Purchased a new Cruiser this week. Looking for pictures and/or ideas on how you have organized your basement.

I was thinking about some shelves in the front door, but what have you tried and like or would like to try?

Will be looking to store camp chairs, dutch over, hose and cords, hotdog sticks, campfire pots and pans, etc. I might even put my generator in there pending on the ideas.

I think that I am going to build some shelves inside of the front compartment, just on the left hand side. Then install some hooks to hang my extension cords by the battery on the right.

Larry, On my 2007 30SK, (not positive on the later models) you need to maintain some access to what's behind the wall towards the back of the storage area. The electrical converter is there as well as the furnace ducts etc. Just a thought. I use plastic bins and also carpeted the whole area to help keep things from moving around when traveling.

We use stackable plactic bins from Wal-mart. They have wheels for easy roll out and the wheels on the top bin fit into a grove on the bottom bin so that they don't move around. We also store our two honda 2000 generators in the front compartment.

Take a look at page 5 of this thread and look at "outside storage compartment for small items". It looks like your front storage area is about the same as mine. I installed two sliding drawers with many small areas sectioned off. I would not give up those drawers for anything. They take very little room away from the normal big items I store there (air compressor, jack, etc). If this is your first camper you will soon find that you have many small items that you have to have and this is the perfect place to store them. I am a klutz wood worker but still got 'er done

Yes! Those drawers are on the top of my list already. Once the weather warms up enough to get back out there, I will be adding these. My last couple of 5th wheels have suffered from outside storage envy. With the Cruiser, I will be able to really take advantage of the space without having to pack every open corner just to get the basics to fit.

I considered buying one of thse drawers that is on runners that you could pull out from either door in the front but when I got to looking at them I wasn't happy with that whole idea. If you have any plumbing or vents hanging down the stuff in your slide out drawer has to be lower than that or the drawer becomes just a storage bin. I used 3/8 plywood and on the awnig side compartment built a storage unit that holds my chairs wood blocks and several odds and ends. This works much better than yhe drawer would of for me still working on other side.
