Those are some great ideas, Dannie! We like to keep tracked dirt out of the Interstate, as well as our home. Both are shoeless residences. Aside from dirt, on your shoes you bring into your living space all the chemicals and other undesirable residue from outside that you just don't really want to be living and walking barefoot amongst. Yuk! We just picked up one of those recycled flip-flop mats to use as a door mat---dirt will fall right through, they are colorful and roll up to easily store by the door.

Do you have a picture or link for your wine rack?

I can fix two of your problems.

1. Don't wear shoes.
2. Don't bathe.

Have not found them, did look at the one in #23, it is too small for a bath towel. Always a challenge living in a small space, but so worth the effort!
Hi, I just took a few pictures of my Chineese towel bars, and I found the link for the Winnebego guy.

Where do you put it? Medicine cabinet stuff.

Hi, I bought two clear plastic baskets with suction cups to help organize items stored in the lower medicine cabinet. [the suction cups are on the back side of the baskets and hold them in place] And I bought three plastic baskets, from the Chineese store for use in the upper medicine cabinet. Note: I trimmed about 1/4" off of each end of the basket's handles for an almost perfect fit.

The towel bars at the website in #32 look fantastic. They attach with some kind of super suction cup and are designed to be moved from inside to the outside of your rig to dry towels in the sun when you are parked! Going to order a couple, they look like exactly what we need. Thanks Robert!

Suggestion #1: Color Code your family.
I use this for towels, water bottles, calendar scheduling, anything that looks basically the same for each family member but needs to be identified by member.
(Dad-Green, Mom-Pink, Drew-Blue, Nick-Orange)
Suggestion #2: Add more bars and hooks. If drilling into your baby causes you heartache, use the removable adhesive variety.
We have added two double hooks in our bath. One on the back of the door and the other on a wall. We also put a hook in the hall across from our hall-shower. I use the existing towel bar to dry face cloths.
We added a long cabinet pull to the under-sink door which also dries face cloths.
Suggestion #3: Add loops to your towels.
This may sound goofy but we purchased Nick's orange towels at Ikea and they came with a loop of fabric on the long side at the point where you would naturally hang a towel on a hook. Wow, what a cool idea. His towels are never on the floor in the morning or after a day on the road. I plan to retrofit the other towels before our next trip.
Suggestion #4: Get a skinny trash can.
I love to look at other people's AS photos online. I saw a 19' CCD with a skinny lidded trash can in the small gap between the dinette seat and the galley cabinet. I don't know if your unit has such a gap but I was having a hard time figuring out where to put the trash in my 28' CCD when I came across this photo. I wanted to put it in the space by the door under the sofa arm but the space was so narrow. Since it would be out in the open I wanted it to have a lid. Well, that photo inspired me to look for a "skinny lidded can" but since I wanted to be able to use it while it was in its tight little space, it had to be hinged along the narrow side. With dimensions in hand, I scoured the internet but did not come up with what I wanted. Then I went to Bed Bath and Beyond and there it was! A sleek little stainless model with a black flip up top actuated by a step lever along the narrow dimension. Fits like a glove. To make it easier to remove from its little nook I had my husband add a cabinet pull to the front. I use purchased bags b/c most store bags have holes and I like to maintain a clean can. I also always store my replacement bags in the can. I do this at home too. Why? B/c then they do not take up valuable space, they are ready when needed and the family is less likely to toss trash in the unbagged can if they know there is something at the bottom that will get dirty.
Shoes storage: I cannot help you there. We have a CCD and the dinette is open below. We line our shoes there.

To hang towels I use the plastic hooks that have the removable tape that doesn't damage the walls. I believe 3M makes them. Walmart sells them. They come in various sizes. I have them in the shower on the bathroom door inside and out in the bathroom and bedroom. They hold a lot of weight. I hang belts,robes,clothes etc. in the bedroom. My Safari has a area under the kitchen sink for the trash and a cabinet and niche in the entry for shoes.
