Closet storage solution 2018 27 FB Tommy Bahama

Hey all,

Wife and I are a few weeks into a 3 month trip and things couldn't be better.

Preparing for the trip, we decided that the closet situation was a little lacking. Who needs that many hanging clothes? Not us. We are more jeans, shorts, and t-shirt people, which put me to work to figure out a solution for more storage in the closet.

I found some really great ideas on here, from container store drawer solutions to wire shelves and a few more. I would like to share what I came up with to fill this space.

Included are a few pictures of the starting situation, and a few of the finished product. i think it came out pretty well. wife is super happy, and that makes me a happy camper.

Here is where I started, and how it finished..

For a more detailed explanation of how I did this, please go here;

Good luck on all your projects to make your trailer yours..

Kyle

That is SO cool! I agree shelves are way more useful.

Iím not that good a woodworker so on our 25FB we converted the hall closet to hold both a slide out microwave and the Container Store Elfa wire drawers. The drawers are an exact fit.

Very nice! We did the same thing in our 30í international. Agreed - who needs all that hanging space!

I didnít have the tools or cabinetry skills to do this job myself - so I had to outsource it. You should be proud - itís a lot of work to do it properly like you have!

If you havenít already done so - highly recommend you reinforce the floor as it bares the weight of the center wall and shelves. Ours collapsed (prior to conversion) - itís only held in place by a couple nails we had the floor replaced and braced / added need supports below.

We were jealous of the Tommy Bahama ice maker - so we added one too with power and ventilation so it can run and make ice in the pantry for our next stop while we roll down the road!

Daleyocum, I have a a couple of questions. How did you secure the frame work? Do you have problems with the shelves pushing the door open while traveling?

The drawer frame is shimmed out with wood on the right and screwed into the trailer’s cabinet and also screwed into the floor. It has no interest in going anywhere.

We did indeed have problems with the closet door getting pushed open, by the microwave primarily. We put two of these latches on the outside of the door that we lock before we travel.
