Re: More storage

Nuthatch, those shelves on top are a nice looking and useful addition to your wardrobe. Looks like your Doug is a handy fella.

Re: More storage

Nuthatch, where did you find those drawers? I have found many similar products, but that one is as close to my ideal as I have seen.

Re: More storage

I had a set of shelves like that I put in my Boler. I found them at Walmart.
No need for them in Greyt Escape as the prev owner had shelves installed.
A handy storage mod he did was have a local fellow design and install a hollow frame over the tongue,with a hard plastic stanley box bolted on. It's handy for lightwt, bulky ,messy items. ie hoses,chocks and leveling blocks. When open it doesn't interfere with the window view, or opening of the rock guard.
In the pic, ignore the gal with the mile wide grin of delirium often seen on new Escapees. I can't get a closeup pic today it's in the shop getting longer chains.

Re: More storage

I found NuthatchBC's drawer units at Canadian Tire today for $38. They are made by Gracious Living. A better deal is the SOS 4S2D Drawer Unit which is on sale this week for $20. It has two full-height drawers and four half-height. The frames are white instead of the nice dark grey of Nuthatch's. I bought two, and swapped some drawers around. I snapped an empty half-height frame at the bottom of the assembly to raise the bottom drawer high enough to clear the cupboard lip. Had to remove the hanging rod for that.

Staples also carries some of this line, with cool black frames.

Camera battery is dead. Pictures later.

Re: More storage and hooks and lights and


I bought Sterlite drawer / boxes for the cupboard and then I assigned them to the side shed for odds and ends. I like the wardrobe as a wardrobe. My shirts and jackets hang in there and at the bottom I've got a "wine rack" and a place for shoes. Originally I figured I'd pack the drawers with clothes, but, I found I had plenty of storage for my clothes in the cupboard above the bed. In fact, last trip, I brought too many clothes and I'm going to pare it down ( but bring more cold weather options ). I've also installed and removed at least a dozen hooks and dot.it lights. I'm glad I didn't install anything with screws.
Today, the Old Bag and I surveyed placement of the plexiglass mirror I bought. I was going to put it on the wall next to the bathroom door, but realized there is no light on the face if a person is applying make-up or plucking chin hairs. It's been installed inside the bathroom door so you can turn on the light inside and next to the trailer entrance for illumination. That required taking down a towel hook and a dot.it light. I'm assembling quite a collection of hooks and such that I don't want or need anymore.

BTW, the plexi mirror came from a local glass shop. It measures 12" x 18" and has ground edges. It weighs nothing, won't break and cost $21. I put it up with double-sided tape.

And, the sales guy cringed when I mentioned attaching it with No More Nails. He said it would remove the reflective material from the plexi almost instantly.

Re: More storage

Thanks for the information!!! I've been trying to figure out a mirror solution that will not cause any damage. This appears to be it. Also it would be treated like the shower wall and just squeegeed and/or wiped down.
I was thinking of calling TAP plastics, I was not aware that a glass shop would deal in other than glass.

Re: More storage


If you choose, you can mount the mirror with clips or simply drill right through it and attach with screws.
