16 ft Scamp garbage storage

I have a 16 ft. Scamp and to this date we haven't really come up with a logical temporary storage method for our garbage. We use a small bucket and sometimes place the bucket under the table or as out of the way as possible. There is not enough room to put it under the sink. Can't help but think there must be a better answer to this issue.
Has anyone com up with a good means of garbage storage?

We have two brass hooks mounted on the back of an under counter cabinet door. We hang little plastic bags from 'where ever' on these two hooks. WE sometimes tie a little knot in the handle of the bag depending on the bag source, usually grocery store or Walmart.

A bag lasts about a day, is totally out of site, free and waterproof.

I purchased a narrow rubbermaid waste basket (suspect it was designed for use in a bathroom) that fits nicely under the sink in-between the cabinet door and the wheel well. Takes small white garbage bags. Does not move at all when underway .

I hang a grocery plastic bag on a command hook under sink. Lasts a day, throw away in dumpsters or garbage can in campground on my evening walk. Never have food trash in bag overnight, just paper products. Works out. Carl

Not familiar with layout of your Scamp, but my Escape has a space that is only used to exit and enter the trailer. I used 3M Command hooks to hang the garbage container on the door. Easily accessible from inside or out, and not in the way.

We have the Scamp, 16 ft DLX with front bathroom.
We hang plastic grocery bags from the bathroom door knob.
Our collapsible dirty clothes hamper sits inside the entry door at night.

For a dirty clothes hamper we extended the Scamp's closet downward creating a separate enclosed space with it's own door. We keep a laundry bag in there and it's adequate for one week of dirty clothes.

We've used the little plastic shopping bag on the inside of an under counter closet door for 8 years. In the Scamp it's in the area. of the hot water heater, not a very effective area for most items. Beside the bag we have a traditional RV plastic bag container for storing these same plastic bags.

We have a 97 Scamp 16'. We have a small plastic waste paper basket that fits under the sink. It serves double duty as it is the exact height necessary to support the table top when I make up the bed. The Table top had developed a couple of 1" distortions at each cut back to make room for getting in and out of the dining seats. The basket support solved the problem.
Dirty cloths go in a hanging bag in the bath.

We keep a large net laundry bag in the tire well area of the Scamp closet. Our trash goes in a small metal trash can with foot pedal for opening lid, lined with plastic grocery bag. It takes very little floor space and has a "loop" on the back with which we anchor it with bungee cords when towing.

Got it at Canadian Tire. I expect you can find it anywhere.

In our Scamp we used a soft plastic magazine holder mounted with very strong magnets (supplied) to the refrigerator door and lined with a shopping bag. Worked well. Unfortunately, our ParkLiner came with a non-magnetic refrig door, so I'm reading these responses with interest!
