RV Set up! How To Pack & Organize An RV to Hit The Road Fast

When we first starting living the RV Life, we used campground laundry facilities or local laundromats for our laundry needs. It reminded me of my college days. -Waiting for someone to switch their loads, for a machine to open up, or wondering when the next person would FINALLY come get their things out of the dryer so I could finish my laundry!

Declutter everything – it might be easiest to start with a complete empty out of the rig and deep cleaning.

And there you go, just add clothes and food and you’re ready to roll! It takes us just a few hours to pack up clothes and food using these hacks:

Quick Packing Tips:


I use Ikea bags and Laundry baskets to take things from the house to the Rig.
Bins for both the house and the RV for food. Makes for easy back and forth PLUS keeps things organized.
Bins under the kids beds make packing clothes, books, etc easy to transport back and forth from house to RV
Using bins for socks/undies, etc to easily bring back and forth between the rig and the house.
Using a checklist to make sure we don’t forget everything.

Side note on downsizing: We can take everything that is in our closet in our “sticks/bricks” house and fit it in our RV closet. We try to keep with the “one in one out” method when buying new clothes, shoes, etc. By taking EVERYTHING we have (clothing wise, etc) we know we are not going to forget anything.
