We bought some rolls of regular drawer and cabinet lining at Walmat and use the clear plastic tupperware containers to store the articles. The rubber drawer liners is basically the same material they line tool boi drawerd with and it works very well at a reasonable price and nice appearance.

If there is room for things to slide around, you did not bring enough toys.

We have a large slideout tray on on side, the other we use a couple of big plastic bins, one holds our matts and cheap folding chairs. The good recliners stack in. Front of thed. Bins. Some things, folding table, grille stand, colemab lantern, ladder extension, get bungies to the back wall.

We just finished installing the storage bin sliding drawers in the basement of our 2005 HR Endeavor - 2 Kwikee 90" 2-way's. It was a bit of a job for the 2 of us since they are pretty heavy, but they seem to work well. We got the tolerance on the one drawer too close and had to file a little off on the screw holes to have it slide easily. We are using the clear plastic containers for smaller items and are in the process of getting things organized. We did lose some space from the hardware, but are utilizing it by storing long narrow items in these spaces.

One of the first things I did when we took delivery of our coach was to line all of the basement compartment floors (including the two slide outs) with a brownish looking artificial grass kinda carpet with a foam type (non-skid) backing. The floors in my compartments are the white poly corrugated grainy material mentioned in some of earlier posts. I got the brown so it wouldn't show dirt easily. It is not glued or taped in so it can be removed easily and the dirt shaken out of it. The rubber backing keeps it in place.

Hope this helps

We use alot of the plastic storage bins to keep things from sliding, that being said, some old carpet in a few would probably not hurt anything.

MY bays are roto molded plastic with corrugations at about 4 inches. Many item drop into the grooves so sliding is not an issue. Most bins have enough storage boxes that moving around is not an issue. Given the design of the bays I have fitted the curbside bays with closet decking to create a second level for small items.

A big "Thanks" to everyone for their response to my question! This is why I love this forum....so many people willing to help out newbies like me! You guys have given me plenty of ideas and I think I will be good to go when I load up the coach and hit the open road.

Now why on earth would anyone move their RV with the bay doors open????
