We just brought the camper from the storage to clean it, and I open the rv storage/bay door and it looked like this:

Those were the first two I thought about when I read your title

The third item is a mini roll of EternaBond tape.

LOL! we can relate!

One draw back to our prior V-Lite was the lack of basement/belly storage.

We traveled with the Winegard satellite dome sitting in the shower stall and our Char Broil in its stow-and-go duffle bag sitting on the living room floor. The "honey wagon" rode in the bed of the truck with the Yeti and the Zero Gravity lounge chairs.

Open the outside storage bay and JUMP BACK! DH is OCD about everything being neat, but with that small access door, which actually led to the storage under the queen bed, which was also accessible from inside, things always seemed to be tangled like 'sketti when we got home.

We are lovin' the pass through storage bay on the 5er. All but the honey wagon fits in there! And the small front storage (under the bedroom) is awesome for storing the 50 amp extension cord, 100' of satellite cable, extra water hoses, etc. We can even fit the stinky slinky in there (packed in one of those WalMart circular wreath storage cases).

If the weather holds out as predicted, we're hoping to *finally* do a shake down next weekend! (sigh) Bought 'er 01/04 and she's still a virgin.

A comealong. LOL, don't hear that term often outside the deep South, or at least I haven't.
