Storage in a 19'

Hi all,
We recently purchased a new to us 2016 19' Escape! We are coming from a 16' Casita so are enjoying the extra room😊. However, this model came with the super large refrigerator with the microwave under the stove. I am racking my brain as to where to store silverware and utensils! I know some people have a drawer under their closet but, alas, not so in ours. Does anyone have a solution to this dilemma? Also any ideas on how to hang bath towels?
Thanks in advance,
Karen

Where do you want to hang the towels?
3M Command Hooks come in white (various sizes ) for wet applications if you are hanging them in the bath.
You can also get suction hooks if you want to hang them outside ( under the awning ) to dry.

Walmart to the rescue. This is what we did on our 19 with the micro under the stovetop. Works great, under sink, cost around $20, perfect fit.

Thanks! Those sliding drawers look good-off to Walmart I go! Can I also ask how you organize your trailer? Did you have shelves put in your closet? Also, what do you store in those shallow cupboards under the microwave and under the fridge? The fridge is so huge compared to my Casita's, I'm beginning to wonder if I will use it for storing cereal etc.!

Is there a reason that you can't have a drawer under the closet? There's usually space there for one. Drawer fronts and probably the complete drawer can be purchased from ETI.

There are other spaces available for use also. One large space is under the closet and the other is behind the existing kitchen cabinets.

I, and some others, have made or fitted towel bars on the interior of the bathroom door. There is enough door frame there for screws.

I also made a long tea towel bar along the kitchen counter.

I made some 19 owner a drawer/tray that would fit in the microwave during travel to hold utensils. I think they took the tray out to make dinner and put it back when dinner was served. Pretty efficient use of space, methinks.
