One of the challenges of small camping is adequate storage space. I KNOW that we travel with too much stuff, but we are often traveling thru a couple of seasons, so we do require more things than if we were just going out for a week or two.
While tinkering in the Fireball one day, John found untapped storage space. If you have a T@DA, the cupboard below your refrigerator probably looks like this.Did you know that below the bottom shelf is an empty space? To John, it looked like the ideal spot for storage for our hiking boots, which usually reside in the back of the truck. So, he removed the lower panel, cut an arched opening, sanded a bit, reinstalled, and put a small piece of carpet on the floor to insulate a bit, and also to catch any moisture that may accumulate. Voila!Perfect for a couple of pairs of boots or whatever.
Also, I love the half-sized flexible cutting boards that are available. These are non-skid, and washable. They come in four-packs. Bought mine at Bed, Bath & Beyond. With a small bungee and a couple of eye hooks, they are always handy, yet out of the way. We slide two boxes (a beer carton and a wine box) into this cupboard where they fit snugly and hold all of our foodstuffs.
