Tips for Organizing Kids Clothes in RV

Get Creative, but Keep it Functional

Depending on your specific RV, you find yourself needing tips for organizing kids clothes. If you have a bunkhouse you may have drawers and possibly a small closet. If you have a toy hauler you may have room for small dresser or storage. Some may not have either option and have to get creative.

Having already had two different RVs I have found creativity and functionality is key. Especially when it comes to the little peoples clothes. You don't want a system thats too hard to keep up with. Sometimes it takes a little trial and error to see what will work best. Luckily there are lots of inexpensive ways you can organize. Check it out.

Baskets, Crates, and Plastic/Fabric Bins

Perfect for stand alone storage or organizing cabinets, underneath furniture, or even closets. The possibilities are endless.

We personally do not have a closet or built in drawers, but in our bunkhouse we have this cabinet area.

Bins, both plastic and fabric helped organize these deep and tall cubbies inside.

Baskets in all sizes are great to divide up spaces to help organize better.

I love fabric bins because they fold up nicely when not in use, they're deep for storing a lot, and they're inexpensive.

Crates work really well when you need to stack them! They're sturdy and typically more durable.

I like to mix and match finding the best size combinations. So I can optimize the space as much as I can.

Tension Rod Products

Tension rod products are great because they're not permanent. They can be adjusted easily and you can typically find the size you need.

They not only have tension rods, but also tension shelves now! So cool for those super tall and never enough shelving RV cabinets.

They have holders you can also get for a more permanent fit. So you don't have to worry about falling down.

Clothes Hangers & Hanging Organizers

Whether it's for clothes, shoes or accessories. There is an hanging option for you! They have shoe pockets that can go over a door. They have hanging shelving. Theres also hangers for belts, hats, and more. Great for organizing your children's space if you have areas you can hang them.

I love kid size hangers since our toddlers are still in tiny sizes. They fit great in our cabinet. I wish we had more room for some of these other awesome options. Maybe you do.

Storage & Furniture

Maybe you have space for furniture. Whether it's a normal dresser or a lightweight plastic/fabric option. Again the possibilities are endless!

We have a 3 drawer plastic dresser in our bunkhouse. It's light and easy to move on travel days. The shelves are deep and hold a lot. Furniture like this comes in all shapes and sizes. You're bound to find something that works for your space if you need more storage.

Drawer organizers can be used to divide up…

  • Undergarments
  • Shirts
  • Socks
  • Bottoms
  • Pajamas
  • Bathing Suits
  • Accessories
  • Jewelry

Rolling Method

One way to really optimize space and eliminate wrinkled clothing is to roll the tiny clothes instead of folding them. It's proven to take up less space and this method will help prevent wrinkling over time. Who likes to iron? Not me!

Of course when it comes to organizing any space, donating what you no longer need is helpful. Clothes they may have outgrown or out of season and won't fit next year. This cuts down on the clutter and helps those who may need it now that you don't. I always have a donation pile at the end of my organization projects. If it's in good shape with life left it goes to those in need.
