With dozens of organizational tips and tricks to help with your storage woes, we’ve gathered some RV storage solutions to get those large real estate items out of the way and available for usage with a much more convenient approach. Extra space in your camper or trailer is always a plus!

Our top three suggestions for RV camping storage solutions are as follows:

#1) PowerArmor storage container for camping gear
With three different box sizes currently available, Torklift International PowerArmor box is the perfect locking storage container available for a variety of uses. The largest sized box, the PowerAmor MAX can hold up to five batteries and comes with adjustable dividers to compartmentalize and organize a custom storage container to fit your needs.

Securely storing tools, camping gear and other equipment isn’t the only perk to the PowerArmor storage box. If you’re planning on storing batteries, you’ll want to upgrade to a PowerArmor Solar. Why? This aluminum storage container with locking capability is ideal for keeping your RV batteries healthy, charged and ready for use. The Zamp solar panel attached to the lid uses sunlight to trickle charge the batteries within, prolonging battery life up to 400 percent. After sitting in storage your batteries lose charge and quickly become duds. RV batteries are also easy targets for thieves looking to make a quick dollar. In these situations, replacing expensive batteries in which you’ve already invested can nearly break your bank.

The PowerArmor Solar also comes in MAX size giving you flexibility to put the dividers to use, sectioning off space for both batteries and equipment.

Free up limited interior space and create new spaces outside the RV to bring along necessary gear that would otherwise overload and overcrowd living space.

This space-saving cargo tray is also a great contender for exterior RV storage solutions. As a receiver hitch accessory for either front or rear hitch, the locking cargo carrier is ideal for securing heavy generators, gas cans, grills or even fire wood. The beauty of the locking cargo tray is that you’re able to simultaneously store, lock and run your generator. Keep the fumes and noise from a generator outside of your truck and RV by mounting it to the Torklift International Lock and Load.
