We have a wonderful cabinet company, Dozier Cabinets, who built pull out shelving, exactly as you have in your kitchen, in order that nothing gets lost in the back. It works perfectly for us. Good luck.

These are the cloth shelves I mentioned earlier in this thread. I finally got around to putting the video together on our youtube site.

As others haave done, we installed a drawer unit from the Container Store. Works great.

BUT, as cwf mentioned earlier, the closet floor will NOT support the kind fo weight that some people may want to store in the closet. We had to reinforce the closet floor directly down to the trailer subfloor in order to obtain sufficient strength to store pantry type items in the closet.

My Shelving Solution In my 2012 25' Flying Cloud

Here is a post that I did back in 2014 on how I added shelving to our 2012 Flying Cloud 25'. I think this turned out nice and is totally removable if the next owner doesn't like it. I give detailed instructions in the post

Seeing that others did it successfully, I tried to add the Elfa drawers to half of my double closet in a 30', and was disappointed to find that although they have a 14w x 21d frame to fit my 14x22 closet, it doesn't fit into my particular 22" deep closet with enough frame clearance for the drawers to open or to fit around the lower and middle door hinges. This is on a 2015 30' International. I'm sure I saw pictures from others who did this, but I can't see how to make it work in mine.

Do they not go into the closet or do the drawers not open once the frame is in the closet? We have a 2014 30FC. We had to remove the closet door and hinges to get the shelf frame into the closet but after it was in the drawers open fine around the hinges.

The frame is a bit too long to fit front to back. When it's deployed at the 14" width, the frame wants to be exactly where the hinges attach to the wall. Here are some pics.
I'm hoping I'm not seeing something, but even if I scribe a quarter inch out of the back shelf, I don't think it'll fit.

Sorry this isn't going to work for you. Our closet must be bigger. Or our shelf in the back of the closet is smaller. You might be able to make the lip on that back shelf smaller and it might fit.

Yup, darn. It looks like you have more clearance. The space-wasting shelf at the back of my closet is 7.5" deep. I should have given that measurement yesterday! I'm guessing your shelf is not as deep back there.
Thanks so much for your help here though.

I just received a suggestion from Howard here on the forums to use the 17.25" deep "cabinet depth" frame with the 21" drawers. They can stick out without harm. So I'll try that before returning everything!

Adding okea pull out drawers to pantry

Ours work fine but the hinges do have to be changed to the appropriate hinge to allow the door to open back further. On the pantry door, the door now has a gap on the closure side but it still works fine. While travelling, we use a bungee cord wrapped around the door handle to make certain the door does not fly open which it did do even before we made the change. Works well for us & i love to be able to access the items in the back easily.

I could take a couple photos & try to post. TITLE SHOULD BE IKEA

This looks like the best solution for me. I like that you can see thru them.
What did you use to attach it on the sides?
