Postby Forrest747 » Fri Jun 11, 2010 1:53 am

What do you keep inside. May have to adjust some of my cabinets and thinking of what am i really going to store inside, the sleeping area. Your thoughts?

Didnt think it through I guess when I asked it. I guess all of the above. I guess i just envisioned all the camping gear going into the galley, to keep the sleeping area ready for sleep. THought maybe a change of clothes or such in the sleeping area. Extra blankets and such inside.

I had planned on some clear plastic bins that i could pack in the house and load into the sleeping area cabinets. One area is going to be for the fuse and electrical cubby, the radio/ dvd player will go there.

When I travel, I have a storage box with extension cords, wooden leveling blocks, etc. inside. As well as folding chairs and things like that.

Food box, folding table, storage box with extra clothes, bathroom items, etc. are in the van.

When I get to c/g, the t/d gets cleaned out, which only takes a couple of minutes.. the storage box goes under the t/d to keep it out of the rain.

We have quite a few cabinets, so plenty of room for storage. We keep clothing, of course, at the foot of the bed cabinets. Shelf holds TV, movies, books, misc. The head of the bed cabinets have "tolietries", underwear, a box of junk (little stuff, like extra fuses, candle lamp, headlamp, instructions for setting the clock that I can never remember, bungee cords), camping journal and scrapbook, reading books. On the shelves are kleenex, keys, glasses, water bottle, change, cell phone and charger. Then there are the drop down cabinets for dirty clothes and shoes.

When camping: I keep a small fire extinguisher inside, a small plastic bin of misc items (fuses, batteries, small flashlight, sunscreen, bug spray) right inside the door. I have 2 cabinets above the bed. All bedding and clean sheets are stored in upper left cabinet and small bag with clothes is in right cabinet.

When not in use, I usually toss the clean sheets and towels in a storage bag and throw inside along with my camp table and 2 camp end tables. All the chucks, tacky lights, door mat, rope, citronella candle, levelers are kept in the front tongue storage box at all times.

I have 12x12" storage that runs the width of the trailer and electrical cords, short water hose and camp chair live in there.

This leaves 4 things I need to grab before hitting the road - fresh clothes bag, dry food box (includes paper pdts), my camp box that has the small stove, fuel, utensils, dishes, pots and lanterns and finally, the cooler of FOOD! If the dogs come with, there's a small doggie box with leashes, bowls, food, and tennis balls.

Hugs,
Ratkity

While driving, my chair and first up are in the trailer, most of the other junk is in the car or tongue box. Once set up I store miscellaneous junk in this..

Image

Shoes, radio, tv, glasses, whatever. It all goes in there so I can roll around all night without rolling onto something.

If I can figure an easy way to hang the dvd player from it, I'll get another for the other side. It's real nice because I can see what's in it without having to dig.

I'm lucky to have extra space with my F150 and the trucks cargo carrier. With that I can tow the td ready to stop and sleep in at any time. :thumbsup:

All our clothing, cameras, electronics and Maha battery charger (for flashlights etc. and cell chargers). Tools, AC unit, cords, hoses, generator go in a very large tongue box as needed, i.e. generator only when boondocking AC only when down south.

Clothes, computer, books, inverter. Everything else is either in the galley or in the truck bed.

I was worried about discussing inner emotions and lost dreams.

Inside the trailer, we keep the side table and clothing--anything that won't ding up the woodwork if it bounces around.

Clothes, extra blankets, first aid kit, books, camera, and (while traveling) side tables all go inside. All cooking/eating utensils go in the galley. Everything else is in the back of the truck.

Pots and pan, food (dry), cooking utensils, sleeping bags, lawn chairs, etc. in the TD. One storage bin with clothes and one cooler in either the Charger or F150. When we pull in to a C/G, we are setup, just that simple. The only variable is how long we are going to be in one spot. If we are to be there for more than a day or two, we will setup our sunshade, which we will haul in the TD if we are towing with the Charger or in the F150 if we are towing with it.

kitchen stuff in the galley, Just some bedding in the living area. We have a tahoe that when seats are put down in the back it can almost hold a sheet of plywood. So, most of the stuff goes there.

Also, I have a little guy sport with a 5x8 platform on the front. AC, tarps, dutch ovens, kindling, spare tire, tongue box, gas cylindar.. all go there.
