I have a basket hanging on the wall inside, I bang off the dirt/sand/whatever, and throw the shoes in the basket. Haven't had a mud problem yet, probably would use a plastic garbage bag, and the basket on the wall.

I have some extra room at the foot of my bed and left to right I keep some extra plastic bags; then my "cold box" that has my camping shoes, rain coat, mittens, socks; then my extra down blanket, and to the right not pictured is my personal items bag.

Sometimes I just take the shoe bag out of the box and hang it up if I'm using them a lot.

You can tell I'm from Minnesota, the down blanket is tucked below the air conditioner :D

We have plastic shoe boxes that sit on the ledge behind our heads.

Great answers folks. I like the rubbermaid contaniers with latching tops. Madjack. just pure common sense Idea. never thought of that one and just slided it under the teardrop. that would also keep the rain out or something like a mouse or the little monks or chimonks in the moutains we have up here, outa your shoes.

interesting. keep the answers coming folks. I have been thinking about fastening a basket to the under side of my frame by the door but want the room for a under the frame storage drawer I seen on a diffrent tread. My thoughts. Slowcowboy.

you can put a couple of tracks under the bottom of the tear, and hang your containers in the tracks so you can slide them in and out as needed.. while traveling, put the containers inside the t/d...

Sterilite Containers - sold at Walmart. Prevents scorpion surprises out here in the desert and as others have said, slides right under the teardrop doors and makes a great foot rest too. (Raises your thighs off the door edge.)

Get his and hers... or his and his if that's your thing.

Reo-Ron did the same thing, as your sitting down with your feet outside reach between your legs and you have a "drawer" hanging from the bottom of the trailer there under the door. No dirty shoes in the cabin.
His drawer was just a cheap Sterlite or Rubbermaid dish pan, and simple hangers . The "track" holds the lip of the dishpan. Could do same thing with your plastic sweater box etc, if there is enough of a lip.

Ready to pack up? slide it out and set it in the cabin. Even if you drive off with the drawer still attached, it likely won't come out anyway.
Sorry , can't find a pic.

You bet bobhenry. I loved that junk drawer underneath when I saw that tread. I am robbing it when I get around to building it to some day. I could dump the shoes in it.

Julie. I think if one just wanted to get on with camping this summer your idea would work great to if one was in a hurry. the drawer bob mentioned would be perment though and hold more junk. Stuff one needs to grab in a hurry and doesn't want to be getting in the cabin part where you sleep all the time like for your flashlight.

Even like madjack said and osiamaker a simple lock tight top rubber made contarner would get the camping on quick and I could like julie said easly get one attached underneath and make it stay like a drawer just for this summer.

but I am addicted to the junk drawer idea when I saw it and Like bob will be building it in the future. It now is conflicting with wanting to put a rack underneath for my table that fastens to the side of the teardrop.

There is alwasy a millon things you want to add and jam on such a little trailer. But its fun way fun figuring it all out. My thoughts. Slowcowboy.

Box for shoes

Postby ssrjim » Sun Jun 20, 2010 7:17 pm

On trailer one I had a compartment under the door. I've been thinking of doing a wire basket similar version for #3.

Thanks all as this was something I was curious about as we're taking ours for the first trial trip next weekend. Went to wally world and got one the sterilite boxes with latches for $4.00. But now that I've seen that drawer and I have like 5 drawer boxes that I've kept from some of the services where I had to change out the drawers, I'll add that after this next weekend.
