Has anyone added shelves inside there closet area?

One change we have decided to make after our first weekend out with our new tailer is to add shelves to one of the closets in the master bedroom.
I am looking for photos of this mod, and wondering what type of material would work best..
Thanks
Lady W

How wide and how deep are the shelves to be? Why do I ask? Need to know what material is necessary to support the load on the shelf- Just wondering? DD

The closet looks to be about 16 wide and maybe 30-36 inches deep..
the shelves will just be holding my clothes.. maybe 5-10 pounds total..

We purchased white grid stacking shelves from the Container Store for added shelves in the closets and cabinets in our trailer.

Just look for stackable shelves. I've seen them at other stores in the US.

To add a picture:
1) Copy the URL of the inyternet picture you want,
2) Select the 5th icon from the right, "Insert Reply", on your "Reply to Thread" message (see image below).
3) Paste the URL and click OK.
4) That's it!

Shelving

I did the same thing, expect I bought 4 foot lengths of the shelving and cut it to fit the width. Where you buy the shelving they will also sell the hardware kit for hanging the shelves. I put 2 shelves in each cabinet. I left the hanger rod in, incase I ever wanted to take the shelves out and hang clothes on hangers. We have another big closet that we hang clothes in and didn't need the two narrow ones on either side of the bed.

I purchased the same type of wire shelves the drifie did. I bought them at Wal-Mart or Target.
