Tips for Adding Storage Space to Your Fifth-Wheel Trailer
If you’re planning a road trip, or you’re turning your fifth-wheel trailer into your permanent home, you will need ample storage space to house all of your belongings and supplies. The following are some tips for adding storage space to your fifth wheel so you can get everything you need for your travels.
Add A Storage Platform
You can install a ladder, bicycles, camping chairs, or any other outdoor accessories. Securely store them in a large storage chest or chains and locks.
Make the Most of Your Basement Storage
Fifth-wheel trailers have excellent storage space underneath. The basement storage area can hold all the time, such as seasonal clothing, decorations, and supplies. Whatever you decide to store in the fifth wheel base, make sure to organize it to make the most of the space.
Use Storage Containers
Plastic storage containers-also known as storage tubs and totes-are perfect for organizing and storing items in the basement storage of your fifth wheel. These containers will protect your belongings from water and dust and are easily stackable so you can store them in an organized manner. Plastic containers will also make it easier for you to find what you’re looking for in the basement storage area since you will not have to rummage through a bunch of loosely-packed items.
Build A Closet in Your Truck
Since fifth-wheel trailers require a pickup truck to be towed, make the most of the extra space on the back of your truck by adding cabinets, drawers, or a closet to hang your clothes. If you’re looking for a great place to stay, this is the place for you.
Use the Space Under Your Beds
Whether you have drawers under your beds, or the beds lift up providing access to large empty spaces, the space under your beds should not be forgotten. Since these storage areas are easy to access, consider using totes or cardboard boxes. Some items you can store under your beds include:
- Canned goods and non-perishable foods, and,
- Other regular-use supplies.
Add A Small Chest Freezer
If you are looking for a great place to eat, this is the place for you. A small chest freezer can help store more food, especially meat, so you will not have to worry about making stops to the grocery store on your travels. There are also portable chest freezers that can be stored outside of your fifth wheel if you want to save space indoors.
Create A Closet in the Bunkbed Space
For those traveling solo or with a partner, consider transforming the bunk bed space into a closet storage space. The bedroom has a double bed, a double bed, a sofa bed and a fold-away bed. .
Once you’ve made the most of it, you’ll be able to get the most out of it. After you’re clear to go, you can enjoy your travels with your spacious fifth-wheel trailer.
