Egg Camper half closet

The shape is a right triangle with the longest side curving away from the inside. No closet rod. I'd like to put some sort of storage compartments or shelves in it. Cannot attach anything because the bottom is removable for electric cord storage access and the curved side is the fiberglass outside wall. Looking for ideas. Only had the E.C. for a week and is still unused. Any ideas will be appreciated. Thanks.

We pack our clothes in duffel bags and throw them in that closet, along with the dirty clothes bag. It's also a great place for extra blankets, sleeping bags, pillows, etc. I put shelves in the other closet and made it a lot more useful - you can see modification done by me and others by going to the "trailer registry" and selecting Eggcamper in the "advanced search" area. I've considered replacing the cord storage locker with a "shore power" plug like used on boats; I think that cpaharley has already done that, (as well as other neat modifications); then you could use nearly the entire closet and put in shelves without getting in the way of the access floor.

If your trailer has a door that you open and reach in for the electrical cord, Camping World has a kit that replaces that door with a 30a three prong twist lock just like the boat shore power connection.

I like mine and gained all that room. )

to cpaharley...it's the street side half closet. It's kinda hard to comprehend but our Egg Camper has MORE closet space than our 31 ft Kodiak.

Thanks for the photos. How did you attach the streetside shelves? My Egg has an electric cord hatch on the outside but not a detachable cord.

The detachable cord is a kit bought from CW and is a modification. I did not like the opening in the hatch that may allow critters.
The shelves are attached via strips of wood glued to the fiberglass exterior, have held for 4 years now, you can see a sample piece of wood glued in one of the above pictures (#6) inside the streetside, this is attached to the shower wall and is braced to outside wall.

Have you fastened it in or anchored it in any way?

I made it out of two of them, they are expandable, just remove the top plastic plate add a drawer and replace top.

I did anchor it, the plastic housing is screwed to the wood shelf on the bottom, and I drilled holes in front of each drawer and put a rivet as a stop.

Look close at the pic and you can see the anchor screws in the bottom through the drawer, and you can also see the rivet stops.
