Organize Your RV with Self Storage
If you utilize an outdoor or covered RV storage space, you understand just how valuable self storage can be to regaining valuable space around your home. But why stop at parking your RV at a self storage facility? Why not keep all of your road trip essentials in a storage unit nearby so you can quickly hit the road when the time is right? Here are three ways an additional storage unit can help keep your RV organized and ready for a road trip.
Keep Small Appliances Stored in Your RV
When you’re taking a road trip in an RV, you’ll likely get ready in your RV. With that in mind, keeping small appliances you use regularly stored on your RV will save you a lot of time. These include hair dryers, straightening irons, coffee makers, electric kettles, and more. Stashing chargers for your phone and other electronic devices on your RV will also ensure you have a way to charge your phone on the trip without wondering whether you’ve forgotten your charger while packing.
An Additional Tip on Small Appliances
It’s tempting to bring your appliances from home, but it’s actually better to purchase smaller appliances for your RV or delegate your spare appliances to your RV. Having more compact appliances will save on valuable space and cut down on the hassle of having to tote appliances between home and your RV.
Store Bedding in a Sealed Tote
No one wants to sleep on a bed that wasn’t recently made, especially if you’ve left your RV in storage during the off-season. Instead, keep your bed stripped down to the mattress cover and store your fresh bedding in a storage container in your nearby unit. This will ensure you have fresh bedding ready to go for your trip. No additional packing required!
Additional Storage Container Tips
When organizing items for your RV, store your items in a clear container so you can easily find what you’re looking for in your storage unit. This is especially useful if you have a storage unit you use to store more than your RV supplies. To take it a step further, labeling your containers will also help you quickly distinguish which containers are specifically for your RV.
Keep Recreational Equipment in Your Storage Unit
If you’re the outdoorsy type, you probably have a good bit of camping or outdoor gear you bring with you on your RV trips. Whether it be your mountain bike for trail-riding, your kayak, or your tent, all of that gear is a lot not only to keep at your house but a lot to bring to your RV when you’re loading up. Keeping your items in storage until they’re ready to be strapped to your RV will save you lots of loading time.
