Did you know my family lived in our motor home for 18 months? Yep. We sure did. You can read about some of the adventures we experienced during our RV days.
There were a few things that I found challenging during that time period. 1) No washer and dryer. 2) No bathtub. 3) No space.
I guess I can’t say there was no space, but with 12″ closets in my bedroom, it was certainly tricky to fit all of our clothes in the camper, not to mention everything else we needed when we hit the road. Cleaning and organizing became an ongoing battle.
On several occasions, I thought of purchasing Space Bag® storage bags in order to maximize space, but without a a vacuum to compress the bags, the bags didn’t offer the space saving that we needed.
That’s why I was excited to learn that Space Bag® now offer Dual-Use Bags which can be compressed with a standard vacuum or by hand rolling to expunge air through a one-way valve. This new vacuum free technology has made it easier than ever to maximize space in your RV with Space Bag® Dual-Use Bags which are convenient for travelers and those that may not have access to a standard vacuum.
Full-time RVers can use these bags to:
- – pack seasonal clothing
- – store excess bedding
- – help protect belongings and important documents from
- moisture, odors, and pests.
Not only do I think these are perfect to use in an RV, I think they’re great for traveling in general. Just think about how many pieces of clothing you could fit inside your carry-on bag on your next flight, saving excess luggage fees at the airport!
One look at the website and you’ll find helpful Space Bag® products designed specifically with Rver’s and other travelers in mind.
Testing Space Bag® Storage Products
I was excited to recieve and test a sampling of Space Bag® products. To begin I selected three full size blankets, placed them in a medium size Dual-Use Bag, held my vacuum to the one way valve and removed all of the air. It took me longer to place my folded blankets in the bag then it did to suck all the air out of it. You can see what my stack looked like before and after. Space Bags® make quite a difference, don’t they?
The process is very easy, but I did have doubts as to how well it would work when I tried to compress the bags by hand. To get started, I selected four of my shirts, placed them in a medium size Dual-Use Bag and hand rolled them. The results were identical and every bit as easy to achieve.
I saved an extra large cube bag to store winter clothes. I placed several pair of jeans, sweatshirts, sweaters and a jean jacket in the bag and it still wasn’t full! The bag is enormous! I can’t believe how much it could hold. The bags are durable, waterproof and reusable.
In addition to a sampling of the space saving bags, I also received a Space Bag® Storage Tote Pack which is perfect for bedding, towels or winter coats. I love the see-through window on the front of the bag which allows you to easily see what’s inside at a glance. This would be perfect for under bed or basement storage in an RV, or inside your home.
I’m very excited about the possibilities the Space Bag® Storage Products offer and I can’t wait to put their storage saving capabilities to the test on the road when we embark on a month long RV adventure next year. I know these bags will help us maximize our space, which will add to our comfort and my sanity!
