I would look at one of those nice cupboard above the table and add shelves to it or what is that under the sink?

We had the same question when we were getting ready to move our stuff to our new 233S a couple of years ago. C'mon! No silverware drawer?

We basically store ours in the pantry closet adjacent to the kitchen. Inside the closet I have the standard plastic flatware organizer for eating utensils that sits on top of a two-drawer container (for other kitchen items). Kinda looks like this ...

You're telling me these units have no drawers? I guess I am lucky to have 2.

LOL, I did the same thing ~ "where's the drawers???" I was thinking of another camper

I went with a cabinet with baskets to organize stuff. I did a drawer for my cooking utinsels. I bought the caddy from Sam's for $15 that holds plates, napkins, and silver ware. I needed the counter space so that's where the caddy lives once we arrive along with the coffee pot.

Took a bit of trial and error but this is working nicely for us.

Happy Camping!

Thats what I was thinking Tri Guy, I am looking at either a stand alone plastic unit I could put up on a small shelf when setting up or possibly in the ward robe, I saw a guy in one of these threads re build his wardrobe into shelves however in the 183 it is a very odd uneven shape inside I am good but not that good, not quite sure how I missed this or more impotently Forest River, still an amazing trailer with an amazing layout. Any one build anything in?

This is the pantry I modified. Did the same basic thing in the closet since we don't need hanging clothes space. Now have room for towels, extra kitchen storage.

The plastic drawer system is light weight and inexpensive. You should find drawers to fit in the cabinets possibly at WM, etc. but def at the container store, Bed Bath and Beyond, etc. I really wanted the cabinet and counter space.

I just have one question - what kind of an idiot designed a "camping trailer" and didn't think to include something as simple as space for for eating utensils which forces the owners to come up with their own ideas (all of which are great)... Come on guys - put some drawers in these rigs!!!!

At least they included a place to sleep and go to the bathroom....
