8313 question

We have the 8313 ordered and will pick up at end of the month. My wife and I have a few questions I hope someone can answer.

1 Does the queen bed have storage under it?

2 We have the 2 air mattress hide a bed couches and have read alot about then leaking and not holding up long term. Can a foam mattress be folded up inside the couch?

3 It is coming with the outside grill and table. Are they good quality or cheap? I already have a nice portable grill but it can not hook up to the campers propane line.

We have a 2008 8313. There is some storage under the queen bed, but most is taken up with the two drawers. We've used both our sofas with the air mattresses many times without any issues. After more than three years I just had to patch a small pinhole in the seam. I would think a thin memory foam mattress would fold up in the sofa. The outside grill is very nice. A little small, but it works great with the lp hookup. We love our 8313. Make sure you get a surge guard. We just recently has to replace the converter due to some low voltage issues at some parks.

We have an 8313 too. We didn't get a table with the grill, but the grill is very nice. Only problem is it hangs under the awning, makes me nervous to use with the awning open. (Mess, not fire)

We love the rig - so much space inside! (We upgraded from an 18')

The drawers under the bed are a lot of room in the. There is space in between, but not really useful for anything big.

We had to have our first air bed replaced, it came with leaks.

I just got a 2012 8313 last July. The air mattresses in the couch are stored in a pouch at the front of the bed, this way when you're putting the bed in and out, they won't get caught in the metal frame. We do have the bbq, it's ok and does the job. Like the others said, there's the two drawers under the foot of the bed, with a little storage in between, not much. The drawers make it easier to get stuff out, rather than lifting the bed up.

My camper has the hide a bed. What Is strange is the big gaping space that is left at the wall when you pull the back of the sofa out to blow up the bed making it so you have to sleep with your head facing the door instead of the wall. Unless I'm missing something.
