The rules: if you mess it up, you clean it up - period. All things stowed by end of day.

Just the 2 of us and the little dog so its easy for us to keep it clean. The thing cost to much to let it get very messy.

I have a dog and a young child but I still tend to keep it neater than my house. LOL. For some reason I enjoy keeping the fiver clean and hate cleaning the sticks and bricks.

A place for every thing and everything in its place. Except when I don't then stuff gets lost broken or purchased again. Key is knowing where I put it.

I find if it not put away or in its place takes longer to travel, pack up or even head out. Saves stuff from being stuck in the slides or getting broken. The basement is constant refinement. As you add equipment it changes almost every trip. The only problem is towels, if we can they hang outside on a line, otherwise in raining in the shower area to dry.

Mine's usually fairly clean and picked up, because there's not a lot of room for clutter. However, the grand children haven't started camping with us yet. When that starts, alll bets are off...

Like others, it`s fairly cleaned up...until.......grandchildren....I need not say any more. As for teens....get them their own apartment (tent)..... we had 3 of them. We don`t have a coat closet so we use a stand up coat rack to hang coats & hats on. My wife has to carry a box full of toys in the 5er for the little people, so anther item to find space for. All our boots, shoes, etc., are just inside the trip over as you see fit......oh yes, the coat rack is laid down on the floor between the two rear slides when we`re moving.
