Overhead cabinet storage dividers

Wifey doesn't want stuff sliding around, particularly kitchen stuff, clothes, etc in our new Escape. Also hates the "what's back there" dead space between doors. Decided to partition the cabinets with seamless dividers shaped to fit the need and the rear shape of the cabinets; could be anchored in place with Velcro tape for easy rearranging. This prototype is for plates; will add a mid-level shelf for smaller stuff.

One that is a bit narrower for smaller plates and bowls would be cool as well!

I love your organizational idea. In our Scamp we have 3 doors which open into one large open space in the overhead cabinet. I sometimes find I need to angle an item, such as a dinner plate, from one segment into another in order to get it out. When towing, I turn everything sideways and flat so they don't jostle too much, cutting down on scratches and breakage. I lined the bottom of all our cabinets with 1/2" foam (I cut up a traditional blue backpacking mattress closed cell foam pad). In addition, I inserted a wire shelf to give double the space inside the cabinet. http://www.containerstore.com/shop/k...uctId=10016995 Keep those ideas coming!

I use hot wire forming to create the bends exactly where I need them; the rest is pretty much like woodworking - make a template to create a tool that can be used on a shaper to route the shape for the rear of the overhead cabinet first, then create the 90 degree bend on each end (spaced as desired.)

Going to the Oregon NOG rally this weekend, will see what a few other Escape owners would change.

If you have specific questions, please PM me either through the forum or my website. I can only answer general questions on this forum specific to the parts I am installing in my trailer.

Decided to make a set like bookends work than can be adjusted for seasonal clothing, and a dedicated width one to fit wifeys favorite camping glasses.

Both are shaped to fit up against the rear side wall of our Escape but could be made to fit any trailer.

If you're going to the Oregon NOG this weekend I'll have these to play with.
