just a simple shelf

I was finding that the kitchen countertop was getting cluttered with misc. stuff by about day 2 of an outing so I installed this 5" wide shelf to hold the junk while I'm camped. likely won't travel with anything on it or hanging from if but it'll work just fine I think.

used those "L" brackets with the 1/4" pin on them... so the shelf has a little play while the trailer is being bounced around on the road.

Cup hooks is a good idea!
I also made a simple shelf for my CPAP unit, and as a place for my glasses and wallet while sleeping. Think I could add cup hooks like yours to make it better.
One picture shows the CPAP machine, and the other without. I used longer screws on the stove side, and carriage bolts running through PVC pipe on the right side to support it to the cabinet. Also added a 12 volt switchable outlet above the CPAP for when boondocking.

I hung three little baskets above our sink for those little miscellaneous items that always seem to clutter up the counter space. I bought the baskets at Office Depot for $1.50 each, tied them together with mini-zip ties, and hung them on three of the 3-M adhesive hooks.

Ray Great idea and I particularly like the way you hung the baskets ! We eggers are always looking for ways to affix needed storage without penetrating the shell. Lee

Good idea, and I actually got to see the real thing in person yesterday. You have a nice looking EggCamper, Ray. Happy to have met you and Voe.

Hello,
Here is a photo of some little racks purchased at Home Depot
that were installed in my Trill. Sheet metal screws with large
washers were used to mount them. They stood up to a 4700
mile road trip with various thing in them such as soy sauce bottle,
coffee cups, dish soap, spices, etc. They proved to be very handy
as I prefer to cook my meals instead of eating out.
