In shock - new Windjammer owner

After what was supposed to be a casual outing to "start looking" at a bunkhouse TT with an outdoor kitchen, we find ourselves new owners of a used 2016 3006WK. Trading in out Jayco Jay Feather X23B (hybrid). I'm a bit in shock, as we LOVE our hybrid, but wanted something quicker and easier to set up and with more room for our two girls. My main concern is the loss of kitchen storage - my hybrid had a TON of kitchen storage, and now I'm wondering where the heck I'm going to put everything. Any suggestions/tips/advice for this needy would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

We have been continuously amazed when looking at TT and 5th wheels concerning the lack of a pantry in most, very limited cabinets in many, and in the very trailers meant for families! I believe any person that is in charge of designing a RV should have to take their family for a 30 day trip before they are allowed to design. I would wager all their designs would feature better kitchen storage and a place for linen! You will need to shop for some plastic tubs that can fit into every available space. We did on our WJ3001w.

Welcome to the forum and to the V-nose club. Yes tt seem to have less storage depending on model. We learned to carry less and use our space wisely. Our V-Live model does have a lot of cupboard space . Enjoy and Later RJD

Some things we just can't live without. My DW says we carry too much, I say just in case. So our solution was large Rubbermaid totes. Of course her hair dryer had to stay on the trailer but extra stuff went in the totes. With the slides in and the totes placed in gaps, we're able to keep each other happy (just in case). :-)


Happy Camping!

Welcome and congrats on excellent choice of trailer. I am keeping an eye on this thread, I too am looking for some pointers on storage. So far, I have decided to try to severely limit what we will carry. We or maybe more like I, like to be prepared and carry everything I think will need, I guess that is the old Boy Scout in me. I am also putting a cargo box on a rack in the back of the truck to help.
