When it comes to your RV, less is more. The RV is an easy place to get overloaded very quickly. I’ll bet if you were to look in your RV right now, you probably need half of the stuff you have packed away in there. Just think about the stuff that are packed continuously and go on every trip. Do you really need to fill every available space in you RV? Of course not! You just have to make the effort to clean out all of the stuff that, for the most part, is just along for the ride.
I finally made the decision to go through my RV and I realized I had tons of stuff I never needed to take with us. There were even items that I had never used the entire time I owned RVs. Ever do that before? If so, it’s time to scale back considerably. I mean, really, I did not need 2 sets of silverware, 14 serving bowls or 48 red solo cups. Nor did I need to have 4 water filters, 2 hoses, 6 packages of toilet chemical drop ins and 6 cans of bug spray. Enough was enough. Even when I started through the clothing, there was no way I needed all of those swimsuits, shoes and 16 pairs of socks. No wonder our gas mileage was low. I had been carrying my entire house with me.
I had to stop the madness and took the action I had been saying I’d take four trips ago. I got water tight storage containers and went to town. When all was said and done, I took 3 expedition sized loads out of the RV and have everything I really need packed in 6 tubs. I improved my living space, I improved my gas mileage and I took a lot of stress out of packing for my next trip. Try scaling back a little and you’ll find a lot of the same benefits that I did.
When was the last time you really cleaned out your RV?
