Love the V-nose but the storage is SO different from my former Grey Wolf, Iím stumped! Thanks for ANY description of how you organize yours.
I keep my dishes in the overhead cabinet over the peninsula on the outside wall. I purchased a dish stack system that fits in the corner, cups and glasses are around the dishes. The section closest to the middle is where I stash my toaster oven.
For bathroom storage, when you open the door, I presume you only have one shelf under the sink. There is a panel that is blocking the access to the sink drains. My husband tapped around it & was able to remove that panel (it is stapled in). He then cut the panel in half and mounted it further in to protect the plumbing. I have a small plastic bin in the bottom portion that holds bottles of liquids (hand soap, dish soap, shampoo, cleaning supplies, etc.). If something leaks, it’s a lot easier to clean. I put our toilet paper on the top shelf.
In the upper cabinet, I use the bottom shelf for tooth brushes, toothpaste, sun lotion, etc. I usually roll my towels and washcloths and stand them on the top shelf. We use the hooks on the wall for wet towels.
The cupboard in the living room area (wall by bathroom) is where I put less used appliances and a few canned goods. I put the staples (flour, sugar, coffee) in stackable bins in the upper cabinet by the fridge.
We’re going to take an extended trip this summer, so i’m still figuring out locations for extracanned goods. Currently, I’m thinking under the bed since the front kitchen makes the trailer a bit heavy on the tongue.
Hope this helps.
