. But because these are hung on lower cabinets, there’s no excuse for kids not washing their hands or hanging the towels up after use. These cabinet towel holders are also great for your RV kitchen or boat galley!
Shower Liquid Dispenser
The last thing you need while driving down the road in your motorhome or camper is all of your shower bottles flying around. You can totally eliminate all your shower bottle clutter by mounting a convenient 3 chamber shower liquid dispenser for your bath gel, shampoo and conditioner. Or, you can switch it up by filling them also with shower shave cream or multiple scent shower gels.
This shower liquid dispenser wall unit installs in minutes without special tools or drilling into walls. Each chamber lifts off the wall for easy cleaning and refilling. It includes handy storage hooks for to hang your razor, face cloth and loofah.
If you don’t like a three chamber shower liquid dispenser, you could opt for a 1 chamber shower dispenser or 2 chamber shower dispenser.
And, for your bathroom sink area, a wall mount hand soap dispenser eliminates bottles on the countertop.
PRO TIP: We personally don’t use the two-sided tape that comes with any wall mount product because they’re notorious for coming unadhered. Instead, anytime we need something to secure to the wall permanently without worrying about possible messes, we use 3M heavy duty adhesive tape.
Over-the-Door Pocket Storage Organizers
One of the best RV bathroom storage ideas we’ve found is an over-the-door pocket storage unit. You can store anything and everything in them. Everything is accessible but put away.
Items you can store in over-the-door pocket storage organizers:
- Bug Repellent
- Hair Spray
- Personal Cleansing Wipes
- Feminine Hygiene Supplies
- Venture Wipes
- Makeup Remover Cleansing Wipes
- Antibacterial Hand Wipes
- Microban Spray
- Extra Toiletries
- First Aid Supplies
- Collapsible Umbrellas
- Rain Gear (Rolled)
- Water Bottles
- Bear Spray
- Turkish Dish or Hand Towels (Rolled)
- Face Cloths (Rolled)
- Pet Leash
PRO TIP: Below are some other great over-the-door storage ideas for your RV. For size dimensions and addition information, click on each door pocket storage image:
We do suggest though that you be mindful of the weight you pack into these as to not pull the door out of whack; not allowing it to open or close properly. Keep this for lighter weight and trial size items. Also, be aware, these over-the-door pocket storage ideas may not work on sliding or pocket doors.
But even so, these do make cool organizers for your motorhome, fifth wheel or camper.

Our RVs bathroom has the least storage of any place in the entire RV, and it just so happens to be the place where I have the most stuff to store!
These tips are great – I already use an over-the-sink shelf, I installed a medicine cabinet and use a shower rack… but what I’d really like to implement from this list are the toothbrush holders and suction cups! I could just hang everything… 🙂 Thank you!
Hi Carrie, thank you for reading! OMG, we LOVE those toothbrush holders. Of all pet peeves of ours are leaving our toothbrushes out in the open air where the toilet is flushed, noses are blown, sneezes, odors, etc. When I found those, I was happy dancing. I hope you do too! Enjoy! Happy Trails! -Dan & Lisa
I wish my tiny camper had a sink in the bathroom! We just got it and I felt blessed to have a toilet and bathtub/shower. I really am happy to be getting a camper and no more tent camping! We are 59 and 60. It would just wear us out.
Hi Tracie, thanks for reading! Congrats on getting your camper! We tent camped twice and found it’s not our game. Our backs on the ground…yeah! We sure do love the comforts of home like hot running water, flush toilet, dry comfy beds, sinks and countertops. But we can say, in our experience, tent camping sure did teach us a lot. -Lisa & Dan
