Still figuring out how to do pictures, so here is a description of them in order from the top: 1] bed in rear showing a fold down counter extension that we just installed, 2] slide out storage baskets we installed under the bed, 3] shelves in closet with drawer under one shelf and Scamp 12V light on wall, 4] slide out drawer where furnace was removed, and storage opening below it, 5] drawer and storage closed, 6] looking in from outside with wall hangings on left, 7] dorm fridge, stove cover, counter extension and storage basket, 8] front couch, storage shelf under window that a previous owner made, 9] rear view, TV antenna, RecVee decal to cover repair where some rental customer backed into something and poked a hole right through!

Great storage ideas. I like what you did with the old furnace compartment and the added door below that. The space below the furnace is wasted, as built.

I was betting bob that you would be the first to reply Tom, i love the pull out drawer he did for my toaster etc and then more wasted space under that so he made himself a shoe closet, becuase he takes so many shoes

I admit, I've been UHaul fan ever since I rented one in about 1985. I need more space for all my shoes and boots, too.

Mary, is that your handiwork on the walls?

No wonder you do not want the 16' VT in NY. You don't need the additional space. You have it perfect! Very sharp looking!

Beautiful job! But now I want a picture when you are actively camping. Does it stay that neat and organized? Our trailer usually looks like a tornado went through it when we're camped for a few days. Maybe it's just us!

Oh Mary & Bob...I love what you have done with the place! So Cheery and Warm. Great idea on the sliding shelves, I need to take a closer look at this. How on earth did you find sliders to fit? Also am glad I am not the only one to choose carpet for the floor, it helps make it warmer. Great job, thanks for posting!

No its not just you, that's why I asked him to do the shoe closet and he hung some hooks to hang jackets on, he has a habit of loading any flat space so the two drop down shelves he put on both sides of the sink and stove may get stacked with books etc, we're getting better about being organized, in such small quarters you have to

Ha, Kevin..I just tell folks who want to peek inside that Looks like mine has been vandalized. Hard to keep neat in a small space.

Mary & Bob, is that a silverware drawer I see in your closet? I am so jealous....
can you tell me more about it? And how did you find or make the sliders and drop down stainless doors on the furnace openings. They are so special.

Diane: About the sliding baskets; we bought the baskets at Home Depot, mounted them on ball bearing 24" drawer slides that are laid on their sides, and fastened it all to a piece of plywood that is screwed to the floor. I made a stop piece to keep them in place while traveling. I had to cut and narrow one basket because the two together was a little too wide. The sliding basket/drawer that is in place of the furnace came from Camping World. After I removed the furnace I installed a light in the vent opening, then a piece of plywood where the furnace sat and mounted the sliding drawer onto it. The face piece is leftover aluminum from my Scamp side window project with a turn latch as is the storage compartment door below the former furnace area. As for the carpet, that's kind of a joke. A previous owner had installed new carpet right over the original, covering up the table pedestal support, and installing a new one more forward of the original. Due to other projects on the trailer we have just left the carpet as is, will replace it next year, but since it is in good shape it will do for the winter. The little drawer in the closet is also a Camping World item. They were on sale for around $20 each but now up to around $25. I think they are also available from Amazon. But note that in the ads they show two drawers side by side, but the price is for only one drawer. They are easy to install, we are thinking about a couple under the bed above the baskets as we replaced the Uhaul table with plywood, and maybe one under the center section of the front couch. I have also reinforced the seating/bed area as it all felt kind of flimsy to me. A previous owner had already made a repair at the left rear storage opening. Bob
