    I love these tips!! A couple of beach tricks are: I made a clothes rack out of pvc pipe. It hangs off the back ladder and all towels and wet bathing suits get hung on it and no sand from the beach ever enters the rv. It comes apart for easy storage and I have clips that fit on the outer pipe as well as clips that fit on the line itself. The other is I bought an inflatable pool and fill it with water. I put it next to the door and we step in there prior to going in rv. Takes all the dirt and sand or grass off our feet and keeps the rv much cleaner.
    Thanks for sharing your tips, I’m going to be getting the split loom tubing for ours for sure!

    I use the hanging organizer for fold up clothes too. I found it was easier to use a plastic dish pan as a basket to put on the hanging shelves to put clothes in. Works out great!!

      One of the things I love about RVers is the ability to find new uses for existing products! Just reuse something instead of getting rid of it!

    With a washer/dryer combo in my starter 1998 Fleetwood Bounder, I use that for storage of the dirty laundry.

    I use a hanging organizer in closet but the stuff ends up falling out of it by the time we get there so when I open the closet door all clothes are still in a pile at the bottom of closet. Any other suggestions?

    • Kimberly says:

      Jules, is it a hanging organizer with shelves? I use this type for heavier items, like sweatshirts or sweatpants. The heavier items tend to not fall out as much as lighter items, such as socks. The lighter items go in the pocket hanging organizers on the closet door. The other thing is to really pack them in there – if they are literally shoved in there, they are less likely to fall out during travel.

      You can also try plastic drawers instead of the hanging organizers. Just be sure to measure and make sure they fit! It may take a few attempts to get it right. http://amzn.to/2esqV9a

    in my main closet i use shoe cubes to store shorts, t shirts, on the inner door,I have mounted shoe bag with pockets to hang socks and underwear.leaving just a little hanger space for slim wind breakers and jeans,on hangers that hold 6 pair vertically. This set up allows a month of clothes, and no laundry stops! I store the dirty laundry in the “little “trunk of our Rialta.I have used the pocket shoe bag on the inside bathroom door for all the toilet product, little wires for the phone and any other small bits…………….we have tons of storage in a very small vehicle.

    • Kimberly says:

      Hi Carol! Storage is definitely available in small spaces if you just use it wisely. And it sounds like you are maximizing everything to the nth degree. Congrats! My new Tiffin came with a washer/dryer, so I don’t have to go a month unless I try to go out boondocking that long. But it is awesome you have found the room for that many clothes and can go that long.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    I hang a shower curtain rod above my shower then I can hang wet jackets or clothes they just drip into the shower

      Hi Kim! (Great name 🙂 )

      Starter RV had a rod in the shower that was perfect for hanging wet jackets and clothes. Loved it when I would come in from a rainy football game! Definitely something I still need to add to the new RV. Thanks for the reminder.
