RV camping can be one of the most rewarding hobbies an adult can participate in. RV camping can be fun for everyone including the kids, just as long as you do it right.
No one wants to be stuck in an RV with bad weather and nothing to do. The same goes for being stuck at a terrible campground. These are just a couple things that would diminish your RV experience.
Once you experience a bad time you may not want to do it again. However, if you do it right the first time you could be setting yourself up for years of great RV camping fun.
This is why it would be essential that you know these 15 RV Camping Hacks that can help you get through the beginner stages of RVing.
15 RV Camping Hacks & Tricks
Use a curtain rod in the shower
This is actually a brilliant idea. Storage is always at a premium in the RV so if you hang a curtain rod up in your bathroom or shower you will have a great spot to hang clean clothes on a hanger.
Buy lots of bungee chords
Everything you want to travel with you will want to be tied down. This includes even tying back the cupboard doors if needed. The last thing you want is to be driving down a highway and having things rolling around on the floor or bouncing off of a couch into a window.
Use paper plates
Use paper plates where you can. This will limit the water you use in the RV. It is also a good little tip to keep those paper plates to start the campfire. You will need more than paper plates but its a good little fire starter.
Always have surgical gloves on hand
Always keep a fresh pack of surgical gloves on hand. When you are emptying your Black Water Tank you want to have gloves on. This would especially be true if you are renting an RV. Gross.
Use suction cup toothbrush holders
It is always easier to keep your tooth brush and toothpaste secure in a suction holder rather than keeping them in a ziplock bag. By keeping them in the holder it will make your bathroom look neat and tidy.
Install under cabinet LED lighting
This is one of the easiest ways to make your RV look great and actual improve its function. When you install these LED lights underneath your cupboards it will make life easier at night and make the place look better and brighter.
By having plastic hooks on the back of doors in your RV you are creating closet space. You are also eliminating your clothes from lying around on the floor. To keep things looking neat and tidy you want to have lots of hooks.
Pack a portable propane BBQ grill
Using a portable BBQ is a perfect way to guarantee you can cook without having to make the entire place dirty. Sometimes its nice to cook outside and if that is something you like to do you will certainly want one of these.
Use proper toilet paper made for RV’s
The last thing you want is a plugged up toilet in your RV. This is obvious so get the proper toilet paper.
Keep a mini vacuum on hand
Keeping a small handheld vacuum on sight is probably a wise decision. When you are eating or even inadvertently tracking sand throughout the RV you want something compact to clean it up with. These little gems are perfect for any RV.
Book your campsite well in advance
You will want to book your campsite well in advance. Especially now with COVID, you want to have your site ready to go. It is sometimes easier to stay in a parking lot but if you are a beginner why not stay at a camp site and enjoy what RV Life has to offer!
Always keep a RV Toilet Swivel on hand
Your holding tank may not be able to be emptied at every stop. When you do have the chance to empty it you want to make sure its completely empty. By using one of these you can ensure maximum space in the holding tank, which is perfect for your travels.
Switch out your RV water heater to a tankless heater
You want hot water right away and not in a few minutes. The water tanks usually fill up pretty quick so you want to make sure you are doing it right. By getting hot water quickly your life will be that much more convenient.
Use baskets to store food in fridge
Instead of having everything rolling around in the fridge while you are driving, make sure you secure it. This might one day save your eggs from getting smashed or even a pop from starting to fix when you open it.
Use a condiment carrier instead of going in and out of RV
By using a condiment carrier you will be saving energy in your RV. The most waste of energy you will have at a campsite is going in and out of the RV, so why not limit it. If you are eating outside then grab one of these to put everything in.
