And it looks like they're deep enough stuff would stay in there while driving down the road.




Got the site bookmarked!
Yes they are very strong and the VHB tape will hold almost anything. I designed the shape and size of each to be able to hold the size stuff I would put in them like shampoo and bath stuff. I also told him where to put dividers and angle between front and back. Both of these have holes in the bottom. Very cheap for custom work and he can customize them to whatever size you want.

I also had him make a shoe drawer for under our front bench, a tray for our fridge and have some cabinet dividers on order.

Wow! Thank you all for your creative ideas. We will be looking into these possibilities for our trailer.
One note...what is VHB tape? We have never heard of it before, and if this works with the travel movement of the trailer...we want some:-)

Thanks...Google was my "later in the day" plan:-) Now, I will just search for Very High Bond tape locations when my chores for the day are completed (sunshine is out and the weeds are wanting to claim our turf).

If you look at the backs of some items you'll see what looks like a strip of paper with red markings/lettering on it. I believe that's the VHB tape. Hey, I didn't know what it was at first either. Every business/industry/hobby/whatever has their own acronyms that take a while to figure out.

When I first read a thread using that term, my brain first thought "VHS tape" and couldn't figure out why someone was using a player for those in their trailer.

VHB is used in many applications like body side moldings on cars or any other place a high strength bond is needed. It works great to hold things to fiberglass trailers where you need a strong bond. It can be removed but is better used where you don't plan on trying to remove whatever you are attaching. Best tip is to follow the instructions and have a clean surface and have the tape above 70 degrees when applying. There are several types of VHB for different applications.

I will try to remember to take some pictures of the bathroom pieces so you can get a better idea of how they look installed.

Thanks Tom and Cheryl.

I'm thinking I could buy a roll of that stuff anywhere (Lowe's, Home Depot, Amazon) and then just use it to stick stuff to the walls.

I've got so many things bookmarked that I've read about in this forum that I'm going to have to break it down into different folders (RV accessories, RV - interior, RV - general, or whatever) as the generic RVs folder is getting pretty darn big! No worries - it's great to get all these links.

And yeah, photos! One can never get enough photos when you're trying to figure stuff out. Supply more images that my brain can remember at night and implant into my dreams.

It's not all the same and if you use VHB tape on the walls, don't expect to ever remove it. Go to the 3M site and read instuctions.

And if you install anything on your paneling if you remove object you will pull the exterior off with it . So if you use best to leave and not remove . Pat
