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!
(Check out our trailer timeline here)
With our newest trailer we are very fortunate to have lots of cupboards and storage areas.
The combination of storage areas and my experiences with our previous trailers has made organizing this trailer simple.
My favourite storage solution is, hands-down, clear plastic shoe boxes. My heart skips a beat when I think of them used in combination with a labeller!
So, how do I use shoe boxes in my organization obsession?
Well, here is a prime example.
The cupboards, in the above picture, are above our kitchen dinette.
The area is awkward to access, as you have to climb on the benches to reach the cupboards. So, it required some sort of tote storage system. The shoe box solution helps keep like items grouped together.
The labels eliminates the “I don’t know where it goes” argument for not putting things away where they are supposed to go.
The shoe boxes are sturdy – we have had these ones for about 3 years now and I think one lid cracked (from misuse).
Not only do I store gear and knickknacks in them, but I also use them for storing food, kids toys, clothes, etc.
They have been the best storage solution purchase that we have ever made.
Go out and buy some! You’ll thank me later!
