Boxed in deadspace(?) 241QBXL Salem Cruise Lite

I recently purchased a 2017 Salem Cruise Lite 241QBXL. In the bathroom there is an enclosed area that I'm trying to decide if its just a space filler with empty dead space or if there is actually something in there. I'm attaching a photo but its the space to the right of the shower stall, or more accurately it is "forward" of the shower stall between the shower and the front bathroom wall. Does anyone know FOR SURE whats in that space? If someone knows it saves me repairing the wall if I cut in just to find out I can't use the space. It looks to me to be a perfect space to add some "cubby hole" storage in the bathroom. Anyone? Thanks for feedback, tboots

I'm guessing a space filler. If it is that would be a great place to park a broom. Might be worth doing some exploratory surgery to find out. I know I found a couple spaces I may utilize. One is low under the stove area and would be a good place to park extra shoes.

If it is safe, check your roof for tank vents. i know in houses you will see bulkheads and areas like that blocked off for plumbing vents and heat runs. you may find electrical tucked in there, but that is easy to deal with.

Most likely houses the plumbing vent pipe for the shower and sink drains.

If that is the case (which i suspect it is), they should be able to tell where the pipes are in that space. they can measure off of the skylight in the shower from the outside and see if it would be worth opening it up once they are inside.

I’m thinking of getting one of those little inspection cameras. Drill a little hole and peek then cover with a stick on towel hook if no go. Plenty of comments here about cutting wires and piles during exploratory surgery��. It would be nice to see a framing diagram or a video of what’s inside these rigs. Amazing amount of wasted space.
