We haven't had to hang any clothes back there yet.. so i dont know if we'll ever need too. Some shelves would be nice though. Right now my lantern and camera tri-pod is back there standing straight up and down. I might just hang jackets back there for snow season.

my rear closet has the small bar to hang stuff but I have never used it. I usually use that space for storing my pillows, down comforter and sheets or any larger bulkier items like my down jacket or something. Like Geoff, I blew out the lower floor by overloading it and driving rough roads. Pretty easy fix though...

As soon as the lousy 102 temps go away I plan to do a rip out of all the stuff I have loaded in the van and never have used. I loaded up the closet with more jackets and shirts than I'll ever need. I plan to store items like extra pants and jackets that I use for extreme cold weather in stuff bags which will take up much less space. I have probably accessed that closet 5 times in two years. It's tough to get to unless you open the rear doors (EB-50) and I hate the way the doors slide. On long trips I bring a soft bag of extra cloths. A family would be different.

Rear Closet Questions

Does someone have dimensions for the hanging rod in that closet? I guess that's what I really wanted to know. Thanks for all your good help!

Trek,

What dimensions are you looking for?

We have hanging rods in two different closets at the rear of our SMB. One we use every trip for hanging clothes. The other is there if we need it, but that closet also has adjustable shelves and we normally use the shelves. The widths of the two closets are different, and IIRC there is no standard length for the hanging rods. Just like the closets can be any custom width, I suspect the rods are the same way.

Greg,

The standard RB50/EB50 layout shows a rear closet at the very back of the vehicle on the driver's side. I was just wanting to know how long the hanging rod is in there on a typical setup (or how long of one could be installed with the standard cabinet)? Looks like it would be in the neighborhood of 7 to 12 inches, but I can't tell from the pictures.

Thanks,

We don't have a 50, so I am not sure if our number would help, but I would be happy to measure if you want.

In my 2004 RB50, the rear closet hanging rod is 6.5 inches long.

Thanks alot for the info Geoffff! That's a big help. Now with that deep of a closet, how wide is your sofa/bed? I just looked at a Pleasure-Way Traverse (RB-50 layout) and measured a 59-inch wide bed.

Thanks again,

Sorry to revive this old thread. I would like to rig a hanging shelf with nylon webbing in the rear closet of my RB50. I am thinking about using the clothes rod as the top mounting point and then add some clips to the bottom corners. I saw this at Outside Van. Has anyone done this before-- no need to reinvent the wheel.
