Not referring to the vanishing point going back to the wall, talking about the curvature going from the bottom of the closets up the wall. They curve, but the front corner of the closets are straight.

I wouldn't put drawer in there, as I can imagine that I'd forever be wanting something in that drawer, then having to move my keys, phone, etc.... that I just laid on that nice table surface IN FRONT of that drawer, over to the bed so that I can open it!

Too bad the outlets aren't inside those cubbies, so that the wall wart cell phone chargers, extra wire, etc.... could be hidden down there, with the business end passing up through a small hole with one of those little desk porthole thingies (technical term). If that were the case, you could trim out the openings with a false door front, with some magnetic or friction catches, just to hide the mess.

What does the brochure show in this place? Maybe the factory "forgot" to finish the job and left the drawers out???

My guess though, is that it's an attempt by the designers to add a little something so that an alarm clock would be above the bed level so that it would be visible. Nothing more......

cabinet doors

Perhaps if you could find a sales brochure for this unit, you could see what was supposed to be there, if anything.

Could be just an inexpensive night stand.

Wow... What a response. Thank you all!

My wife has already planned the wicker basket idea, so she's there with ya.

Yes, the cabinets overhead have doors. Full disclosure: I didn't take this photo... This one isn't even my camper. I found this pic online on a sales website and it showed the cubbies best of any others I'd seen. I guess i should have stated: for informational purposes only.

The closets actually do hover directly above these cubbies. The dimensions at the base of the closets are the same footprint as the cubbies.

Ill find some creative way to use the space. Till then, thanks for the info.

Looks just like our 17FQ. Ours are open on the side next to the mattress
just like the photo. We've found them to be quite useful as a place to lay our glasses at night, charge cell phones, lay a book for late evening reading, etc.
If yours have sides next to the mattress I would be looking at ways to remove them for better access to the bottom section. With the dark covering in the base most anything dark in color is barely visible stored down below.
To us they are little nightstands, nothing more.

Our 17bh is similar. I put a dual usb charging outlet in place of the regular outlet, so we have two usb outlets and a single 110 now. It is perfect for charging phones at night and keeping stuff off the bed like keys, wallets and glasses.

On my 25DS those are closed in with an electrical outlet on each side. Hmmm wonder if I could get a little more storage there.
