Need ideas for Nash 23D above sink kitchen storage

Just finished 9 days of boondocking and DW is looking for ideas to better utilize the cabinet storage space above the kitchen sink. The corner area is hard to get to even for me. I'm 6'-2". What have you done to make this space more easily accessible?

Short stool and put less used stuff there. Nothing else you can do imo.

We have the same trailer and have been living in it for a few months now, great trailer! We keep our general pans (iron skillet, fry pans, one bowl ect) in the cabinets directly over the sink. In the cabinets that come out from the wall we keep our coffee mess stuff (beans, grounds, filters, pour over). in that space you are referring to i like to keep the lids for our pots/pans. something we dont use all the time but is big enough for me to reach in and grab as they usually lean against the wall. the wifey has a harder time but she still manages haha.

We're thinking about "full-timing" in ours for a couple months. I am Air Force civil service in southern NM living in base housing. Just accepted a job with the AF in UT. If we live in our Nash in base famcamp for 2 months before moving, we'll save quite a bit.

How you holding up living in yours? How's the Nash holding up?

How you holding up living in yours? How's the Nash holding up?
It is definitely small, but I chose this model because we want the ability to travel easily and fit in more spaces than the bigger rigs can. it is definitely well made, i have taken it down some sketchy roads to reach some pretty awesome dispersed camping spots, with no ill effects except the odd item coming loose here or there and needing to be re-tighten or caulked. Honestly I expect that to happen just living in a camper so i find myself constantly lubing, sealing and tightening things to keep them tip-top. Dont consider that needed for this brand in particular, just good maintenance (you know the ounce of prevention thing haha).

We are now on the East coast, so some of that is limited (Military as well, Navy). Once you build the good habits required to live in a small space like that it gets way easier. We now have a 'dry camping kit' that we keep in storage until we want to move from our permanent spot, the coffee maker and other appliances go in there that we do not use while camping, so that saves a lot of space. I will say that taking the time to get your organization and storage right is KEY, we are constantly improving in that area.

Ultimately I like it and have not seen any ill effects or poor craftsmanship issues, for the most part it seems very over engineered and should last a long time with the proper care. Plus being able to hook up and leave at the drop of a hat is a pretty nice feature, not to mention the cost savings of living in a house

Completely agree with "well made". We took ours over some BLM roads near the Colorado River 30 miles northeast of Moab earlier this month. Oh my!! Good thing I didn't know what I was getting into because I wouldn't have done it. I figured if my father-in-law could manage towing a small 5'er, I could too. The only ill effects after that trip was a self-installed bathroom towel rack that came loose.

Yes, once we get a reporting date, my wife and I will have a long discussion about organizing and storage. Thanks for sharing your perspective!
