Basement Organized!

Finally, after 7 Months of full timing, the basement is done. For now.

That can't be right ... I still see empty space! :-)

Looks great Ron! You realize that it won't stay that way very long don't you? No matter how many times I rearrange my tubs, the one in the center always calls me first!! I'm still trying to re-box, and find a method to my madness!

DW just saw the re-organization. She has plans for the empty space!

Yeah...he's teasing us with all that daylight. I have to use a miner's light and a flashlight when I crawl into mine.

Ahhh, the never ending quest for more space. I am forever seeking another few inches for some additional space for the newest addition!!
You guys with the newer coaches with the rear storage space, I can only wish!!!

I thought I came up with a brilliant idea regarding additional storage space. Install one of those hitch platforms in the rear receiver and then attach a fiberglass dock box. Voila! For some reason the DW put the kabash on the project. She felt it would detract from the beauty of the coach.

That rear storage measures 42x42" but is only 9" tall. Still, I think I'll put a couple of shallow "under bed" storage bins there for the 50 amp power cable and 30 amp extension cords, and for sewer lines, a slinky and other connectors, and whatever else fits. In other words, a utility closet.
Perhaps the best move I made to provide storage was to order the crew cab dually Ram without the back seat. This gives me a clear 36x60x30" storage area to configure as we need. I plan to make a four-legged free standing shelf from aluminum angle iron and plywood, storage underneath and whatnot on the shelf. At least half of that will be for storing my camera gear - I'm a working pro - and I'm sure my wife would like the rest for storing her quilting fabric. We're fitting a low-profile utility bed to the Ram, so there will be an additional 40 cubic feet of lockable storage there too for tools, etc. Full timers can use all the space they can create!

I'm with you A&A, if I had the rear storage area it would be used for "hook-up's", e.g. power cord[s], water hoses, sewage slinky, etc.
Thak would free up space in the basement for other stuff!!!

Assuming I can find two under-bed bins to fit under there, I'd actually get four: when moving, all the hookup stuff goes there, and two identical bins filled with quilting fabric rides inside. When destination is reached and camp is set up, the hookup stuff is all outside being used, and the the fabric boxes then move into that storage space. Planning ahead (and then discover what doesn't work! )

There's no way you could have that much empty space full timing.

Alan - us FL owners figure that our one and only basement is about that size.

We liked the layout of the FL a lot until we looked at the basement ... we then looked at each other and said in unison, "Uhn-uh!" It's about the only thing we've agreed on in years...

One day.... we will be organized like that.
I remarked to Hubby how much vertical space we were wasting and how could we "bungee cord' the chairs up to the walls with hooks. Anyone tried this? We also have camp chairs in bags (for company) Thinking about standing them upright, if they are not to tall and putting a cord around them too.
