Jayco Construction Material Question


New to the TT world. Just purchased my first, a Jayco Whitehawk
27DSRL which I won't have for 12 weeks. But, never too early to
plan modifications.

The first idea I have is to make slide out drawers for the passthru
storage. I was thinking of making two aluminum drawers, maybe 4
feet long on long drawer glides. I could pull them out to get to things
in the middle.

Does anyone know what type of material and its thickness the passthru
is made of. Floor, front wall, back wall, ceiling? Trying to figure out
where I can anchor the glides to. Floor is obvious answer to me if its
strong enough.

My assumption would be that all the Whitehawks use the same materials.
So, if the floor is 1/2 inch plywood in one model, it would be half inch
in all?

Last, does anyone know if the floor of the passthru in the 27DSRL
is even with the opening, or is there a lip I need to account for?

My White Hawk has 5/8 plywood floor, and the bed area above the pass-through is wood framed. The front wall of the pass-through has a finish panel on it so what's behind there isn't known to me, but probably sparsely aluminum framed. There is a lip at the pass through on every travel trailer I ever looked at... Enjoy it when it comes!

We have a 2014 29REKS that we really like. You will have a lip at the pass-through door. As I'm sure you've seen, the door is not as wide as the storage area so if you're building a slide, you'll have additional storage to both sides of the slide. Ours has a small refrigerator on the curb-side that I've considered removing to get additional storage since the refrig is electric and only runs when connected to shore-power. Overall we really like our White Hawk, just wish that it had a little more room in the bedroom area.
