Drawers in closet - 19

So, when I ordered my 19 I got 3 shelves installed in the closet as I had no plans to be bringing any clothing that required hanging. But, then I realized that organizing those deep narrow shelves and keeping stuff from getting all jumbled up while towing was going to be tough. So, had these sliding drawers build by Shelves that slide and they arrived today. Pretty simple installation and they are already being made use of. Will be full-timing in a month or so and still have a long way to go to make this a home!

Nice set up....but since I'm planning my closet, I'm going lighter weight. Those shelves @ $50 each from factory and then sliders added, more $$ means a small investment. I have taken a piece of smooth plywood and installed shelves in my last 3 Escapes and then use these collapsible clothes bins which slide easily on the smooth wood. Not as classy as yours...but the same result.

Good job with that setup! I like the collapsible baskets... Might check those out for possible use elsewhere.

Looks great Carl. Will those shelf boxes stay put when loaded and on the road? If not a sturdy closet door latch might be needed.

I installed the slides such that there is some friction but will likely devise something to serve as a stop while on the road. Thanks!

I’ve been planning to install some of these magnetic cabinet locks. They’re made for child proofing, but should also work great on our cabinets to “rolling earthquake proof” them. You unlock them with a magnet held on the outside of the door, or you can push a button on the lock to turn them off and put them in “access mode”. No hardware shows from the outside, and you can “store” the magnet key on your range hood.

unless you have the stainless hood, nonmagnetic.

Unless you put a second magnet on the inside ;-)

Shelves that slide

We have used ShelvesThatSlide in our kitchen cabinets at home and were extremely pleased with the product quality and customer service! We would recommend them to anyone wanting custom shelves that slide!

Shelves that slide is about a mile from us and I have visited their show room and had discussions with them. My issue is that their drawers are not dove tail construction, but a glued and stapled box construction.
I am worrking with a company in NC now that uses birch with dove tail construction and good prices. I will post up info after the first drawers come in.
