RV Bathroom Organization

I’m blessed with an RV bathroom that has a decent amount of storage. The cabinet over the vanity has plenty of space for bottles and small containers, and there is a decent amount of space under the sink, too. What’s missing are drawers to hold all the little pieces a woman tends to accumulate in her bathroom, from hair accoutrements to nail files. I’ve been using a plastic storage bin by the shower, but that space has slowly been encroached upon by clothing and I want to replace that ugly plastic thing with a proper dresser.

From almost day one, I knew exactly what I needed to perfect the storage in the bathroom, but finding the item was incredibly difficult. It needed to be see-through and preferably mesh rather than vinyl or plastic. I couldn’t find a see-through one, never mind mesh, and I started to just look for long slender boxes to fit into the over-sink cabinet.

While wandering aimlessly around Liquidation World today after looking at their furniture offerings, I found IT!!! And for just $10 to boot.

I’ll need to make some adjustments since it’s a bit too big for the space, but behold the ‘over door pocket organizer’!

I’ve obviously set it up so that the pockets face into the toilet room so as to not spoil the aesthetics of the dressing room.

It’s made to hang on hooks that go around the top and bottom of the door, but once I make the necessary nips and tucks I will screw the organizer to the door so that it lies more neatly and also to not have those hooks protruding on the other side.

If your RV has a solid wood door, this is an excellent storage option.

Having found the pocket organizer, I’ll be able to move all the bathroom stuff out of the storage tower and move clothes into it. Hopefully, I’ll find a dresser soon. A very helpful guy at Home Depot told me to poke around the website seeing as some things available in larger stores could possibly be shipped to Campbell River. And while at Home Depot, I figured out exactly what I’m going to do to reduce some of the condensation problems in both the study and the loft. Stay tuned for the next riveting chapter of Extreme Makeover: RV Edition! 🙂

  • Re: Condenensation problem,have you considered a de-humidifier???We bought a smallish one(18″h x12’w x8’d) for around 200$ that takes aboue 2 qt.a day out of the air.Made a HUGE diff. in the M.H. Got it at Can.Tire b4 Christmas.There is nothing musty or damp in the closets,dramers or under the bed since. P.S. Enjoying your blog.Fred

  • Fred, I use Dri-Z-Airs which make a HUGE difference. I only have a 30A rig, so I don’t have any spare amperage for an electric dehumidifier.
