Storage Spaces for Tiny Living
Where do we keep our stuff in the Airstream .. books, magazines, clothes, spices, plants, cleaners, etc? We sold the house and along with it a ton of furniture, extra gadgets and items but we still have everything we need to live comfortably and well. So let’s see where things are.
CB2 shelf with a small succulent
Even though we have a moving house, we like to have some of the comforts of the brick and mortar lifestyle and having a few plants around makes a huge difference. We have to move this plant when we travel but since it’s small and light that’s no problem.
Books shelf and hanging air plant
Other than the succulent, we have several air plants which are lightweight, travel well and can be wrapped with wire for hanging. Above we added a bookshelf to the end of one of our bulkheads (fancy name for suspended, hanging cabinets). This bulkhead and book shelf sit above one of our living room windows.
CB2 file hanger and CB2 shelf on the bedroom wall
To get the most out of our living area we started using wall space. In the bedroom, we have a white file hanger which holds books, magazines, reading glasses and another air plant. The red shelf holds the alarm clock.
Another CB2 item – on the living room wall
Now onto food:
Bulk food stored in BPA free plastic containers from Ikea
Pet food, spices, snacks
In the kitchen area, we removed the existing microwave and added a hinged panel for more storage. The microwave went to another RVer.

Cleaning supplies under the sink
One of 2 identical size clothes closets – we use the roll and tuck system 🙂
More storage spots
Trash and Luna’s litter box
We also have storage space under the twin bed – that’s where we store extra linens and a small suitcase. Under the couch we have 2 batteries, the solar inverter, charge controller and a bin of extra small bags. On the outside of the Airstream is a small compartment door leading to a section underneath the bed. The water heater is here along with our extra shoes. Of course we also keep tons of stuff in the bed of the truck under the camper shell. Along with the 150 gallon veggie oil tank, we have extra supplies, camping gear, paddling jackets/paddles, tools, extra veggie oil filters, 3 five gallon water tanks, a bike pump and a bit more. All in all I’d say we have everything we need and want. Bon voyage:)
