Maximizing Your RV Bathroom Storage Space
It’s no big secret that finding storage space for your RV bathroom can be a daunting task. When it comes to maximizing space, and getting things better organized, think outside the box. Go vertical. Find a storage solution for every nook and cranny of available space.
The main goal is to not only make the most of the space you DO have, but to also make your home-away-from-home just a little more comfortable for you and your family.
We hope the tips listed below spark your creative mind and inspire you to get in your RV bathroom and start organizing.
Compact Clothes Hamper/Laundry Bag
To keep your RV neat and tidy for the weekend, or longer, having a place to keep your dirty clothes is a must. Not only do these compact clothes hampers or laundry bags save much needed space, but they also keep your clothes in one place saving time when unloading the camper. The harder task is going to be getting everyone on-board to the idea of putting their clothes in them, and not on the floor.
We use a hamper like the one pictured below in our travel trailer. It fits perfectly in the small space between the shower and the wall in our RV bathroom.
Curved Shower Rod
Installing a curved shower rod like the one pictured below can help give you the feeling of a bigger shower. The added elbow room will keep shower curtain from sticking to your wet body as you try to wash the day away.
In our camper, we have a curved shower door that creates a wide-open space for showering. In our bathroom at home, we made sure to install a curved shower rod for the same reason.
With the increased size of your shower, a suction cup shower caddy can help increase the storage space in your RV bathroom. Another great choice for storage space is a bathroom organizer that hangs on the dry side of the shower curtain.
Think of it in terms of a makeshift storage cabinet that you can hang on outside your shower.
Another great option for your toiletries is a portable mesh shower tote. In addition to being able to hang in the shower, they are also great when you want to use the campground showers or bathhouses instead of filling up your RV waste tanks.
Use Wall Space
Making the most of the vertical wall space in your RV bathroom is a great way to maximize storage space. Try hanging toothbrush holders or other RV bathroom organizers on the wall next to the sink. Not only does this give you extra storage space, but it also frees up much needed space on your bathroom vanity.
Command hooks are another RV bathroom must-have when it comes to using wall space to maximize storage space.
If you prefer to have your toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc., on the countertop, options are available for these as well.
Travel Size Your RV Bathroom
If you are a weekend RVer, there is no need to stuff those large bottles of shampoos and conditioners into your tiny bathroom. To maximize the storage space in your RV bathroom, try looking at the travel section of your local supermarket or department store.
If you can’t find the brand names you are used to using, try filling these small silicon travel bottles with your favorite products and refilling them when needed.
In addition to the hair care products, the travel section also has a variety of travel size lotions, cotton swabs, soaps, and deodorants. These smaller products take less space to store in your RV bathroom cabinets and, as a result, are guaranteed to increase you storage space.
These travel sized items fit nicely in your medicine cabinet or tucked neatly in one of the shower caddies listed above.
Over The Door Hangers
We not only use these in our camper, but in our home as well. These simple over-the-door hooks are a great space-saving hack to store your towels.
The over-the-door towels racks pictured below are a great choice if the door hooks do not suit your needs. Make sure you measure your RV bathroom door to make sure one like this will fit. Another option is the Command shower hook.
Bins, Bins, Bins
Not only do small bins help maximize your cabinet storage space, but they also help keep your RV bathroom more organized. By keeping certain items grouped together in these small plastic bins, you will be able to find what you need, when you need it.
Under Sink Storage
With a small vanity you might be extremely limited for extra space under your RV bathroom sink. In fact, our under-sink storage is just big enough to store a few extra rolls of TP and maybe some black tank sanitizer.
However, if you do have room under your sink, consider putting plastic drawer organizers in the cabinet for extra storage.

RV Bathroom Trash Can (with lid)
A must-have RV bathroom accessory is a small trash can with a lid. If you don’t flush your toilet paper when camping, the lid is a huge must-have. Many RVers will not flush their paper to avoid the dreaded black tank clog. Hey, it happens…
This slim plastic trash can with lid will fit into any size RV bathroom and is available in white, green, and gray. In addition, this trash can is equipped with a built-in toilet brush to save even more space in your RV bathroom.
Medicine Cabinet Organizer
A medicine cabinet organizer will not only help keep your things organized, but it will also keep your things secured on travel days. How many times have you popped open the medicine cabinet in your RV bathroom just to have half of everything stored in there come tumbling out into the sink?
At the end of the day, maximizing the storage space in your RV bathroom doesn’t have to be complicated. By using a few of the tips listed above and thinking outside the box, you will be well organized and will be using ALL available space in your RV bathroom.
