Closet space in TT

I was out looking at travel trailers today. I saw a Jayco 28rls and 28rks. There is no room to hang shirts etc or drawers. Where does everyone put their clothes especially when you stay in a trailer for extended periods of time? The closet on each side of the bed looked like 10" wide. Any suggestions?

It's crazy how little cabinet space they give you in travel trailers, isn't it?! We are living in our Cougar 28RLS for a year, and I was really concerned about this. But it hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be. We each use the hanging closet on our respective sides of the bed and they fit a little more than you'd think they would if you pack them in tight. We then fold our jeans and pants and put them in the overhead compartments over the bed, and have large plastic storage containers in our underbed storage compartment for other shirts, pajamas, etc. I actually find that if you roll t-shirts and even dresses up like a tube, it keeps them from getting fold lines and relatively free of wrinkles, and you can pack a lot in that way, too. We also have little shoe box sized plastic storage bins for socks and underwear, which helps keep things organized. Hope this helps at all and good luck shopping!

Gotta think outside the box when you're putting things away inside the box.

We have a jayco 298 RLDS which is similar to your RLS just moved around a little. The 2nd slidout is only a pantry/wardrobe and what solved the issue for us but that doesnt help you directly. I only mention our set up to give you some ideas. Could you put a short poles or long hooks in the bedroom or hallway? It would be open and not enclosed unless you hung a garment bag or soft hanging closet - yes they make them. I know its not the optimal solution but strong hooks can certainly help and hanging organizers come in a million sizes amd configurations.

Just a thought. Post a pic when you have a solution so it helps others in search of the same thing. Good luck.

Worst case...cloths get folded and put in big tupperwear under the bed. Ive done that too - it works.

I am on mobile and the app won't let me edit. I thought your jayflight had the same hallway as mine but after looking it up I'm not sure it does. Thats the only reason i chimed in was to suggest using the hallway as a potential place to hang cloths. My apology if it's not completly relevant to the 28rls.

Cheaper RVs tend to have fewer and smaller closets and drawers. Cabinets, closets and drawers cost money to build and install. In smaller trailers, they also take up wall space which means fewer windows.

Just keep looking, there are models with closets, cabinets and drawers.
