Any one added drawers

Has anyone added drawers?

I would like to add a drawer next to the sink in our new Grey Wolf 28BHG... Picked it up today and I already want to cut holes in the wood. My wife thinks I am crazy. Anyway, the trailer has an L-shaped counter, and it has 2 drawers stacked on top of each other. However there is clearly space above these two for a nice drawer for silverware. It even looks like it is supposed to be there, but it is not, it is just a blank panel. We looked throught the photos online non have a drawer there, we thought maybe it was an "option". It is just open space behind the panel, so I do not know why they did not put one there.

ARE you absolutely sure it is open space? Go back and double check? Wouldn't surprise me if it was, just make sure there isn't any plumbing back there, or electrical, or sometimes we forget about the sink being there. Take the top drawer out and look above it, and see what you find. Also see if you can get a drawer, or are you going to build it? Also don't forget about the support that it will need under it.

I alread checked , it is completly empty there, no wires, nothing just empty space. I really looks like it ws designed for a drawer, but they decided they could cut cost by removing it.

Skidoonut: Were you able to get the color to match?

Never added drawers but know what you mean about blank space - Over the bed & also over the sofa I have added doors in the blank space. Sure makes it easier to access the storage compartments. In our Mini Lite 1809S there is a space of about one foot wide by three feet tall that is also wasted space - looking at opening it up to hang coats in. Yes I have checked to make sure there is nothing behind there.

here are my final three for tonight. i made the night tables on both sides of the bed open as this space was a big waste and now we have a place to keep magazines and stuff out of site.
