Add on Wardrobe/Cabinets

Hi, we bought a 2010 Flagstaff 425D. Our unit did not come with the overhead hanging cabinet or the hanging wardrobe and I was considerinr purchasing them. Does anybody have any experience with them? Are they useful? Worth the money?

Thanks so much!
Terra

My HW277 was delivered with the hanging wardrobe and pantry. We use the pantry every trip but only put up the wardrobe when we are camping for longer than a weekend. We also ordered an extra wardrobe and had the dealer install it (we are two families camping together and the second wardrobe does comes in handy but they are pricey) I like the wardrobes, but as I said they do not get used much. So depending on how you camp, the wardrobes may not be worth the cost. If you only have funds for one, I would opt for the pantry. It is so handy for paper goods, snacks, and bread.

I think they are useful. We were the opposite of gals though. If it was a quick weekend of just Friday and Saturday night, we would just leave the food in the plastic storage bin we used to transport it all in. But would use the wardrobe every time-once we got the door out of the way.

So now a decision to make, they are very helpful but do you need or want both? It seems you have not camped yet?? You may want to camp a few times and see how much shuffling around you have to do during your camping trip and which one you wish you had the most. And that may depend on how many people you have and your particular floor plan and storage requirements. Other forums I have visited also describe modifications for extra storage as well that maybe better cost wise.

BTW welcome to the forum and congratulations on your camper purchase. Many happy campouts with it.

My hw276 will have both the pantry and the wardrobe but I don't take delivery on it for another month. They seem to be a good idea...we'll see.

Get some of those little felt dots (quarter size) for where your bathroom folds up and touches walls and for your door to not scratch the ceiling. Another tip- Velcro the dinette padding to the wall-was always falling down on us.

Just bought an HW296 that came with the pantry, but not the wardrobe. Where do you buy them at? Tried looking on the Forest River website, but no luck.

I got mine through my dealer, have not seen them anywhere else. I hung an extra wardrobe in the bathroom as we use it as a closet. Gives us lots of storage for us gals LOL.

Have also seen people use regular closet hanging shelves that you get at walmart or target. Those are usually open so stuff is visible and would have to figure out how to hang them (I think I have have seen them use tension poles with a rod to hang the shelves). Not sure about how much weight this can take. The forest river ones zip closed (like the pantry).

We just got a 2011 Rockwood 2514G, it came with both the hanging wardrobe and pantry. But it did not have the brackets mounted in the ceiling. Any suggestions on what I could use or how I could mount them to the ceiling?
