Unless you’re the only inhabitant of your RV, you may have noticed that it’s not just cleanliness that demands things be put away – it’s often an issue of safety. One such area of concern is shoes. The shoes, boots, sandals, flip-flops, and sneakers that usually get parked near the entrance or other highly-trafficked area of your RV pose a trip hazard – and are certainly an eye sore.
If you were like me growing up, you probably didn’t heed your mother’s words when she told you to take off your shoes when you entered the house. Well, let’s face it – it’s a pain to take your shoes off when you go inside your home or RV. If only there were an easier way to store your footwear, maybe more people would be inclined to do so.
The trick is to find a shoe storage solution that’s simple to use, so most everyone actually uses it. You might consider trying canvas pockets, but what about PVC piping?
How to Make an RV Shoe Rack from PVC Piping
Mike Boyink lives full-time in his RV with his wife and two children. He came up with a nice solution for storing his family’s shoes in their RV.
After an exhaustive search to find something that would work, he settled on a design made of PVC. PVC is an easy-to-use material that’s great for do-it-yourself craft projects.
Mike used 3/4” PVC piping and some end caps to create a stand-alone shoe rack. Best of all, it took him just a few hours to complete, and cost only $28! The great thing about a do-it-yourself shoe rack is that you can make it fit your needs. Only have a couple pairs of shoes? No problem. Want longer pegs for boots and shorter ones for sandals? You can do that too.
Everything about this approach is scalable and customizable to your needs. See more of this fantastic RV shoe rack idea at this link…
