Added Drawer Space

I noticed that in our TT there was wasted space between the back of the drawers and the wall. I measured the space and made some simple wooden boxes that I bolted to the back of the drawers. There were three kitchen drawers, two in the bathroom and two in the slide. Not only gave us extra storage, but helped to keep things organized.

Safe travels.

They look nice and provide you extra space. What a good idea! I would not have thought to do that.

Did you change the drawer slides to longer units, or did yours come long enough to pull the drawer out that far?

I've thought about building new drawers because there's a lot of space behind them like yours, but just adding a box to the back is a great idea.

Bama Rambler,

Those are the original drawer slides. That's what gave me the idea. Made the project super simple.

Safe travels.

Great idea, I love ingenuity and making wasted space usable....... there's only limited space available in both trailers or MH, and when any of that space is wasted or unused, that's a shame,...... good job......

I just went and checked ours and the drawer slides are only 18" long as are the drawers. However, there's room for at least a 24" drawer and slide. And just so happens that I have a couple of pair of 24" slides. Sounds like a tomorrow project.
