On the fiberglass we have used suction cup hooks and 3 M command hooks. Both are removable but the command hooks stay up better. We also have a suction cup soap holder to hold things other than soap.

Our trailer is fiberglass so I guess the suction cups would work best for us - or command hooks - will have to google that and see what and how they are/work. Thank you

ps. Just googled them - can command hooks be removed without damaging the fiberglass?

Never removed one but in theory yes. As I recall there is a Canadian version (probably also made by 3M) but the name escapes me. I bet Canadian Tire has them, they seem to have everything.

Command Hooks can be removed without damage, IF you read and follow the instructions. So, don't throw the instructions away.
There are different ones for wet applications, but I've used the regular in the shower with no issues.

Yes! Yes they can!! I use these EVERYWHERE, both in my house (backpacks, hats, coats, etc.) and in the Scamp. I LOVE THEM! I remove them and move the hooks around all of the time. I love the velcro ones for this purpose, but I use all sorts. Over the 4th of July, I used small clear ones on the outside of the Scamp to hold up battery operated lights around the window. When the trip was over, easy, quick removal. They leave zero residue and it's like they were never there.

I put open cabinets in part of my bathroom and bedroom in the house. Why? Because when I moved in to the old house in 1994 we put things in cabinets and in 2014 I took them out. Closed cabinets are a good way for a packrat like me to stash useless stuff. So I like that netting idea very much, at least for some cabinets. Doors in the kitchen are fine- you use everything there or at least most of it. But open shelving not only makes it easier to find things but it encourages slightly more neatness.
