5 convenient items for Hardside

Since space is limited compared to my previous travel trailer - I have found there are 5 things I like using eith the hardside pop up.

1. Hanging canopy organizer - holds all the common items frequently needed such as.paper towels , doggie poop bags, leashes, cell phone, snacks, etc

2. Collapsible covered trash bag holder - wonderful for trash, bugs and odors stay away - folds down to a few inches

3. Stacking mesh holders - use it for a coffee bar

4. Over the cabinet hook - slip it over the window ledge and use for my keys

5. Small folding step stool - extremely light weight and folds down to a few inches

Yes - I gotta have my coffee and this makes it easy to pull all the stuff out and have ready to make for morning and evening wind up and wind down...this makes the moment of enjoying the java all the more special. Haha

"Stacking mesh holders - use it for a coffee bar"

I love those mesh holders since I came across them at Big Lots but couldn't find a real reason to use them until now. I still don't have a need for them in my trailer but I could use them at work until needed in the RV.

Good list of space saving items!
We have that collapsible trash bag holder too! I use smaller (shorter) bags, so I use less "poles" to make the trash bag holder shorter. We use ours inside the camper.

The key thingie is pretty cool, too. I'll keep an eye out for one of those for sure. The folding step stool looks mighty handy as well.

I hope you don't mind if I add to your post's theme, Handbuilder... here are a couple of more ideas for folks:

We use a bathroom suction cup item (soap holder?) stuck on the microwave door front for Gary's wallet. This way it's kind of tucked around the corner, out of immediate entry eye sight.

We also use suction cup style hooks, for hanging trash bags outside, up off of the ground. He hangs it on the rear roof of the camper. While grilling Gary likes a trash bag outside for things like meat wrappers, sweet corn husks and *ahem* beer cans. This trash bag goes in the dumpster each night when we go to the bath house for our showers.

Here are some ideas I did inside my trailer, it does not look pretty but for a guy in it I don't mind:
- plastic curtain around the sink, splashing water solved
- multiple hangers for whatever across the curtain rod
- collapsible storage net and cabinet hanged by a hanger...lol
- more stuff you could think of with hangers
Here are pics to see the potential of hangers:

I love what hangers could be use for in our trailer...

Warning: too much weight may collapse the curtain rod

Oh for goodness sakes ko777!!
... it must be a guy thing and I just wouldn't understand.

I will admit though, we too use plastic hangers hooked on the roof fold out towel bar. I hang a hand towel on a hanger for drying hands, a dish towel on a hanger after drying dishes, a dish wash cloth on a hanger after use so it will dry, etc. and space them out to get air between.

Deb - great idea for shortening the height of the trash bag holder! I dont think I woild have figured that out! I was still seeking a small inside trash can..the one I had in my travel trailer takrs up too much space. I also like the soap holder idea - my husband will find that extremely useful!

Ko777 - You are definitely a hanger man! I like that green thing - but Id prob hang off my canopy outside. I dont like ducking and with my clumsiness, Id prob pull things down! haha I hang my towel outside on the canopy or over my gear deck rail to dry...depending on the weather.

Its great to see what others do to keep organized with such a limited living area. The pics are helpful!

I like the brown hanging shelf thing. Where did you get it at? I have no problem finding the larger size ones with 5-7 shelves but your's is about the right size I'm looking for.
