Another hint just for the guys. I found that when the DW thought the 4 doors were for access to the transmission and not storage areas, I had a much easier time with organization and weight. I will caution you it's not pretty when she finds out where the transmission really is.

Found a neat solution for fishing rod holders or anything with a long handle. I installed a spring loaded broom and mop rack in the ceiling of my basement. The rods clip right in and are secure. The other ends rest on top of my heating duct. This works fine.

I have some containers we used in the previous trailer for 13 years and when the new trailer arrived we bought the right combination of rubbermaid container with equal area so they can be stacked and we store everything in the basement in them. The front compartment has different arrangement and odd equipment hangs on the wall. Everything is marked and tagged and looks neet.
But with the new unit we are always lost because stuff seam to move around, so a good organized system and to stay with the system helps a lot. Don't change plans to often as you will surely loose stuff for a whole.

This is what ours looks like, The pictures are from our Mountaineer. But I took everything out when we traded it in and Now the shelves and tables are in our 3400RL
The wire shelving is from Lowes and I used a Plastic shelving unit to make the tables. I used two screws on each to hold them in place.

Before and after photos.
