Yup, wrong forum!
I'm sure a Mod will fix that for ya.
To answer your question, we had a 2008 Roo 21SS and we actually had drawers under both benches from the factory! Have they changed it? The furthest rearward bench was ordered with the full pass-through drawer meaning the drawer could be pulled out through the hatch on the exterior or through a door on the interior. If you didn't get that option, they installed a standard drawer that had a depth equal to about half the width of the bench. This is what our forward-most bench had. I took off the drawer front off the factory drawer box, built a new drawer box with full extension drawer slides with a depth equal to the full width of bench, and then put the factory drawer front on it. I actually compartmentalized that drawer as well to fit our stuff.
Along the same lines, under the jack-knife, I ordered a second door to match the one installed at the factory, doubled the width of the opening, and installed both doors to meet each other in the middle - see picture. The larger opening allowed us to pass-through Sterlite containers from the outside hatch in easily!
