You realize how important organization is when you are spending several months of the year in a living space of 300 square feet.
But wait, it’s not only one person in the confined quarters – it’s 2 adults, 2 kids, 1 dog and 1 cat.
So, how do we
survive do it?
Well, I am a little OCD when in comes to organization and finding optimal storage solutions.
A perfect example is how I organize our drawers in the trailer.
When we first started talking about the possibility of becoming extended stay campers, we decided that the only way we would commit would be if we had friends doing it with us.
You see, camping means camaraderie. Camping is sitting around a campfire with friends singing songs. Camping means letting your kids bike and visit with their friends. Camping means having the occasional supper together. Camping is all about reconnecting with my own family and connecting with our great group of friends.
Camping, friends and Popsicles!

Thanks guys – you’re the best!
Trailer storage solutions and organization is a hot topic for a lot of recreational vehicle enthusiasts.
We have owned 3 trailers in the past 10 years and with each trailer I have made it my goal to get the best use of space out of each nook and cranny. So much so that my camping friends have – let’s say – noticed!

You know someone who has gone through this:
Enthusiastically, they opened up the door to their trailer, which had been in storage for the winter. They slowly entered the trailer and saw the horror – tiny little black “pebbles” scattered throughout the trailer.
A mouse or, most likely, mice called their trailer home throughout the winter.
So after a few hiccups, we finally were able to take our trailer out of storage yesterday.
It looks so nice in our driveway, but it will look even better at the campsite. It will look even better when it is clean and sparkling!
