Sorting out the shambles in the Wardrobe

I don’t know about you but when I’m away Motorhoming but I largely wear T shirts, Jeans and Shorts etc.  Stuff you’d stick in a drawer. The Dethleffs come with well set up wardrobes but not a lot of drawers in the bed room area for clothes.

So I set out to change our wardrobe into something that would be useful for clothes like drawers.

The first option we used lasted about 18 months which was a hanging basket type of arrangement which was suspended from the rail. It had cloth covered cardboard boxes which slid in and out like drawers. This worked quite well for about 8 months when it just collapsed to a point where it was almost unusable.

I set out a few weeks ago to sort this out with some shelving bits which I got from Bunnings.

The Steel supports screw in first using glue and short screws(also glued) and then the shelf brackets clip in with plastic locks which prevent the shelf or brackets from coming out while you’re driving.

I thought that I would possibly have to bungy cord the shelves in while we were moving but so far, I haven’t even had to do that. It works a treat. The whole things for these shelves cost about $240.00 so it wasn’t insignificant but the problem seems to have gone away 🙂

  1. We have a large wire basket at the bottom (facing sideways) and then 5 half baskets that lock into each other facing sideways. I get the large one, as women always do and 2 halfsize. that way you can still hang 2 jackets each. It look like and ‘L’ shape facing into the wardrobe. From Plastic box, I think less than $100 for the lot.
