It’s incredibly difficult to keep things organized over time. We always tend to struggle with the canned food. Grab one, pull it out, look it over, and then put it back because it’s the wrong one!
This happens so frequently, that we often end up preparing something totally different than originally planned.
Luckily, RV pantry storage can be improved. Our solution was to build an RV food storage dispenser for all the canned goods we keep in our rig.
Building Your Own Food Storage Dispenser
No need to recreate the wheel as we found a great concept for RV pantry storage while searching around at ProvidentLiving.org.nz. The designs they show offer lots of flexibility on the size, type of material used, and where you can install it. This made it ideal for us to use in our RV pantry.
The premise for this RV food storage idea is simple. A can dispenser keeps a time sensitive rotation of your food. It ensures you are always using the oldest cans first.
You can take stock of what types of canned goods you keep and build a dispenser with the right amount of cans and types of food for your individual needs. You can customize it for cat food, dog food, soda cans, or food cans.
The end result of your RV food storage can dispenser is really what you make of it. Provident Living shows off ideas for vertical, horizontal, and box dispensers. It shouldn’t be too hard to find one that fits your needs.

RV Food Storage Can Dispenser Design #3
This design is referred to as the “gravity-fed” can dispenser. Aptly named, it’s a vertical RV food storage can dispenser that works well for spaces that require a slim profile. Perfect for those areas not traditionally used for storage, such as behind a chair or on the wall in the kitchen.
