I do believe you are totally correct. After our last outing, with 2 sets of visiting friends, we could have had a larger bar - but where do you put it in a 22' Safari.

Hey, all, thanks for all the contributions to my thread. Combining all your suggestions I hope to design and build a wine rack, holder that will serve as a transporter also. My wife doesn't drink wine so I don't need to carry but 3 or 4 bottles (more to rallies...of course) of different kinds. A 24 footer doesn't allow many places for a 'wine cellar'. Good point from someone about not storing in an overhead locker. Our twin beds do slide out revealing some opportunities near the wheel wells. It's always 'cooler' in those spaces.
Neil.

I have made a dish rack and wine goblet rack that hands down just above the sink and counter top. How many bottles of wine do you want to carry? I might be able to come up with a drawing of a rack that would attach similar to what I have done with the plate and goblet racks. The plates travel with easy since I have a system that keeps the plates in place while traveling and they stand up like a drying rack for plates. I have added an attachment photo below, let me know if you are unable to open the attached photo.

We're in the boxed wine category, too. It lays & travels nicely on its side in the pantry where the shelves are lined with that neat anti-slip mat that is sold for putting under rugs. Works like a charm. Buy the red wine and you don't need to refrigerate, either!

Made the mistake of putting the wine in one of the clothes drawers when we first got our trailer...well it was too heavy and the drawer fell out in travel and cracked. Now we leave the wine in the truck until we get to camp

Well, my tastes are not that sophisticated - I bring my home made (Costco!) Chardonnay in one of those big rubbermaid boxes in the back of the truck, and I move it into the AS fridge as and when required - which is frequent!

Heck, it works for me, and costs me all of about a buck a bottle! Can't be bad!

I'm sipping a glass now actually, although at home, unfortunately!

Brian.

I was born and raised to believe in multifunctionality.... Anyway last night I was searching through the trailer trying to find something and next thing I know, I have everything pulled out from the under bins beneath my front gaucho. Then I notice there are still old mouse turds on the floor back there from my time on the ranch, out comes the vacuum cleaner for them and 409 for the bins. While I am resting on my special gel foamed seat that I sit on when I am working at the table, trying to recover from all the cleaning activity, and looking at all the junk on the floor to reorganize, my mind switches over to another track. Though this seat is the ultimate little bit of heaven to sit on, my feet now hang about two inches off the floor which tugs a bit on my multi-surgeried back. What I need is a little footstool to be really comfortable.

Staring at the things on the floor and then something comes to mind from reading this particular thread. I keep some of my special liquor in those under bins. I reach down and grab the bottle of aged Tequila, then get out a pair of my thick hiking socks. Push the bottle into the sock, make a little twist on the top, and fold the excess back down over the bottle again. I think the bottle of Stoli will make a nice companion piece for the other foot, so I pop a sock on that too. Place the two bottles on the floor and set my feet on them. Perfect. Now my feet and back are happy with the new foot stools and if ever the need arises for a little special spirits, the solution is within grasp. The best part? When I am listening to music, my feet can do this little jig to the beat by rolling the bottles a bit which makes a great little massage on the arches. The socks are so thick that it retards any rolling away across the floor effect. Figuring out something as silly as this makes me want to turn up the music....

Carol

Brian, Isn't it hard to 'pour' some wine from one of those large Rubbermaid boxes...or do you just dip a glassful when needed?....

Sounds good to me...

We like the neoprene totes, too, must also confess that there is really only one wine-drinker here (Maggie) who keeps a supply of the little 4-pack bottles which can be stashed in nook & crannies anywhere. For those of you who turn up your noses at the litl-bitties (we like litl-bitty), there is a really good German Riesling that comes in individual bottles, the Barefoot wines are also good---a glass at a time most of the time, a couple of stored bottles to share when the opportunity arises. Life is good.

Good morning all... Marvin made custom wooden wine crates for Costalotta and they fit in on the floor of the closet.. each holds 10 bottles of wine and a smaller one for our Chocolate Raspberry Port... works great for us... and also we have some new storage under the new front sofas.. more wine for our winter trip to Texas... we make our own ...

Do you have any photos of the crates and how they fit in the trailer? I would love to see them......

Hey, now there's a thought, I could just leave the bottles at home instead of dragging the empties back home to refill!

Cheers ! ....................... Brian.
