pass Thru Organization

How do y'all organize your pass thru? We have a Hill Country 33bd and need to organize our hoses, electric, sewer stuff, and equalizer, etc. We like the sliding trays but putting one of those in would keep us from storing our pop up canopy in the pass thru ( unless we got the long tray, I guess. ) Anyway, just looking at ideas. Appreciate any ideas you might have.

Personally I donít like the sliding trays. Thereís actually less storage with them. Had one in old camper. Now I use storage tubs that are small enough to fit in the door and big enough to hold my stuff. Use clear ones so itís a quick look at whatís in them.

Me too Catman


Got five or six from IKEA, assorted sizes, excellent price, stackable, clip on lids.


Got all my sewer stuff, including the 'sewer solution' hose system, clear 90, gloves and plastic drain cap wrench in a largish flat one, my water filter, pressure gauge and potable water hose in another, then TV cable, electrical accessories etc, basic hand tools and a hose and nozzle in three others.


They are easy to move around as no one bin is too big, they take up minimal space whilst keeping everything in it's place.


I have't but you could label them so nothing gets mislaid or forgotten.

I also use storage bins. Went to Walmart and got what I needed. All the sewer items are in a black tote. Also you can stack them to help with storage space.

Though it looks terrible, I do have a system. Everything on the left is regular hook ups, cords, hoses (white, green for washing, and a extra for flushing), with room along the back for one WD hitch bar. Also 30 amp extension, cable connections, and various wye's, caps, nozzles, and connectors. The right side is campsite stuff, like BBQ and charcoal, bug spray, wheel chocks, awning crank, a few quick tools in the corner, and the other hitch bar and sway bar along the wall. In between, a real crawl to get to, are the jack, the wheel jack up thing, extension sewage hose , other seldom needed things. Primary sewage hose in the bumper.

I use clear flat bins similar to Biggles description. Sewer, water, electrical, misc.

I also doubled my pass thru space by moving the back wall further to the rear under the bed to be even with the water heater enclosure. (2013 ST25RB)

Create your own sliding tray but use a triple depth.. keep it started one section into the pass through and to one side and make it narrow enough so your long items like a canopy or rolled up out door carpet able to slide down the side of it. . This allows you to store items in front that always come out in front and then pull your tray out for other items. I keep my bbq and tool box on the tray which sits deep in and pulls out when required. Everything else like hoses and blocks in front are used while camping

I built a rack on the back for the sewer hoses. I got the biggest totes that would fit through the openings one for electrical one for water hoses I have a smaller one for tools and spare parts and my grill sits on top of it and that leaves about a foot for other things. Mine is a bumper pull so I don’t have all the extra storage.

That's a smart mod, made some easy access space under the bed like you did. Might have to take a little look into that, since i have the same model trailer... like that.

Equipment organization

I hung my setup equipment just inside the hatch as the photos show. Other, non-essential stuff I put in clear plastic tubs on the floor, and which could be stacked if necessary.

Kim & Brent,

That's awesome use of space. I did something similar, I built two matching drawers to fit that void, accessed from the bedroom, they pull out toward the sides of the trailer and are about 16" wide 24" long and 9" deep.

Using 1/8" door skin I made vertical dividers that each takes a pair of footwear. His and hers, I never have to rummage for the matching shoe.....yay!
