Aria 3901 - Trash bin

This is a really stupid question but I must ask...

We purchased a brand new 3901 last week. Now that it is settling in, we are just wondering what any of you 3901 owners do for managing the trash bin. This rig has no under the sink space and has no obvious space for a trash bin.

I would like to collect ideas on how owners of the Aria 3901/3902 handle their trash...

What is under the sink? I watched a couple you tubes on it and they show doors under the sink but never open them up. There is room under the 1/2 bath sink maybe, or the pull out counter extension?

With the space that thing has I am sure the trash can will fit somewhere.

Congratulations on the purchase. I am sure you will enjoy the heck out of it.

There is a large drawer under the sink that is obviously meant to be used as a pantry for larger items like cereal, flower etc. The drawer is divided into 4 quadrants to stand things up in it but not high enough for anything like a trash bin.

The half bath has a cabinet under the sink but it is too small for anything that size.

I am sure we will enjoy this coach. We just have to figure out how to live in it.

We use a 13 gallon trash can with lid. During travel we store in the mid-bath and when slides are extended we pull out the counter extension and place the bin on the kitchen side of the extension on the end by the booth. Still plenty of room to use the sink. We have found we like the extension out while camping and its a convenient place for the bin.

We keep a trash bin, cleaning supplies, garbage bags, dish rack, etc. in our under sink drawer. Where are you located in our fine state?

We just leave the bag in the left side of the sink and toss it daily.

We use a 7.5 gal touch top. It fits under the kitchen table when moving and by the fireplace when stationary. Works for 1-2 days just fine. We put the Kuerig, kitchen supplies and the colander under the sink. Ours has been great

We have a 24” high waste can that we place in front of the fireplace. When in motion, we place it under the dinette.

At the risk of being a wise guy, we just use a trash bag and put it somewhere we wonít be walking inside or outside the RV.

In our old class C, we used a command strip hook on the backside of the wall dividing the kitchen& bath. Just hung a trash bag there.

If it's not too late for you, we use a kitchen trash can with lid. We have a full wall slide, so it works for us to keep it behind the drivers seat when the slide is in so it doesn't have a chance to tip over. and when the slide is out well it still is in the same spot, we have a front kitchen so it works very well for us. We don't have to take trash out every few ours or so, usually last 3 - 4 days. Outside use command hooks high enough so animals can't get to the trash, that lasts about a day. We're outside more than inside, so that one fills quickly.
