It's too bad Forest River doesn't spend the extra $100 or so to put in drawers and price them accordingly. I think buyers would go for the upgrade.
Great workmanship! Boy - I would love to have either you or VinceU on staff. Since the budget is on a diet I guess I will just have to do with just amiring your mods.

Dang! After a couple of hours of searching, I found the mfr. of the baskets on line, ordered a handful, and found that the storage/space was best by using them. If I can find them again, I'll post the name. We use the "extra" space on the bottom to store aluminim foil and such.

Waaaay more room than making drawerlets, and you can see what you have through the mesh.

It's a shame that F/R keeps the vendor a secret!

DW said they had to go from day one. Not being any good at this sort of thing, had my dealer replace the racks with 2 shelves as part of the deal; after we had agreed on the price of course.

They're made by BRD, Search Tweety's RV for "pantry baskets".

Who'd a thunk?!

We got all "four-sided" baskets, but if you buy the three sided, you can put them side-by-side, and put big junk in them.

They have several sizes. You can even buy the slide assembly, and it's all about 1/2 F/R's price.

Not all the Georgetowns use the BRD type pantry. Mine is a 2012 and it uses some other type. The baskets from Tweedy's will not work, mine does not have holes to plug the shelfs into it has hooks to hang them. Still lookin for the Manu. of them
