Handy storage is one of the most important things you can find for the RV lifestyle. You want to have as many compact containers as possible on an RV to hold just about anything you may need to bring with you. For instance, you could use an old Tic-Tac contain to hold a cooking spice, or you could repurpose a ketchup bottle as a mixing vessel. Be creative and find new ways to use things you would otherwise toss out.

#2 – Need to Start a Campfire? Try Corn Chips

Most RV travelers love to get outside of the rig in the evening for a cozy campfire. If you need a little help getting the fire going, corn chips are a great option. Since they contain plenty of oil, they will hold a flame long enough for your wood to get going. Sprinkle a few chips in with the rest of your fire setup and you should have success more often than not.

#3 – Dryer Sheets for Bug Defense

If you are camping in an area which is thick with bugs and bees, try placing scented dryer sheets in strategic positions around your RV. The scent of the dryer sheet is likely to be unpleasant to the critters, who may decide they would rather move on to look for food somewhere else.

#4 – Head Lamp + Gallon of Water

When you need some light inside or outside of your RV at night, try using a standard head lamp strapped on to a gallon jug of water. The light will diffuse through the water and the setup will illuminate the whole area beautifully. Of course, when not used in this application, the head lamp can be handy for walking around camp after dark.

#5 – Glow in the Dark Tape to Save Toes

Dusk and dark can make for a dangerous situation around your RV. When you don’t have enough light to see where you are walking, it is easy to trip over the many hazards that come along with a campsite. To keep yourself safe, add glow in the dark tape to things like stairs and other tripping hazards.

#6 – Suction Cups

For a variety of purposes, suction cups can be your friend when traveling in an RV. There are many different small containers and shelves which use suction cups to be secured into place. These are handy for RVs because you can easily take them down when travelling and then just pop them into place while setting up camp for the week.
