The shoe puttin' on seat

Like many, we don't wear our shoes in the camper. We have a shoe rack that we put right outside the door and pretend our kids will put them neatly in the rack.

When we leave for a hike or other activity we usually use the camper step as a seat to put shoes on. A good chunk of time that means that somebody gets smoked in the back with the door when someone else starts to come out. Not anymore.

This is a 300 pound capacity folding shower seat that is now mounted to the front of our camper.

It's mounted with stainless machine screws that go through a custom spacer block, through the frame and then through another treated block that nests inside the frame channel.

It folds up nice and flush to the side of the camper for travel. It would probably stay there while driving but I will put a twist latch on it anyway just in case.

That's a pretty good idea. Funny thing my door step has also become a convenient seat along with a shelf and everything else I think of it. How do you store your shoes? You mentioned a rack. I'm always trying to figure out what to do with shoes.

That's pretty spendy for my upcoming Dish Wash Rack / Cleanup Station / Rear Bumper situation I've got going....but that just might have to be the winner. Nice job! I really like it.

There were other shower seat options that I looked at. I just picked this one because it had a high enough weight rating for my fat butt.

This looks like the same as mine but in silver and teak instead. 1663273858102.png

Basically this but in white placed between the door and the new seat. We have an awning that is always up so they stay pretty protected.

This is completely amazing! I wouldn’t dare attempt it, my skills don’t extend that far, but you did give me the idea to set our tiny little camp chair in the same place as the designated shoe putting in place! Do they sell clips that go in that metal channel on the side? I’m thinking of screwing some of those clips into a box so I can have a shoe bin mounted on the camper.
