Under dinette bench storage

Hi,
We ordered a Rockwood Roo 21SS over the weekend. I was looking at the under the dinette storage cabinets and thinking how I always hated that in my pop-up. Bending over to look inside or taking off the cushions to access it was a pain. I was thinking that slide out drawers would be the way to go. Has anyone ever done that? I'm sure I can pay someone a ton to have these installed, but I am a bit of a do-it-yourselfer and was hoping to just get an idea how to proceed.

Our front under storage dinette does have a slide out drawer but not the rear seat, so I did this, easier to get stuff out.

I had the same issue, and needed more storage for pots n pans in my Micro Lite. I ran to the local home improvement store and found some 3/4 in shelving that matched the wood grain in the trailer. I also picked up some drawer raills. Had some 1/4 in underlayment from the garage, made some cuts on the tablesaw, and made the drawer. I also took the door off the hinges and adapted it to fit on the face of the drawer. Then I took a sheet to 1/2 in plywood got the spacing for the rails on the drawer. Made some risers out of 2x4's to mount to. Good project for a do-it-yourselfer.

At my local Big Lots I found a long plastic box, made for storing Christmas wrapping paper under the bed. About 4' long, with 2" wheels on each end, and a top that flips
open from either end. $7 or so.
I was lucky as it just fits and fills the space pretty well.
A cabinet maker could probably make a drawer with wheels on one end and a handle on the other for $50-60?
