Closet hanging space in an Interstate

We are downsizing from a 345 to (we think) an interstate. It looks like the closet is about a foot across. I am just trying to estimate how many shirts and pants, etc. we can hang. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

We are leaning toward a 2004-2007 but still considering the pros and cons.

Thanks,
K

If I had the money and/or space for it, I'd make you an offer for your 345. I love these old motorhomes.

I have a 2007 rear lounge and the closet is 17" wide, unfortunately a hanger is 18"s. We can hang 10 hangers on an angle with thin summer shirts and blouses. Less with winter clothes. I rarely wear anything that needs hanging when we are using the Interstate so the closet size has not been a problem.

I have a 2012 rear lounge with wardrobe closet. I haven't measured the dimensions of the closet, but these hangers fit, and I have a full dozen in there with room to spare for broom and mop, etc.

I have an EXT with Lounge Wardrobe and have the wardrobe internal sizes:
Width: 24"
Height to rail: 58"
Depth at rail height: 17.5"
Large storage shelf on top.
There's also a small high-level wardrobe:
Width: 17"
Depth: 17"
Height: 32"
My wife and I don't take too many clothes - just the essentials - so we find this is plenty of space for our needs. Our shoes and other clobber go in the bottom of the larger wardrobe.
Hope that helps.
Peter

I ordered an extendable clothes hanging rod from Amazon and attached small hooks (from lowes) near the ceiling on both sides behind the rear seat (extended version) It works perfectly and we can hang all the clothes we want with room to spare. I suppose you could do the same with the standard version if no one was riding in the rear seat.

Can you provide a pic of that? Sounds interesting but I can't quite visualize where it would attach.

Don't know how much variation there is is closet sizes but my 14 twin measures 24" wide and 23" deep. I have 12 stay put hangers with room for 6 more. Good luck with your purchase.

Clothing takes up less space on wire hangers, we have found.

Those nice plastic ones that come in the pretty colors eat up a lot of space.

+1 I've been looking at hanging one from the ceiling behind the seat; a pic of how you did it would be great!

Any hooks you like, that attach with screws rather than tape, are excellent add-ons. The tape ones just don't stay well for clothing items.

We use them for jackets behind the drivers seat, also have put several on the inside of the bathroom door for damp-dry laundry on hangers.

Are about to add one to the inside of the closet door, as well.

I bought some cabinet hooks on line. We can hook them over the top of the bathroom and closet doors for extra hanging space when camping. We also have a few stick on hooks for hats above and behind the drivers seat. We like to think of our AS as a continual work in progress.
