This is a little project I have wanted to tackle for quite some time. On many of our camping trips we have seen other campers playing a round of cornhole–with boards that ranged from the lightweight plastic ones to personalized, but hefty, wood ones. (Did you know there is an entire association devoted to the cornhole past time? Neither did I.) Note: This post contains affiliate
Corral those clothes!
Last week I shared about some of the new organizational and space-saving storage ideas we used in our camper on our summer West adventure. But I somehow overlooked one of the things that was key to keeping the kiddos’ clothes organized in the camper: our bunkhouse storage solution. Although we have a wardrobe in the bunkhouse area, we are using that space to organize linens/towels and to hide away
Conquer Camper Cupboards Part 2
How to organize small spaces seems to be a topic of great interest over on Pinterest. One of our top five posts here at TheTouringCamper.com is a post I wrote about camper cupboard organization. In that post I shared ideas for making the most of limited camper cupboards. Since then, though, we’ve found some additional ideas and products to help keep the camper organized, so we thought it was
Space Saving Strategies: Camper corral
During the camper’s “Weight Loss Plan” I needed a solution for storing some of the awkward and greasy items that we keep in the pass-through storage compartment of our camper. Hot-dog sticks, pie irons, and weight distribution bars don’t store well and will often get grease and soot on anything they touch. After scrolling Pinterest I thought the best solution would be to “hang” these items either
All tucked in
Typically when we go camping, our kiddos have slept in (or on) their sleeping bags rather than hassling with trying to put sheets on the bunk beds. Making a bunk bed is challenging, but keeping the sheets on the bed with acrobatic sleepers is nearly impossible. Although sleeping bags have been a simple bedding solution for camping, during the summer months our kiddos were often too hot in their
All charged up!
Ever since we purchased our new camper (two years ago) I have consistently had to use a battery charger prior to each trip to recharge the dead battery. While I am not exactly sure what keeps draining the battery, I have my suspicions that the CO detector is the culprit. This year I had to purchase a new Deep Cycle Marine/RV battery for the camper
Installing a cell antenna booster

Window dressing time
I’ve got another little camper remodel project for you today: camper window curtains. This little job was well overdue. Ever since our first trip in our camper, we had discovered a design flaw in the bunkhouse: metal window blinds. The blinds are problematic for two reasons. 1) Little hands bend the blinds every time kiddos try to peer outside–and the blinds never bend back flat again. 2) As kiddos roll
Boost your internet connectivity!
In preparation for our 2015 West Trip we recently installed a cell phone booster and antenna on the camper. Although we generally like to unplug as much as possible from our phones and computers while camping, for this trip Kristin will be doing some work (for her day job) and we will likely be in some areas where normal cell reception may be spotty at best.
