Looking for ideas / overhead storage

So in our little joe like mist small trailers... the table makes into the bed
Iím looking for ideas ( ie mesh net) or something to hang from side cabinets to hold our bedding ( blankets & pillows)
During the day so we can use the table & benches during bad weather
Other than a net or mesh closet shelf any other ideas

You can attach a shelf to the bottom of your upper cabinets up front. Wide wire closet shelving is light weight and works for some. Just stuff your bedding up there during the day.

I have put a shelf between the upper rear cabinets in a couple of Scamps for bedding storage. My Lil Joe is in parked in Fl. for the summer but the front shelf is on my list of modifications one we return in Oct.

As all you are trying to do is get the bedding stored up there.

You could roll your bedding and just use some buckle or velcro hook straps to hold it up there. Just like blanket rolls behind a saddle. That will be the simplest of installations. All you need to make it work is to install some metal foot loops to feed the straps through. Your local hardware store will have the fittings and the straps too.


But for my own needs I just fold my summer time bedding flat and store it right under the cushions. They keep the sheets and lightweight blankets nice and flat

I leave my bedding on my bed. We've stopped using a top sheet, and instead use a cover on the comforter, it makes keeping the bed made much simpler.

Weíve done the same at home for years. Works great.

However, the OP has a very small trailer in which the bed needs to be stowed for daytime use of the dinette, so whatever bedding is used, it has to go somewhere.

It would be helpful to see a photo of the interior that shows whatís there and how itís laid out in order to suggest attachment points. In general I prefer to attach to interior cabinets rather than the shell itself when possible.

Thanks to all for ideas
My trailer is currently in storage so I donít have any pics
But yes my idea is to figure out a way to hid / roll up and store or just store from a shelf/net

Storage

I attached wire mesh closet shelves to the bottom of my front and rear cabinets on my Scamp 13. Mounted the front shelves with 1/4" all-thread, fender washers and nylok nuts. The rear shelves are fastened directly to the bottom of the rear cabinets with 1/4" bolts, nylok nuts and fender washers. Easy installation and good for storing light stuff, pillows, bedding, coats, etc.
