Hi, welcome to IRV2. Glad you joined us. As for storage, plastic tubs from WalMart work great to organize things. Now if someone would just come and organize mine, it would be great. LOL Enjoy and safe travels.

You are not alone, we have a trunk load of stuff we really did not need. From my short experience, my advice is to decide how you are going to live in the RV, how often you will really use an item and put them where they are easiest to get to by use. I have modified my cabinets’ arrangements several times. My biggest suggestion is if you use it at home you will want it in the RV. Don’t over load with “what ifs”. I have not found the need for so many plastic containers as other have. In side the RV, I have one for small medical emergencies, one for dog emergencies; any others are what I would normally use at home. With the non skid shelf liner in the cabinets and good drawer space my plastic are limited. One hint, you can buy a non skid pad for a rug that can be cut to fit all the cabinets sizes, this will save you $’s on buying the shelf size and I use small amount of double sticky tap to keep it in place. 5'er outside storage is different than Class A's so arranging for convenience would be top priority.


Happy traveling and enjoy.
