10 Top Indoor Motorhome Storage Ideas
First-time motorhome owners are faced with a variety of choices when it comes to planning their first trips. Should you travel abroad or explore some of the most beautiful spots in the UK? When the sky is the limit, we appreciate that it can be tricky to know where to start!
But, regardless of your decision, there is one thing you need to take into consideration: Staying in a motorhome is a constant space challenge. With limited space available, you need to know how to make the most of your motorhome interior. So, to make things easier, we’ve compiled our top 10 indoor motorhome storage ideas.
#1. Drawer unit inside awkward cabinets
Cabinet-sized drawer units are a smart investment to bring some much-needed organisation to your cupboards and cabinets. They act as a free-standing drawer unit, which can avoid awkward space waste with inadequate shelving. These are ideal in kitchen and bathroom areas. You can secure the unit with screws or with a bungee.
#2. Plastic storage bins on shelves
You are probably familiar with large plastic storage bins and boxes from places such as IKEA and The Range. Typically, homeowners tend to use them inside the utility room or children’s playrooms. But they can also be a neat addition to your interior motorhome storage. Placed on large shelving units, they can keep your stuff organised and accessible. You can also add labels and comportment to help the whole family.
Best use: To hold clothes, toys, and outdoor gear.
#3. Multi-function mixing bowls
You have to be smart about kitchen organisation. Nobody wants to make do without essential utensils, but you often need to improvise when space is limited. Not anymore: Stackable mixing bowls are a game-changer for indoor motorhome storage. They are not only space-saving, but most sets also include a measuring spoon and a colander.
#4. Collapsible kitchen utensils
In the same line of thinking, you can add collapsible utensils to the kitchen area. Collapsible pots and kettles can easily be stored inside a cabinet. You can also find a collapsible colander and retractable dish drainer to make the most of your space.
#5. Hang your fruit & veg
With smart indoor motorhome storage, you don’t need to compromise on your diet. Tinned food may be space-saving, but it doesn’t replace fresh fruit and vegetables. Hanging fruit hammocks are a fantastic solution that keeps your produce fresh and safe, even while travelling.
#6. Hang it to the wall
Vertical storage ideas are a favourite. They take virtually no space and can keep your motorhome organised. Wall-mounted magnetic strips can keep pots, pans and knives at bay and free up space inside your cabinets.
One word of warning, however. Magnetic strips are best used once the motorhome is immobile. While driving, you want to keep your kitchen utensils safely stored inside a cupboard or a drawer.
#7. Shoe organiser for bathroom
You are probably seen foldable shoes and clothes organisers that are typically designed to be hanged on a wall. Places such as IKEA often use them in their bedroom and playroom displays. These organisers can prove helpful in your bathroom area, keeping rolled towels in place.
With the addition of small elastic bands, you can also secure toiletry pots and lotions inside the compartments to keep them safe during travel.
You can minimise packaging waste in line with smart motorhome storage tips with the addition of wall-mounted dry-food dispensers inside the kitchen area. These can store cereals, rice, dry pasta, nuts, and dry grains safely. They will free cabinets from unnecessary food boxes!

They can transform your drawers, keeping everything neatly in its place and easy to find. Large organisers can also fit inside cabinets be used as a wall-mounted shelving grid. To use as a shelving unit, you will need to add a lid to ensure your belongings don’t fall while on the road!
