Exterior RV Bottle Opener: Never Search Through Drawers Again

If you count yourself among the crowd that enjoys an “adult” beverage from time to time, then this next RV mod may be of particular interest. Frankly, even if you don’t consume items that require a RV bottle opener you likely entertain folks that do need such a thing. Making a bottle opener a must have around the rig.

A RV bottle opener is quite the illusive accessory around our motorhome. We can never find it when we need it, then when we are cleaning out the drawers we find a dozen of them along with lighters, screw drivers, and batteries. It is a real problem and can really take the fun out of the day when someone tries to open a bottle with their teeth as a parlor trick and end up with a complimentary trip to the dentist.

A RV’er who goes by Badhabt (appropriate handle given the topic!) from Puyallup, WA, came up with a clever fix for the issue of the RV bottle opener which he showed off at He also struggled finding a bottle opener when 5 o’clock came. So he dug around his garage and found a old Coca-Cola bottle opener. He simply mounted it on the side of his 2006 Raptor 3612DS.


Then he placed an older Cragar lug mug strategically under the opener to catch the caps. It might make sense to come up with another catch method that is more reliable such as a magnet strip or to hang the catch cup closer to the RV bottle opener. Those caps can be a bare foot’s worst nightmare if they miss the jar.

If you don’t happen to have a wall mounted bottle opener laying around, you can find dozens of custom RV bottle openers online, including the nostalgic Coca-Cola version. If you arent a fan of drilling holes in your RV then you can take the easy way out and get a Click n Drink bottle opener as we did.
