30WFKSS (front kitchen) has no dedicated pantry space

New to the forum and this will be our 1st TT purchase... I really have some concerns about kitchen space. We picked out a Flagstaff 30WFKSS (front kitchen) at the Austin RV show and our dealer already had one on order. So I have no commitment yet to purchase. We'll look at it when it gets here. BUT there is no real Pantry in the front kitchen (unlike some other V-lite models) and no significant outside storage besides 1/2 the area under the bed. My question is does anyone have the front kitchen Flagstaff V-lite and how does it work with storing things?

I am not trying to steer you away from the V-Lite. We have had ours for a couple years. For the two of us we actual found the trailer has lots of storage. We absolutely love the kitchen. There is lots of space. But one thing to keep in mind. How much stuff do you need to bring with you and your weight and balance. The V-Lite trailers are just that. Lite... If you make lots of space to put lots of crap people will put lots of it in there. This adds a lot extra weight to the hitch of the trailer. My wife and I set up and lived in ours for 4 months and still have no issues with the storage. But it ready does depend on how much you want to bring. If you have lots of extras the best bet is to weigh your tow vehicle empty then load up all your stuff and weigh it again. This will give you a realistic calculation as to how much you will need to store and then look at the specs of the trailers. You might find the a V-Lite is not for you. I find a significant number of issues people have with their lite trailers is due to incorrect weight and balance issues. The amount of storage in the front kitchen also takes in account the weight of the galley tank when full can add an extra 300 to 500 lbs. This tank is ahead of the axels, so most of the weight is transferred to the front hitch area.

Boy if you dont like the kitchen space/storage area in the Front Kitchen V-Lite, you are Really going to be Let Down in a LOT of other units! They all have "Trade Off's" but Kitchen Area is Not one of them in these Model's! Youroo!!

We have the 30WFKSS and we love it. I use the cupboards above the table for the pantry. But really even the lower cupboards would also work well. We have great plenty storage
