Helpful Tips on the best motorhome storage

The 10 Best Motorhome Storage Hacks

As the weather starts to warm up and your thoughts turn to road trips and adventures, preparing your motorhome or caravan for the journey can feel like a daunting task. There’s no need to worry though, we at Hogleaze Storage share our top 10 motorhome storage hacks. These creative and effective campervan storage ideas will help you make the most of your space, ensuring your possessions and food items are safely and tidily stored during your trip.

1. Utilise Magnetic Strips

The kitchen area often presents a storage problem in motorhomes. Installing a magnetic strip on a wall or under a cabinet is a particularly clever solution. Attach your metal kitchen utensils, like knives or spatulas, directly to the strip, clearing valuable counter space while keeping them easily accessible.

2. Velcro is Your Friend

Velcro strips can bring an unbelievable change to your storage design. They can be stuck on the walls or sides of furnishings and used to hold a surprising amount of commonly used items – external storage caddies, tablet devices, or remote controls. This ensures items are always within reach, yet out of the way.

3. Embrace Collapsible Cookware

Collapsible cookware is a godsend in the limited kitchen environment of a motorhome. Items such as bowls, colanders, and even kettles come in foldable varieties. These can be flattened out after use, taking up a fraction of their original space in your cupboards.

4. Go Vertical with Hanging Storage

The ceiling represents an often-untapped storage resource in your motorhome. Lightweight items can be kept out of the way yet still easily accessible with the help of hanging storage nets or baskets.

5. Think Nesting Items

Nesting items like cookware sets and measuring cups that sit within each other can practically halve their footprint in your cabinets, making them excellent choices when picking your kitchen equipment.

6. Under-Bed Storage Solutions

Maximise the space beneath your bed — it’s prime real estate for storage! Utilise rolling bins or custom-built drawers to easily store your clothes, extra linens, or other belongings. This area keeps items out of sight but easily reachable, turning what’s often an overlooked space into a storage treasure trove.

7. Door-mounted Organisers

To capitalise on every inch of your home on wheels, consider the back of your doors as a sanctuary for organisation. A shoe organiser is not just for footwear; it’s a versatile tool where all those little knick-knacks that can clutter can be systematically placed — from cleaning supplies to small tools to miscellaneous items.

8. Stackable Bins and Shelves

Vertical space can be ingeniously used through stackable bins and shelves, enabling you to compartmentalise your essentials. Strategically placed in cabinets or closets, they create additional layers of storage, and it is quite satisfying to see every item find its own designated home.

9. Roof Racks and Cargo Carriers

Roof racks and cargo carriers provide an extra repository for things not frequently needed on the road or bulky items that challenge the confines of interior space. Just remember safety first — ensure all outdoor storage is secure and aerodynamic to prevent any travel hazards.

10. Multi-Use Furniture

Furnishings that serve double duty not only save space but also add to the efficiency and functionality of your mobile home. Tables that transform into storage units, sofas with built-in compartments, and beds with fold-out options can make a significant difference in utilising the living area to its fullest potential.

Convenient caravan storage

Additionally, as a bonus tip, consider our hassle-free caravan storage service at Hogleaze, especially if you’re a fan of spontaneous trips. With 24/7 access, you can pack your caravan at any time that suits you best.

scenery) surrounding Hogleaze.

Hogleaze provides excellent facilities and service

We are emailing you to inform you that we have sold our motorhome and will no longer require the pitch. Should we buy another van, we will of course come back if you have availability.

You provide excellent facilities and service.

Really impressed with the service & customer-focused attention

I was really impressed with the service and customer-focused attention I received dealing with you both. Prompt replies to my enquiries and professional standards throughout mean that my first thoughts on needing storage will be towards Hogleaze. Also, as I mentioned when meeting you, my work involves motor homes, camper vans and the occasional ‘shed’ and I have and will continue to recommend you. I took several of your cards for this purpose!

Unfortunately, our house move failed as the buyers pulled out on Christmas Eve (nice) so I’ve put my MX5 back in our double garage but I was happy knowing it was safe and snug at yours!

Found the facility to be safe and secure

I used Hogleaze Storage for many years and found the facility to be safe and secure. My belongings stayed dry; the ambient temperature seemed just right and there was no dampness. Wooden furniture; cardboard boxes and books all survived intact. The staff are also helpful and friendly. I recommend this facility.

I really like the facility and I am very impressed with the setup you have.

It was lovely to meet you last Friday and finally get the Caravan in to secure storage. I really like the facility and I am very impressed with the setup you have. I received your welcome letter yesterday and have set up the standing order for the 1st July and then to continue at the begin of each month thereafter.

Thank you once again.

I would recommend Hogleaze Storage to anyone thinking of storing their possessions

It has been a most enjoyable experience entrusting Hogleaze Storage Ltd with my furniture, household and personal possessions, since August 2012.

It was good to meet Shelley, her helpful and friendly demeanor, nothing was too much – she even brought along bolt cutters in case I could not open the padlock on the shutter doors. She was happy to show Gentleman Removals and myself the way.

The service has been excellent throughout the seven years, with up-to-date monthly invoices and security information – thoughtful and caring – all my possessions including the ones I did not know I had stored in the unit, were intact and working.

I would recommend Hogleaze Storage Ltd to anyone thinking of storing their household, office and personal possessions, whether short or long-term. The location is worth a visit on its own, the site is safe and secure, clean and accessible 24/7.
