Where to stow the garbage can and broom?

I am wondering where to store the garbage can and broom in our 21 foot hybrid. The broom seems to tall to fit anywhere except in the shower without being in the open . . . has anyone found a telescopic broom?

Also . . . any thoughts on the best way to deal with garbage in a small trailer?

Thanks

Store the broom under the bed or under one of the mattresses if you have bunks. As far as the trash can, good luck.

We bought one at Camping World. They actually have a couple different ones.

We store ours in the cargo bay while traveling and just take it out as needed.

This is what I use for a trash can outside folds up and doesn't take up to much space

I don't have any link, but I found a telescoping broom at target. Don't remeber the price, but it was very reasonable. I store it under the dinette benches.

Putting trash outside the trailer is asking for trouble IMHO. Bears, or at the least racoons.

Our broom is stored in the corner behind the toilet. For kitchen trash, we have a wastebasket in the under-sink cabinet. Out TT actually came with it.

broom idea

We snap ours on the backside of our little accordian curtin hiding the master bed. There is just enough give to snap the handle in too. That way you don't have to lift anything up to get it out when needed. Just unsnap.

My broom slides behind our sofa, along with the cutting board. The trash can, 8 gallon size, rides very well under the table. Plus, if the trash can is empty, what will it matter if you lay it on it's side under the table?

We had a full length broom and we stored it behind the toilet where a Velcro strip was stapled to the wall. It never fell out. Since then, we've bought the collapsible one like this one http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...-dustpan/35156 and store it in the closet.

As far as trash, we collect it into a grocery/walmart type bag and at the end of the night, tie it up and throw it away or put it in the back of the pickup where we don't have to worry about critters or animals getting curious. The topper on the pickup locks and that's pretty much that.

When we know we're going to have several people over and going to have that much more trash, we bought one of these http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...ontainer/42438 and line it with your standard kitchen bag. It works well for our needs.
