Here are a few more organization tips I've used.
1. Pockets, pockets, pockets! You can see by the photo that I go a little crazy with pockets. I sewed custom net pockets onto curtains. I sewed custom pockets which hang on the "rat fur" with the "hook side" of Velcro and/or "cubicle clips" (from Staples stores). The bed is bordered with a baby crib "bumper" held on with "hook side" Velcro. I simply tuck unbreakable things, such as books or flashlight, behind the bumper. The bumper also prevents you from hitting that darn metal hardware under the back window or from soiling the "rat fur". The bumpers are removable for cleaning. Even pillowcases can be used to store clothing such as jackets!
2. This photo shows my "glamping" table setting for fall
. The storage tip is to use trays. The two trays are not only used for place settings but also for carrying things from the trailer to the table, and back. The center tray holds decorative items as well as salt and pepper, napkins, lantern, etc. All the trays fit in the closet.

4. My DH (darling husband) custom-built wood shelves in the closet. This is a bit tricky to do, but someone with good woodworking skills can do it. The shelves themselves are less than 1/4" thick to save on weight
. The bottom shelf is "free-standing" and has a finger-hole so you can lift it. This wheel-well space is deep and awkward. As such, it is good for a net laundry bag. We also put lightweight tarps, tablecloths and seat pads here. Also note the pockets on the inside and outside of the closet door. We use so many small things in the trailer and need them handy so this is our solution. The trick is to keep the items very light
so the door hinges are not strained. In addition, we have two over-cabinet door hooks (Bed, Bath and Beyond) that hold towels or lightweight jackets.
Of course, no camping trip is complete without an easy-care fuzzy companion!
Happy Camping and Happy Glamping!
