Trailer Life tips
Two tips from Trailer Life Magazine
Extra shelf space (from Trailer Life).
We have a wardrobe and drawer on each side of our bed, but no night stand space. Saw a tip in
Trailer Life to cut off a piece of 12' pine shelving and lay it across the top of the open
drawer.... When you don't need the shelf, it stows in the bottom of the closet. This also works in
the kitchen, living room and anywhere else that you have a drawer and need more shelf (or counter)
space. We got some stain to match the trim and polyurtherine to finish the boards for esthetic
SCEEN for floor vents (from Trailer Life).
Murphy's Law says that if you drop a small object, it WILL go into the floor vent for the central
heating system. We got a couple of feet of fiberglass window screen fabric and put a piece behind
each of the floor vents..... Catches the dropped stuff, and the dirt and leaves that get tracked in
to be vacuumed up easily. We removed the vents, laid the screen fabric down, pressed the vents back
in and trimmed the excess screening.
