Storage Under Sofa

Just bought a 2011 Wildwood 26 BHXL. Great shape.
Put in a Bayite Battery Monitor, digital thermostat, added shelves in the cabinets, removed one dinette seat and put a drawer under the other dinette seat.
Now I am looking at the Jack Knife Sofa and figuring there must be some usable space under there. The furnace can't take up all that space.
Anybody tackled this?

We owned a Surveyor that had that same thing. Built a vented box around the furnace and even added an exterior access door at the end of it to access the space.

Don't have that unit anymore or I'd take a picture of it.

Post a picture of the sofa and the corresponding outside area and I'll see if matches our old unit.

Pictures of my mods

Here are pictures of my mods. Battery Monitor; counter extension; new drawer under dinette looking downward; front of drawer under dinette (still need drawer front; and bed support/lift. Also I did take off the veneer on the end of the sofa and there is plenty of storage potential there. The furnace and hoses use only half the space. Cutting a door in today!

Drawer under the counch and removed the top bunk, Wildwood 261BHXL

Phil,
Thanks. I took off the side panel the couch which gave me good access. Cut a 14 x 7 inch hole in the front. And then installed a bamboo drawer from the container store, which actually fit in very nicely. Now I have a drawer front on order to finish it up. Picture attached, also tore out the top bunk, making that bed much more comfortable for an adult.

That looks great, did you use the area under the bunk for storage?

Under Bunk

Phil,
Under the bunk is the water tank in the 2011. You can lift up the bed and there is some space. I am using it for my sewage hose leveler.
I did put a nice shelf where the upper bunk was. Good storage, but you are not in the cave like with the upper bunk.Click image for larger version
