Great idea. My only suggestion would be to drill some holes in the outer walls/dividers so there is ventilation/drying if the shoes are damp.

Ron should chime in about his shoes holder on his door.

I copied the idea at the rally in June albeit a bit smaller-(smaller door and not the exact unit)--and have had a lot of "ooohs" and "great ideas" with other folks that have seen it...Boots stay in the back of the vehicle.

We were just throwing all our shoes in the bottom of the wardrobe--but were a jumbled mess---a wine case fits much better in there now!!

I saw that at the rally too, a good idea as well. We followed the lead of baglo, and hang our garbage can on the door, which actually works really great, as most of the time the door is open, and we are prepping food outdoors, and the garbage can is right handy then.

What I like about it, is when the door is closed, the trash can is in an area nobody uses.

Yup, you open the door and it's no longer in the way.

Glenn,
In your picture it appears to be a battery vent under your lower refer vent? I thought your batteries were on your rear bumper?

Battery is on rear bumper. I don't know what that vent is for. Maybe for the grey-water tank?

Awesome idea! I have used a gray plastic box for a number of years along the same lines, storing it outside, under the trailer by the door when camping. It also holds chock and blocks during transit.

Yours is a much better implementation....
