After many years of tent camping, we transitioned to our 13 foot Scamp
this Summer. It took me a lot of mental hours to decide where I wanted to keep things. Right now, this is working for us:
Sleeping bags for the bunks under the front bunk in one cubby. Extra blankets and pillows under the other cubby. Tote for all tools, blocks, electric cords, etc., under the middle cubby. Back packing tent and small fans go under there as well.
Sleeping backs for the dinette bed under drivers side bench.
Flashlights, lanterns, batteries, cleaning supplies, bug spray, under the sink in bins. Attached to the inside of the doors with little hooks, pot holders, dust broom and pan, first aid kit.
In the drawer above the icebox (we don't have a fridge) are kitchen towels, lighter, baby wipes, misc small items.
Above the kitchen in the cabinets in bins: travel sized board games, puzzles, etc. Coffee pot, disposable cups, instant tea and coffee, creamer.
Tall closet: a set of four stacking bins, which are capable of containing all of our clothing for a ten day trip. Each person gets one bin. On the inside of the door, I hung hooks and bought oversized hand towels to use as shower towels, one for each of us.
In the car I store a "cooking bag" which contains our propane
grill and everything I need to cook meals (lighter, plates, cups, pots and pans, another coffee pot, etc.) We also pack the cooler in the car and our chairs. Since we cook outside, it makes sense to us to have the cooler and cooking supplies easily transportable to the table. It also makes it really easy to put them in the bear box at campgrounds.
Since our camper is stored away from our house, when we get ready to go camping, it's easy for me to grab the cooler and cooking bag from the garage and begin packing them days in advance of picking up the camper. Then when we get it, all we have to do is add the clothing and we are off!
Enjoy your camper!
