Lightbulb 17Z Clothes Storage Solution

I just found a way to store our kids clothes and mine without bringing suitcases and moving them all the time around from couch to bed.

At Walmart they sell 15 x 15 square ottomans, top lifts for clothes storage inside or anything else, and they are a nice cushioned top for sitting on also. They come in light brown, dark brown or black. I bought 2 in dark brown, one for in front of front bed and one for the back bed. They fit nicely, out of the way and then the kids have a way of stepping up onto bed and ours. They sell for $17 each.

Bought a 3m Command hook for broom to be hung left of toilet. It was always falling down and now it will be out of the way and not touching the floor.

Also bought Rubbermaid desk organizer containers, they are 3 inches wide by 9, 12 or 15 in length. They fit perfectly on back wall behind stove or the side of stove, and in bathroom just right of sink.

I think I have solved my issues with the size of this camper and won't be looking for a 19h. Plus, the new ones have a very shallow shower area, not good.

Hope you find this helpful for your own 17Z. Going camping next week and hope it's clutter free, more convenient, and packing light.

Finding convenient and useful storage is almost like a game. I have some of the modes I have done to my 17Z posted at my webshots website.
No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D

Another Clothes Storage Solution - X17Z

For those of you who are not television watchers, here's how we handle clothing storage. We'd used a more extensive setup in our old PUP. For hanging items, I installed a simple tension (shower curtain) rod over the toilet and shower (however, while traveling, we use over-the-door hooks on the bathroom door).
