Tips for Living in an RV without Feeling Cramped
Life on-the-go has become a normal phenomenon when the likes of Simon Cowell, Will Smith, and Vin Diesel along with some other celebrities have been spotted leading an RV lifestyle.
Do you think you could take on the challenge? This might seem like living in a tiny house, so here are some hacks that might help you feel less cramped while living in an RV.
1. Get rid of things you don’t need.
This is probably an obvious one, but so many people forget about it. You don’t need absolutely everything, believe me. Throw out all the unnecessary objects you stored in hopes they might get used later. Only keep the essentials.
2. Use things in multiple ways.
You probably have a thousand different outfits for all purposes, a ton of cooking appliances, and several stacks of books pertaining to one single topic. That’s enough. From now on, keep only a few changeable outfits that you feel comfortable in and don’t try to buy more. A frying pan and a pot will be more than enough for preparing food. Buy an e-reader or use your smartphone or tablet to read e-books.

3. Everything needs a place.
It often happens so that we tend to leave things not on their places, or not even assign them a place from the very beginning. And this doesn’t just go for an RV, but for a usual house too. Find a place for everything and make sure it always goes there after you used it. Don’t leave it lying around, because it will only take up unnecessary space. Don’t try to put it into a different place either – this is a bad solution if you want everything to fit in.
4. DIY storage ideas.
This actually goes not only for DIY but for storage ideas in general. There are many ways you can fit your several pairs of shoes around or under your bed. Hang and prop things around in a way that they won’t take up too much space, yet will look natural. Because of the constant movement, you will have to make sure nothing falls down. There are various sticky tapes and holders you can use for that.
5. Buy a bigger RV.
Think ahead when choosing an RV. If you already own one, consider changing it for a motorhome that has more space. The bigger the better. Of course, you can find that even small RVs can feel pretty big when exploited correctly, so don’t get discouraged if you don’t have the opportunity to get a bigger RV.
6. Make use of the outside.
While most things you own will be stored inside, there’s also the outer part of your movable home to consider.
The roof is great for stripping down big things or stuff you don’t use throughout the day.
For example, if you have a ten and a portable table that you only took with you for the sake of camping outside, then you can attach them onto your roof and take down once needed.
You don’t necessarily need to have everything inside, because some things feel good even on the roof of your RV.
Those were some things you could in order to make your RV feel less cramped.
