How to Maximize Storage Space in Your Class B Motorhome

Class B Motorhomes are the perfect choice for people who love exploring the world and are interested in using a camper van as a daily driver. Their small size makes them more maneuverable and quicker than the bigger motorhomes. While there are many advantages to driving a Class B Motorhome, storage space is not one of them. On the bright side, there are several ways to maximize storage space in your Mercedes Camper.

What are Class B Motorhomes?

Class B Motorhomes are the smallest camper vans you can get. Despite their size, they are also the most popular class. This is because Class B Motorhomes are cheaper, easier to drive, and get in hard-to-reach spots. That’s not all. Every square inch is optimized to make the vehicle self-sufficient and provide the owner with all the amenities needed for memorable road trips.

Even though Class B Motorhomes like the premium Strada by Grech RV are equipped with high-end features such as the Timberline diesel fuel heating systems, learning how to maximize storage space is essential for all Class B Motorhome owners. Here is where we come in. So without any further ado, let’s check out the best ways to optimize storage space while living in an RV.

Tips & Tricks to Maximize Storage Space in a Class B Motorhome

Make Use of Wall Space

When it comes to maximizing storage space on a Class B Motorhome, most people focus on available floor space. However, overlooking the vertical space is a big mistake. Walls can be used for storage as well. This can be done by mounting shelves, hooks, and racks that can be used to store items such as kitchen utensils, tools, and even clothing. Installing wall-mounted shelves is not very complicated, but you have to check the RV’s owner manual to make sure that you don’t put screws in a wrong place.

Buy Multi-Purpose Furniture

One of the best things you can do as a Class B Motorhome owner is to invest in multi-purpose furniture. For example, you can buy a storage ottoman that can be used as a city when you are not taking out stuff from its container. What’s great about using multi-purpose is that you will have access to more storage space, and the Mercedes Camper Van feels more spacious.

Use Under-Bed Storage

If there is one trick that all Motorhome owners should learn, no matter if they own a Class B or Class A, it’s to use the under-bed storage area. Unfortunately, most people don’t utilize this area, and it’s a shame because it can be the perfect spot to store suitcases, camping gear, and extra bedding. A good idea for the under-bed storage is to fill it up with plastic bins to work as a storage closet.

Consider Investing in a Roof Rack

Do you love camping and other outdoor activities? If that is the case, you should consider investing in a roof rack. A roof rack will be the perfect place to store large items such as bicycles, kayaks, and camping gear that would otherwise take up lots of space inside the Class B Motorhome. Also, if you don’t travel with bikes or kayaks, it’s worth mentioning that there are roof racks where you can attach cargo carriers. Therefore, giving you even more storage space.

Use Any Available Outside Compartments

In general, Luxury Class B Motorhomes feature exterior storage compartments. While these compartments might not be great for items that you use daily such as kitchen utensils, they are ideal for things like chairs and tables, which you only take out when the RV is parked.

Final Words

While it might be true that Class B Motorhomes are the smallest camper vans, this doesn’t mean that you will feel crowded. On the contrary, they offer more than enough space and amenities for you to have a great time every time you take them out on the road. Furthermore, if you are clever about utilizing all the available space, such as under-bed storage, wall space, and roof racks, you will have more than enough room to store all your belongings.
