Wanderer Express Instant Set Up Wardrobe 3 Shelf
The team at Wanderer have brought us a nice little compact storage unit called the Express Instant Set Up Wardrobe 3 shelf. This product opens up from a small carry case to provide three mid-sized shelves, along with a small tabletop and mesh ventilation that will ensure your clothes remain moisture-free.
This is probably best suited for storing clothes, towels and equipment inside your tent next to your stretcher and can double up as a bedside table.
Food can also be stored inside, however as it sits directly on the ground, you should place it on a table to reduce insect invasions.
Overall, this is a solid storage unit that customers all rate very highly and only loses points for not having any feet. Great for clothes storage inside a tent.
OZtrail Cupboard 3 Shelf Deluxe – Double
Best For Food Storage
OZtrail is great at making quality and well thought out camping furniture and the 3 Shelf, Deluxe Double Cupboard is another example.
This product could be used to store anything from food to clothes, equipment and anything else you may need on hand. It's strong enough that you can use the tabletop for eating or preparing food too, though it's a little low for an adult standing.
This is a well-loved product and pretty much everyone that has purchased and used these shelves have had nothing but positive things to say about it.
There is plenty of space, six shelves for maximum organization, it sits up off the ground to reduce insects and has a quick and easy zippered door. Great for storing anything really, inside or outside.
Zempire Eco Camp Cupboards
Best For Food & Prep
The Zempire Eco Camp Cupboard is a storage unit that could be included as a camp table or even a camping kitchen as it certainly has a very similar profile to these camping furniture items.
The camping cupboard stands tall and can be used for any kind of storage from food to clothes. It is best suited as an outdoor storage and food preparation area due to its ability to hold a great deal of weight and its large tabletop.
There is very little criticism anyone has been able to level at this storage unit as you can easily lower the legs and use it inside your tent as a bedside table as well giving this a great deal of flexibility.
It does only have two large spaces however so while your food can all be safe inside a bug-free compartment, you can't organise things as well as some of the other options with up to six spaces.
These are minor points , however, as this is a fantastic camping kitchen cupboard and table all in one, just keep in mind that it will cost you over $200.
