Would not fit ours either because it dragged on the top and could not open the drawer without pulling very hard. Probably could have fixed it but just put the old one back in.Amazon.com: Camco 43508 White Cutlery Tray: Automotive



Now back to the 19' front shelf

Ok, as the beloved wife pointed out the tray sets on top of the drawer in Alf's picture.

For the shelf above the dinette, we bought some fake wicker baskets at Canadian Tire. They fit nicely in the space. 4 pretty much exactly fill up the width. When we want something out of a basket, we typically grab the whole basket and pull it down. This way we can store lots of little things, keep them handy, and not worry about them going ballistic during the tow.

We use the basket idea too. Cell phones by the 12v outlet up top, Kleenex, 2way radios on standby, paper and pens and misc stuff.

Did I hear that correctly? Are you calling your wife a basket case?

On some RV forum someone recommended baskets baskets baskets and she was right. Terry was thrilled when we got a small one that he could use for the things he takes out of his pockets at night. These things make a big difference sometimes.

No, but she does go ballistic when I drive, some times.

When cpaharley showed us his 21', I recall him having little cloth baskets in his overhead above the bed. Talked about loading with stuff in the house and then transferring to the trailer. Then you could pull out of cabinet to access. Sounded like a good idea.

Here you go, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
they come in different sizes depending on which cabinet you want to use. Small/medium/large are used.
