RV Storage Reno

I recently decided enough was enough with this mess!  Our storage compartment was out of control.  With a little brainstorming and the use of scraps around my house, I was able to convert our front storage compartment into a space that is easy to use!

First step was taking everything out!  It was a disaster: grilling kit, tools, chairs, pool toys, charcoal, fishing poles, you name it.

The current design was just a huge rectangular space.  We used some plastic bins, but they were still chaotic.  You weren’t ever sure which item was in which bin.  I needed a way that I could easily grab tools for set up and maintenance.  This gave me the idea to use pegboard.  A few 3/4″ screws and some finishing washers and the pegboard fit perfectly!  If you don’t have a table saw, Home Depot will cut pegboard for you.

I also decided to suspend a plastic bin on either side that could slide in and lock into place.  The passenger side bin is used for tools while the driver side is for cleaning supplies.

 

 

I added two push-button lights from Home Depot ($5.90).  It is crazy that modern RVs don’t have lighting in the storage compartments.

I organized my tools on the peg-board.  Believe it or not, this was quite time consuming.  Then I added two boards with circle cut-outs for hanging fishing poles and an awning rod.

  Last step was to put everything back in!  The total project time was about 4 hours.

      Meredith, great question! I used 1/2’ stainless panhead screws with finishing washers. Careful with screw length so you don’t screw through the thin bed frame. Other than that it’s very easy!
