1/2 Sliding Front Storage Option

Does anybody know what the 1/2 Sliding Front Storage option is from Rockwood?
I ordered a new camper and 2 dealers told me it was a tray that slides out on rails in the front storage section of the camper. When it arrived it is a plastic box. It is unusual looking so there must be more to it than just putting stuff in it but the dealer could not explain it.
Any ideas?

There should be a set of rails mounted in the front storage that the bin slides into.

Most of the ones I've seen are just a slide out tray that you put your own bins on, like this.



Although I have seen a few bins similar to yours.

UPDATE: I found a pic:

My 1st pic in Post #3 is a "tray." 2nd pic is a "bin" or "box"." 2nd pic looks exactly like the OPs bin.

This looks a lot like what we have on our 25FKS microlite. Frankly its not that great. Amount it holds is minimal. Awkward if you pull out too far and can tip down but it is on rails and can be locked in place. It slides from our backend which can be an issue on our pad st home if we back up all the way, and goes all the way under the bedroom. under the bed.

Thanks all for the info and pics.
Mine did not come with any rails even though the bottom of it looks like it might be set up for rails.
At this point a cardboard box would have been just as good.
Thanks
Kevin

I'd go back to the dealer (or FR, whoever you ordered it from) and complain. Getting the bin without the rails makes zero sense.

The bin without rails is a step backward. It's taking up storage space that you could use if it wasn't in there without the benefit of being able to slide it out. So, really you'd be better off without it.
