274dbh nightstands

Has anyone done anything with this space? What is under/behind these nightstands? Looks like it could be useful storage or laundry, etc. What is in there?

While I have never really thought about it, you bring up a good point. I think it is probably just an empty box. This could be a good storage space if someone put a door in it. I may take a closer look at mine to see if I can do it easily.

I ordered a cabinet door today to do this. To get easier access to the water heater. Click image for larger version

Unfortunately, my 2017 nightstands have usb outlets at that location so I'm not sure this would work for me.

I too am using space at hot water heater. First reason was for better access to hot water heater but realized its nice for storing the slippers when climbing in bed.
Actually I made my own door using poplar from Lowes and part of the factory plywood used to build out the box.
Also found a suitably stain that matched the trailer

No I just bought the trailer and then just ordered a 13 x 13 pantry door for it. That way it came in the same color as the trailer did. Should be able to go to any FR dealer and have them order one unless you have an older model then might have to go get it matched at home depot or lowes.
