For storage, yes, found a place for everything and created some space for more. Indeed space is at a premium.
Under the sofa, which has access from both inside (lifting sofa to "half-jackknive") and outside via storage openings, I keep quite a bit...grill, propane cookstove and 1# propane bottles (for cooking outside), portable canopy (Paha Que...much more compact than the standard "scissor frame" camopies) plus other odds and ends. I also keep my Blue Ox there when not attached...access through curbside exterior opening.
The smaller front curbside access houses "lego block" levelers, exterior table that attaches to rail with the grill on curbside, and other odd and ends. BTW, this storage is continuous with the larger curbside storage and under sofa storage.
For roadside front storage, I keep all cords and hoses for hookup and sewer mgmt. toolkit, manual slide crank, etc.
The roadside dinette storage is also accessible via under the dinette cushions. I don't use the exterior door since memory foam bedding, pillows, games, etc. are stored there.
In the closets by the bed, I've installed 1 Sterlite plastic drawer set in each which gives drawers for clothes storage. We have little that needs to hang. Drawers by bed for clothes, etc.
On the inside of the bathroom door, I have a set of 6 hooks that hook over the door. On the outside of that door, I've installed hanging racks for kitchen/food storage. When the slide is in it comes within an inch of the rack...just right.
The pantry is for food/kitchen stuff. Most utensils/plates, etc. are in the large drawer.
Drawers under dinette and cabinets over dinette are for odds and ends including electric fry pan, colender, etc.
I also have 3 large Sterlite bins that have misc. stuff that are stored inside the trailer for travel. At the campsite, 2 are removed and placed outside under the camper and 1 remains inside...extra towels, some kitchen stuff, bedding, etc.
Probably more info than you wanted but hopefully it helps!
