We wear our shoes in the camper.. vinyl flooring throughout. Our trailer has a master bedroom with a queen size bed. The bed overhangs the base by 12 inches, so I bought 3 really nice baskets that fit right under the ledge and we each get one for extra shoes. For shoes left outside we have a colored bin a bit smaller than a laundry bin that sits just under the edge of the trailer near the step. Its always full of shoes, flip flops and dog leashes.

This is what we do as well.

I only have one pair of boots and I guess I wear them them all the time - no storage problem here...

They are starting to turn green now some - maybe I better start looking for replacements I guess... They have certainly outlived my batteries...

It looks like the 26RKS has the same steps as my 322FKS and I made and painted a piece of plywood that sits behind the top step and on the support bar at the back. This is removed when traveling and installed during setup.

Shoes are placed there during camping and are under the trailer so they don't get wet and we've not had critters get into them.

We have a clear rubber made bin, that we call the "shoe box" that stays right by the door as soon as you come in the shoes go in there. if the weather is going to be good we leave it out side by the steps. We got the idea from this site and it works for us. Although we have a little more room in our trailer it still a P.I.T.A. and never seems to be a good place to put it.

My shoes are generally stored adjacent to the last piece of furniture I was occupying! The beauty of retirement and camping: I seem to get by on 1 pair of sneakers and 2 pairs of flip flops.

Thanks, dalenoel. My husband is going to try to fashion something similar to what you have. Biggest problem is folks just coming and going for quick trips in and out so this may be the answer.
