I was looking over my DS bath vanity which has three left side draw fronts which are face covers only, no draw. Checking closer I see some holes in rear wall that look to be holes from draw hardware. I was thinking that for some reason last owner may have taken the draws out and fastened the front so they would not be used.I would like to have draws if possible. LOOKING FOR HELP!!!!

Is the back side of plywood reinforced with at least 1" to 1 1/4" boards around draw face opening? IF it is you may have means to rebuild the draws or you will have to start from scratch. Take a look at other draw openings for idea if opening is deep enough maybe worth while. What does he have in that space now

The front of the cabinet looks the same on the door side to the right. There are openinggs cut in the front cabinet which are covered with draw face plates.The cabinet has a full depth inside and no upstructions the drain and water lines are on the door side. There looks to be no reason that the draws are not there. I looked in the kitchen draws which are much deeper with a hard wood frame work in rear that the slides are screwed into since that cabinet is so deep.The real question I think is if the slides can be screwed into this, is the outside side wall have anything in there to fasten to. I was hoping to here from somone that has a 2001 DS who could view it and get back to me or pix would be great.
Thanx

The back of the cabinet wall will have the same 1/8" plywood as all coachs have but you would fasten a board and liquid nail to wall surface also plus screws for draw guides would be in wall also.
Would be setup like all your other draw cabinets.
