    Our Auto-Trial Scout came without any shelves in bathroom cabinets, rendering them useless as everything falls out when you open the doors.
    Any non sarky ideas welcome

    Fit some shelves :Rofl1: Sorry couldn't resist it..
    Can you not make some out of plywood or plastic. I used some offcuts of white fascia board for some extra shelves in our cupboards.

    Sorry, Dawn... can only think if you know someone good at DIY to make lightweight shelves with a small lip on the front. In my last van I had a useless glass cabinet which was very tall and no shelves, so I got a joiner to make a shelf half way up with a small lip on the front.. It was good for drinking glasses then.

    I bought perspex off ebay. Cut it, sanded the edges and glued it.
    Used masking tape to make sure the glue didn't get on the visible bits.

    Depending on the size of your cupboard, Betterware do a product called Add-A-Shelf which we have used. Wilkinsons used to do a similar product with folding legs which was only a couple of pounds (I don't know if they still stock them).

    Having got shelves in place, small plastic baskets (various sizes from different suppliers) are useful to stop small items falling about.

    Ralph used some oak upvc facia board for ours. He got some tiny little plastic brackets. So we have a shelf in each over head cupboard now. In the wardrobe in the bathroom he put 2 extra shelfs , with bigger brackets one above each existing one. Great for folded clothes , when were away longer than a weekend :thumb:
