Tiny doors

We just picked up our new 192 HW and planning the storage. I'm trying to figure out how to retrieve stuff stored under the bed from the outside door. It's so small it doesn't seem like you can get much out through it. What do you store under there and is it easily accessible from the outside?

We faced the same issue with our t21qbhw. We were also looking for additional clean storage space inside the camper. We used 1/4 inch plywood and 2x2 framing to divide the compartment into 2 sections the rear for storing outdoor gear and the portion accessed from inside under the bed into a clean storage area.

I think those small doors are useless. Wish that they were not there.

Not having a highwall, yes the doors are small. But there isn't room to go much taller. I do not like raising the bed as I have a mattress topper on top.

So I load stuff I need immediately like chocks, Leveler blocks, water hose, electric cords under the bed reached through the door. Bulkier items like the gray water bucket and lantern requires lifting the bed.

Food and kitchen stuff go under the dinette.

Tools, camp stove, propane cans go in the left rear.

I don't use the under bed storage much. The never been used potty that came with the camper is in there, From the outside, there are some beach towels, the spare trekking poles, and other stuff that I really don't need.

I like the ideas here to make better use of the space. Particular Butch's idea of dividing it. And keeping the extension cord in there is a good way to keep it from getting tangled with the other stuff in the storage trunk. I could put my fresh water hoses in too, since I rarely use them.

Thanks for asking the question, Jodilc. it got me thinking about how to make better use of the space.
