What did you do on the bottom of the cabinet where you have a high lip in front?

Hmmm... I forgot about that detail. Just took a look, and there is a piece of plywood under the bottom container, and I think it is about 3/4" thick. This raises that container just enough so that the drawer clears the lip. The plywood only needs to roughly fit the bottom of the container, as the foam keeps the containers centered in cabinet cavity.

I apologize if this missing detail caused you problems.

Thanks to all who posted on this thread. As we are a bit "mechanically challenged," I like the Container Store drawers.

I had drawers in our previous RV, a Class B, and found that they were often difficult to slide open when filled.

Have you, RKloud9 or Nancyc7 experienced any problems with your drawers? Especially if you have canned goods in them?

Thanks!

We have a Sunseeker 2430 GTS. The floor plan is the same as a Sunseeker 2400W but it is a gasser.

HA! that's why I like this idea so much. My husband is mechanically inclined but certainly not a cabinet maker or a really good carpenter like some of these ideas require.
I have not been able to install ours yet but I have everything. The plywood "floor" is not cut yet. I think I will be able to do this all by myself.
Ours is in the shop for 6 weeks!! now. It's the "after you bought it tune up" of 6 items.

Hi. I just wanted to provide a tip regardless of what pantry solution you go with. Make sure you measure the width in the front as well as the back on the top and bottom. I had over 1/2 difference on mine.

Well, we got ours out of the shop after 12!!! weeks, and I put in those boxes of drawers in.Rkloud9, they fit so awesome!! It's amazing. I had left over thin yoga mats from lining drawers and I stacked up enough to replace the piece of plywood at the base. The 5 drawers fit right in. We had some pool noodles left over and pipe insulation to cut in half. My husband didn't think that part was entirely necessary but the top drawer, when full and open, would pull over the entire stack, push up top shelf and dump everything out. Maybe when they all got full it would work but I'm not sure. The 1/2 pipe cover or pool noodle shoved down each side kept them steady. God forbid anything rattle anyway. I would post a photo but I don't know how and it's the same as your set. Thank you for showing this. It's so helpful.

12 weeks! If RV places gave out loaners while they were servicing, this lead time would magically shorten.

The boat, car, lawnmower and motorcycle industry can't get away with this length of service times. Why does the RV industry?

I have yet to take mine to service and have luckily fixed everything myself but 3 months seems to be the norm. That's terrible.

Well you can see, we don't have a lot of stuff yet. I do think they could be difficult to pull out if packed with something as heavy as a lot of canned goods.
We don't have much canned goods at home? Tuna, sardines and coconut milk is what I see right now. Apparently we eat a lot of frozen food. Obvs, we have to think all this through a little better.

I did pack the top drawer with heavy stuff and that's when I discovered pulling the drawer out would tip over the stack without stuffing the insulation down the sides.

But, since we don't have KSun, the finish carpenter at home, these drawers are a stellar idea.
