Wheel well cabinets for skinny storage

Work great for wine/liquor bottles....just add some dividers; these are loose "U" shaped individuals with a fixed stop mounted with velcro behind the stile; easy to rearrange.

That is one spot we could use better organization. What is the material you use, Charlie?

I used ABS plastic, hot-wire formed for so they're seamless. 1/8 inch thickness.

I figured 1 red, 1 white, and 1 opened bottle. Last one is for wine glasses.

I saws these at the Fall NOG. They are very slick and adjustable too (those bottles of bourbon are always wider than the wine bottles ). Right now I have my liquor under the refrigerator and my coffeemaker and bowls where Charlie has the shelves. I may have to rearrange so I can use these (or have Charlie make some for that cabinet).

That is some tough stuff. I imagine the hot-wire tool is something meant for this kinda bending?

JMacs video is the basic method, my setup is a bit different to duplicate bends to any angle consistently - it's set up for production vs a hobby bender. I can bend up to 1/4 inch plastics.

I don't know what I was thinking but I put a horizontal shelf with a bit of an lip to store emergency canned goods like chili and soup. Having a place for booze makes more sense.

We keep cleaning supplies, plastic wrap, tinfoil, and a few other tall items in there. Something to keep them from tipping, and getting messed up would be nice.

Our booze mostly goes into wine bags that can be put under the table, though they usually go outside under the trailer for storage.

I know this is about Charlie's totally cool cabinet dividers for wine, etc. But those 5.0TA owners need to know the two storage cabinets under the frig and pantry will each hold two six packs of bottled beer.. each. SCORE!

Ours goes into glasses or mugs.

Good thing you have a 5th wheel. That way you can hitch the tanker to the bike rack plug. I think you would be legal in Alberta and Oregon.

But then you would have to sit in a pub to bypass the bottle stage. No pubs where I usually camp.
