Mesh hamper or laundry bag in the shower. We usually depend on campground showers so it is out of the way there.

We stow our dirty laundry in one of the lockers above our mid twins.

I guess when I finally finish my renovation I will have more room as I can put tools in tool shed instead of trailer. I am living in argosy while renovated and I guess it is always a mess because of this. I dream of the day of completion. So far I have replaced the lights with leds, installed a full size sink in kitchen, removed one single bed to build an office/art studio, repaired water systems, Installed new battery, removed old univolt, repaired wheel wells that had been "patched" rather than repaired, repaired broken door handle, replaced gas lines that were dry rotted, placed on pedestal for easier acesss and made new baffles.....I guess I am doing more than I thought. thanks for listening.

Hi, our trailer was built with two large plastic containers under the foot of our queen bed; We use those.

I have a collapsable laundry basket similar to post #5 but tall instead of wide while holding dirty clothes. (Lowes or Home Depot has)

I found a huge carbiner clip at Home Depot or Lowes. I put the handle through the carbiner clip and clip over the clothes rod in the shower and fill as we go.

There is likely room for 2 bags to sort the light and dark clothing.

When it is time to take a shower just unclip and then put back in after the shower. THis works very well in my 86 Motorhome.

For washing the "fermented" clothes, add 1/2 cup white vinegar to the water as you begin the was cycle. This will take out the mildew smell and somewhat soften the clothes at the same time so you wont need fabric softener unless you have fleece. For those, I just hang to dry.

OUr previous owner added a cabinet door to the face of the cabinet below that, so you don't have to lift the wardrobe floor to access the pump etc.

Love these ideas!

I bought tall plastic baskets for a sorter - they proved untenable. I'm back to the foldup bags.

Simple, cheap & flexible.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

My ’72 Tradewind with the wet bath has a “hamper” behind the toilet.
When you lift the top off the compartment there are snaps around the inner edge. I would assume at one time there was a drawstring bag that snapped into the cabinet.
For now we keep a mesh bag in the hamper. It would be nice to reproduce a bag with snaps that stays open so we could lift the lid and just drop the cloths in.
