Lovely.

I yearn for a more functional closet.

Update. I added a second latch to the door. If I make sure all the baskets are fully closed and push hard on the door before travelling the door USUALLY stays closed.

Hi, my Safari was built with a slide out pantry; It has a catch mechanism to hold it in place. One time, the catch wasn't fully engaged and it opened the pantry door and broke the slide out rear stop. I modified it to have a front stop. I think you need something to hold your shelves in place or they will open your door and possibly damage your new sliding baskets.

For those still on the forums, and for who are running with 28s, would you do me a favor and take a few pics and/or describe how you prepped the space of the wardrobe for conversion to the pull-out shelving? The space in my 2011 serenity int even all the way through on the fridge side, so yes, I expect to have to install spacer block to which to mount the shelve, but just want to see what others have done...

Amazon has the shelf units of the same model number at a fairly nice discount.

This is a good idea - well done! I will be interested in reading more about how people have made this conversion.
Thanks
Doug

We also have a 28' and that closet door opened about 50% of the time. We solved the problem with velcro on the top and bottom. Only opened once since then (we forgot to engage the velcro ).

Do you find the two adjacent bedside closets enough space for clothes? The 28 seems like a versatile floor plan with a great living/dining area but there is no pantry. Your solution solves that problem but does it at the expense of reduce clothing storage. I wonder if there is a way to split it with the upper half to hang shirts yet still some space left to have slide out shelves for a half pantry?

We have found that the bedside closets and the underbed storage is more than enough room for clothes. We use the shelves we installed ala BAB for food and other stuff like our coffee maker.

This being our first long trip had made us desire more kitchen storage, the coat closet is nice but not essential. This will be my new project, great idea thank you all.
To stop door from opening would one of those spring loaded robs be useful while in transit?

If the doors stand out away from the walls, you can put a slide bolt on either the very top or very bottom, and slide the bolt across between the doors to keep them from opening. That way, when you finally sell it or trade it, you simply remove the bolt lock and don't have to worry about unsightly holes where everybody can see them.
