Reconfigured the kitchen counter & shelf area for better use of space & functionality - A great solution that works for us, helping us from having to reach into the cabinets or storage area once we are set up.

That is exactly what I would like to do...where did you get the shelves?

Vic, I purchased the larger unit from Home Depot for less than 20- and the smaller one from Amazon.

It may look like alot of stuff but it's no more than I had before (actually I am a few baskets less) it sure has made organizing this area much easier. Here is a photo of what this area typically looked like...it worked but I was always scooting things aside and shifting small items around...

How tippy are these shelves? Do they need fastening to the wall or are they stable enough when free standing?

Extremely sturdy, Tom. I don't feel I need to fasten them to them wall. Unlike the over the bathroom toilet shelves I've seen used on the A-Frame, these storage units are made to support 200 lbs a shelf....a weight I will never come remotely close to.

The larger shelf stands over the stove, nice because it prevents any chance if sliding (they also have gripper feet that can be purchased if some is worried) it would take alot of bouncing to bounce over and tip. I've been in and out of my trailer door none too delicately or graceful and it's held firm. So far so good.

Sound good. I've always wondered about the etagere mods. It is good to hear the heavy construction keeps it well balanced.

It looks like the small one would be ideal for me.

Bravo! these are fabulous ideas. We are picking up our brand-new A122 on Sunday so I really appreciate getting a head start and how to glamp it out!

Fun baskets and bins keep much used or needed items (disposables and first aid things) within easy reach and visible (in clear boxes) if needed in a hurry, on a shelf mod as seen behind the small table in dining area.

Exclamation

Space is a definite concern with our A-Frame trailers. I bought this little appliance a couple months ago as a space saver for when I have electrical power (save the propane). It is a Cuisinart Oven Central that can be used to bake, sautť, roast, toast, griddle and melt. It comes with a casserole pan, muffin pan, grill and skewers. I know many A-Frame people carry an electric skillet and other appliances. Thought I'd share this one. It's pretty nice to make bacon and close the lid - no splatter. Clean up was pretty easy, it just wiped up.

Here is used the casserole pan to make the bacon (cut three strips in half) & closed the lid to cook both sides. Then I pressed pieces of Hawaiian rolls into the muffin pan. Added the bacon over all of them and over three of them I put cheese on top of the bacon & on two of them, I cracked an egg & closed the lid to cook a little longer. Thought I'd share the result. Definitely a glampy camping item for anyone's A-Frame adventure (when you know you'll have power) Not a Boondocker glamper item. LOL
