yes, it is a small door. I have not considered enlarging it. Stuff I have stored on the left side is not stuff I routinely use or need to have before the PUP is open. I put the stuff I need to get at before the PUP is opened right there at the door (which is easy since those are also the last things I put in the space when closing up - like the tongue wheel and the chocks). Everything else can wait til the PUP is opened and can then unload from the inside by lifting the bench top (camp chairs).
