We used finished plywood. Thanks. We're expecting temps close to 80 degrees Thursday which sounds fine but it's February and that means possible tornadoes. Good luck with your mod.

Dutch DH just told me he did use 1 x 4 pine for the drawer sides and ends. Finished plywood for the drawer bottoms and the structure he built inside the pantry. Sorry for the confusion. What would a wife know anyway. Just love the finished product.

Patry Mod complete

Well we finally finished the pantry mod today in my 2012 378TS.

I installed two pieces of 1/2" plywood on both right and left using liquid nail and screws.

From that all the shelves went in with only some small plastic shelf extensions.

I only added 4 shelves and mounted them to the rear so I would have space between shelves and door for my securing bar.

The securing bar will be used while in travel so the shelves won't move out and stay stationary.

We made the bottom and top shelves with more space.
Bottom for heavier tall items and the top shelf more for chips and large bag stuff.

Here are a few pictures.

Looks great. A few questions. What length screws did you use to attach the 1/2 inch plywood to the wall, Did you make the drawers or buy them and if you did buy them where did you buy them, where did you get the drawer slides and what length were they. Thank you Iggy

I believe they are 3/4" flat heads.
I drilled small pilot hole first.
When everything was ready I put 1/2 a tube of liquid nail on my 20"x40" plywood and started to screw it so it would be snug to the 1/4" backboard that is in the walls.

I had the draws made locally for around $36 each and that included the 3 side mounted glides and the large bottom base glide. You can see them in the picture. This is my price because the factory is here in North Phoenix.
My price included installation, tax and all the needed hardware and spacers.
Cost me about $200 installed because I had my kitchen shelves done by them and they gave me a little break ont he price.
If you order it online and put it in your self it would be around $266 plus shipping and tax.

I believe the glides are 22" because they were already mounted to the side of the draws.

If I wanted the higher side ones it would have been $11 more each draw.
I decided it wasn't worth it.

Here is their website
