HIDEit's RV Space Saving Hacks + Tips
Who doesn’t like to get away from it all in their RV or camper to enjoy Mother Nature and the Great Outdoors? Getting your RV accessories packed and ready to go, however, can be challenging with limited space. We’ve got a few RV space-saving hacks to help you organize, keep devices safe and eliminate clutter!
HACK #1: USE A FULL MOTION ARTICULATING TV WALL MOUNT
While you can install a fixed TV mount, we’d recommend installing a full-motion TV mount. A fully articulating TV wall mount upgrades your RV setup to customize your viewing angle and gives you additional space to hide your devices. If you have a newer motorhome, chances are that it’s already pre-blocked for a TV to be wall mounted; take advantage!
Use this as an opportunity to skip the antenna TV and watch your favorite shows on the go! HIDEit has plenty of solutions for cable boxes, digital media players or other streaming devices. HIDEit Mounts Universal Wall Mounts are adjustable to fit a number of devices and can easily be mounted behind a wall-mounted TV.
We also have mounts specifically designed for some of the most popular cable boxes and streaming devices including the Apple TV 4K, Roku Ultra and the DISH Wally.
Speaking of Wally, did you know we made a new mount custom-designed for the DISH Network RV cable boxes?
The latest edition to our growing family of cable box mounts, our DISH Wally Mount is made from 16-gauge, cold-rolled steel for strength and powder-coated for protection. Don’t worry, you still have easy access to all buttons, ports and the DISH Smartcard.
Of course, you’ve come to expect that from us, but we went the extra mile because we know you’re traveling the extra mile. To ensure a secure fit, we designed our Wally Mount with a channel lock that fits over the coax cable port. When combined with a coax cable, your Wall Receiver won’t be going anywhere. If the RV rockin’, it ain’t the Wally knockin’!
- Choose a TV mount with a small wall footprint for better location flexibility.
- Depending on the weight of your TV you may need to mount into a stud.
- Use a small piece of wood to add stability to the TV’s mounting location.
- Cord wraps are a quick solution to keep pesky cords wrapped up and easy to HIDE.
BONUS! HIDEit Universal Wall Mounts can also be under-shelf mounted for extra storage options.
HACK #2: WALL MOUNT YOUR GAMING DEVICES
Gaming devices are great for rainy days or late-night entertainment. But, game consoles take up a lot of space when not in use and can be damaged if not stored or secured properly. Solution? Wall mount them to free up valuable shelf or cabinet space! Vertically mounting them behind or next to a wall-mounted TV gives the consoles a home and eliminates the potential for accidental damage.
Whether you’ve gotten your hands on a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, or you’re still playing games on the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch or Xbox One X, HIDEit has mounts for pretty much every console.
- Standard #8 drywall screws may be too large for the walls in an RV, so play it smart and figure out what the best screw length is for your RV's walls.
- The HIDEit Uni-M Mount + Theft Deterrent add-on is perfect for wall mounting your PS4. The theft deterrent keeps the mount from sliding in any direction so it's perfect for the road!
BONUS! The PS5, PS4 and the Xbox Series X/S can play games, play Blu-ray Discs or stream Netflix and Hulu.
HACK #3: MOUNT TABLETS TO DECLUTTER COUNTERTOPS + TABLES
Another solution to keep your RV countertops and tables clutter-free is (you guessed it!) by mounting your tablet. The HIDEit Universal Tablet Mount adjusts to fit iPad, Surface tablets, Galaxy tablets, Kindle Fires and more! The mount fits most tablet cases giving you the freedom to install it almost anywhere in the RV. You can easily play music or read recipes from the kitchen without worrying about spills. Or you can mount your Kindle next to the bed for easy storage and charging access.
