Origami Storage Box: A RV Storage Container Mobile As You Are

We all have stuff. Everyone has different accessories, tools, clothes, and a multitude of other items that make up your “stuff”. In a RV there is nearly an eternal struggle to find a place for it all. With all the items that are must have, it simply means that some items wont make the cut.

We never had enough room for storage containers. The kind of containers you put laundry supplies in for the walk to the RV park clothes washing facilities. The kind of containers you use to wash the RV while on the road. The kind of containers you might lug items from the RV to the house. There isn’t room for rigid boxes taking up space. So when we recently were introduced to the Origami storage boxes it was an exciting moment.

The clever boxes from Origami turn into the RV storage container that seems to answer all our gripes with other large storage containers. First of all they are collapsible much like an accordion and made of heavy gauge plastic. They also are designed to fit inside one another so when not in use they take up a minimal amount of space. They come in a set of 3 different sized boxes, one of which has a lid. They are ideal RV storage containers with their built in handles and extreme light weight.

As mentioned above there are 3 separate container boxes of different sizes. The specifications for these RV storage containers are as follows:

  • Small Size Container: 7.25” D x 9” H  and weighs about 5 ounces.
  • Medium Size Container: 14” L x 11” W x 9.5” H and weighs just over a pound.
  • Large Size Container: 19” L  x 13” W x 12” H and weighs 1.5 pounds.

So when all three Origami storage boxes are stacked for storage you are looking a total weight of 3lbs, making it light enough for anyone to move around. We envision using these as RV storage containers for the uses mentioned above but also as a great way to get items to and from the beach, sporting events, and even as a makeshift cooler when needed. Who knows what else they may get used for!

It is important to mention that these RV storage container boxes aren’t overly rigid, there is some give when you load them up with weight. They certainly wouldn’t hold up if you loaded them full of heavy tools. But, keeping in mind they are made to be convenient and portable, we were certainly happy with the quality for the price. They can be purchased at for around $25.00.

Have any thoughts or alternative ways to lug stuff around? Please tell us about it in the comments section below!
