2504s pass through storage dimensions?

I've tried a couple of searches and couldn't find anything (my search fu may be weak). I'm picking up my new 2504s on Wednesday and would like to go ahead and buy some totes to organize water, electrical accessories and the like. Does anyone have the dimensions of the opening for the pass through storage? Thanks in advance for your help.

Are you talking about the front pass through? Is so its pretty small because of the Murphy bed. The doors on each side are a different size. The street size door is 31X15 inches but the pass through is only about 11 X 20. Pretty tough to get a decent size tote in there because of the framework. The good news is that the bottom of the couch flips up and would allows for bigger storage container but it is not hinged. I can get more measurements if you need them. Jay

Do the latest version still have the "drawer" that pulls out from the front of the couch? if it does like my 2015, then you will be limited even further. I'm planning on removing the drawer and its slides to make more room as well as having access from the outside doors

We don't have the drawer under our couch, it isn't even open at all. When we ordered ours, we expected a 2014 and got a 2015. We had planned on using the under couch area for shoes and things, but it is sealed off from the pass through. We could open it up if we wanted, but so far haven't.


As far as totes for water hoses and the like, I keep all of that in the storage under the bunks. Its conveniently located by the water/electric hook ups, so that helps as well. I was able to get two totes that fit side by side. But you have to put one in, and slide it to the left, then squeeze the second one in to the right of it (toward the rear of the trailer). Off the top of my head I don't know what the measurement of the door is. One big tote would probably fit if the long dimension was front to back, but I use two totes in order to separate water and electric accessories.


This is hopefully marginally helpful, since I wasn't able to provide dimensions, and our unit is in a storage lot, good luck.

like Jay said in post #2 above, the pass thru storage that is there with the Murphy Bed is not at all what is available when you have the regular full time bed, but then the benefits of the MB are many in exchange,....... the link below is a thread about modding the space under the sofa,..... post #11, 17 & 19 of that thread are photos of what I did, others have added their ideas as well, hope this helps,.........

Murphy bed sofa storage area?

Be aware - I have the Mini Lite version of fella10's Micro Lite. I do NOT have the pull out drawer under the sofa. I have a relatively open pass through that goes under the sofa. When I lift the seat cushions of the sofa I can access this pass through area, as well as from the doors on each side of the TT. So your TT may look like fell10's OR it may look like mine, OR it may look like something totally different. None of these seem to really be "standard."

Note that some come with a table/armrest on each side of the sofa's and some don't, there's just an open space on either side of the sofa. (See attached pic - the 120VAC outlet is installed in this table/armrest that you may or may not have). So if you're ordered yours, you won't really know what you've got until it arrives and you can eyeball it.

PS - I added the 120VAC outlet, which is why I have a pic of it.

rockfordroo,

does the front of your sofa open or do you only access from outside? Nice job on outlet addition, I think I might add a 120vac/usb combo outlet

thank you Craig, ...... my sofa had the drawer(shown in post #10 of that thread), ...... so my mod starts from that, but what rockfordroo says that it seems there's no standard for that sofa is true, .... but there does seem to be several ways to mod that area, even though they aren't all the same,...... modding is fun when it turns out good............
