Storage tips

I'm trying to get some ideas and glean advice from some more seasoned fiberglass campers.

We can 2 adults and 2 kids (and one Boston Terrier) in a 16' scamp. Front bunk & bathroom layout. Right now we use the bathroom to see luggage (and not as a bathroom). My wife really likes the idea of having a use toilet middle of the night callings.

So where does every one store their luggage? Anyone else who routinely sleeps 4? Do we need to just be more creative, accept getting clothes means digging under cushions to the storage cubbies? Get out of the mindset of using cabinets like we would in a house (plates here, towels here) and just stuff them all full with whatever fits?

I'm curious to hear your ideas!

Most trips require less "stuff" than you might think. So the first thing would be to minimalize the stuff.
If you don't have upper cabinets on the ends, they can me added.
Another idea is to go to the junkyard and get a few of those cargo nets from cars or vans. With a couple of hooks, these can be strung between open spaces and "stuffed" with "stuff".
Get a flat garment bag and fill it with extra clothing like T-shirts and underwear, and lay it flat or hang it in the tow vehicle.
Also one thing which is often overlooked is the inside quarterpanel storage in most SUVs and minivans.
Kids are generally shorter than adults which means they could each have a container placed in the rear seat footwell even extending under the front seats of the TV without interfering with foot room.
Use a cloth bag for underwear and socks or extra sweatshirts. then cover it with a pillow case and use it in place of a throw pillow or a sleeping pillow.

We camp with four in a 13' Scamp. What has worked for us is a duffle in the back of the tow vehicle for each person. Take out only what you need before going to bed. It's also nice to have the extra clothes with you when you're out exploring away from camp- you never know when an emergency or sudden change in weather will happen.
