New owner here!

Hi all,
We are the proud new owners of a Dynamax Force 37BH HD. Wondering what storage hacks yíall have so I donít have to reinvent the wheel. We have had a 2007 Winnebago Sightseer 35j for 14 years, and the Force is a different beast altogether.
I have seen the aftermarket console units, but our coach has the JBL speaker so the console isnít compatible, sadly.
I love the powerful engine, and will learn to make the storage work- just hoping for tips and product or diy suggestions.
Thank you!

Congratulations on your purchase. You'll love it. I'm not clever enough to create all of the cool ideas presented on the forum. Just stay tuned and they'll pop up.

Bob

welcome. There are a few "mod" threads if you search Force Mods. I know an underbed storage reclamation project. Maybe some dinettes.

For storage one of the most under rated and best things we've discovered are the clear plastic bins. For the medicine cabinet, for the fridge. For the cabinets. Theres a lot of personal presence involved in how you organize but these do a fantastic job of keeping things in place while moving. And making the most of the space you've got to work with

I have inquired about a shorter console by Build 5 Fabrication and that may be coming soon.

I use these as well. I line them up in the kitchen and pack them for the trip then carry them out to the coach. Very handy.

Thank you! Forums like these could’ve saved me a ton of research on our former coach, lol.

The center console is currently being redesigned to accept the JBL sub, so I have heard. I think they said this summer.

As noted, we picked up a lot of storage under the bed, added shelfs to some of the bigger kitchen cabinets.

Hi Halla,
I can’t find the thread(s) about reclaiming under bed storage space despite many searches in the forums. Do you have a link to it? Brian also mentioned it, but I don’t want to bother him if I can avoid it.

Well I cannot find the post either, I know I did a Force modification thread back in 2018, but there was no pics of under the bed. Here is what I did, I bought the bed lift hydraulics. I custom build wood sides and wrapped them with automotive carpet (thin stuff for speakers). The right side is not very deep, it is over the electric panel etc... and I didnt want to disturb the wiring.

go to https://www.hatchlift.com/bedlift-kits

for your lift, you put size of bed, etc... and it will walk you through what size lifts you need.

What year is your rig, ours is 2016 and the tv in bedroom was not mounted on opening door. Removed tv and installed tv on frame and hinge that opened and tons of storage behind tv now. Also created pantry storage that works better than the wire racks.

It’s a 2021 Force 37BH HD.
We’ve got the space behind the tv as it’s already mounted on hinged door.

Thank you. This at least gives me something to show DH who isn’t at all sure we can make more space there, lol.
