Storage ideas for A-Frame campers

We were looking for ways to declutter our camper while we are camping. We did not want to do any permanent mods nor drill any holes. We bought one of these at Walmart -


And we modified it a little - couldn't use the top shelf back and took off the bottom section of legs - and then it fits perfect behind the stove. We can even open the stove while it is in place. We liked it so much, we went back and bought a second one for the counter above the microwave. They look much better than the stacking drawers we were using.

A second idea - folding storage ottoman

Picked up a couple of these at a local store. Has dual purposes - use it as a footrest plus store our clothes in them. Just thought it was a neat idea - and they fit under the table when not being used. Keeps the clothes out of sight.

Storage

Another pic of the ottoman (disregard the color - it is a dark purple, but under the table, it just looks dark brown)

You're my hero!!

I have been browsing the web after out first outing (A126) for something to help with organization after setup. These AFrames are tight and you have to get smart about putting stuff 'in it's place' in order to enjoy the trip.

These shelves are perfect! Had I not already been into.... Um mm.... The adult beverages I'd be heading to Walmart right now...

Nice...

BTW: any thoughts on the shelf behind the sofa on the rear interior of the camper? May not be an issue on your A.

I would never be allowed in our camper with muddy shoes like that.

@ Jeep4two, we don't have the shelf issue - I have the 128 which is the double dinette. At least that is the way it came - but - we leave the back dinette as a bed.

@ Rugged Brown - his shoes aren't muddy as we haven't had much rain - it is just the way they look and dust from it being so dry. And we do have rugs which I tell him to stay on. (He doesn't always listen) And this was a spur of the moment thing just to set if the shelves and ottoman fit.

What a great woman. Not only do you allow him to wear dusty shoes in the camper, you defend him when he does.

Just got one of these and some dorm crates (stackable rectangle). Set it up and presto! More storage!

Thanks for the tip!

Glad it works for you too. Also, please share any tips you come up with! There are not too many of us Hard-siders out there so we have to stick together and share our ideas and concerns.
