Where do you put your stuff?

As the designated Co-Pilot, I am in charge of the atlas & other maps, The Next Exit, the big fat campground directory & as Chief Photographer, my camera/s. I also need to be able to decipher TomTom's directions and figure out what the TPMS is squawking about if it starts beeping. AND the all important cell phone to keep up with iRV2.

While there isn't much I miss about the gasser, the proximity to the dash and the space under the dash, I do miss. Some. The space on the left side of the seat usually has a dog in it while the right side is pretty small:



From the seatbelt forward to the grab bar is 13" & from the side to the power cord for the seat is about 6". I know we could probably make something to fit in there that would work but just don't have the time for an engineering/construction project right now so wondered if someone had found an OTS (off the shelf) solution.

Janet is big on baskets. They seem to work well and are great for holding stuff. Easy to clean and organize stuff and you just pick up the entire basket and move it out of the way.

Same here. The Next Exit book and the big fat campground directory are in the overhead compartment in front of the passenger seat, but they haven't been taken down in several years now -- DW now uses her iPad mini for that information: it's faster and always up to date. When not using the iPad, it's on the side console arm rest, or on the dash. The remote controls for the iPod and the Garmin are in the cubby hole compartment in the passenger side console arm rest.

We have nothing between the seat and the narrow side console, we have far less room than what is shown in that picture (only a couple inches.)

That space is almost identical to , the spot in our coach; DW found a tote that drops right in. I'll post a picture later and brand name if I can find it.
Holds books and water bottles.
Anything in that spot has to be mobile for the seat to swivel.

Update! I found this: Magazine Basket on Amazon (surprise!).



It fits in the space and is sturdy enough to pick up by the handle and move easily.

When not in use, all atlas' & The Next Exit are in the magazine rack under my arm rest. Maggie (the GPS) sits on the dash where Dave can get to it easily, yet I can see it & reach it to make any adjustments or to search for something enroute. All the other stuff (cell phones, power cords/chargers for same, camera, remote for the back up camera...etc) all go in a small diaper tote (yeah I said diaper tote ) I found on Amazon. It's the perfect size to sit on our doghouse, all the compartments/pocket hold all the stuff just right, it's light & it's got a handle for easy toting. The hardest part was finding one that wasn't pink, blue or kid-themed.

My DW is pretty worthless when it comes to navigation. She usually is reading or sleeping. I did get her to look at the Exit book coming back from CA in March and that's about it. I pretty much have to depend on my memory or the GPS.

HAH! I'm with you Bucky. I'm staying though.

After a couple years of full timing, I just don't worry about where I'll end up at the end of the day. There are sooooo many RV parks that I just drive until 3:30 PM and start looking for a park. Pull off the road sometimes, get hooked up with the internet and search around my current location and bang. I'm parked and watching the news.

No need for tons of books, maps, and such like. To each his/her own though.

Doh! Sorry!
It's not the copiloting though....it's the baskets! I think purses may have even been mentioned!

We do the same but I added "velcro" under it so it stays put on the engine compartment !
