Re: Removable shelves in wardrobe closet

And there's always the drawer option, if you're still at a point where you're discussing the options with Reace and Tammy. We just got our 17B, which has 4 beautiful drawers in that wardrobe space (thanks to others on this forum for the inspiration), and I know it'll probably be one of the best decisions we made. We'll be able to fit so much more in there, and have easier access to it all.

Re: Removable shelves in wardrobe closet

I helped a customer at HD with this issue - it worked well so I am doing it in our wardrobe. Rubbermaid makes a wire shelf support pole that comes in 2 pieces. The shelf clips screw onto the pole so you can get flip one half around, figure out the height you need to fit inside the cabinet and cut the poles if necessary. Remember the clips have to be at the same height or the shelves will be wonky! I put 3 poles across the back, evenly spaced with the clips facing the door and 2 in the front, to the sides of the opening with the clips facing the back. With the wire shelving cut to size, you can attach the back into the clips then the front edge onto the clips. The wire shelving itself keeps the poles stable and no holes to drill. Just remember to check the depth of the cabinet first as the back wall is slightly curved. The shelving comes in 12", 16" or 20" depth and a linen shelf works best.

Re: Removable shelves in wardrobe closet

We've found the "overhang" on our 5.0 very useful for hanging wet clothes, dog leashes, etc. I attach a couple of suction cup hooks and a small shower basket under there to keep the wet stuff out of the trailer. Its also a good place to keep muddy shoes, etc.

There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary, and those who don't.

Re: Removable shelves in wardrobe closet

You guys just saved me a lot of work ! The link above to the organizer at amazon showed out of stock....however, I found this suggestion:

.....and so I just went and bought one and put it in the ward closet of my not-a-Escape trailer. Looks like it will work great....and it was only twenty bucks and it's pretty lightweight....which is always a good thing. Thanks !
