RV Camper Child Proofing

Just like in any home, you have to child proof your RV. Luckily, all the same child proofing gadgets and gizmos you buy for home will work in an RV.

Standard cabinet door latches work in RVs. We have all cabinets within her reach secured with these.

The same latches secure all of our drawers. These latches provide extra cabinet and drawer security when traveling, as well.

Standard door knob safety device secures the bathroom door.

We used standard outlet covers on all the RV electrical outlets. The outlets actually look better with the covers on them.

We use a baby gate to keep her out of the office. There is a lot of stuff in there that she could get in trouble with, so she’s only allowed in there under supervision. She figured out how to work a baby gate before we moved into the RV, so my husband mounted this one with screws.

The screen door latch that came on the camper was very insecure and easy to figure out. We had to find something to secure that door with, and this is the best we could do. Russell had to cut into the door molding to make it fit. It isn’t pretty, but it works and is out of her reach.

  1. Thank you for posting your ideas! We are new to rv camping & have a 9 month old so we have a long way to go & need childproofing help. These ideas are great. Definitely going to use some of these, particularly the gate & door latch ideas. Thanks again!

    • Hi Tanya,
      We replaced the screen with Lexan (kind of like plexiglass). You can read more about the screen door / lexan conversion on my blog:

      and a little page on how to care for Lexan if you decide to use it:

      Thanks for visiting the site and good luck with your RV childproofing,
