Major Must-Haves for the RV Bedroom

What I choose to have for my RV bedroom may be different than what you choose, but I wanted to give you a few good ideas. It’s important to have useful, organizational items in your bedroom because you aren’t going to have a lot of room. Check out these major must-haves for the RV bedroom. These must-haves can truly make your RV feel like home.

Shoe Storage

In the RV bedroom, you will want to have a place to store all of your belongings, but especially your shoes. Shoes can be super annoying if you don’t have a place for them to go. I can’t tell you how many times I tripped over random shoes on my way in and our of my camper bedroom before I finally broke down and got a shoe organizer. Spend a few bucks on shoe organizers for the RV bedroom. If you do not have a bedroom door to hang this organizer on, you can pop a couple of screws into the wall and hang it on the screws.

We also have an organizer in our camper bathroom for toiletries:

Laundry Hamper

Another must-have item for an RV bedroom is a laundry hamper. When dirty clothes come off, it’s important to have a space to put the clothes. You can buy a smaller hamper that won’t take up much space, but will still hold lots of dirty clothes. Sometimes we use a pop up hamper and other times we use a mesh laundry bag to hold our dirty wash.


Hooks for Hanging

In most RVs, you have a decent amount of wall space. This is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of hooks! You can buy a variety of hooks to use in your RV bedroom. Command hooks are pretty popular, but you can also get a nice variety wall hooks online!

A Good Mattress (You REALLY Need This RV Must-Have!)

I’m sure a lot of you have spent some uncomfortable nights on the factory-issued mattress that came with your camper. I am here to tell you that it is totally possible to upgrade to a comfy RV mattress without spending a fortune. A good mattress is so important because when you don’t get a good night’s sleep, the next day can be miserable and sore. If I had to pick three things for the bedroom in our RV, one of them would be a decent mattress.  See how easily we upgraded our camper mattress.

Folding Tables

One thing that works wonders in RVs are small folding tables. Using “TV dinner” tables is always a win. You can buy these really cheap at garage sales. In an instant, you can have a fold-up table that you can use for a side table or for setting items on when you need extra space.

While this is surely a comfort item that you don’t need to have, it can be an important item to have while you are sleeping. RVs can house a lot of moisture and a dehumidifier makes it to where you can get rid of that moisture while you sleep. Plus, they aren’t super expensive.  If you don’t want a dehumidifier, you should definitely pick up some of these Damp-Rid moisture grabbers.  We keep a fresh one in our RV year round and these things seriously work wonders!

Closet Organizer

In an RV, you more than likely are not going to have enough storage as it is, but a closet organizer can truly make your bedroom a more functional, livable place. If you have decent closet space, you can add an organizer. There are closet organizers designed specifically for RVs.

These must-haves for an RV bedroom are important, but every family is so different. I’d love to hear what you have in your bedroom that makes it livable and cozy. Which item is your favorite? What are your must-haves for the RV bedroom?

We also use fabric totes in our camper closets to hold clothes and other items!

Sun Shades

Our camper came with fabric blinds that are good for privacy but terrible at blocking the sun in the morning. We picked up a pack of car window shades and stuck one in between each window/blind.  Works great and the camper stays a bit darker in the morning!
