2016 Eagle Cap 1165

In our Eagle Cap 1165, there’s a tall wardrobe closet just inside the door, and very little pantry room.  For this mod we converted the wardrobe closet into a pantry.

Empty Pantry That Needed Storage Solution

We bought an Elfa wire rack shelving unit from the Container Store. Only one wall was sturdy enough to attach the wire rack frame.

Then I put together the frame per the instructions.  Once completed, I set the frame inside the cabinet and screwed it to the wall with two screws in the pre-drilled holes.

Container Store Racks In Pantry

We tested the unit in late February on a snow ski trip to Colorado.  It worked out perfectly.  Now we have a proper pantry in our camper.

It took me about 30-minutes to complete this modification.  It cost me less than $200.  The Elfa unit was 30-percent off at the Container Store.   In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is easy since I had all tools needed for the installation.
