Newbie needing help with bathroom storage

We recently purchases a 2021 Forest River wild wood xlite and are trying to get ready for our first trip. I'm looking for a way to get a little storage in the bathroom. With the weird angled wall, the back wall is only 14 inches wide. Hubby doesn't wasn't anything attached to the walls. We also want to keep weight down, which rules out building a wood shelf.

I just want something to store toilet paper and other "essentials" so it won't need to hold a super heavy weight. Hubby is a big guy and he will already be hitting the wall and door as it is, so I don't want to do the hanging shoe rack on the door.

Pic is our bathroom and a shelf like what I'd like to do, (but obviously this one and all similar I've found are too big).

I'm sure this isn't just a wildwood issue, so I'm hoping someone has another idea.

thanks for helping a newbie! . Click image for larger version

I would look for a hanging basket type storage. We have a lightweight two tier rack in our bathroom. Cant find it online and too cold and snowy to venture to the driveway and get a pic, sorry.

Wow that is a tight area. Something light and installed high on the wall is what you need. I think it could be built light and installed correctly. Maybe not travel with it loaded if you are concerned. I would build it into the corner to take advantage of the additional support.

I'm assuming the width is the issue with the shelf unit from Wayfair. You'd have to be willing to put in some work, but what cutting the Wayfair shelves down to size? You'd have to expoxy/JB weld nuts back in the pipes to attach the legs, and I'm not sure how feasible that is.

We ended up piecing two of the same style shelves from Wal-Mart (~$20 each) together because one alone wasn't near tall enough. We were fortunate though; we had plenty of width.

I got this from Amazon.. Hung it high on the wall and Put it up with about 6 command hooks. Overkill but I wanted to be sure it didnt fall and crack the toilet under it.. I did take it down during travel just in case. I used it for all my towels. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

We have a Flagstaff 19FBS and store TP under the sink, but you could do over the door hanging baskets that are fabric and lightweight, or something similar like an over the door shoe holder. Lots of good ideas here:

I've also seen tips on using old coffee cans stacked on top of each other and painted that can sit behind the toilet and can store a few rolls at a time. This one took it a step further and wrapped it.

I made a custom double shelf above the toilet.

Make sure the lid is closed when driving down the road… otherwise every single roll stored will land in the toilet!

I think all these are great ideas just remember if you put your RV/Trailer in storage, lock these rolls up in a cupboard. Mice or rodents will find them. Ask me how I know.

Coffee can idea is one I may borrow...

You can do more once you think of it as yours and not something you are trying to sell. Others will disagree but I like my trailer better now that I've moved past worrying about drilling a hole somewhere in it. I just decided it's mine for 10 years and I want it how I want it. That first drill was hard though.

Agreed!

The first hole is the hardest. After that, DRILL BABY DRILL!
