Where Do You Put Your Trash Bag?

My wife and I love our 15 ft 2016 Parkliner. BUT.... we are stumped in one area. We've tried a multitude of places and methods to store our inside trash bag. But none seem to be practical and out of the way adequately.

With small rv internal storage options so limited, I would love to know great creative solutions y'all have come up with to store trash in your fiberglass RV.

Any good ideas?

Don't know if this will work for you, but I attached 3M Command hooks to the trailer door for an Orbis container. When the door is closed, it is inside, in an area that is only used to go in and out. When the door is open, we can access the trash from the inside and outside.
Extra trash bags are stored in the bottom of the container.

We hang a plastic grocery bag from the bathroom door handle with a small bungee cord knotted thru the handle so the two hooks hang down to catch the bag handles. Just make sure the bag has no holes in it.

I purchased a small plastic garbage pail (or pail) from the dollar store and a small plastic bag fits inside nicely and the whole thing fits in the cupboard that is under the sink/stove of our Surfside. Usually, when camping, we take the garbage away daily or even twice a day so it is plenty large enough.

Not an elegant solution -- but it works. In our Casita 17FD I put one of those plastic suction hooks on the fiberglass near the left corner of the sink. We simply bring along a lot of plastic grocery shopping bags, and hang the bag by one of the handles. The hook is positioned just high enough for the bottom of the bag to be supported by the counter ledge around the sink.

In our state, NY, the plastic grocery bags have been outlawed, stores can no longer use them. Like many people we used them for garbage, both on our house kitchen counter in a small container, and in our Casita in a small container that attaches to the wall. We have used those bags for so long that we were disappointed that they were no longer available. We had been hoarding them since we learned the stores would no longer use them. I found that they were still available on Amazon in bulk, so bought a box which should last us for a long time.

Same with us, we put a large rubber band around the bag where it overlaps the pail to keep the plastic open, keep it under the sink of our 16' Casita. It barely fits in front of the wheel well.

Also, We store a plastic rectangular bowl on top of the wheel well behind the garbage can, to use in carrying meal prep stuff outside to the table.

I have since trimmed out the compartment for trash can I cut in my Casita but this has worked great for us.

Edit... Don't know how my pics got up side down

A Trillium 4500 has a tip out door in the forward side of the bottom section of the closet. The box is about 4" deep. It's actually an access hatch to the back of the furnace, and converter on my 4500's. If you pull up and tip out the bottom, it comes right out. Since it is right by the trailer door, it is easily accessible from inside, or outside the trailer. However, it is not very big. Grocery bag sized at best.

The Escape 21 has a alcove directly across from the door, and at the food of the bed which was almost exactly right for a light weight plastic 'step to open' kitchen trash can. thats lined with a kitchen plastic trash bag.

I also tend to bring a couple 5G buckets, a blue one for recyclables, and another (white or green orsomethign) for trash, and each of these gets a plastic bag liner, they are used for outside trash

As I drive rural Wisconsin, I see plastic shopping bags in fields, fences, even in treetops. But until they are outlawed here, I will use one hanging from one of my many command hooks around the Scamp for my trash. (Planning can keep the trash to a minimum.)

In our Parkliner, I place a small narrow rectangular waste basket on the floor snugged up to left of the air conditioner. It fits the space, is out of the way and is just big enough to hold a plastic grocery bag.

I used to a hang a trash bag on a command hook but I tended to bump into it. Also the lovely hanging bag of garbage became the focus of my decor.

Ikea solution for trash

The Ikea Brogrund trash can holds 1 gallon bags(we got a lifetime supply form Amazon for cheap). It fits perfectlly fastened to the inside of the kitchen cabinet and can also be set on the counter for more convenience
