What are some suggestions for placement of a trash can in a 13' scamp.

We don't have a 13' - ours is a 17', but we still do not use a trash can. We hang a plastic bag (from the grocery store).. over a hook ... when filled - Jim needs the exercise and takes the bag and dumps it. I hang a new bag up. Works for us...

For dry trash I made a half circle frame. Attached it to the inside of the tall door under the under sink. Attached a piece of cork above the frame. Now I can stick a baggie through the frame and use a spring clamp to hold the baggie on one side. Use push pins to hold the other side. When it's time to empty simply remove and replace with another baggie.

We carry a varity of plastic bags to put the wet garbage in. If we're in a campground we dispose of wet garbage right away. If boondocking we have large zip lock bags that will seal and easy to carry out.

In my 91S13, I have an Empire ventfree LP heater mounted to the fiberglass just below the closet -- Between the heater and the step-up, I keep a small trash can (sized to fit plastic grocery bags) and it is held in place with a bungee between the heater and the stepped-up floor -- The bungee is also fastened to the outside of the basket and pulls it down slightly and against the wall, so it hardly ever tips, even on really rough roads, but the contents sometimes bounce out on the bad ones...

Joe,

We bought a Bag Valet (Catalog Item # 26836) from Camping World and mounted it on the door under the sink. Check the measurements to make sure it will fit on your door.

We don't have a well-sorted location, but we do have a practice of using plastic grocery bags, one for garbage, one for returnable containers (e.g. pop bottles and cans), and one for recyclable materials (paper, etc). Rigid containers always take up space, whether filled or not, while bags can expand with increasing contents, just as the bulk of supplies dwindles.

So far, we have been hanging the garbage bag from the closet door handle and putting the others in the cabinet over the dinette.

Garbage goes out to the campground container daily. I wouldn't go with only an outside can within our site, because I don't want to be going in and out frequently, and no container which we would be willing to carry and use would be resistant to intrusion by animals. I think it is an important responsibility of campers to control their garbage to avoid causing problems with animal management - luring bears (for instance) into campgrounds and thus causing human/bear interactions is bad for both sides.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I put 2 hooks on the closet door. One I hang my coat on and the other has a plastic bag from target, wal-mart or where ever. I use it for a garbage bag, and take it outside to a plastic garbage can when getting full. Plastic garbage can gets dumped into campground dumster.

For inside use a small plastic waste basket, lined with a plastic bag, kept under the sink. It also doubles as a carryall for detergents and cleaners when on the road. For outside use a Garbage bag on the tongue. All garbage is taken to the camp cans after supper. We don't leave anything out overnite for the critters.

And if you're not in a campground with garbage cans?

We are also in a larger trailer. The Fiber Stream has a compartment on the floor next to the entry door. We added a hinged lid to it, and store clean grocery plastic bags there to use as trash can liners.

Rubbermaid has a lidded plastic container with a bail handle that they market as a bulk detergent container; we use it as a garbage can. It sits on top of the lid of the compartment I spoke of earlier.

Recycleable containers get placed next to the "trailer trash" during the day. At night I bag them and put them in the cargo net in the back of the minivan.

I have converted my rear dinnette to a permanent bed. My porta potti and small rectangular rubbermaid bin go under it and a dust ruffle hides both from peoples eyes and doggies noses.

In our tall closet we have made drawers and at the top we have a nice shelf where all the pots and pans go--I have a small swing top garbage can in there--doesn't hold much, but is out of the way.. When travelling it will hold a LARGE bottle of wine!!!!
