How do you store fruits and vegetables in a small campervan?
It’s a simple question. How do you store fruits and vegetables in an RV so small you hardly have a place to set your coffee cup?
We never eat as healthy as we’d like. We’re always planning to get better. MsBoyink has blogged through a stretch of creating a capsule kitchen in a tiny home, but we made the tiny home even tinier.
Still, we do usually keep an amount of fresh fruit and vegetables on hand including:
- Cherry tomatos
- Sweet potatos
Big RV = Easy
In our fifth wheel we hung a fruit basket that we purchased on Amazon.
The only spot I could think to hang that in the campervan was in between the front seats. Which would block the view when parked. And be in the way of opening and closing the front curtains.
So we left the fruit basket with the fifth wheel.
Sally has a spot where we thought we could hang a Fruit Hammock.
We tried to find one locally. We gave up after the 3rd store clerk routed us to the sporting goods section.
The Amazon fruit hammock looked too big for the spot we had in mind, so that was out.
Our solution for storing fruits and veggies in our campervan are these cotton string bags.
Still looking on Amazon for ideas, I found these Natural Cotton String Bags.
They come in a three pack. I ordered a set. Once they arrived we loaded them up to get a sense for how big they’d get and where they might fit.
There were only two places we could hang them. We have open wall space in the entry way and in the rear living room / bedroom. The entry way we are trying to reserve for our magnet collection, so the rear it was.
I used robe hooks from Lowes and hung two bags. One for fruit and one for veggies.
The cotton bags do stretch when loaded.
And..with the two bags mounted side by side…we’ve taken to calling them either “testicle of fruit” or “veggie teste”.
(Blame the lowering of our humor standards on the fact that we no longer have young ears around to protect.)
They’ve been in place for a couple of weeks and appear to be holding up well. I’ve since put a knot in the handles to get them out of the way of my feet when the couch is in bed mode.
So that’s our solution for storing fruits and veggies in a Class B campervan.
