Bedside Tables/Nightstands in 5th Wheel?

OK, I love my TH but the slide out in the bedroom means that I don't have a nightstand to put my water on!! Anyone out there come up with a fix? I've tried to find really skinny nightstands (6" wide) but come up empty. Do I have to make 'em myself?

Help?

I've seen 5-r's with small shelves attached to either side of the bed where nightstands would've been had there been room. The shelves are just big enough to hold a small clock & maybe your eyeglasses & a small cup. Would that work?

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

We have the same issue. We have a king bed and no place for anything. We got
some wood wall shelfs at CW and put them on the wall. Holds a bottle water, my
paperback and glasses. Not fancy but it works for us. D

We have some baskets hooked on walls, removable, but handy, with shelving that can be removed.

I looked on CW's website but didn't see those shelves. Maybe I just need to make a trip down there. I've only got 6" on either side of the bed for any kind of nightstand, but the slideout is framed with 6" moulding around the cutout & I was thinking about maybe trying to find a foldable shelf or something.

I guess I could just go buy some good quality lumber and make a couple skinny nightstands. Thanks for all the input!

I had a Jayco Designer series 5er in 1999 and it had these nifty fold up and down shelves mounted to the side wall. They weren't large, perhaps 13 inches square, but they were sure nice, Try calling Jayco and see if they still sell the hardware.

I have sleep apnea and use a cpap. I need a night stand and electric plug. I just ordered a 2011 Carriage Cameo 32FWS. The bed is n/s so there is room for for nightstands on both sides.
This plan works GREAT for us!

Our old 2000 Jayco Eagle 266 FBS has a generous sized night stand on each side of the bed. In fact, they're large enough that our cat has plenty of room to curl up or stretch out for a nap on them and often does. There is also an electric outlet on each side too but you can't see them in the picture. The picture was taken with the slide-out in and that's the white thing you see on the left side.

I've noticed at recent RV shows that fewer trailers have night stands like this. They either have only one night stand and/or much smaller night stands. A few we've seen don't have any at all, which is inconvenient as almost everyone needs a place for their alarm clock, glasses, box of Kleenex, TV remote, etc.

We gladly passed on generous sized nightstands for a comfy king mattress that can actually accommodate two people.

We had a 2003 Arctic Fox with a night stand on each side. It also had a overhead cabinet. With our Cameo all we got is a shelf and if we had a king bed, not even get that. I really liked the storage in the Arctic Foxin the living area, but under was not very good.
