I am looking for ideas to storage clothes when travelling instead of taking suitcases. Also looking to install a roof top air conditioner.

Use big clear plastic bags... the type blankets sometimes come in. That way you can see what you are looking for through the side and reach in and grab it.

Don't take too much.. there are shops all over Oz if you need.

Hi Joanne

I have recently had a aircon installed on my jayco flamingo it is the Dometic b2200. I have only used it a few times on heat and it works great. The fan can be a little noisy if turned up high but is silent on low fan speed and this speed is enough to keep the van warm.Hope this is of some help.

We use plastic boxes with well-fitting lids and that fit into the space available. Keeps clothes dry and dust free. But dont take too many clothes.

Cheers,

Hi Joanne,
I would presume your Eagle has a stand up robe, What size the base is I don't know, but what we did with our 87 Swan was to remove the standup cupboard and use clear lidded containers, they come in many different sizes.
When traveling, they sit along where the cupboard would lay.

The advantage is you can see which box has your gear in it.
This works well for us as a family of 5.
Jackets and heavy clothing is stored under the seats.
Hope this helps.

Our brilliant solution is to keep all clothes in blue Woolworths cool bags (the ones with the zipps you put groceries in) - there cheap.
They stack nicely on all the seats in the eagle when traveling or can simply be thrown in as we're loading up. they don't do any damage.

Thank you to everyone for your suggestions. I forgot to mention there is only 2 of us (children left home) & we were trying to think of ways to utilize the spare end eg. taking off the mattress & making storage cubes to put shallow plastic storage containers in that can be left there when the van is wound down. Has anyone seen this done?

Joanne,
Thats what we did when the kids were'nt travelling with us in our jayco dove except we took the cheap temporary option and cut down cardboard boxes. We had a blanket covering them. It worked well and was simple and cheap.
Cheers.
