Same here as others have suggested. These two drawers were one reason (there were many others) we liked the 325RES kitchen. Perfect place for all those large pans and bowls. The big pantry was also a big plus for us.
Enjoy your new Crusader!!!

Yes it is the two large drawers between the sink and stove. We were able to put all the large pots and pans under the stove. We thought the huge drawer looked great but so far no practical use. I will suggest the large plastic bowls.

Thanks all for the hint on the pantry door. I think we normally do a good job of checking before closing the slides but not so much before opening.

Is everyone just setting the large ottoman on the couch or any tips for this item?

Thanks again

Our new 2014 Crusader 325res observations

You can double stack the dining chairs on one side of table - one chair seat upside down on another then put ottoman in empty space on other side of table

Two chairs also fit the same way in the closet for washer/dryer

We took two of them out and store in house and put the crate for our chocolate lab there - fits perfectly

Thanks for the hints.
Heavynlori: We have put two of our chairs in the house also. Will definitely try the ottoman on the floor there instead of on top of the couch.

What we do is after we've tied down the recliners is set the edge of the ottoman on the edge of that slide and when we close the slide it pushes it towards the couch. You have to make sure you rotate the recliners 90 degrees and that they are close to the windows but it works perfect and you don't have to 'rassel that big sucker .

Rick, we have the 327, very similar floor plan and during PDI we were told no need to tie down furniture when traveling. Do you have an experience that might change our minds about not doing this

Probably don't need to but, you never know when a fine member of the motoring public is going to do something stupid and cause you to lock em up or swerve.

Thanks for advice. Never had so much loose furniture before and with those windows- sure do not want anything flying through them.

X2 We also put those stick on furniture sliders on the bottom to hepl it slide on the carpet. Sure beats picking that sucker up.
