10-Minute Tech: If the Shoe Fits…

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

We take off our shoes at the door of our fifth-wheel to minimize tracked-in dirt and sand. Since we then had to find an easy-to-get-to place to store our shoes, I came up with this simple DIY installation. I removed the sink-base-cabinet end panel and installed a retractable wire basket that I purchased at IKEA for about $20. The removable basket included roller slides that easily mounted to the wooden shims I screwed to the sides of the cabinet. The installation still leaves sufficient space under the sink for storage. And, handily for us, the cabinet is across from the RV’s entry door.
