Where to put the silverware in an MBS 2401W

We are still 5 weeks from picking up our new MH and in looking at all the videos and pics online, we're not seeing a spot to put the silverware? There is a drawer near the floor, but this doesn't make much sense. I'm not sure if you could somehow add a drawer below the sink or not?

Just curious what others have done.

Thanks!

That's the drawer I used...the one near the floor under the sink. But I don't use silverware but instead plastic-camping-ware. I also kept all cooking utensils there like spatulas, can openers, etc.

Thanks. We were hoping someone had a solution where me and my fused spine weren't always bending over to the floor. I think they kind of missed this issue with the otherwise fantastic layout of this unit!

We use the drawer at the floor under the sink for most of our utensils. Got a silverware tray on one side, a plastic tray next to it for most of the utensils, and then there is room in the back for pancake turners, soup ladels, etc.

All of our dishes, cups, serving bowls, glasses, etc are located above the sink.

We use the drawer under the dinette, nearest the drivers compartment for pots and pans, the other one is for mixing bowels, etc.

I added one shelf along with re-adjusting the remaining shelving in the pantry in order to increase storage capacity. In the bottom of the pantry, I store the Laptop and the head for the Dyson. (I store the tubing behind the driver/passenger seat alongside the step). On the shelf above the laptop, we store a combo mixer/blender/chopper, the toaster, and the coffee maker. Above that are three shelves for food stuffs. We found some sterlite containers that fit perfectly and use them to store loose food packages.

I mounted a SentrySafe X041E 0.4 Cubic Foot Security Safe in the little cubby at the end of the bed, the one facing the living area with a door on it. I needed to raise it up an inch in order for the door to open properly, but its hidden, out of sight, and once the slide out is in, pretty much impossible to get at. There is room behind it for another small lockable storage box, if needed. Some states require that certain things be in separate locking containers, if you get my drift

Today, I made a new knife holder. The one behind the stove top is pretty much useless due to the size constraints for the knives.

I took a piece of 1/4 x 3 poplar, my table saw and router table and created a masterpiece. Well anyways, it will be functional and hold all the knives we will ever need. I turned the knives 90° from the factory knife holder. Will post pics later once the stain dries.

Actually there is a ton of storage for TWO in the MBS2400 series motor homes, but I really believe it was designed for two in the first place.

BTW if you have the trekker cap, the overhead storage is great for munchies, movies, maps, and manuals

Hey thanks! We did order ours with the trekker cap. We're going from a Lance 825 camper, so you'd think we'd be overwhelmed with all our space, but that little camper had a ton of inside storage!

Anyway, we just need to get it home and figure out things.


And LOL, ya, I get your drift!

Thanks again.

Don't own a mh, but did this to my 5er. Finally ended up mounting the flip down door to the drawer. DW loves it!

Where to put the silverware in an MBS 2401W

Ours has a drawer under the 3 burner stove top and that's where we keep kitchen utensils, can opener, silverware. My back is good and I would not like to store all that down next to the floor. That drawer closest to the floor (under the sink cabinet) is our Etc. drawer. Tape, matches, lighter, level, scissors and all the command hooks we haven't used yet.

Unfortunately the oven option, which Murelene and I decided to add, takes the place of that drawer.

There are just some things that do not turn out well in a convection/microwave oven. Like corn bread, sweet rolls, Frittata and Keesh thus our reasoning for a regular oven.

Here at home we have the best of both worlds, A Bosch Dual-Fuel range. Gas cooktop, electric standard/convection oven and a Bosch under cabinet Microwave. We wanted to duplicate that as close as possible, but had to settle for the gas oven.

I have the same RV and I bought this. It rides well above the sink and easily fits on the counter or stove top and can be brought outside.
