Pantry Sliding Racks

We have a 2012 Itasca Sunstar motorhome. The pantry is narrow and deep (roughly 6 1/2" by 22"). Wanting to locate some metal, sliding "shelves" or pantry organizers to make items in the rear more visible and accessible. Any retail or DIY suggestions appreciated.

Home Depot has a selection of pantry organizers listed. Knap & Vogt has the best selection <https://www.knapeandvogt.com/side-mount-pantry-roll-out-baskets?> That is what Thor put in my Hurricane and really heavy duty

Take a look in Amazon. I got some for storage space under our combo W/D.

Take a look at the following from the Knape & Vogt catalog. Pick the size you need.

Did you put this in your motor home or trailer? If so how did you latch it so it wouldn't slide out going around corners or(woops) going over curbs?

I didn't put these exact ones in, but something very similar. To keep them from sliding out while traveling, I have a gate latch like this installed at the top:

Most come with a foot lock. A small lever near the bottom basket releases the pin in the mounting foot. It is spring loaded to engage when the rack is pushed into the store position.

Thanks for the suggestions. The problem we have is the narrow pantry and the fact that the shelves are fixed--would be a bear to remove them. I ended up customizing "sliders" with heavy-duty cardboard fruit boxes. I cut, shaped, and taped them to fit the shelves, so we just lift the ends and slide them out. Not real professional, but they work.

My two cents: We ordered five custom shelves for our motorhome, a 2021 Winnebago Adventurer 29B. Ordering was easy and they were shipped within 6 weeks with all materials and instructions well packed. As you can see from the attached photo, they really allow us to maximize the space and usage of the skinny pantry area in our motorhome. Due to the cramped space, they were something of a challenge to install -- took all day in fact. But well worth it! My darling bride absolutely loves them (I'm her hero!). We consider them one of the best upgrades we could make to our motorhome.

This a picture of a picture showing what I built for a Georgie Boy we owned for 11 months. (best engineered aspect of the whole rig). Depending on one's skill-set, this is an option. Welded 1 inch angle iron mounted on four serious drawer slides with 1/4" drawer bottoms. DW still mourns the loss of the sliding pantry.
