If your family is like many Australian families, caravanning and camping are the perfect way to break the monotony of everyday life and get away from it all. However, planning to spend a holiday with your family in a caravan can be an overwhelming task.
Aside from figuring out what to take along, you will need to ensure that your RV can fit everything you need while you're away from home. Unfortunately, even the largest caravans out there can suffer from a shortage of space, as they're not built to provide the square footage of a house.
Fortunately, there are a number of caravan storage solutions that can work well even in the smallest of caravans. Follow these tips to learn how you can save space when storing your belongings in a caravan.
1. Use Storage Racks
Wall-mounted storage racks allow you to take advantage of your caravan's vertical space, helping to prevent clutter and get items out of the way. You can use wall racks to store your household cleaning supplies, kitchen spices, shoes and other items that are not so heavy and can fit in the racks.
If you need great over-the-door storage for your shoes, a hanging shoe rack can serve you really well.
2. Install Hooks
Looking to create more storage in your caravan? One word can do the trick — hooks! Since they are inexpensive and easy to install, you can use hooks to store pans or cups in the kitchen and hang coats, towels and umbrellas, among several other things.
The bottom line is that hooks are your best friend in a caravan.
3. Consider Multi-Purpose Beds
When you really, really need storage, a bed with underneath drawers attached to the bedframe will offer some serious storage for bulk items such as clothes, shoes or books. You can also create storage under the bed using your empty suitcases to cut down the cost of installing built-in drawers.
Travelling and camping in a caravan is the perfect way to bond with your family during the holidays. With that said, knowing how to properly pack and store items in your caravan can help to make the most out of the available space while avoiding caravan messiness. You can save space and keep your caravan well organised by following the above-highlighted tricks. No matter how large your caravan is, keep in mind that the best way to enjoy your space is to avoid over-packing.
