Glue vertical supports to the side walls,go from the bottom shelf to the underside of the upper(new) shelf. Use thicker material than the Fac. use for the upper shelf bottoms,no dippy do. Youroo!!

You could also use free-standing wire shelves/stands instead of the added shelves. We found them at WalMart.

Us too.
Stack-able wire baskets from WalMart or your favorite
kitchen goodies store.

I am not sure what you call them but I used some metal strips with slots in them that you can cut to length. You can get them at Home Depot or Menards. You then buy a bag of clips that fit into the slots. The clips support the shelving. In the clip bag are screws you can use to fasten the clips to the cabinetry. The screws are short and if it is easier you can screw them to the wall of the camper. Buy a piece of Filon or thin plywood and cut to size. I used this meathod in my last camper as well as my Flagstaff and never had a problem. The other advantage is the shelves are adjustable.

I'll second the shelf sandards and clips. use quality 1/2 plywood for the shelves and you'll be fine.

Anyone have pictures of your shelve mods (e.g. kitchen, pantry, overheads)? We just brought home a 2009 32 BHTS and will probably remove the lazy susan in kitchen and replace with shelves. Also, thinking of adding additional shelves in the pantry area...

Thanks!
Mike

I added shelves to one of our closets in our 374ts. I was able to use a stub finder with a electrical indicator to find the aluminium studs in the wall to attatch 1x3's to the walls. I then set shelves on top and used a brad nailer to lock them in place, and a few screws to hold tight. Depending on how much room you have in your cabinets, or how much space your willing to loose? You can get a few peices of oak or pine and cut side peices to fit in, then set your self on to them and use a couple brads to hold them in. Basically a shelf with legs. You may also be able to pick up a few small metal shelf bracket pins or adjustable shelf brackets, (attatched link, and last photo). Just use a drill with a depth setter to drill the holes for the cabinet pins, a little glue on the pins, and compression will hold the shelves in place. You can buy the cabinet shelf pins, (last picture), for a dollar or two at just about any home center.
