We are Fulltimers. We try to categorize storage spaces by ease of access, and stuff to be stored by frequency of need. Under the bed is a pita. Accordingly, under the bed is for stuff we don't need to get to much: out of season clothing, suitcase, computer cases, fireproof safe, etc.

When we had the motorhome extra bedding, table top ironing board, metal detector, electric heater, etc. Now with the TT, the space is half the size. We don't have a dinette, but a counter overhang with barstools. Right now we have the stools stored under there for safekeeping during travels. I don't know how much they would move around if not secured somehow. Still figuring things out.

I think we make good use of the space under our bed, as well as it is organizer so we don't waste space ... Extra paper towels, extra toilet paper, table leaf, two folding dining chairs and large folding tote we use to haul stuff to/from MH and use it to go to the beach, my down jacket when it goes.

Our under the bed compartment is a catch all for assorted items we need on an occasional basis - leaves for table extensions, extra folding chairs for dining (4), surplus pillows, beach towels, assorted cooking items and the all important tickle trunk of costumes for festive parties.........yes it is way too stuffed and I am afraid to tell you what is stored in the basement.

The central vac isunder the bed so it kind of limits what else can fit. We do have extra bedding for the couch, our heavy cold weather coats, large first aid kit, extra outdoor blanket.
What is this thing that I read about called 'ironing board'? It sounds like someone is swearing!!!
30 pair of shoes!!!!!!!!! Max of three and if they do not fit in, then I do not need to go there!!!!

I do have much room under our Island Bed, that 8.3 ISC Cummins and Allison 3000 take up a lot of space.

Try stuffing a 15 L ISX and Allison 4000, the slide mechanism, over the road air con outlet, AquaHot radiator and fans and there's not much room except for few wine bottles.
