Another option would be adjustable tension rods. I use these in some of the cabinets to prevent food etc. from falling forward when you open the door

I bent the last one inch up. Will use tension rods in open cabinets.

We have a lot of hangables, as we take our tartan gear to Highland Games - but underneath we have a couple of drawers. We put them in parallel to the back, so they open to the middle, and they fit snugly between the outside wall and the vent pipe. (Our closet is in the bathroom.) We tried the drawers stacked in the middle, but over bumpy roads, they'd fling themselves out and dump our clothes on the floor, so we rearranged.

How did you attach the metal wire shelf to the wall?? Are there studs in the right locations or did you use wall anchors. Thanks!

Lowes also has a bunch of the shelves kits... Called closetmaids I think it is... These are really nice looking and easy to mod for making it fit just about anywhere...

I have used these for various thing in both the trailer and at home

These are perfect to attach to the tops of tables/cabinets to add places to stuff things...

I have several of these that i stow in the hall of my OFF-RoAD POPUP trailer. easy to place up on the cabinets after we get setup...

Welcome to the JOF.

Some folks have used 'Command' hooks to hold the shelves. I plan to use this method when the DW gives up her hanging space. The nice thing about this method is that it is easily 'undone' or shelves rearranged whenever needed.

Some have wondered if the covering material on the wall will hold adequately or will peel off. As far as I know, no one has reported a problem with the covering material peeling.

There are other methods, but I stopped thinking about them when a JOF member suggested the Command hooks.

On my last RV I used cheap laminate flooring to make the shelf with 1x2 as the supports. It was light and looked pretty good.

I used 1" drywall screws to hold the vertical brackets to the wall. I made no attempt to find a stud, not putting all that much weight on the shelves with just clothing.

Admittedly, I also crossed my fingers that I didn't put a screw through any electrical wires.

I used the same setup as Force but I installed the shelves facing the other way. I screwed the supports into the inside of the wardrobe face frame (i.e. support arms face toward exterior wall of trailer. I felt this allowed me to secure it to something and also hides the supports (ie. don't see them on the back wall).

Closet

We have the same large closet in our bathroom. I added a hanging shelf to ours and fill the shelves with towels, extra sheets shoes etc etc. I can still put boxes of things on one side, hang coats n brooms on the other. And it's lightweight cause it's fabric
