Trillium closet shelving project

Thought I'd post some pictures of the shelves we built last weekend in our Trillium 1300. A pretty standard setup of PVC framing and MDF board which we coated a few times with some poly. For the big closet, I ran insulation foam around the edges to help eliminate any shifting and to keep the shelves from digging into the camper's insulation. I also ran a U shape support off the side, under the window to help further support the shelving frame. It doubles as a towel rack! Our propane grill and heater go on the floor, blankets, pillows and dry food up top. FYI...Lowes sells the bungee cords with the 1" hooks on the end which worked out perfectly other than having to tie a knot in each one to shorten them a bit.
For the smaller closet, which will be for clothes, we went with smaller PVC (I think it was 3/4" and no insulation around the shelves. Still fits snug though, no shifting.

Thanks! Using MDF was the way to go as there were a number of re-cuts needed. It was also very easy to sand down the edges for a more finished look. One thing I didn't mention was I glued all of the PVC fittings so they don't shake loose during travel.

I think, what you refer to as "the big closet" is in fact intended to be a small bath room. But big closet is probably more accurate. I also have a 1300, with a big closet.

You're right about that! When we bought this camper, the first thing we did was remove the portable toilet. We would much rather have the storage space.
