If I wanted shelving, instead of drawers, the white metal closet shelving is what I'd be considering. Easy to cut to fit and lighter than wood...plus I'm not a very good carpenter! Or have you considered a hanging drawers / shelves like one of these?

I was thinking of shelves as well but we filled it up with hanging stuff so I'll wait and see. That's the trouble in the mountains you have to pack for three seasons lol.

I will have to measure the closet tomorrow or rather when I can level it next. These look interesting and more like the look I would like, although they may be a bit narrow.

Otherwise time to get out the table saw. I was thinking, one side for hanging and one side for shelves.

Here is another thought which cuts down on weight;

That is the same issue we have in our "W". The plastic drawers we use fit in the "dead space" below the hanging items. The bottom of anything really long, like our rain jackets, just lays on top of the drawers.

I never realized how much stuff we managed to fit in our "W" until I started unpacking it this week. I'm really looking forward to having more space...as long as it doesn't generate more "stuff"!

With the Blue Streak Chemical Dispenser, is it still necessary to add chemical treatment to your black water tank after dumping tank?

No extra chemical needed.

Had to do something today so first thing was lowering the dream dinette. It was so high when in up position it was unusable. Lowered a whole three inches.
Then into the workshop. I made a silverware divider for the top kitchen drawer. Then lined all three drawers with cork.

How did you lower it? I was thinking of this as well. It looks like the is not a lot of room to move the mechanism on the underside of the table, but maybe enough for a three inch drop? DW complains it is too high.

Btw, very nice job on the drawer. I just send a plastic insert.

That's exactly what I did with the dinette. Underneath the part that connects to the bottom of the table has four screws. Removed screws and moved it as close to the end as it would allow still keeping the release handle still hidden. The release handle also has to be moved. Again just four screws. Total time 10 minutes. Results were 3 inch drop which is perfect. Ill take a pic next time I'm out there.

You guys are making me really glad we did the special order for a traditional pole and pedestal dinette table. Nothing a quick pass with a hacksaw won't cure on those!
