How To Secure RV Furniture

There are few things that beat going out on an adventure with an RV, trailer, or camper. These amazing modern marvels of engineering allow you to travel abroad and witness wonderful sights, visit faraway places, and bask in the splendor of nature, all while bringing the comforts of home with you. You get to enjoy things like a bed, tables, chairs, sofas, and more! With all that in mind, it begs the question: how do you keep all that furniture from moving around while you are on the road? RecPro is here with a few tips to help you keep your stuff secure on your travels.

When you're traveling with an RV or camper, it is a good idea to take precautions to protect your furniture. Accidents can happen, and if your furniture isn't secured properly, it could be damaged or destroyed. In this blog post, we will outline a few tips for securing your RV or camper furniture while traveling. Follow these tips, and you can rest assured that your furniture will stay safe and sound!

Use Furniture Straps

Furniture Straps

If you have loose furniture in your RV or camper, it's important to secure it with straps before hitting the road. Loose furniture in your rig can slide around, scratching your floor and potentially damaging itself or other furniture in your rig.

One popular way to secure loose furniture in your RV is to use  furniture straps. You can find furniture straps at most hardware stores, as well as here on the RecPro website. Just make sure to choose straps that are made from high-quality materials that can put up with a lot of wear and tear. After all, you would not want your furniture straps to fray and snap as you are headed down the road, sending your beloved RV furniture flying.

Use Bungee Cords

If you do not feel like mucking around with furniture straps and tie-downs, consider using some  bungee cords! These handy cords can be used for a wide array of applications and are a great alternative to furniture straps. Bungee cords are another great way to secure loose furniture in your RV or camper. Here's how you can anchor your RV furniture. Screw four D-ring anchor points into your RV floor near whichever wall or surface your furniture is located, leaving enough space between them for the furniture to fit in. Then, attach bungee cords or a bungee cargo net to one anchor point, stretch it over your RV furniture, and attach the other end of your cord or net to the remaining anchor point.

You should also make sure that your bungee cords have a rubber coating of some sort on their hooks. Having a rubber coating on the hooks of your bungee cord will help prevent those hooks from scratching up or putting holes in your RV furniture as you travel. Unprotected metal hooks on bungee cords are very likely to cause deep scratches and groves on wood furniture or tears and holes on cloth furniture. No one wants to have their furniture damaged, so make sure those bungee hooks are covered!

Use Velcro Strips

Furniture straps and bungee cords are great options in their own right, but they can feel very tedious to use if you have to take them off and put them on constantly. If you're looking for a more permanent solution, you can use  Velcro strips as an alternative. Velcro strips make it easy to attach furniture to the walls or floor of your RV or camper. This is a great option if you have heavy pieces of furniture that you don't want to strap down every time you hit the road. Velcro strips are also great for keeping smaller pieces of RV furniture safe and secure as you are traveling. Velcro strips can be found in many different hardware stores, as well as other common department stores.

Use Adhesive Hooks

Adhesive Wall Hooks

Tables and chairs may not be the only furniture you have. Perhaps you need a place to hang a coat or a decorative plant basket? Adhesive hooks are a great option for keeping furniture like those secure while traveling. You can use them to hang pictures, mirrors, and other lightweight items on the walls of your RV or camper. Just make sure to choose adhesive hooks that are made from strong materials, so they don't fall off while you're driving.

Command strips are a great example of adhesive hooks that you can use to secure your RV furniture as you are out traveling. They offer the strength needed to attach pictures, mirrors, and other lightweight items to the walls without damaging the paint or wallpaper. Additionally, Command strips are known to be very easy to remove when needed without leaving markings, stains, or damage on your wall.

Secure Furniture - Easy Travels

Traveling in an RV or camper can be a great way to see the country and spend time with family and friends. It allows you to experience new things and broaden your horizons in ways few others have the chance to. But it's important to make sure your belongings are secure before hitting the open road. By following these tips, you can rest assured that your furniture will stay put no matter where your travels take you.
