OK, one more question on organization.

What do you do with your shoes? There are 7 of us, that is a lot of shoes. We each have our shower shoes plus our tennis. (Of course I bring about 4 personally, but no one else is allowed to bring that many.)

We used our flip flops for around camp and such and slipped them on and off to go in and out and then only put our other shoes on to go places. But then it rained and the flip flops were a mess and a couple of other shoes left outside. We had the canopy down, but it did not help. I eventually want to add an AAR.

Until then, what do we do with all of those shoes?

There were only 5 of us the last time we used the pop-up . We have a cabinet just inside the door. I put a rubber maid slide storage cabinet in the space and can close them in. We don't dare leave shoes out in AZ. you might find a snake or scorpion in them.

YIKES!

Never would have thought about that. I will definitely rearrange some things to bring them inside. We use the cabinet right inside the door to keep the things we need to set up camp. Once we set up, they are out of the way. I have a bin I can put in there. That would solve the prob of trying to step into the camper w/o shoes on w/o getting your barefeet dirty on the stepper door.

Thanks for the tip. I am sure there are various critters all over the country that you would not want to find in your shoes.

Can scorpions and snakes get into the add a room, even with the wheel skirt?

They can get in any place there is a space. I have heard of them coming under a door in the crack. Last weekend I found a scorpion in my folded up camping chair. Good thing I looked before I sat down in it. You never know what you might find.

I have found little brown Scorpions in FL & SC mountains. I worry more about those little fuzzy black spiders with little white dots on their boddies and the glowing green eyes. They like to find me! (I get really sick with one bite)

For our pop-up, I built a couple of "knock-down" boxes. I found the plans on a medevial page and thought it would work. I used mine to store the dirty clothes bags and the pet foods as well as other stuff. I sealled all surfaces of the wood (inside & out) with exterior poly & paint before assembling...

The one I built

A similar one based on the first one

BTW, shoes are evil things!! all you really need is a pair for cold/wet and a pair of flip flops!!! Other than that... go barefoot!

Boy, am I glad I live in scorpion free Pennsylvania.

Anyway, about your shoe storage problem. In my pop-up days, my wife constructed some shoe holders from cloth. They had a long tab attached to them that slid between the mattress and the floor of the bed. Velcro strips on the tab and bed floor secured it. The shoe holder part hung over the side with "pockets" to hold the shoes. This arrangement worked well for my family of four. The size of the shoe holder depends on the amount of space (width) available for it to "dangle" off the side of the bed. I wish I could put out a picture of what it looks like but my son now owns our pop-up (which is coming up on its 20th birthday this year) and it's about 350 miles away in Maryland. I hope my explanation was clear enough to give you an idea of what it looked like.

Frank, you were quite clear. I know exactly what you are talking about. That would work for my shoes that I am not currently wearing. It also gives me an idea for holding other things that you need handy. Thanks.

Lorna, sorry, but I have to disagree. Shoes are heaven sent. I can never have to many shoes. My prob is that I have sensitive feet and am having to spend more on shoes to get the comfort I need. That means that I can't buy as many. I don't want to bring a wooden box camping due to the weight, but I am glad you sent me the plans. That box would definitely solve my shoe prob at home. The box would sit nicely on our front porch or by our garage door into the house. I can't wait to have ds15 build it. LOL

As for critters, I am going to be much more aware now.

Thanks for all the great tips and advice. This group is awesome!!!
