20 Simple Tips for RV Camping

RV Camping 20 Tips

RV Camping is a superb family experience. It offers a superior opportunity to see the site close up, to spend more time with friends and family, and to visit friends and family. Below is a list of 20 tips that will make your camping trips easier and more pleasant when you put them into practice.

 1. Shoe Rack Shower Storage

RVs don’t have extra room. Cloth shoe racks like you hang in your closet are an efficient way to organize items. They take little space. Hang one over your shower curtain to keep bath items together.

2. Command Hooks Help to Make Curtains Easy to Hang

Need a temporary curtain to make a separation in your RV. No need to drill holes into the RV frame. Just use Command Hooks to hang curtains.

3. Effective Tank Cleaner

RV toilets will always be dreaded to clean. A simple fix is a cup of Borax detergent and 1/2 cup of Calgon Water Softener. The Borax helps control odor and the water softener helps to keep waste from sticking to the walls and in the waste tank.

4. Magnetic Whiteboards

Dry-erase boards are useful for many things. But they can be used to keep you safe. For example, when you set up in a new campground; write the following information on it in case of emergency: name of campground, address, place number, telephone number of the campground, and any other helpful details. If you have an emergency in the middle of the night everyone will know where to find it.

5. Improve Your Wi-Fi Signal

Wi-Fi is in most campsites today. But it’s not always easy to obtain a good signal. A simple way to improve the signal is an easy $20 fix. Buy a Wi-Fi Reception Booster. It does wonders.

6. Make a Collapsible Garbage Can

RVs have less storage so a sizable trashcan is tough for traveling. However, utilizing a collapsible laundry basket constitutes a perfect workaround that stores away easily.

7. Square Space-saving Containers

Square containers take less space than round containers. They fit together better and don’t move around like round ones while moving.

8. Water Proof Tissue Box

When cardboard Tissue Boxes get wet, the tissues become useless. An easy fix is a Tupperware container with a slot that is cut in it to hold the tissue box.

9. Blackout Curtains Keep the Light Out

After a long drive, you may be tired and want to take a nap. But the bright daylight might likely not allow you to sleep. Blackout curtains are superb for keeping the light out. You can attach them with Velcro. Needless to say, you can also use attractive curtains when you aren’t trying to block out the light when you’re wanting to nap during daylight.

Non-slip liner is ideal for drying dishes so you don’t have a soupy mess. It also gives the dishes a good surface so as not to move around.

Glow tape is an easy safety step to keep people from stumbling or falling when it’s dark. Use it on steps and inside the RV where someone might trip and fall. Consider using it on pathways leading from the RV if you deem it important for the family.

14. Keep Condiment packets when you eat out

Instead of throwing away free condiments such as salt and pepper, keep them in a small container to save space.

Wasps are attracted to all kinds of food scents. To keep them away, take a dog’s flea collar, cut it into pieces, and put the pieces throughout your RV.This is a simple solution to an unpleasant annoyance.

16. Use a Folding Rack for Drying Clothes

To avoid drying clothes in the launder mat, use a folding drying rack to dry clothes. Place it in the shower when not using it. Not only does this simple fix save money but it also saves time.

17. Use Anti-Fatigue Floor Mats to Increase Comfort and Insulation

The mats come in squares, usually 6 together. These squares are a perfect solution to save your feet plus help to insulate the RV.

18. Use Suction Cup Containers to hold similar items

These suction cup containers are ideal for keeping writing materials, hair products, kid’s toys, and a host of other small items to avoid clutter.

19. Use this Easy Soap Holder

Put a bar of soap in the leg of a panty or knee high hose. Tie it to a water faucet in the shower or sink. It’s cleaner and also simpler to find the soap.

My name is Melvin A. Turner from Dallas Texas and I have a deep passion and love for fishing and kayaking. It is my love for the sport cultivated by my dad, coupled with a wide range of challenges I faced in the sport that led me to attend a kayak basic training. Over the years, I have tried and tested all kinds of different kayaks available in different environments to determine the best in each location. The experience and skill I have gained over the years up to date is invaluable. I look to share this knowledge and experiences gained over the years with those who share the passion for kayaking with me.
