Pantry

Hello. We have a 3791 RD and the pantry is big but I wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions to help utilize the space better. I did buy some of the wire shelves and put them in but they are not very tall it is hard to fit items under the shelves. We have talked about putting in pull out drawers but still looking for ideas to make the space two even shelves.
If anyone has any ideas or pictures I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Went to HD and bought some white metal racks that fit our pantry to help divide the space out.

We purchased "Stackable Wire Shelves" for our unit. They have about 6' clearance beneath them. We stacked em 2 high over our entertainment center, utilized that overhead storage so much better too.

Thank you. The ones we have are only about 3 or 4 inches. Not tall enough. 6 inches would be much better. I will see what I can find like that.

We bought ours at Menards. Take a look online at their site, they should have them listed, possibly free shipping too. I couldn't find the "closet maid" brand that would work for us.

I don’t think pull outs are the answer. The storage loss because the slide outs need to be 1” narrower than the opening would outweigh the convenience.

I added two more wood shelves & my wife bought some fabric storage containers 10"x10" square for the top shelf which is 16" tall all the rest of the shelves are 8" apart & she has some red plastic bins for canned goods. I think she got some from dollar tree. & some at Lowes.

We have the same unit. I bought all of my storage racks on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_n...rage+Solutions


Also used them in the fridge.

Check out a 2015 model 3790 or 3791 as the pantry came with pull out drawers... Same for storage areas under the Theatre seating as well... Also have the hamper in the bedroom & a much larger sink in the island in the kitchen... Quite a few subtle changes inside that we didn't like in the newer models. The one thing I do like better is the pull out storage at the rear.... But alas after weighing out the loss's inside to the gain outside we decided the inside advantages far exceeded the outside advantages...

I had a similar problem with my HC a worthless coat closet and no pantry. I stood 1x12 s up on the sides to fit width wise. Then made shelves to fit the opening I had left. I stained them to match. Held then I place and put come wood screws to hold then in place. Not a single screw went in the camper and it is secure.

We did full extinction slides that just fit between the door frame and they work great and hold a lot of food and other stuff!

Might be hard to describe. We use the half height collapsible canvas storage containers. We stack them with heavier items in the bottom one like canned goods and light stuff in the one stacked on top. Plus you can pull out the entire container without having to dig through stuff. Hope you can make sense of that descprition.

We have a 2016 3790RD. In the pantry my wife found small wooden trays at IKEA that are very flexible. They are wide enough for seasonings and small cans or two facing each other will hold larger cans. We use toots without tops for bread, cereal, coffee, etc. We also use wire shelves from HD. Under the side counter to the right of the stove we put sliding drawers for dinner ware and silverware. Some trial and error but with good measurements it all comes together. Good luck and enjoy.
