Although we don't have the same model, we have the 8293RKSS, which is kind of similar in the kitchen area. There is no bunk house on our model. We have adequate storage in the kitchen. We didn't go with the garden windows in the slide, so we have storage cabinets above the table and couch. With the garden windows, I believe you lose this storage. I didn't see a pantry cabinet in the 8311. We have a large pantry cabinet between our stove and refrigerator. We keep our pots and pans and all of our food in this cabinet.
