Sport--two interior decorating questions

1. Does anyone replace their blinds with curtains? Can you give me details, like how you remove the blinds' hardware?

2. Where do you put a trash can while in the trailer, and what kind? We're going to have two dogs travelling with us, and they are, let us say, inquisitive. (Ours is a 22 Sport, so not a lot of spare room.)

We found a skinny trash can that fits next to the toilet, on the right side as you face it.

We have a 16' sport, even less room for a trash can. Constantly moving it around on the floor. But it works and loving the AS. Interested in seeing what others do

Same here. Back by the beds during the day, (one of those simple human stainless models with the pedal top) and under the table at night. We also got some hangers we use for plastic store bags that we hang inside the bathroom door. They are for paper trash only. While traveling the can goes up in front of the pull out drawer in the dinette.

In our 16' we keep the garbage can in the bottom of the closet. Is out of the way and most importantly off of the floor. We have precious little floor space to begin with!

We use a wet bag with a zipper top. I found it on Etsy. They're used a lot as diaper bags. It's got a loop that we use to hang the bag from a hook. It's easy and out of the way. Then we throw it in the laundry when we get home. Easy.

TRASH: I used to tie a plastic supermarket bag on the handle to the door under the sink. Now I have a metal coat hook mounted on the wall opposite at below waist height. I keep lots of plastic market bags in the bottom shelf under the sink. Yes, they are small, but I don't like to have trash inside very long. It is quick access and out of the way. I have too much other stuff in the tiny closet, to add a trash can.

I also added 3 more towel rags. One above the sink to the left, one large one next to the trash (bath towel size), and one washcloth size inside the bathroom/shower door.

Just unscrew the blinds and put rivets in the old holes. We replaced the blinds with shades from Oceanair.

We have an over the door towel bar on the cabinet under the sink. We reuse plastic market bags by sliding the handles on the bar and letting it hang next to the towel by the pocketdoor. Like Rich, the trash is taken out more frequently. It works for us.

We used plastic grocery bags on a small, over-cabinet hook for years, but tired of their tacky appearance and frequent holes/tears that would allow things like coffee grounds to drip.

There is simply no room in a very small space for a rigid garbage can.

Trying to be more green, and use reusable shopping bags, we traded one plastic for another.

Went last year to Brawny's 3.2L black, trash can liners you can find at WalMart and other grocers....not all stores carry them.

They have pull-ties, blend better with the interior and are predictably free of holes and tears.

They are inexpensive, and I just like them better.

We use two cans in our trailer. The smaller one sits between the dinette and the kitchen/galley. It is very "cute" and very tiny:

Amazon.com - simplehuman Countertop Trash Can, Brushed Stainless Steel, 1.5 Liters/ .4 Gallons - Counter Top Trash Can

The other can sits on the wheel-well section of the bathroom - on the big hump to the right of the toilet as you're sitting on it. We place it outside the bathroom when we shower, although it would probably be just fine in there. This can optionally uses custom bags that fit perfectly, but obviously you can use the bag of your choosing if you aren't picky about how it fits:

Amazon.com - simplehuman Round Step Trash Can, Fingerprint-Proof Brushed Stainless Steel, 4.5-Liter /1.2-Gallon - Waste Bins

Amazon.com: simplehuman Custom Fit Trash Can Liner A, 4.5 Liters / 1.2 Gallons, 30-Count (Pack of 4): Health & Personal Care

Bed Bath and Beyond makes a slim plastic trash can (in silver) that fits perfectly next to the toilet. It doesn't even move when traveling. That is what we use.

Thanks for the lead on the silver trash can. Bought one today. Big improvement over the hot pink one we were using.
