If you have things you don't need right away, they can go in the back of the pickup. We have a tonneau cover so that helps too.

Come to think of it, your dirty laundry can go in a tote and in the back of the pickup too!
Yes! Good idea!

We use clear shoe box size totes to stack things in the upper cabinets. They sit 2 high and are easy to get in and out. Also have one of those wire multi space file holders that sits sideways in a cabinet and holds paper plates and napkins, etc standing on edge. But as others have said, less is better. We had our pup for 19 years before trading for a 17z and when I was cleaning out the pups limited storage (even less storage than now) I found stuff in the back of drawers and cabinets that hadn't been used for that whole time. Needless to say it didn't get transferred into the new one. And why were there 22 hot dog forks when there was only 5 of us?

Totes for all the outdoor stuff. Inside I have pretty good cabinet space, but the laundry we just use one of those popup bins for the kids and one for us. We usually do a load or two during a week long stay so we can put it away.

Dishes are always dried and put back because that usually is the worst part of it.

I also got a folding foot rest that is great for storing the games, shoes or loose ends when we are out. It doubles as a table for the kids to play games on in their bunk room and a seat as well. It holds a lot and folds up in 10 seconds for moving. Looks better than a tote and has more uses.

One of the things that could be helpful to know is which model tt you have. For an extreme example if you have a small 17z verse a large 5ver, the storage issues are so different.

Our 23B hybrid has a lot of storage space, but during transit but the stuff bounces around, and makes a mess. The cabinets that hold plates, cups, and similar is always a mess. In one cargo hold I found a computer paper box fits nicely and I put my misc cargo hold stuff in there.

Shoes can be a pain, I found I was able to remove the wood panel under my jsofa to put shoes there. Luckily on my unit there is a skirt that hangs down from the sofa sofa and now with the missing panel you do not see them. I added shelves to one half of the wardrobe, that fit decorative boxes, that hold our clothes. We do not take showers in out htt, it's to small. So our laundry basket, trash can, jug of travel water sits in there.

As others have said, everything has a spot, everything in its spot.

Pretty much on the same page as everyone else.. Totes... For both inside stuff and outside stuff. We use the underside of the dining bench to store dirty clothes in a large industrial plastic bag.

Outdoor, Totes for fresh water supplies, sewer supplies, leveling and such, grilling supplies, etc..

The biggest thing we did, and some may not like the look of it, was remove the fabric covered board under the jack knife sofa and the under the bed "box" which was too heavy to lift anyway with the memory foam mattress and use laundry baskets. Pics are from our old camper.

We use plastic totes for alot stuff. Dirty clothes go in a large laundry bag that we keep in the bathtub. If it gets in the way we move the dirties to a plastic tote that stays in the covered bed of my truck.

Things get stored based on normal use. For example, we bring a crock pot for some meals, but only use it infrequently, so its in a difficult to get to spot on the back of the u shaped dinette. Things that can hang are life savers, for example we have a hanging knife storage, paper towel holder, plastic bag holder (dog cleanup). Lots of hooks in the bathroom from towels.

Laundry goes into a collapsible hamper, which can be in the shower when moving and a hall when camping.

We are limited in cargo carrying capacity. Only have about 300 lbs to play with.
We plan on laundry once a week.We carry some dehydrated food and soups and limited canned goods.

Space is not a problem We carry clothes for eight days.

It helps to come from a tenting background. We have two of each utensil and plate and bowl and small pots and pans aside from one spaghetti pot.

The only significant weighty thing is a portable table ( 5 lbs) and two camp chairs ( about 5 lbs each) and two computers and a TV

Probably we will carry beer though in the fridge. I allowed about 20 lbs for fresh refrigerated food for four days. If we boondock more on future trips, we will dehydrate more food

Well not buy ice. We freeze soda bottles. That way we do not have to run propane and possibly forget its on when fueling.. And the food will stay cold without a mess if the freezer has those soda bottles.

Both well used. Now up to 170 nights camping and 40,000 miles on the TT since purchase.
