I like the bullnose front edge, and used the idea. Helps hide my ragged saw cut on the shelf. Project is going well and should be finished when I get a few more hours to work on it.

For those who like the idea of shelving in a wardrobe, there is a simple, low cost solution. BB&B, Amazon and numerous other vendors have canvas, hanging closet organizers in the range of $10 - $20. You can get them in all sorts of sizes and configurations. The canvas cubicles are great for rolled up clothing of all types. We left about 1/3 of the available space for traditional hangers and the other 2/3rds of the space is for the organizer and is really well packed with clothing.

Just noticed I had a before picture/video of my plans with the wardrobe space. Archie included at no extra cost.

When we bought our first popup my wife informed me that I was going to modify all of the shelves, drawers, and cabinets. I did a really nice job. Another popup got modified, then a Class C, and now 2 travel trailers. I wish I would have done a crappy job the first time and I would have had a lot less work to do. I hope that the current TT is around for a long time. She wants a place to store everything.

So here's my no drill project. The horizontal pieces are intended to keep the supports pressed into the corners to prevent the whole thing from bouncing up. Thanks for the bullnose edge idea.

That looks nice! I'm going to add lights to each shelf level, 2 additional, operated by the existing light and switch at the top.
