How to organize games in an RV

First off, let me just say that I’m sure there’s a bunch of different ways to organize games in an RV. In this post, I’m just sharing what works best for us personally.

When we first moved into the RV, we had most of our games in this bucket and the ones that didn’t fit were shoved up in a cabinet above our couch. It wasn’t very practical but it worked for awhile.

I was watching Instagram stories one day can came across a friend who was sharing about a game organization system and I immediately knew it would be perfect for us!

I ordered one and was so impressed! We fit over 20 games in it even though it is advertised to only hold 6! As you can see above, I was able to get rid of a ton of game boxes and save space!

The GeekOn Quad-Mod game organization and storage solution

For us, this was perfect to hold square board games, and miscellaneous games like dominos and small card games. This game organizer holds basically everything except for our larger board games which we now keep in a closet in the bunk room.

It has 16 zippered pouches that hold small game pieces. We also use them for card games and our dominos. When it’s folded in, you put the square game boards in the middle.

Where we store our games in our RV

Like I mentioned earlier, we still have several other games that don’t fit in our organizer because the game boards are too big. We keep these in a cabinet in our back bunk room along with our space saving game organizer.

Also, easy-access storage bins can be great for full-time RVers with a lot of small space areas to utilize. There are a lot of storage ideas and storage solutions for travel trailers out there but hopefully, this gives you some ideas about how to store your games.

Our top 10 favorite games

As I mentioned earlier, we especially love card games, but we enjoy board games as well. Here are 10 of our favorites, in no particular order.

1 – Monopoly Bid

  • 2-5 players
  • Ages 7+
  • Card game

If you like the traditional Monopoly game but don’t like how long it takes, this one is perfect for you. Collect sets of properties and money without spending hours wishing someone would just win already haha!

2 – Hand and Foot

  • 2-unlimited players
  • Ages 13+
  • Card game

Growing up, I played Hand and Foot with my family all the time. After we got together, I taught Tucker how to play and it’s been one of our favorites ever since.

If you are playing with only 2 or 3 people then you play individually. If you’re playing with 4 or more then you need teams of 2. This is a really fun group card game! Find the rules and how to play here.

3 – Trekking the National Parks

  • 2-5 players
  • Ages 10+
  • Board game

4 – Hit the Deck

    1. This is a great list of game ideas Janae! We usually just keep a few decks of cards around, but I used to love Mastermind! I also really like that you have the Avengers Monopoly 🙂 – so fun!

    2. This was really helpful! So funny – we never heard of hand and foot until my father in law found it at a flea market randomly and brought it over to play!
