We have a floor plan that has exceptionally deep cabinets at the one end. I mean like close to 4' deep.

My wife and I are altitudinally challenged, 5'7" and 4'11" respectively. The upper cabinet and below the sink are so deep that we really can't think of anything that can be practically put back there w/o a major project to get it out.

Wonder if anyone else has thought of how to handle this challenge and leverage the space.

Custom cabinet shops (even the chains like Lowes & Home Depot) sell pot/pan trays that slide on tracks that go on the shelves of base cabinets. Maybe something like that may help you out.

Scott, as you are going to be at Newmar during the period that they do add-on work at a discounted rate, you might consider asking them about building drawers in those cupboard. There prices and workmanship will probably beat anybody.

Scott, when I met Peter and his wife they showed off the inside of their cabinets.

Peter's wife had gone out and purchased wire shelving to facilitate double stacking items in each cabinet. While you'd obviously not want to do it in the upper cabinet,maybe doing it in the lower cabinet would be nice.

You can get deeper drawer slides (for roll out shelves). Any cabinet shop can make them up for you. http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=1491 has some very good slides that would work well.

How about a short matress for "altitudinally challenged" guests.

We already have one in the compartments. However, that's where we tell the kids they have to sleep when they're bad.
