There are many tips and tricks that one can utilize to make life a little simpler at the camp site, from storage ideas and accessories to keeping our kids, (pets), safe.
Most, if not all, campgrounds and RV resorts have rules require owners to keep their pets/dogs on leashes at all times when outside of the RV. One thing that we have done for our pets and our own peace of mind is, we purchased two low-rise dog pens that we set up around the door side of our trailer to give us a small “porch” like space for our mutts to wander in without being on a leash.
In a Trailer or Motorhome, there is some kind of closet space to hang our clothes and jackets. A lot of us have found, however, that when we hang up our things in the closet and leave for our trip, we arrive and discover that most, if not all, of the items we thought were secure on the closet rod, are now sitting on the floor of the closet.
Some of you may have already read about this but this is a tip I came across in an RV’ing magazine some time ago. This person had experienced this issue many times in their travels and came up with this unique and inexpensive way to secure their items and have never had this issue again.
What they did was, they measured the full outside diameter of the coat hanger they were using and then went out and purchased a piece of PVC pipe that was long enough and just a little bigger than the radius measurement of the hanger. Then, then cut the pipe down the middle and put it over the top of the hangers on the bar. They then secured it with an appropriate length of two-sided Velcro, (the kind that has the necessary parts on the proper sides), placing one strip at each end and one in the middle, (if necessary).
Simply undo the Velcro, remove the PVC and your good to go. Just repeat the process when it time to move on.
