Organizing your RV’s bathroom may seem like an overwhelming task. With RV living, there is never enough storage space in your RV to handle all of the items that you want to take with you on the road. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. Check out these RV bathroom organizing tips and tricks for maximizing space and making life easier on the road before heading to your next Harvest Hosts location.
Most RV showers don’t come with any shelving, unfortunately. This can lead to shampoo bottles falling all over the place or needing to be constantly moved back and forth from the cabinets. Finding proper shower storage can be really tricky since your RV is often in motion. The hanging style can swing around and the tension rods can fall if you hit a bump while driving. Below, we’ve listed some of the best alternatives to either of those options.
Adhesive can be an RVer’s best friend. Drilling into the thin walls of an RV can be disastrous if you accidentally drill too far, and anchors are almost always required. Drilling into a shower sounds like bad news in general. Thankfully, there are other solutions. Consider using an adhesive shower caddy to store all your shower goods. Both of these have good reviews if the directions are followed correctly.
Consider moving your existing products into pump dispensers to use this product. The holding brackets adhere to the wall and hold your pump dispensers to prevent excess clutter. This can be a great solution to storing some of your favorite products while RVing, but easily bring them back into your house.
This sleek solution can really declutter your shower. These adhesive-mounted dispensers look great and hold quite a bit of product to prevent bottles from falling all over the shower while traveling. They can also labelled to prevent any confusion, and have clear sides to check the product levels. This is a great solution for RVers who go on pretty frequent trips to avoid needing to pack and unpack these basic necessities.
Cabinets and Drawers
Many larger RVs aren’t lacking in bathroom cabinet space. However, it can be tricky to keep your items organized, especially while traveling.
For shorter journeys, consider using a hanging toiletry bag. This simple organizer can keep all of your toiletries in one place to make packing and unpacking a breeze.

Utilizing vertical space in an RV is well-known trick that is sometimes forgotten. These can be set up within your RV’s cabinets and drawers, or on the counter. One of the best parts is that they’re clear to ensure you can find your items quickly and keep track of product levels. Consider storing Q-tips, tweezers, cotton balls/pads, jewelry, makeup, and more in these containers.
Many RV cabinets are very wide and deep, while drawers can be long. This provides a lot of wiggle room (literally) for your bathroom products to shift during travel. Consider utilizing any means of dividers or separators to customize your space to suit your needs and keep your items organized.
A mounted toothbrush holder is a fantastic way to keep your toothbrushes clean and out of the way during travel. The one we’ve listed not only holds your toothbrushes, but also dispenses toothpaste. It comes with two reusable, magnetic bathroom cups, a little drawer, and storage space on top as well. This can be the perfect product to help keep your products together and organized in your RV’s bathroom.
Under the Sink
Many RVers struggle with keeping their large cabinets under the sinks organized. It can be tricky to find room for everything due to the bulky piping and jostling during travel. Many RVers typically store cleaning chemicals under their sinks at home, but always feel free to think outside the box when RVing!
