What are these for? Drawers? Cabinets? None of the above?

My wife and I are loving our new Clipper TT...


We're somewhat confused by the cubbie holes beside the bed. Are these simply cubbies? Are there supposed to be doors to cover the front, or drawers to slide inside?

Our camper varies from this photo only in that the sides where the cubbie holes meet the mattress are filled with a particle board/laminate side... making anything placed inside these (especially if the items slide all the way forward) VERY difficult to get to.

They are hard-mounted to the camper, so they're not easily removable. I don't mind having the hard-shelf there, but not knowing what they're for is driving me nuts.

I'd love to get some sort of door or drawer to slide inside here to make it look a bit more 'finished'. Any thoughts?

You seem to be right with all of your assessments. The unit does not 'seem' to be 'finished'. Since your cubbies have walls, finish it out with an added drawer.

Also looks like the sides of the closets are bowed out at the bottom as they are sure not 90d to the horizontal at the lower halve.

Optical illusion, the camper top angles back toward the camera and the closets are deeper at the bottom and narrower at the top. The side cubbies are not as wide as the closets. The OP also needs to add cabinets between each closet across the top for more storage.

The bottom of the closets are definitely not 90d to the horizontal board above the window or parallel to the front of the closets. It is not an optical illusion. They are not parallel or perpendicular to anything in the photo. They start curving at the top and get worse toward the bottom.

Not a hill to fight on. Myself, I would not have bought the unit.

It's likely one of things that you get the joy of finding something to do with the space. I'd be on the look out for some kind of wicker or pretty wood basket that fits and that you can easily pull out.

LOL! They're already there, the doors are open and hard to see at first.

That is sooo funny.... I said it looked like an optical illusion.

Thanks for pointing that out. I can see it now.....

I call it optical illusion with a wide angle lens. Notice that the "night stands" point inward. I remember in art class, when doing perspective drawings. I use to love doing those.
