Organizing pass through storage

Here is what my pass through storage looks like right now:


I'm about to start loading it up with tools, bins, and such. I want to make places to store the wheel chocks and levelers, as well as a grill, Little Red Campfire, etc.
Before I try to reinvent the wheel, I'd like to see how you guys have your storage area organized. Please post up photos of what they look like and share how well it all works for you.
Thanks!

If possible I would recommend storing tools on curb side instead of driver side. Curbside would be safer to access in case of breakdown on the road.

Never would have thought of that (until too late). Thanks!

Storage? I thought that's where the kids ride...

Most of my stuff in storage lives in a container of some sort - either Rubbermaid tote or 5-gallon bucket or a few totes that the lid snaps to the bin above it (convenient for small stuff).

Terier makes a great point about safety and tool access. I never thought of it, but my tools are accessible from the front hatch.

This winter I'm making a shelf for the storage area so I can slide my zero-gravity recliners out while there is stuff on top of them. Right now, they are on the bottom because they're the largest, but I have to remove a ton of stuff to get to them. I'm thinking of a 2x8 or 2x10 standing on its side and plywood across the top. Should be easy to make up.

Suspended a rack on garage door track for lawn chairs. Rack in front for awning sun screens, additional fold up chairs & RVQ on back wall hangers. Outside tv comes out first

Large rubbermaid bins with tops. One for hoses, regulator, filter. One for
awning lights, extension cords, wind socks etc. One for leveling blocks.
We use canvas folding chairs that I can stick on top of the bins. The chairs
are typically last in and first out when we camp.
Ground mat also fits in there- mine slides right on top of the fresh water
tank.
Also have a 3 gallon bucket with various small stuff in it. The bucket is
for emergency use but it's there if I need a bucket.

Not a neat freak, just short, fat and very lazy. Got tired of having to just about crawl into the basement to stow and retrieve the lawn chairs, etc. and stacking and un-stacking to find the sun screen we wanted. We have the main sun screen in two pcs and one for each end. It was just a big hassle.

The garage door track is a great idea, but I'm really liking the PVC tubes mounted to the wall.
Since things like the slinky, beach umbrella, and patio rug will be stored in fence post pipes under the camper (outside stuff stays outside due to fleas, etc.), I'm going to have to work to think of stuff I could store in indoor tubes like those.
