Leon, It is interesting how we all have different needs. We have always wanted a bigger fridge than our 4.3 but have no need at all for a coat closet. Our coats lay out on the bed or over the TV items. Out coat closet is now a pantry with pull out drawers. It is great that we are able to customize our spaces for our individual needs!

So I have both in my 5.0TA. But all those years of Scamp ownership and having a hanging closet... what? I need place to hang a "prom dress.? Of all the storage I've had over the years, "hanging" space is not one of them I've been concerned/worried about.

BUT, I have camped with good people that attended church on Sundays of an egg gathering. And those people wanted to dress for that occasion. They wanted hanging space for those clothes... I respect that.

I don't go to church and have never been invited to a prom - and I don't fold clothes. So, grabbing a few wrinkled shirts on hangers and stuffing them in the wardrobe works for me.

One way to increase hanging length in a 21 is to move the rod up; ours was about 2 inches lower than it needed to be; jeans and jackets fit fine (and I'm tall.) I moved ours when I shelved the side of the closet. The top of the vertical white rails the drawer shelves are mounted to is 36 inch off the cabinet floor in this pic.

Agree with Leon, we have plenty of room to hang our coats and shirts, plus I have a hanging shoe rack and a basket in the bottom for maps, magazines, etc. Might put in shelves like Tom and Charlie, wanted to camp in it for awhile and see how we use the space. I like the little shelf above the microwave - I use it for cookware. We also love the big frig.

Thanks that a good suggestion I am going to have to a look on my 19 to see if I can do the same.

Yes, that refrigerator looks so big. Some people have opted for the smaller with microwave above. I wonder how you can get jackets and shirts in that closet since it is so much shorter but since you can, that's good. And even a big TV. Might wrap the TV in a small rug.

Good idea to move the rod up.

Maybe our rod is low. Will have to look next time as our jacket and shirt lengths barely fit, I thought. There could be more room than I think.

We use a skinny hanging shoe organizer in our closet which leaves room for shirts and such. (Tend to hang our jackets on our Umbra hook which is on the wall by the bathroom.) I also found a rectangular ice cube bucket which fits perfectly on the little shelf at the back of the closet to hold misc items. One option I wish we would have gotten is a drawer under our closet.
