I took a little bit of a turn today. The wall next to the toilet. I figured, since storage is always at a premium in any rv, that I could utilize this just a little better than making a hollow wall.

Enter thought process...... I decided to turn that wall into a shelving area. Granted, those shelves won't be deep or wide, but every little bit helps.

The shelves will be about 2 1/4" deep and only about 10" wide. However, they should be able to hold bottles of shampoo, bars of soap, maybe q-tips, or other items normally stored in the bath area.

There will be 6 of them, so it beats a hollow wall.

I used two bread boxes turned upside down on the tiny head above the door and the loo, with rv overhead springs, wife used them for everything that she needed, finding small spaces in an rv is a chalenge, I found other spaces behind the speakers in the cabin, under the couch, the pilot and copilot seats and the "shower/tub" for that space I had to cut tbe side and instal a door outside, that is where all the potable water conectors, hoses, preshure regulator, etc. recided.

As you go along you will come up with more nooks and cranies to use.

I use all the hollow spaces in my tires to store air.... counting the spare, I have 700 lbs. stored away in case a need arises. [emoticon]

It seems the OP works harder at finding absurd uses of wood than working toward completion. It gets more and more bizarre as the thread gets longer and longer in tooth. I'm still hooked but I can't for the life of me figure out why!

I love the thinking outside the box. As long as it finishes in the next ten years or so, I will be happy.

There are places all over an rv that can be utilized as storage. Unfortunately, we tend to look for "large" spaces, but enough of small spaces will make a "large" one collectively.

I didn't work at this at all. I was getting ready to measure for a piece of plywood for that wall, and it occurred to me that I could use that for storage.

Not going to be a huge amount, but every little bit helps.

Not planning on taking that long. I would like to use it long before then.

Toilet looks like it could use a bit of maintenance (and cleanup)...

On a serious note, a can of Krylon Fusion and this thing would look presentable again.


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.
