Hey all, I’d like to hear from the Fleet Front Dinette owners about how you pack your gear. I’m not sure if the larger models have the same cabinet space.
My use of the storage areas has evolved a bit as I have spent more time in the camper. I have a couple of cabinets that I‘m still scratching my head about, wondering if this space could be used more efficiently.
Under dinette bench driver’s side: Extension cord and adaptor, portable solar panel cord, table leg when not in use, tool bag
Under dinette bench passenger’s side: folding grill for fire, rain coats, hats, etc., that are rarely used, dirty clothes
Top storage space with flip up counter lid with mirror: sort of like my junk drawer at home – flashlights, playing cards, books, candles, Bose speaker, hammock, sunscreen, etc.
Floor level cabinet on passenger side: a bottle or two of attitude adjustment, newspaper fire starter, porta-potty (some trips), cleaning supplies, wet wipes, trash bags, etc.
Second level cabinet on passenger side: plates, bowls, kitchen towels, misc. kitchen stuff.
Third level cabinet on passenger side: the pantry – nuff said.
Cabinet under stove: pots, pans, coffee pot
Shallow cabinet under fridge(I have the large Isotherm, so it’s a deep space about 4 inches tall): haven’t quite figured out what to store here. Stakes for awning, a few tools, maybe water shoes ???
Propane compartment: shower head, collapsible gray water container.
Back of fridge: water filling hose, hatchet.
As my travels are usually over several weeks, I’m going to try the plastic storage drawers posted below. While the cabinets hold tons of stuff, I don’t like digging to find things that get pushed to the back. I think it will be nice to have a spot for large, but fragile groceries like bread, chips, and fruit. These drawers will be the only item other than our clothes duffels that we have to pick up and move each time we set up. I like the transparent sides so you can easily find what you are hunting for.
