Scamp 13' best use of cabinet space

Hi
We have only taken two trips with our "new to us" 2014 Scamp 13'. We were wondering if some of you would share your ideas for the best use of cabinet space...shelving, etc.
We really like our little Scamp . Looking forward to taking many trips, seeing many sights and meeting such nice people as we have already.
Thanks,
Ann and Joe

We also have a Scamp 13. This is my favorite storage mod. The bins are very lightweight, fit the closet perfectly, require no permanent attachments, latch together to make a stable tower, and keep contents from falling out. It took some looking to find the right size. These came from Big Lots.

We also use small crates from Walmart to store spices, cups, bowls, and other small items in the upper galley cabinet. We cook outside, so it's easy to carry the whole crate to wherever we have our camp kitchen set up.

We have a similar set up in our closet as Jon. We use our shelves for clothing and hang bath towels on the inside of the door.

In our upper cabinets we store a small box that contains travel sized board games, crosswords, small coloring books, etc., the coffee pot and another small basket that contains paper cups, plates, coffee and tea, and another that contains small items like duct tape, cloths line, tiny rain poncho packets, and other odd misc items.

The sink cabinet contains cleaning supplies, trash bags, glasses, plates, a frying pan, lanterns, an inside sink drain container and batteries.

Under the sofa is our box of tools and chocks for the wheels and extra jack stands. We also store a small two person tent and the outdoor rug under there.

We also store the sleeping bags and blankets for the bunk under the two interior spaces under the sofa, and the bedding for the dinette is under the dinette bench.

Because we are weekend/vacation campers, I keep what I call the 'Kitchen bag" and the "food bag" in the car. The kitchen bag contains our Coleman grill and all plates, cooking utensils, small propane containers, etc. for outdoor cooking. The food bag is all of our dry food items for the weekend/vacation trip. We also carry a cooler and utilize our icebox in the camper for cold items.

You'll figure out what works for you! Happy camping!

Does your Scamp have the fiberglass end cabinets over the windows? Those add allot of storage. If you have the end cabinets a wire shelf between the closet and the end cabinet helps allot for storing soft stuff that may fall when traveling.
I also use a robo cup on the twisted steel supports by the sink

Thanks for some suggestions. We have the bathroom in the front. Two cabinets above the sofa on each side of the trailer.
You all really get the most out of the allotted space. That's what we're looking to do.
Thanks again!

As you can see, we tiny trailer owners can eek out a ton of storage in our rigs. (I don't recommend carrying a "ton" of weight, though) Basically storage starts with the adage, "Less is More". Really try to travel with a minimum of "stuff". Take what is essential and leave the rest home. Start with what you might bring on a backpacking trip and add on some "luxuries" from there. We did custom build wood shelves in the closet and find that was our best organizing decision. We use plastic "shoe boxes" to store all the small loose items and label each box. They are the best size to fit in all the "nooks and crannies".

That said, you'll notice that my moniker is "The Gleeful Glamper". I admit that I like to make my trailer camping experience a bit more comfortable. I do that through changing decors, achieved mostly with curtain panels, toss pillows and throw blankets. But I digress.

Do run a "Search" on this website with the "Search" button. Go to the drop-down menu to "Google Search" and enter the words "storage" or "decorating" and you'll find many ideas. If you add my name, "Gilda", you'll find my posts specifically. In the meantime here are some photos of my rig.

A few more photos...You can see the shelves, custom "shoe pockets" on the closet door (inside and outside), kitchen sink and upper cabinet organization.
