[QUOTE=Jon in AZ;465114]I found them at "Big Lots!" - a local discount retailer. I did have to look around a bit before I found these that were just the right size. Since getting this trailer, I am learning to appreciate dollar stores & similar discount retailers! All of our camp dishes and throw pillows came from there as well. /QUOTE]

Jon, thank you for posting your closet mod and for mentioning Big Lots. Hubby and I went to Big Lots today and found the exact same bins. We will get much better use out of the closet now. We've seen many other closet mod ideas on this forum but have never got around to doing any of them.

This was quick and easy. Although, even though we bought a milk crate for the bottom, I'm thinking of not even using it and just using the bottom of the closet for dirty clothes storage like Paul and Roger suggested.

Big Lots had lots to offer for camping and I went a little bin crazy and bought many other various sized bins for the rest of the camper.

Linda, your idea is also quick and easy. However, I like the open storage bins. I've learned after unpacking from many trips that out of sight = out of mind. If I don't see something right in front of me, I forget that I even brought it along.

Many a times after a camping trip I've "found" things in the camper and thought "oh this is neat, I forget that we have that" or "oh we could have used that".

Glad it helped, Wendy!

I just got back from a week at a church camp 4 miles down a rough dirt road. A lot of stuff ended up on the floor, but nothing from the closet.

Dear Jon,
Very creative indeed! I did my Scamp closet shelves using the PVC pipe support idea and cedar plywood ordered from Homey D. Beauty is in the simplicity of the design - so Bravo to you!

Jon do you think it is necessary to have the extra support of the upside down black bin over the wheel well? We just added bins like yours (from the Container Store, the Basic Stack Basket is a perfect fit) to our closet this weekend. Only I cut the legs off of the bottom one so the whole thing would sit flat, but now I'm worrying that it will be too heavy on the wheel well. Thinking I may use your modification of adding a base to ease my mind. I plan to store clothing in the bins, one bin per person. Thoughts?

Scamp Closet Shelves - Quick & Inexpensive

The purpose was to provide a flat surface for the bins to rest on, since mine don't have legs. I also needed to raise them up a bit, because the closet opening doesn't go all the way down to the level of the wheel well. I don't think you need to worry about the wheel well. It's pretty sturdy.

Eventually I plan to cut a second opening in the lower part of the closet and put in a permanent divider between the upper and lower sections. Then the bins will rest directly on the partition, and the lower section will be usable again.

THANK YOU!

I could also see where a second opening down below would be a lovely thing to have!
