Hi all,

Just wondering if any of you fellow travellers have ideas (preferably with pictures if possible) on how best to pack a 4WD Campertrailer. I'm sure you'll all agree that after a long day on the road, the one thing you need to get your hands on is almost always tucked away in the very far corner. Luckily I've a 10yo son who is capable of squeezing into tight places but for me it's almost an aerobic lesson on occasions!

Our campertrailer is very basic with a kitchenette at the rear door & also opens from the top which is fine for access if you're not horizontally challenged like my wife & I.
I'm after something to make access easier before you set up for the night.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Hi there.
When we had a soft floor camper trailer and travelled with 2 kids space was a premium!
To solve the storage situation I made a wooden rail system that allowed the plastic milk crates to slide along the bottom of the trailer and used a broome stick handle with a hook on the end to move the crates back and forth!
It worked well as the crates being open you could easily identify what it was you were looking for!
They also doubled up as seats and tables as you can easily stack them!
We carried about 8 of them.

Wife and I travel with a camper trailer and we have a "day bag" which carries tea/coffee break material, and also change of lightweight clothing, jocks and a few small bits and pieces. The only time we need to go "digging" is at the end of the day. This may prove helpful.
Happy travels.
