Smile Organization for the Windhound Wag'n

So I finally bit the bullet and decided to make the trailer perfect for us, nearly two years after buying it. Added things include: hooks in the right places, a home for keys, a drawer for misc crap to get it off the counter below, a towel rack (over the furnace, and yes we'll move the towel before running the furnace), storage for 3 pairs of shoes on the inside of the wardrobe drawer, a new paper towel holder right by the sink and a new sponge/soap/etc holder by the sink. I'm pretty happy with it and think keeping the clutter organized will make camping even better!
To start: some before pictures of the previous owner's choices.

Love the hooks...first class! I can't figure out what the thing is above the DeWalt screwdriver though?

Looks like a sliding plastic drawer.

It is a sliding plastic drawer! It can only hold 8 lbs the way it's attached, but that's plenty for gloves, wallets and dog poop bags

Every single ETI built trailer kinda starts out the same, even if the Formica, upholstery, flooring, etc. have changed from stock. It's the "mods" that owners make to personalize their trailer that makes me go NEATO!

Great ideas!
Is that drawer attached to a cabinet to the left of the door (looking from inside to out) and over the wardrobe? If so how is that area behind accessed? My 2009 looks a bit different, as there are cupboards with doors from front to back (to the door) on the passenger side.

I think I was just afraid to put anything permanent up until I was really sure what I wanted! But we've camped enough now that I know what we always need spots for (aka what my husband always leaves on the counter that drives me nuts and gets in my way), and I finally gave up on worrying about being able to remove everything later. Our needs aren't going to change that much and I think we're going to have this trailer for a few more years at least!

The drawer is up to the back of the wall, and mounted to the bottom of the wood cabinet (which goes from next to the door to the front of the trailer) so there isn't any space behind it.
