More Storage Racks Installed

New bathroom storage racks

New bathroom storage racks

Today I replaced the old rusted bathroom rack and added a new, taller one that will hold shampoo and other bottles more securely.

I also added a second one to the closet door.  (Some of the things pictured in the closet racks will get moved to the bathroom racks.)

So I’m having a ball in my little camper even though it’s still stuck in the driveway for a few more days.  🙂

The two racks in the closet will help cut down on clutter elsewhere in the trailer.

  3. What holds the racks to the white surface? Are they screwed in?

    • No, Judy, they are not screwed into the fiberglass. I had to use rivets.

      If you have a surface that screws can bite into, like the cabinet doors, screws work great.

    • Ginger, I live in northwest Georgia. I used to have contact information on my blog, but took it down due a couple of scary emails I received. 🙂

    Has to feel great having more ways to be organized. Glad I got another peek out the front door…I really want that. We got the table plate up the road and replaced…peeked in a new four season 25 ft fifth wheel…chked the bed out first. My side dinette sleeper could be three inches wider 🙂

    • I got used to the skinny bed and it doesn’t bother me. Some people have done mods to make the dinette bed wider. Lone Wolf Girl on the Casita forum is one that comes to mind. I also remember a post from years ago about a guy making Liberty twin beds wider using the same idea–inserting a cushion as thick as the bed between the wall and bed at night. But then you have the problem of what to do with it during the day.

      I saw another guy make a wider dinette bed by angling the corner of the bed so the bathroom door would still open at night. But then, that cuts inches out of your walking space.

      What I used to sometimes do is pull my bed out from the wall an inch or two at night. It gave me more elbow room.

      It may turn out that you will need a bigger rig to fulltime in. There are a few people who can do it in a Casita. I could fulltime in my Casita by myself, but after a few weeks camping in it with Ron and the dogs, it starts getting to me.

        I’ll try that…pulling out from wall a bit. Sure like this set up for day use especially. Goal us at least a year with this rig…if we do go bigger if will feel even more special. Rain…books and Skippo 🙂

    did you use rivets on the shelves in bathroom? Did you use them also in back of your kitchen sink? I love your blog……thanks for sharing.

    • Yes Bonnie, I used rivets. There is nothing to screw into.

      However, I use Command Hooks for my shower curtain and they are really stuck on. So maybe you could use larger Command Hooks to hang a rack from, then use the hooks on the bottom upside down to keep the shelves from jumping off.

      I was able to use small nuts and bolts to mount the paper towel holder to the range hood in the kitchen because I could reach the back to screw the nuts on. That’s not possible on the kitchen or bathroom walls.
