RV Shoe Organization and Storage


How to Organize Shoes in Your RV?

When you have an entire house to yourself, you don’t have to worry about the overflowing shoe closet. However, things can get a little difficult when you have to downsize for your RV life. Bringing four pairs of shoes per person also becomes a lot and you need a proper RV shoe storage area or organizer to make sure the shoes aren’t scattered all over the place.

Selecting shoes for your RV

You are switching to a smaller closet, which means you have to act smart and take only the essential shoes with here. Let’s take a look at x tips for selecting shoes for your RV:

1. Match outfits with shoes

Use your clothes to select the kind of shoes you want to take with you. If you wear a lot of t-shirts and pants, canvas shoes or slippers suit your wardrobe the best. Are you more into dresses and skirts? Well, sandals and decorate slippers will suit your closet a little better.

2. Go for block colors

Choose shoes with block colors as it makes them easy to team it up with any outfit. When you have shoes that are very decorative or full of patterns, you limit its number of uses, which isn’t a practical use of the limited space of your RV.

3. Avoid heels

Leave those five-inch tall pair of heels back at home. They are difficult to store and you will be spending most of your time hiking, swimming, or relaxing. Avoid taking shoes with you that you won’t use regularly.

List of shoes you need to take with you

Your goal should be to stick to four or five pairs of shoes. Don’t worry whether they are pretty or not because your comfort matters the most. Here are five shoes that you need to take with you:

1. Training shoes

Training shoes are great when you are going for a casual walk or exercising outside. They are comfortable, so if you are spending your whole day walking around, you know which ones to pick.

2. Hiking shoes

If you are hiking up a mountain, you must wear hiking shoes. They have the best grip and protect joints from injury. Hiking shoes are usually expensive but they also last for a long time, so the cost will get covered up.

2. Two pair of slippers

Use one pair of slippers for the outdoors and the second one for indoors. If you don’t prefer to wear slippers inside the RV, you can wear socks and make space for another items. You can also take one pair of flip flops and another

3. Sandals

Go for sandals that have elaborate designs, so you can wear them to a party or dinner date. Stick to a brown or black pair of sandals since they complement almost all clothes.

After adjusting into RV life, you will realize that you never needed so many clothes and shoes.

Smart places in your RV to store shoes

You have to get creative with the space that’s available to you to store the shoes. Let’s take a look at them:

1. Under the bed

The easiest place to hide your shoes is under the bed. You can store them in a box or place them in a restricted area directly. Clean your shoes well before you put them back as the odor and bacteria can harm your bed linens.

2. Storage ottoman

Store your shoes in a storage ottoman or under the couch. Pack your shoes in tiny bags before you place them inside.

3. Under the stairs

You can either have stairs that open, so you can store inside them or remove the front part and slide the shoes inside. The location is convenient because you can take your shoes off as you get inside the RV and push them under the stairs.

4. Hang on curtain rods

Screw curtains on the side of your couch and add S-hooks to them. Hang your shoes over the hooks and cover the couch and its side with a big piece of cloth. It is the only option left if you don’t have any storage space left in your RV.
