Very nice Job. It’s a tough space to organize for sure.  We tend to carry different items with the season’s. We will  get it figured out one day.

Your closet upgrade is fantastic!  I'm thinking it's begging for a nice secure wine rack! Ha!

Heck -- a few bungie cords over the top of the bottles...  Might work?

We do not bring but a few clothes that need to hang.  We felt like we were losing so much storage area. I built shelves to fill the lower area of the closet. That curve is a bugger to work with. Shelves have a 4" lip in the front to help hold the gear.  They are not perfect but work 

Looks like a potential future project. Could you please share some additional information on the materials, caulk and construction process? Also what you would do different if you had known.

Thanks.

Are they free standing other that the screws into the floor? You might consider adding a bead of adhesive along each of the curves to give it more strength,

Please post some pics of the shelves with stuff on them. If you added stretchy cargo netting, you could fill them up and not risk having stuff tumble out, for example paper towels or boots.

Thanks for posting.

Building Process: First I created a template of the floor with a piece of poster paper. I used 5/8 inch plywood to then produce a base piece. I then made two side pieces to go against the two straight walls (shelving board)...(first shelf is 12 1/2 inches tall from the base) They were attached to the base with an additional  strip of  wood.   Nothing is screwed to the camper...I used a strip of window insulation around the edge of the curved surface to eliminate any rubbing against the fiberglass. I then used a piece of cardboard to create a template for the first shelf. I repeated the process with shelf 2. After completing the unit i unscrewed all parts, removed from closet and painted with gloss white paint.  Then re-assembled the entire shelf.   The post in the middle of each shelf is placed toward the back of the middle of the shelf for additional support.

so if i'm understaning, it is held in place by the pressure against the two flat walls with some "springy recoil" from the insulation strips along the back sides? ingenious!

That looks pretty useful! 

For additional ideas, there's a place called Katy's Casita Closets that makes the rounds at fiberglass rallies, installing closet inserts.

And here's a link to the Oliver Facebook group, where a lady used Elfa baskets in her closet. These look interesting, too.

@rich.dev I guess you need to be a member of that Facebook group to view the post. She says:

Hull #1216 “Ollie Belle”

I just completed the Elfa closet project and wanted to share because I’m relieved to be done with it LOL! I went with the X-Narrow because I tried the Narrow and it gave me less room for hanging coats. I’m a coat/sweatshirt hoarder so I wanted to split the space. If you go with the X-Narrow, you have 10” +/- wide of a container and 10” +/- wide of hanging space or “other” space. If you decide on Elfa, you have a handful of configurations for drawer combinations. You’ll absolutely want a 3-runner drawer in the bottom for long term storage because you can’t pull it out, you have to remove drawers above to get to the items, no biggie. I duct taped a piece of styrofoam to create a “shim” at the bottom so it’ll stay in place. I also cut a pool noodle and added it to the clothes rod just for a “shim”. The telescopic ladder is beside it. You also have space for an additional container below the clothes if needed but there’s lots you can do with the space split in half. Others have the Narrow collection which is 14” wide.”
