Coroplast privacy screen for the Interstate, for those times when it is desirable to have a bit of sleeping separation between non-spousal travel companions. Sourcing, sizing, construction, and safety tips in the post.

Nice idea! From the pictures of your rear "jackknife" twin beds is see why you like that arrangement - much more usefull than the folding lounges now in the AI.

Kitchen sink mat repurposed as a utensil holder for the Interstate. The knotted sewing elastic loops can be repositioned at will to accommodate whatever is needed, and the utensils don't make any noise as they bump up against the soft plastic. Sourcing and installation instructions given in the post.

We came across one of these...a Camco Knife Safe...at an RV dealer years ago, which is still in use in the Interstate.

Very inexpensive, installs easily, widely available, and holds the knife assortment I seem to feel is necessary.

Have you seen the little reusable twist ties? They are silicone/rubber coated and "grab" really well. We use them to tie open the fridge door when not in use. These might work ok for the door mounting of utensils or bundling the utensils in a drawer to minimize the "jingling". Just lay the item next to the tie and a quick twist and you are done.

Those sound great, Channing....where can you find those?

My utensil drawer, with silicone spatulas of various sizes, in particular, is a fright most of the time.

Those would be a great solution for items of the same ilk.

I use those clear plastic, sticky backed, hooks on the inside of another door, for collapsing measuring cups and a set of nesting measuring spoons.

Thank you, Channing.

I have some of these up in the cabinet over the microwave, and over the small shelf in the wardrobe.

Great for using that empty vertical space, hold things still, and allow you to place your hands quickly on something like a bottle of Tylenol.

They are for spice storage/organization, with very, very sticky backs. They stick so well they are hard to get off.

Good for meds, extra tubes of face and body wash, etc.

Google "spice clips". There are lots available thru different sellers.

That is a great product. I thought about getting something like that, but I'm trying to pare it down to just those pieces that I absolutely need. If only they made one that would also hold utensils as well as knives.

I continue to be amazed at what is NOT for sale to RV-ers such that one must fashion that stuff oneself. There are at least 800,000 RVs on the roads in America alone - the market would seem to be there. And yet if you go to (for instance) RV Wholesalers and look at their "space savers" category, they list just 10 products, of which 4 are slight variations of the same product. Anyway, it's a great business development idea for someone.

Between Class As, 5th wheels, and Class Cs with a 10-foot rear overhang behind the axle, apparently it's easier to just provide more space in RVs than it is to save space.
