FR3 Storage Problems

Hello All,

We are new owners of an FR3. Leaving soon for a 1 month trip. I am having a serious problem with lack of storage...kitchen, bath, bedroom to fit all that we will need. We traded in our Class C Sunseeker. It had much more storage space. Any creative ideas out there how to pack/store items for a long trip?

Thank you!

We added shelves in the kitchen, bathroom and entrance closet. We are gone for 8 weeks, plenty of room.

We had the same problem when we traded in our older MH for the FR3. The first thing we did was to decide what we "really" needed to bring versus what we wanted to bring. Was is necessary or just nice to have? If you check through this forum, you'll see that many owners did some creative things, including what we did like adding shelves in the cabinets, and just try to take advantage of every nook and cranny. We only take what we believe we'll actually use for the specific trip we have in mind. Also, since we only use the overhead bed when we take our grand-kids with us, we'll use that area for storage as well. Good Luck!

FR3 Storage Problems

JersayGuy - my husband said that if you post some details he will do the same for ours. Can you either post info or send me a private message? We have been using the closet for dirty laundry but your modification would be a much better use of the space.

I used brass like bookcase shelving strips and clips, cherry bookcase shelves, and mahogany edge strips. Got everything from Lowes. I used liquid nails and nail brads to hold the edge strips while the glue set. I had to cut down the shelves to fit using a table saw. I used 1x1 wood strips glued the MH closet corners and screwed the shelving clips to them. We have over 6000 miles on the MH with no issues.
