4 Drawer Wire rack mounting inside 2011 Shamrock?

Will there be any issues mounting this kit above the Short Wardrobe on the Shamrock 233S interior?

Weirdest thing, tons of storage space ... absolutely no drawers

ClosetMaid ShelfTrack 4-Drawer Kit-2815 - The Home Depot

The kits feels heavy in the box, but thinking once it is laid out and I hoping I can hit studs appropriately for mounting it should be OK?

Apart from weight, which you mentioned, the one issue you may have to address is keeping the doors from sliding out and banging into the doors while in transit. These kinds of hardware are not designed for RVs, so they do not typically have stop mechanisms. You may have to improvise with some type of a fastener or small bungee cord. Just to be safe, be sure to add that to your take-off checklist.

These are going on the wall above the short nightstand on the for right side of the 233S - its labeled wardrobe and has a hanging rod inside, but its only like 2.5' tall.

Most Likely we will just pull the drawers off and stack them inside the cabinet when we travel.

Thanks

Chris

We just hung some cloth shelves from the bar. Guess they are really closet organizers. Not as permanent as your solution but cheap.

You can see what we used here, post #2:

2401R What's Done So Far

These come in various sizes and colors and hang from the rod. They are relatively inexpensive and quite light. As mentioned above, not as permanent or as strong as wire baskets by any means.

We used those in the tall wardrobe on the other end of the camper. This i s for the bare wall space on the right side of the camper above the little end table/wardrobe ( they took this one out of newer models )

Ah, I see. Open wall space with sufficient room to mount something useful . . . where'd you come up with that?

We just went to measure and realized that unless we remove the bedding from the fold up ends, we cant put the storage racks on that wall, or we would have to take everything off the rack every time, not just the drawers.... so I think we are goign to skip these in the 233S - they would probably work in the full sized TT without the hybrid ends.
