eBags: The best way to pack and carry your clothes

| Updated Mar 26, 2024

In an RV, space is at a premium. And few things take up more room than suitcases packed with clothes.

eBags: The best way to pack and carry your clothes 1That's where eBags Packing Cubes come in so handy. We heard about them from fellow RVers who sang the praises of this very affordable way to pack and carry clothes on an RV trip. Some RVers are so hooked on eBags that they even put them in a suitcase when they do traditional and airplane travel.

But in an RV, they're the hands-down best way we've found to pack.

A five-piece set of the packing cubes costs around $20 from Amazon. They come in different colors. I use blue, and Jen uses raspberry red (the closest they come to pink). They have a mesh top panel for easy identification of contents and ventilation

We store them in the overhead bins above the bed in the Roadtrek. This keeps everything wrinkle-free and compact. The bins let you “unpack without unpacking”—that is, you can remove the cubes to get at your stuff but still keep things neat and tidy.

Trust me, if you're in an RV, on a boat, or just want to make your suitcase neat, these are what you need.

It was my pleasure to offer tips to you and Jennifer. After a couple trips you both will know what you need to make traveling easier and what you don’t use. Hal and I have taken things out that don’t serve a purpose to us and just take up valuable space.

I am always glad to pass on tips or suggestions from our experiences. I had trouble leaving a reply on The Road Bekons topic but was able to reply today.

Thanks for all your tips. We appreciate them…as does the economy! We sure have been doing our bit!

Will do videos on the SuperBag and the nesting cookware. Your suggestions have been so helpful! Keep ’em coning!

You and Jennifer are coming right along with outfitting your B. I think we now have just about every size ebag including the slim bags, shoe bags and the flat toiletry case. I see you found some nesting cookware, and the Superbag. Glad we were able to pass on some tips that have made traveling comfortable. Every inch saved in the B is important.
We still add things after six years. Gail
