Quick Tips: RV Hobby Helper

June 20, 2012
Filed under Quick Tips

I was using one of my motorhome’s basement rollout bays to store my hobby supplies, but I also had to carry a folding table to use as a work area. I came up with an idea to attach a work area to the rollout tray and thus eliminate the need for a table. I went to a local hardware store and purchased one shelf standard, two shelf brackets and a shelf the size that I needed. Cost was less than $25.

I cut 4 inches off each end of the shelf standard and mounted the pieces to the face of the tray. I then used scrap wood and attached it to the bottom of the shelf, which keeps the shelf from sliding on the brackets. The shelf and brackets stow in the tray when not in use.
