Hopefully the finish is okay on this hardwood. I have used gaffers tape on hardwood a fair bit over the years with no issue, making dust barriers and the such. Unlike duct tape, it has always peeled off easy, leaving little or no residue. Kinda strange what happened in your case, definitely not the norm.

I am going to try a different brand on this floor next time. The stuff I have now will be perfect to keep in the Escape.

Note to wife. I told you so. Take those tumblers back to Crate and Barrel, these folks will think we're hillbillies. We'll just drink it from the bottle like we used to.

I haven't seen anyone list this lately: Sterlite 67 Quart Wheeled Latch Box (The Home Depot for $22). You can fit 2 under the bed in the 19' Escape. We took the front wheels off and also place something between the door and the "slightly raised floor" under the bed to keep them from moving out when traveling. We use the "most accessible" box for our cookware and the one that is stored "to the left" for items that we don't need every day such as "off season clothes," shoes & boots, extra hose or extension cord, etc.

The odd bottle of spirits definitely gets passed around our campfire. And we ain't no hillbillies, we's sufistimucated.

I am still planning to do a pullout tray/drawer there, like others have done, have the materials, just need to find the time. What we use now is wire laundry baskets, and seems to work okay for storing stuff, and accessing it. Nothing heavy stored there, and they slide out fine.

All of our dishes are in the upper galley cabinet, other than our cookware and big bowls, which are in the lower cabinet there, along with other stuff.

I imagine there is a different solution for everyone, with certain similarities.

Definition: Trailer wine glass = large and unbreakable.

we've got the "largish" resin type wine glasses too for the trailer--started out with small glass ones---too small and even though they were wrapped I was worried about them breaking.
We do have large glass beer mugs though (but I don't like the wine out of them!)
