There is never enough Motorhome Storage solutions when traveling with a family of seven so any where we can add more cupboards to we will! David is clever – he can put his hands to anything and find a solution. Here is a “Spilling Batten” technique that he has used to create over head cupboard space at the front of “Rose The Lifestyle Challenge Bus”
Here is Part 1 of Motorhome Storage Solutions using the “Spilling Batten” techniques!
Each and every cupboard in the Motorhome is going to be packed tight! It will be packed with only items that we must use. The boys are going to have a self space each in the big wardrobe. Then in the Bunk Beds we will be creating more Motorhome Storage with nets added to the wall so that they can have books (School Books) in the Motorhome. Under the Bunk Bed is where the batteries are kept – yet down the other end will be a spot for a few toys….(ops I meant items that we need!)
More Motorhome Storage Space
The Lounges have been re-built to hold items under nearth. David has made the Lounges so that they will have “Doors” at the front of the bottom of them. Its not enough to hold a lot of big items but will be enough Motorhome Storage to have smaller items stored. Under the Big Queen size Bed at the back of the Bus is another Storage Box. David spilit the base of the Bed into sections that the front of the bed base will have doors that open up for a spot to store items. I think in that space will be clothes that we store for the next season.
Shoe Storage Space
Near the door at the front of the bus David is building a cupboard that will hold shoes. It is going to be a skinny cupboard but will have shelfs so that we can find our shoes easily. Near the Drivers window (next to the New Bus Seat) David is also making a cupboard that can hold his Books and a spot for drinks. He likes books that share the best camping spots in Australia and also Camping Magazine so that will be a handy Motorhomes Storage Solution.

The Spilling Batten Technique is Boat Building Technique that David used many times to build boats/caravans. He has made the “Spilling Tool” to create the front cupboard. It saved a lot of time because once it was finished the front slid in easily. There are four parts to the vlog series so I will be updating more on Motorhome Storage as soon as I have the vlogs ready! If you have any questions on the Spilling Batten techniques let us know and David can answer them here at New Life on the Road 🙂
