Did a quick mod tonight and added shelves to the front closet in the TT.
We weren’t using the closet rod much, and I suspect the roads we travel (and my driving) would probably have not left many items hanging anyway.
Worked out pretty well, my only complaint is the shelving is heavy! (3/4” material)
I stayed pretty light on all of the other shelves/storage mods using lighter material, but came up with this plan and was using mostly stuff on hand (also we are heading out again soon, so didn’t have time for much more, but wanted to sneak this in…)

As usual, if you’ve got questions on the details, just ask!

Front Closet

mn 308,
I was thinking about doing the same thing to the front closets in our 26RS. Seems like a lot of wasted space. How did you attach the shelf supports to the walls, and the shelves to the supports? Thanks.

Hi roleen.

I used shelf supports and clips similar to THESE.
They are not attached to the walls, or directly to the shelves.

I cut the shelves to fit the width and depth as close as possible or my material allowed, and routed 2 small channels on each edge of the sides of the shelf material. The vertical shelf support is held against the closet wall and in its vertical orientation by this ‘slot’.

Then I assembled it starting with the bottom shelf.

I also added a couple of small (wooden) spacers under the bottom of the vertical metal shelf supports, as I didn’t want them ‘digging in’ to the original factory shelf.

I can try to get another more detailed pic or two into the album to show this when (if) I get a chance.

mn 308, thanks for the info. That looks great! I'm going to try the same thing if I can find a friend with a router.
