    tried one of the hanging wotsits but Sue hates it so we took it out and put it in one of the caravans, She need loads of hanger space it seems.

    Wardrobe in van is used same as wardrobes at home-clothes on hangers :xThumb:
    Foldable items,t-shirts,sweat shirts,jumpers are put in over-bed lockers.Some of which I've put a shelf in to make smaller 'stacks'.

    If you mean the clothes "jumped off" the hanging rail we have put a strip of stick-on velcro on the rail, put the hangers with the clothes in then put a strip of the opposite velcro on the first strip. This stops the hangers jumping off, when on site easy to peel the 2nd velcro off and remove / replace clothes as required, then just stick it back when moving off again. Works for us.
    Cheers, Dave(y)

    Similar to Janine and Puddleduck and I threaded two bits of elastic down the front from top to bottom(threaded through each shelf) to stop anything falling out. On the rail we put foam pipe lagging and this stops hangers from moving/dropping off.

    For hangers just get a pair of plumbers grips and squeeze the hook on the hanger so it is just wide enough to go over the hanging bar.

    We have a few clear plastic boxes, bought from The Range, which take our shoes and for socks I use a net bag bought from Go Outdoors. We also use a much bigger net bag to collect the laundry.

    If you search around you should be able to find boxes which fit the available space at the bottom of the wardrobe.

    But as already suggested chuck out a few things first! Light weight clothing also takes up less space, mic:xrofl:eeces instead of wooly jumpers, that sort of thing.

    Tip given to me by Carol for shoes ::: Large elastic band to hold each pair of shoes together to keep things organised.
