I wanted to use wire shelving in the narrow closets on either side of the front bed, but didn't want to use the Command hooks after hearing about the adhesive not holding up to the extremes of RV interiors. The DW didn't want me drilling holes in her new trailer so we compromised and bought 2 plastic 4-shelf units at Wally World. The inside of the closet is 14.5 inches wide, but the narrow door opening meant I had to assemble them inside the closet. I cut down the plastic pipe uprights to 9.25 inches each and was able to stack three shelves before the angle of the front wall prevented me from going any higher. These shelves are 14 inches wide and 22 inches deep. They cost $14.95 per package. They are just wide enough to rest on the interior closet bracing and not on the thin finish panel at the bottom of the closet. It took less than 30 minutes to do my first mod.
Hockeydad, I did the same thing in the closets on either side of the bed. It works great and no holes to drill or command hooks to fall down 😊

Lots of good suggestions. I am surprised anyone has had any success with the Command Hooks. I bought 2 packs for this trailer and have used almost all the strips, but they kept falling off, even with no weight on them.

DW first used rubbing alcohol to clean the area where the strip was going to go, then followed the instructions for holding pressure on the strips.

She put up several for holding clothes etc. in the bedroom and they are holding just fine.

So far all of ours are holding save for one (installed in the pass-through storage on a piece of unfinished framing, no hope for that one from the beginning). DW uses them all over the trailer, primarily for holding towels.

We have the same RV and we went to ikea and bought a closet organizer that hangs from the rod. It's exactly the same size as the closet space, organizes all the kids clothes and other items. Cost about $10 and no drilling, or mangling required!
