When we downsized from our 42′ fifth wheel to our tiny 25′ Class C motorhome, we also had downsize our kitchen and bathroom accessories. Even though there was absolutely nothing wrong with what we had, our kitchen tools and bathroom goods didn’t fit in our tiny cabinets, storage compartments or living spaces. So, what’s a girl to do?
If you’ve ever stepped foot into any RV toy hauler, you’re sure to notice how bland, boring and brown their interiors are. The decor lacks personality and zest. While I get that RV manufacturers are purposeful in their design concepts by trying to remain neutral to appeal to everyone, I still think they could try just a little bit harder to make the interiors more stylish and less masculine. Well, we made that happen to our former Heartland Cyclone toy hauler.
Living in an RV full-time doesn’t mean we have to skip the holidays just because we live small. Though we may not have room for large centerpieces, big leafy wreaths and trailing garlands, we still make concessions and get creative. So, we’ll share some Fall decorating ideas to use in your RV or camper to bring a little festive flair.
One of the nastiest chores an RV owner must do is empty the sewage tanks. And in doing that, a variety of supplies and of course, a place to store them is an order. But, where do you store the stinky slinky. Well, we found a great storage carrier for the sewer hose that is an easy-to-install RV modification!
Kitchens in RVs, campers and boats are tiny. We all know that. But that doesn’t mean we have to compromise by limiting our kitchen necessities. It also doesn’t mean we should have to constantly worry about messes made going down the road.
But, we as RV owners, also have other concerns when it comes to storage; weight. Since our fifth wheel has limited space and weight capabilities, we had to come up with creative ways to store our kitchen essentials. So, we’ve put together our list of space saving RV kitchen space saving storage solutions based on what we use in our RV galley.
I can’t believe it’s already been over three years since we took delivery of our Heartland Landmark 365. One of the features that sold us on the Landmark was the beautiful, large, fully-functional RV kitchen. The island creates a more ample food prep surface. Oh, and that big single farmer’s sink allows for cleaning large pots and pans. However, one little issue just grated on me that needed to be updated; our kitchen faucet.
RV owners have taken RV interior decorating to a whole level making their motorhomes, travel trailers and fifth wheels more livable and appealing. They have stepped out of the dreary and drab to func tional and fab in interiordecorating. RV owners have applied the same customization they have or had in their sticks and bricks homes.
When we started our RV adventures, we had to come up with some lightweight plastic organization and storage solutions that kept our belongings tidy, dry and stowed in our fifth wheel. But, we were met with a few challenges; odd cabinet sizes and not having enough of them. In addition, we had to take into consideration of weight and movement while in transit. So we came up with better ideas to store our stuff…
Its that time when we bring out the menorahs, kinaras and nativities and celebrate the holidays with family, friends and coworkers. Its a fun event where we can decorate with sparkle and lots of cheer. As decorators, we can choose traditional red and greens, farm stand whites, hunting blacks and reds, country burlaps or….OR go bold and bright! We are going to take you inside our fifth wheel to see how we decorated OUR RV for Christmas!
I love a tidy home and prefer it to be organized. Even when I was a kid, my belongings always had their place. Its carried me all the way through my military and my adult life. I seem to have been gifted exceptional mad organizational skills. And now, I’ve channeled them into our RV. So, I asked myself, “why not share my How-To Guide to RV Organization and Storage”.
So, pour your favorite five-o’clock-somewhere, grab a comfy seat and come see how I did it…
