Top Storage Solutions for your Motorhome
One of the main attractions with motorhomes is their unique and often quirky storage solutions. Packing up your home and transporting the essentials and home comforts around on wheels is all part of the fun. Make the most of the nooks and crannies, internal cupboards, external compartments, doors, hooks and even use the shower to hang your clothes whilst driving.
Safety considerations are also important. Naturally when you’re on the road, things move around. Now you have the task of finding ways of keeping your belongings shut tightly behind cupboard doors, stopping draws from flying open or items falling off shelves.
Many choose to unpack once they have arrived at their destination and set up camp. Some use clever ties, clips and even velcro to keep kitchen utensils, bedding and other essential items in place whilst driving.
Decorating your motorhome can provide much entertainment, and gives you the opportunity to put your own stamp on it. Used motorhomes are often perfect investments because they allow you to put your DIY skills to good use and decorate to your personal taste. If you’re looking for inspiration on how to make the most of your motorhome, here are a few space-saving hacks and innovative storage solutions that won’t cost the earth.
1. Make Things Stick
Velcro is a wonderful invention, and you can use it throughout your motorhome to ensure everything stays put in its rightful place. Use it for keeping all of your remote controls in an accessible spot or even to make sure your cups don’t take a tumble en route.
2. Stay Organised
An organiser that attaches to the back of the front seats can provide much-needed extra storage for the essentials that you need to keep close to hand. Multiple pockets will create plenty of handy storage and you aren’t restricted by space. As everything will have a set place, you’ll always know where things are.
3. External Storage
Motorhomes have various external lockers that are perfect for items you might not want to keep inside, such as dirty wellies, a bucket or cleaning equipment. Increasingly, garages are becoming a very popular feature in motorhome design, offering even more storage options.
4. Make the Most of Your Doors
Command hooks are so useful. Attach a few inside your kitchen cupboards to hang some of your utensils on and some to the back of your door to hold coats and scarves. Motorhoming is ideal for creating ingenious ways of transporting your belongings securely.
Shoe organisers are, of course, brilliant for storing all of your footwear, but they are also useful in many other situations. Consider hanging one from your bathroom ceiling to store towels and toiletries or from the side of your bed to act as a nightstand.
6. Handy Solutions
With a little bit of DIY know-how, there are a myriad of different storage solutions that can be achieved. Drawers that slide out from under your table can be used to store cutlery or other odds and ends, and aren’t difficult install. A slide-out chopping board would be the perfect addition to your kitchen, and drawers under all seating will provide a lot of additional storage that, otherwise, would just be unused space.
With a little bit of imagination and creativity, you’ll find that your motorhome storage doesn’t need to be as limited as you may initially think.
