I think that one of the links posted above was for my upper cabinet food-storage solution, not the one for clothing storage. Here's the latter (I was wondering why I was getting off-thread questions when the link had been posted... because it turns out that a different link had been posted).

This is the perfect visual. Thanks! I cannot wait to show my husband.

Ours aren't so "round". So it should make cutting these easier. They are just weird spaces.

I attached a photo of the overhead storage along the wall.

What a great idea! We used the square fence post. I know this will work so much better than having to take a container out of the compartment and rifle through it to find the wanted item.

These plastic containers almost fit perfectly. From Home Depot or lowes. Just a little wasted space at the back/bottom.

We use these for packing clothes: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

And this goes across the front behind the drivers and passenger seat to hang the clothes we take off at night: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Have yet to pick up our 2017 Grand Tour (next week!), but trying to get organized ahead of time. Could anyone give me dimensions of the space below the rear sofa? Looking at these storage "bags" from Container Store and wanting the largest that will fit and not waste space...
Available sizes:
16" x 12" x 8" h
24" x 12" x 10" h
24" x 18" x 15" h
30" x 18" x 8" h

I have a ridged routine.

I open the overhead compartment door. I shove clothes in there. Then I close the overhead compartment door.

30" x 18" x 8" h

30 x 18 x 8 would fit.
Space under center without binding is 31 W x 20 D x 11 H This will clear bed slideout bracket, motor wiring and mechanism. The two doors under the rear seat will only allow items about 5" deep with a container in place. The space on the right side looking from the rear is about 24 x 12 but the support for the head extension board won't allow a rigid container to turn the corner to fit. I have a duffle bag 24x12x12 that twists enough to squeeze in the space. The built-in storage in the floor will fill up fast with hoses, power cords, and other necessary camping junk.
Congrats on the new Airstream. It can be at times

I would strongly suggest you get the packing cubes linked by Dalwyn a few posts back, or something similar, as you will find soft sides much more conducive to filling and using efficiently the small storage spaces.

I would definitely NOT recommend any rigid store box under the rear sofa. You will almost certainly need that space for all sorts of other things you'll eventually decide you need.
Examples that we carry: 2 folding bikes, folding chairs in bags, gas lantern, telescopic ladder, tool bag, RV tire pump. Lots of stuff that probably wouldn't fit anywhere else!
