We have had many readers contact us to write an article with photos of how we store things in the Roadtrek when we travel. Meryl is a master of finding a place for anything to fit - in the house, in the car, and especially in the Roadtrek. I asked Meryl to write this article. Here again is Meryl...
Next we move to the drawer. We have assorted small items that we might need during the trip - kitchen scissors, a day of the week pill box that has OTC medications in it - aspirin, acetaminophen, etc. Not that we take them daily, but different meds are in the different days for convenience and so that we don’t need to buy bottles of each for the rare times they might be needed while we are traveling. Hooks to go on either side of the Roadtrek and a rope to go across from them for laundry or drying towels are in here. Anything else like this is in here for easy access.
I put our "last minute" bag (stuff we need at home up until we leave is all tossed in here to come out to the Roadtrek for a trip) in here, sometimes laptops, stuff we buy en route, etc. I also use the space to the side of it for laptops and a travel printer on some trips (leaving more space inside it on those trips) and the space in front of it for my backpack if I bring it. This space, like where food is stored, varies on each trip as to what is traveling where. Items here are a bit large to find other places to keep it in the Roadtrek. I use 3 of the tension curtain rods across the front of the items (which may be further in than the front of the section) to help hold the items in place. If I need to access the cubby under the driver’s side of the bed the holder needs to come out (and I need to climb under the bed in this opening to get to the cubby to get stuff out). If I need to access the cubby with the spare paper goods I just need to move whatever is in the front. The holder can be folded down for storage or if we need to get something else large into this area. On one occasion I managed to get 2 cast iron flower pot holders into this area, on a diagonal mostly under the stuff there normally, and protruding out the front of the section into the aisle.
