Underneath the bed

My wife and I just recently purchased a Cruise-lite 181bhxl. But we were wondering what is underneath our bed, are there tanks there, as the plywood is screwed in. Didn't want to unscrew the plywood screws just yet.

Has anyone already checked theirs, or is this suppose the extra storage?

From the drawing it looks like the bed is right above the storage you can access from outside. You might be able to get a clue from looking at from the storage door and seeing if it been closed off or not. In my case the bed storage and the pass through storage share the same area (in other words are one in the same).

The drawing is wrong, there is no outside storage door on the rear side of the trailer

Maybe I'm looking at the wrong model. Is your unit different from the pic below?

Ours is 2013 the same model as the picture, but it does not have the storage as shown. I am thinking that is a 2012 or 2011 model? Maybe they forgot to put one in ours?

It is listed as 2013 on the FR website but maybe there's been a change in the design since your unit was built which isn't all that unusual.

Just curious - Do you have one or two storage areas in your unit?

Just guessing but maybe you have hidden storage under the bed after all but those screws are throwing me for a loop. I wish there were more information available on floorplans.

Your floorplan looks real nice - especially with having a couch too.

Unscrew and see what is inside, never hurts to look. I unscrew everything and look to see what is there. I had a new PUP that had the electrical area cover screwed down. I opened it up, repositioned some of the wiring with wire ties and vacuumed up the left over saw dust and things.
