adding cargo slides

So I was thinking of adding several slides to my basement storage to make it easier getting several things like the grille and several other items out whether the MH slides are out or in, I've been on the internet the last few days but it seems all the sell is the slide rails which you have to add the plywood to make the platform. No I understand why this would be good since I'm sure there's not standard dimensions on the size of the bays but it seems every one I find shows a nice tray in the picture but not only does it no include the tray but doesn't have any dimensions on the rails themselves. Plus I find the rails pricey without the platform included. Am I missing something? I've looked on etrailer, Amazon, RVupgrade, etc... If I'm going to have to make the platform can I get some rails from the likes of Home Depot or Lowe's that would be cheaper that would work? Thanks

I have a 2019 FR3 33DS and Ive been thinking of trays too. Same issue there is no off the shelf option the bays on my rig are too oddball. BUT there is a solution for items just as you asked and that I will be doing. Build your own.. something that is basic but gets the job done.. Watch this video will give you a good idea

Go to Youtube. There is a couple on their who have just installed MoRyde
slides- dual direction. MoRyde is your best bet for READY TO PUT IN PLACE
slides. Costly, but I think well worth the investment.

I've been planning on following the 'DIY Storage Drawer' YouTube video also posted above. I'll post some pix here when done - and thank you for all the additional links, I'll take a look at those too.
Mine is a 2021 Surveyor 19bhle.

I ordered some 36 HD (250lb) Ryadon drawer slides and made these plywood drawers & supports for the storage area of my 2014 Wildcat Max 27RL travel trailer. Just used them for the first time camping today.

Those are nice looking. Great job. I'm on hold right now maybe moving up to a new coach with a tag axle. It has several slides already but may want to add some others so I'll keep this out there. Thanks 😊
