What is a good solution for this gap? When the outside storage compartment is open, cool air escapes. I'm concerned with heating for winter months as well .

We used to have a 28bh with the same thing. Never worried me but I didn't leave that access door open other than to grab things and close it right back up. A pool noodle would be an option if you want something there. As far as heat loss, I don't think my 28bh had much insulation and all the plumbing and tanks were completely open from the bottom so no cold weather camping for us back then. Good luck

Thanks, I'm using the pool noodle idea.

I dont think covering that hole in the top will help much. the bottom of the couch is open too. you also need some of that space so that the couch can fold down to a bed.

I was thinking about boxing in that area with some wood to close it off.

Maybe a piece of Lauan plywood underneath would work. I'm surprised that Forrest River left it open to begin with. Being open serves no purpose.

My fix was to cover a pool noodle in fabric. Looks good too

that looks nice. I don't understand why they didnt box it in. they should have. It would help with the gap when the couch is down for abed. thats more why i want to box it in so that i can make a cushion that will sit on it when the bed is down so there isnt a huge hole there
