Question Basement Storage

I was just wondering how you all have organized your basement/underneath storage areas. I have been thinking all winter of how to effectively organize my underneath storage and would love to see what you all have done to utilize your spaces! Totes? Shelving? Pull-out drawers?

Basically, we have no dividers, shelves, or pull outs in my 5er basement. To me, that would only limit my choices as to stowing different things for different camping trips. I store a ladder, a series of wooden 2X8 ramps for leveling, a small collection of common tools, jack speed wrench, and an extra wooden step for uneven ground. Also the optional exterior grille in its tote bag. Sometimes we also include a set of cornhole boards for those longer trips. Each trip has different storage requirements for different items, so the space is left wide open. Also, I never leave anything in there that can't be easily and cheaply replaced, and leave the doors unlocked while in the CG. If someone really wants to take any of my items, I would rather they just take them, rather than damaging the trailer trying to break in. So far, in many years of camping, nothing has ever sprouted legs. Hope this helps.

Basement Storage

basement? what's that?
hahahahah! The ONE thing lacking in the Eagle HT 23.5 is a basement.
It's got storage up front and a tiny storage on the side, under the stove.

We use the basic plastic storage containers (Walmart has good selections) in various sizes.

One for water hoses, one for different coax cables, one for sewer stuff, one for our 50 amp power chord, one for....you get the drift.

There is still a lot of 'stuff' that we don't store in containers but use more often once we are setup.

x2 on totes. I have mine labeled and stacked in the order I need them and pack them back that way. One for setup supplies when I first arrive which is the last to go in upon breakdown. Kids toys, balls, etc. are in another then screen rooms, tents, tarps and other odds and ends in another. You should look at what size items you need to store, measure then go out and buy what you need. I checked my home first and tried variuos ones then just replaced them after I had what I needed.

We have no dividers in ours either and use one end of the basement for chair, table, canopy, grill. The other end is all totes labled sewer, water, electric, tools. I leave all the storage outside to the hubby..I get control of all the inside stuff. He slides the tote out that he needs and it works just fine. Without those totes everything would slide all over.
