A peep inside our previous Camper.

Our camper is a Dutchmen 185db 2011

The floor plan from Website.

The fridge door is ajar, because the fridge is empty and switched off.
I keep the doors open with double sided soap suckers.
The table folds down for a bed and there is storage under the bunks.
Our bed is at the back.
Kris sleeps on a doggy-bed on the blue rug.
RV Tension rods keep the toiletries from falling out of the bathroom cabinet while traveling.
I have placed small items in tall plastic glasses.

The Couch opens up to make a bed with storage underneath.

We have since removed the couch and turned it into a bunk with extra storage, which works well.
Plastic storage drawers on top of the bunk bed. We removed the mattress and replaced it with a non slip mat.

We installed an Ikea  BYGEL Rail and hung Dollar-store containers in which we put out shampoos, etc.

Plastic magazine holders from the Dollar store.
L-R Recipe books, foil plastic bags, corelle plates, paper cups, paper plates, etc.
Above Right; CD, books, etc.
Below; Paper plates, electronics, etc.

Plastic containers, napkins in napkin holders, smaller paper plates, paper bowls, etc.
We use a Cake Carrier to store paper plates, cutlery and napkins on the table,
to keep the bugs away, prevent then from flying away on a windy day or get dirty.

Cans are stored in plastic storage boxes, which just fit in the lip, so they wont coming flying out.

Our burners are covered with a removable cover, I placed containers behind them to hold some stuff, which will be removed when we want to use the stove.

A RV Tension rod in the closet prevents the hangers from falling off while travelling.

A standard cutting board covers the sink for extra work space, a RV dish rack fits inside.
We cover the top of the stove with another cutting board when not using it for extra counter space.
I stick a tub onto the counter with double-sided Soap suckers to hold soap, detergent, hand cream, etc.
Curtain wire prevents the spices from falling out, a RV tension could also work.
The couch at the back opens for an extra bed and has extra storage.

  1. Oh wow Linda Tok very spiffy… what a nice home away from home. I went camping with my cousins at the KZN coast every year, sometimes twice a year for many years. *Smile* It was fun and we had such great time. It’s a wonderful way to enjoy time in nature. We also camped in the bush… just with the truck and a tent… then you really get close to nature ~ I much prefer your idea of camping ~ caravanning! I hope you enjoy lots of camping during the summer with the best weather. *Huggs* Mands


    • I’m glad you like it Mands 😉
      That must have been wonderful ! We also used to camping in tents, but with our unpredictable weather and the bears, I’m glad we’re in a camper.
      I hope so too 😉


  2. Hey! Comments are working today!

    I LOVE your caravan – it’s gorgeous, and positively luxurious compared to ours 😀 Thanks for sharing, Tok – it was great to peek into your holiday home!


I would ❤️ to hear from you.
