Effortless Living: Transformative Tips for Streamlined Motorhome Comfort

Just because you’re on the road in a motorhome doesn’t mean you can’t be comfortable. 

Streamline your motorhome for easy living with strategic, back-to-basics tips and adjustments. 

Learn practical, space-saving strategies to enhance your life on the road.

Focus on your kitchen, living space, and laundry—areas that play a significant role in any travelling home.

Optimising Overall Space

The key to comfort in a motorhome, whether heading out on a short journey or preparing for full-time motorhome living, lies in making the most of your limited living area. 

Create a sanctuary inside your portable home with multi-purpose gadgets, expandable storage options, and a few new habits.

Double-Duty Devices

Investing in innovative tech can save space and time. The EcoFlow 800W Alternator Charger, for instance, not only charges your devices but can also juice up the car battery while you’re on the move, ensuring you’re never powerless. 

Pair the EcoFlow DELTA 2 portable power station and portable solar panels like the 220W Bifacial Portable Solar Panel, and you’ll also have a robust, eco-friendly, compact power source. 

You can power up your essential appliances and devices with just one system.

One Charger for All

Devices mean cords, and cords mean clutter. 

Avoid unnecessary tangles using a portable power station like EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max or the powerful DELTA Pro.

Each boasts multiple charging ports for all your devices.

Organising cables keeps your space neat and ensures you’re always fully powered up for the next adventure.

Expandable and Collapsible Solutions

Get creative with your storage. 

Look for drawer systems that extend out but tuck away when not in use, hanging baskets for fruit that can be put away when unneeded to save counter space, and convertible furniture like a bench that opens into a bed. 

Flexibility is your friend in the motorhome lifestyle.

Habits for a Streamlined Lifestyle

Aside from tangible solutions to integrate into your motorhome, you can incorporate several habits and approaches into your daily routine to keep things tidy and organised. 

These include:

  • Give Everything a Place: Ensure every item has its designated space. This will help you find things quickly and cue you when it’s time to declutter.
  • Clean Daily: A small investment of time each day in keeping things tidy pays dividends in the long run. A clean, organised space is more enjoyable to live in. Take time in the morning or before bed to reset things back to their resting places, clean the kitchen and bathroom, and sweep the floor of any debris.
  • One In, One Out: Every time you buy something new, consider what item you’re willing to part with in its place. This helps prevent your motorhome from being overrun by possessions and forces you to consider whether the value of an object is worth the purchase.

Clever Kitchen Storage

The kitchen is the heart of the home–even a mobile one. 

Getting your kitchen area right significantly boosts the quality of motorhome living. 

Try these clever storage hacks to make the most of your tiny kitchen for prepping, cooking, and eating.

Cover Your Sink or Stove With a Cutting Board

When you’re not using your sink or stove, space could be used for something more pressing. 

Find cutting boards that fit over your sink or on your stove to give you extra space for food prep and feel less cramped.

Shop for Groceries Every Few Days

By picking up supplies more frequently, you’ll keep your fridge and pantry stocked with fresh items and keep your limited kitchen storage neat. 

Strike a healthy balance between shopping too often and not stockpiling items in your limited kitchen storage.

Keep Coolers in a Tow Vehicle

Need more space than your motorhome fridge allows? 

Use all the space available, especially if you’re bringing a tow vehicle. 

Keeping coolers loaded with drinks and snacks in your tow vehicle can free up vital refrigerator space in your motorhome while maintaining the freshness you need.

Prep Food Ahead of Time

Prep meals before hitting the road to save valuable time and counter space when you’re hungry and eager to eat. 

That could mean preparing freezer meals at home or chopping up veggies and fruits at a campsite before the next leg of your journey. 

Anything you can do before filling your motorhome quarters will help.

Laundry Made Easy

Clean clothes are a necessity, not a luxury. 

But how do you handle laundry in such a confined space? 

By using available resources and getting creative, you can find a flow with your motorhome laundry routine.

Pack Lean With Intention

Decide on a set number of outfits and stick to it.

Versatile clothes and layering can help you do more with less. 

Don’t bring surplus items you’re unlikely to wear; instead, bring things you can wear more than once. 

For example, pyjamas you can re-wear for several nights and sweaters that double as outerwear in colder months.

Portable Washing Machines

If you have the space, a portable washer can be a game-changer. 

Caravan washing machines are relatively easy to find space for, making cleaning clothes a breeze. 

An onboard washing machine is perfect for dry camping and boondocking when you know you won’t have access to laundromats or campground laundry facilities. 

A washing is much more valuable than a dryer as air drying is easy, free, and accessible. 

Prioritise a washer if you have to choose.

Get a Collapsible Hamper

When laundry piles up, it can become overwhelming.

But you want to avoid committing to a fixed laundry hamper that will take up space even when all the clothes are clean.

A collapsible hamper is a lifesaver when managing dirty clothes in a small space. 

It can hold all your garments when it’s time for a wash and collapse into something easy to store away when unneeded.

Pack Travel-Size Detergent

Regular-sized laundry detergent bottles take up a lot of room, and unless you’re living in your motorhome full-time, you likely only need a small amount. 

Opt for small, travel-friendly packaging options to save space and weight.

Use Racks or Lines for Drying

When it’s time to dry, think vertical. 

Turn the negative space in your motorhome into the perfect place to dry your clothes.

Hang dry your laundry on lines inside the motorhome using Command hooks and strong string. 

Or let them blow in the breeze outside at a campsite to save space and avoid paying for drying clothes.

Use Nearby Laundromats or Campground Laundry

When all else fails, it’s time for a field trip to the local laundromat or campground laundry facility. 

Plan these trips into your itinerary, looking for nearby locations and prioritising campgrounds that offer this amenity.
