And, you don't want stuff rattling around. So Ruth has come up with some great ideas to fix that problem too...
We've been pretty innovative when it comes to good use of kitchen storage space in the motorhome. A few years ago we got rid of our microwave. Because we're hardly ever plugged into electricity anyhow, we hardly ever used it...except as a storage box. So why not get rid of it entirely!
I took the microwave out, and built a shelf. Then, I made some attractive doors out of plexiglas.
Look at all the kitchen stuff we hide in there!
For the pots and pans, Ruth made cloth bags for them, and separate ones for the lids. No more rattles!
Lots of pots and pans to store.
In their bags...no more rattles!
And in the bathroom, there are wire rack shelves, and Ruth made holders out of 2 quart milk jugs with the tops cut off. Keeps things well organized, and things don't fall out when we're traveling.
Isn't it amazing how much "stuff" you need to keep in the bathroom?
Pretty efficient use of a small space!
It's funny, but I came across an advertisement for a similar unit to our motorhome. Except it was a 2003 (ours is a 1996) with only 25,000 miles (40,000 kms) on it. And it was a 29 foot class A. (Ours is a 28ft). But it came with far less storage space. Even the lower compartments were not as nice as the ones we have. I had fleetingly entertained the thought of upgrading to something newer at some point, but I quickly decided that the motorhome we have is the motorhome that suits us best. We'll be hanging on to Sherman for a while yet, I think!
A great deal on an electric outdoor grille...this is actually a fantastic deal...
And in Canada, they finally have a great deal on a GPS. I almost got excited thinking this was the one I wanted, but once again, it doesn't come with Mexico maps! However, if all you need is Canada and USA maps, then this is a great deal...
