Question for Rockwood 8280 owners

I have a 2014 Rockwood 8280ws and when I open up the bathroom vanity door, I have about a 1 foot square hole cut out in the floor that looks down into the basement. Anyone else have this? Wonder what the purpose of this hole is as you cannot store anything under the sink vanity as it will just fall down into the basement. Just seems odd they put this hole there and they even have a frame going around it. My intentions is to cover the hole with plywood so the space can be utilized for storage but was just curious what the purpose of this hole was for.
Thanks

Crawlspace access, of course! You'll need to hand your Toddler the tools once he/she is down there.

We have the twin Flagstaff with the same hole. It's a laundry chute. You're supposed to put a laundry basket, or similar, below to catch the dirty laundry. In my opinion, it's not the right place for a laundry chute. I put a large piece of wood over it so the space is useful.

that makes sense. knew it was there for a reason but just couldn't come up with a reason. I'll be doing the same as you in covering up the hole so that the space becomes more useful to us.

We like it. There is a rubbermade hamper that fits perfectly below. Fits tight and catches all the clothes.

Laundry chute. We puts whited down the hole and outerwear in a basket in our wardrobe in our 8282ws. Convenient.
