Just got our Tracker MH and now have to kit it out with kitchen gear etc.

Looking for any hints, tips and list of essential items.

Do you use China or melamine type dinnerware?

Any other tips for newbies welcome.

TIA.

I use white arcoroc dinnerware, very happy with it!  Enjoy your new MH -_-

Thanks Sue. Is that any lighter than other China crockery, or just more durable?

Both and I use it daily and have not had any breakages in a year.  Melamine was not an option for me because I use a microwave regularly -_-

No kitchen drawers in my Delaware

Attached a stainless steel kitchen roll holder to the wall, making access to the gladwrap, foil and paper towels a breeze.  The paper towels can be moved to the right so the cooktop lifts up with ease.  You'll be pleased to know that that's it for now.

That looks great. I can't quite see but what is the depth of unit? Trying to envisage how much it sticks out..

Sue

The unit itself 60mm and the paper towel 110mm, works really well (for me)

Dirty Laundry!

This was the first thing I did, the cloth laundry bag had to go, was an under utilised idea in my opinion.  I added two cuphooks and have very handy buckets to take to the laundry.  Another bucket fits below and I use it like a drawer, therefore fitting more in.  I live in my moho so space is always at a premium

A cut down bucket makes the space easier to access and you can fit more in, very important!

Great! I like the idea of using those buckets, wouldn't have thought of cutting one to fit a space, you have got me thinking!!

 

Under bed airing

I did as Les suggested and moved the brackets so the bed could be lifted higher making much better access.  Bent towel rails along the curved edge, plus hooks for smalls, are great for airing washing

Another clever idea.. Our Tracker has some space under the bed but I nearly have to fold myself up into a ball to access it easily. I might look into moving the hinges. I lurve the idea of the towel rails bent to fit that shape.. I think that you could take this up as a career!

Sue

Thanks, yes it's right up my alley!  Did you see Les's earlier post about moving the hinges, I used to have to roll myself up into a ball to get in there too, not now!

Shoe cupboards

You probably call them something else, or use them for something else, they are below the drawers in the bedroom (Delaware) and to fit more shoes in (yes we can never have too many pairs, just never enough room for them!) I put in these bins plus a sensor light as cupboards were quite dark.

Sandy Dougherty

What sort of sensor light did you use?

Sue

Hi Sandy, have just added two photos, the second I tried to show the bracket.  It's an Arlec UC0122, 260mm long and I bought it from Bunnings.  You have to be a contortionist to instal, but well worth it!!

Cocktail Cabinet no longer!

This is the cupboard AT call the "Cocktail Cabinet" with the bottle holders and glasses etc.  I didn't need those, relocated to above the sink, and the shelf that came out of the cupboard above the fridge was cut down and put in here, for my first aid and tool kits

Now this is I think... Your BEST idea!! It is a deep space isn't it? What a good way to use it. Lucky you are quite tall!

This is attached to the inside of the cupboard above the sink, very handy to the bin!

Hi Sue,

 

Where did you get the turn button from?

 

Thanks

Great idea Sue. I take it that is beside the gas hob. Do you find it gets hot when you're cooking? or do you take it away then?

Sue

Hi Peter
Bought from Affordable Caravans online, it's the same as the one holding back the privacy screen in the bedroom.
Hi Sandy
I leave it there all the time but haven't cooked with gas yet, I'm sure it would be fine (-:
