Default Storage under upper bunk

I'm new here and I searched for this idea for storage. I didn't find one like this that came with this 1709 T Hi-Lo I just bought. Under the upper bunk, the previous owners attached a cargo net and it is very useful for clothes, pillows, books even. I wish I could claim this idea, but I can't.

Also in the bathroom the POs had hung two collapsible shoe bags from the shower track on each side of the toilet. It is good for all sorts of items. When the trailer is lowered the two bags slide around to the front of the bathroom and dangle over the sink. When the trailer is down a foot or so, the bag bottoms are moved off the sink/counter so as to drape into the open area in front of the toilet...pretty clever and you do not have to unload them.

Default Nice storage ideas

I think we all have come up with some mods for storage. In a trailer the small size of yours organization is key.

yes Sam, I'd agree organization is key. There are some great ideas in this forum - Jack's drawers in the wardrobe, hooks on the walls. We don't have a microwave in ours, but we will probably add one. I think they went in the cabinet in the kitchen? My last trailer I built a drop-down shelf for a micro and that worked quite well.

Default Microwave

I don't have a microwave that is built in on my 1990 25ft. Classic. I have one that we transport in a plastic box. Then it is placed on top of the refrigerator. My unit has a stove /oven. If I ever got another RV I would get one with an oven. So many kitchen gadgets to consider. Air Fryer,convection microwave,instapot and pressure cooker just to name a few.

I like the idea of a micro in a box and then putting it on the refrigerator.

I wonder if anyone has added drop-down shelves to their Hi-Lo. Sort of like a drop leaf table.

Default Traveling with microwave.

The big plastic box sits on the dinette/bed and doesn't move around when we are traveling. The dinette is a perminent bed for DD/Adult. The micro glass turntable is packed in the original styrofoam. Probably bought it at Walmart some years ago. Not a fancy one as we just use it for heating/reheating food. I tend to cook at home and just reheat. Probably much cheaper than a factory installed one.

I have found this to be my favorite storage/packing item to date. I put the clothes in my house and then just carry this and hang in the closet. Saves me from packing a bag and unpacking https://youtu.be/1aNdAngINn0 plus instant dirty laundry hamper

Bailey, that is a great idea and lead me to search for other hanging/collapsible shelves. Then it occurred to me that if I got two hanging shelves (they are very light-weight, about 3#) and two telescoping closet rods and mounted the closet rods parallel to one another and hang the two shelves - one on each rod. Then when you opened the door, you would see the side of two folding shelves. One for me and one for DW. Grab a shelf and pull it out to access your stuff. This whole affair would weigh maybe 12 lbs empty and fill the wardrobe almost completely with stuff. And it would cost about $120 or so. Here's a link to a shelf: https://www.amazon.com/Stow-N-Go-Por...1GK0XZY3W36V3M
