Packing Cubes

Recommended Posts

Hi all...

Checking in to see if anybody uses packing cubes to help organize their Ollie. If so, do you like them?

 

As an experiment I purchased 1 medium-sized packing cube from Amazon.com to see how much it could easily hold. The cube I got, fully packed, measures 14"x 9.5" with a 4" depth. Most medium cubes I found on Amazon were 3" deep so clothing amount could vary. I packed firmly but not so tight to have a wrinkled mess and found the cube held the following:

 

4 - Men's x-large T-shirts (I tried rolling them but found folding allowed me 1 more shirt)

3 - lightweight socks

1 - heavyweight sock

4 - boxer underwear

1 - nylon sport short

 

Hopefully the pack will fit nicely into an upper cabinet.

Kathy

I camp with five of these cubes.  Three large, one medium, one small.  Tshirts in one, shorts in one, underwear, socks, medicine, etc.  When I need something, I don't have to rummage through different items to find what I need.  All the cubes will fit in an overhead compartment.

This is great news! I didn't think the large ones would fit in the upper compartments. Thx for letting me know!

In the overhead of the Oliver or your Airstream?  Mike

Good point Mike.  The AS may have larger overheads  but the rear overhead in the Ollie should accommodate several packed cubes.

Why not use the closet? 2 shelves and a pole to hang a bunch of stuff. Always been plenty of space to carry whatever clothes we need.

Simply exploring packing ideas. Our Ollie won't be picked up until July. I have a feeling our closet space may be filled with other items but hope I will be able to hang some of my clothes.

Kathy, I love packing cubes. In the Ollie, and other travels.

Big cubes fit in the bottom of the closet, small and medium in a Ikea hanging rack, in the rounded corner of the closet . Or, in a bin beneath the bed.

I pack as you do. A week or so in a cube . Color coded for hot and cold weather.

On a cold day, socks, long sleeve shirts, underwear, thermal, etc, are in a blue cube. No digging around for several cubes. Warm weather, another red cube.

Love them

When we travel, I do the same. Even though it takes some time after laundry, I reorganize and pack the cubes on long trips. Minute to find what we need. One cube, one zipper.

I have several cubes in colors for each of us.

Going to town clothes and jackets, hang in the closet.

We only have one shelf in the closet... Early model. that contains first aid, tp, bug repellant, a folded sweatshirt for each of us.

You'll find what works best for you. Everyone is different.

Kathy, it's just one of their inexpensive shoe rack hanging racks. Probably skubb. Ties in, rather than having to remove the rod for loops .

7 or 8 years old now. Holds skubb boxes in unused slots.

Clever ideas abound on the forum! I joined Amazon Prime two days ago and my first free delivery order was a set of these cubes.
