Vibe 6501 Clothing Storage Mod

The DW had a need for some clothing storage so we came up with this.

Made this clothing storage rack which measures 72”’H x 18”W x 5.5”D.
The materials used:
Qty - Description
3 - .25” x 6” x 4’ Oak Board
2 – 1” x 6” x 6’ Pine Lumber
3 – Plastic Woven Placemat
Black Paint
Glue
Staple Gun

Made dado cuts into the 1” x 6” x 6’ Pine Lumber to allow the .25” x 6” x 4’ Oak Board shelves to be glued into place.
Cut shelves to desired rack width.
Glue the shelves into Pine Boards. Make sure to square up before glue dries.
Cut Placemats in half & staple to inside of rack.
The only problem we have is, we made it just a little bit too wide. We now can’t open the step accessing the storage area. Not an issue for us we rarely ever use that access.
To mount, I used 3 wood screws thru the pine into back corner of the entertainment system.

My wife and I are considering a 6501. Do you recommend this trailer? Nice job on the hanging closet.

It depends on your situation, for my Wife and I it's perfect. We don't have kids, just 2 dogs.

This is our first TT so we can't compare, but we are satisfied with the construction. You'll read alot of post about the limited cargo carrying weight capacity but with the 6501 1,281 lbs. is plenty for the 2 of us.

How did you fasten this to the trailer wall? I want DH to add a narrow pantry between the refrigerator and back slide on our 2008 Rockwood 8313SS (Rockwood started putting pantries in that space around 2011 or so). The holdup right now is figuring out how to fasten it in so it won't tip over. Are there wall studs that can be located and used? We're very capable do-it-yourselfers at home, but trailer mods is a new area for us.

I did not go into the wall because I wasn't sure if how it is constructed.
I used 3 wood screws and went into the side of the entertainment system cabinet. Make sure you fasten in the back corner so you catch solid wood, the sides are just panel. You can see one of them in the 2nd picture at the top (looks like a silver spec).

I though I would have to put more in but 3 made it pretty sturdy.

Thanks PA Paco. We might be able to do it that way too. I like how yours turned out...nice storage but it doesn't take up any room to speak of.

Hi,
Sorry to change the subject. We have a Vibe 6501 and love it. Upgraded from a 16 ft FunFinder. Just wondering if that is an upgrade to the TV? Ours doesn't look that big!
Thanks,
Jane

We upgraded it to a 26" Samsung LED, it fits perfect.

Nice job. I really like your idea.
We have a 2013 Vibe 6501.
I replaced the cabinet in the bathroom (above the toilet) with one that was slightly larger. Then I re-installed the old cabinet in the hallway to the right of the wardrobe/entertainment center. Then I installed a drawer pull on the bottom of the cabinet that we can use for additional hanging of shirts, dresses and jackets.
I'll add pictures later.
