"Are we married to the same person? Just yesterday I removed all of the rocks from the basement storage and put them on the dining room table in the house. She said "what are all of these dirty rocks doing on my table "? I said these were in the coach basement storage bins from the rocks you picked up along the way". She then said "pretty aren't they". I said "Yes Dear"."

So.. quick funny story on storage bins..

My buddy bought his first ever motorhome a few months back. 36 ft. All proud as a peacock, he shows me the unit. On all the cabinets and storage bins I notice round white marking dots with numbers. I'm looking a little puzzled and asked.. what up?
He shows me his sheet that lists everything in the motorhome and the corresponding number of the bin it is in. OMG!

What's with wives and rocks? Mine collects rock too, including when we did long road trips riding two-up on our motorcycle. I like the idea of the dedicated bin as they are currently scattered about the coach including the many recently washed rocks drying on the kitchen counter.

Being from Texas I keep two storage compartments loaded with mesquite and pecan wood for the grill and the camp fire at night. A camp fire is a gotta have. I use my old Weber grill and not the gas. Btw, you can really pack the storage in. Several compartments are for food storage including water. Dunno why I pack the water though, but the kids like it. And so far no problems with dust, vamits or bugs. The many inside cabinets are also useful and not full. We would stay it in FT but my son and grand kids (living with me) are still in school. Our fire pit also fits in one very easily, of the storage compartments. I still have some compartments that could use and hold more items. Just give me time, lol. /Mikey

Now back to the OP. Our storage bins are mostly full and sorted. Hiking backpacks and assorted gear in one, swimming gear in another, work tools etc etc. The inside areas are all hers. I get one Walmart bag to put my clothing in and she gets the closets to fill.....or at least it seems that way to me.

Wait till I tell DH. He pretty much lets me have all the rocks I want, but I must load them myself. I am seriously strong but it is still a challenge sometime.
All this talk of rocks, I just keep hearing a voice from my childhood "what do you think would happen if everyone that came here took home some rocks?!" (also repeated with shells, flowers, etc...). Would have been nice to know you all back then, as I would have had an answer for him!

All ours are pretty full. We have trouble finding places to carry everything we want. Didn't have that problem with our Grand Junction 40' 5er, even carrying everything we wanted there were still empty drawers and cabinets in that 5er. Both that 5er and our MH are under GVWR. It's just that a MH has so much less storage space, but we're getting used to it now.
