Scratching My Head Over Closet

I have just been standing in front of my closet in my new to me 2006 19" CCD Bambi. I really am at a loss on how to get good use of such great space. I travel about 130 nights a year for work. The only hanging garments would be four workshirts. I tried putting one plastic draw in, but eh, it was just ok. Does anyone have ideas or photos of how to actually use the closet? I appreciete it. I could have a couple of shelves built. I would love to attend a rally to see your talented mods, but at this time, does not look like an option. sbb

I know just what you mean! We recently had shelves built on one side of the closet. The other side remains an area for hanging clothes - we just don't take that many when camping. I love it!!!!! I can store so much more. Mark and Kerry ( jupitorj) made them and installed them for us. Maybe they have a template ?? I'll have my husband post a picture when he gets home tomorrow.

Even when I don't put a lot of clothes in mine, the closet in my Interstate becomes the repository for anything long or tall that won't fit into any of the other storage spaces. Including a broom, mop, and an ingenious folding stepladder that folds to a bundle 4"×4"×60". The closet floor generally holds the mesh basket that I use as a combination laundry basket/hamper. That way, I don't have to use the wet bath as a storage space. So, instead of shelves or drawers that would reduce the height of the space, I use a variety of hanging organizers when I need to temporarily subdivide the closet space.

Sbb, check out this link for the Blog by Valmog (user on this site) in Portland. They have a 16' and I like what they did for storage space in the tiny closet. They are my heroes when it comes to using their 16' Bambi. Someday I hope to be more like them.

We tried stacking shelves and immediately pulled them because they would shift in travel and knock the closet door open, spilling everything onto the floor.

Our small closet is an ongoing source of frustration, a space we have yet to master and use efficiently.

It is about 2/3 deep, rather than full length. Too much wasted space. Do not like. Me like space efficiency.

We have put up a few small hooks, and store a few things on the floor, but it's just not good. Have thought about having one of those closet organizer install folks take a look at it.

This drawer system travels well. It just fits in the closet from front to back so the closet door prevents the drawers from moving.
