Extra chairs for the dinette, sunscreens for the front cab area windows, spare water filters, and the books that came with the RV.

The two extra dinette chairs, the folding coffee table, and the hose kit that goes to the central vac system. Except for the vacuum hose kit, the table and chairs came from Tiffin under the bed. I don't want to put much more under there as I have read stories of people who have had slide problems because of what was believed to have been the extra (excess) weight under the bed.

Seriously, though...freshwater tank takes up half the space. Little broomstick type vacuum cleaner occupies some of the vacant space.

Bed is too heavy to lift to get under there on a regular basis. So much so, I bring the vacuum from the house to do the carpet...

Investigating stronger lift rods is on the "to-do" list. Ideally, I would like to have a latch on the outside, release it, and bed lifts pretty much by itelf, maybe with slight assist.

We carry the extra folding chairs for our dinette, but for the life of me I don't know why. In 12 1/2 years of RV ownership we have not used them once! We should store them off the coach and free up the space, but honestly, our coach hold so much stuff that we don't need that space.

We store the pots, pans, and lids under the bed. They obviously don't get used much.

DW says we store the following: an iron, extra blankets, either a fan or heater, depending on season, central vaccuum attachments, Big Blue Bag with owner's manuals. Other "stuff" as the current journey requires. Ours isn't to difficult to get into, so we use it frequently. Also extra folding table.

We are like "JFXG"....it's a pain to access, so we store things in there that we use infrequently. My Monaco had a short length, but tall space. Our new coach has a longer length, but shorter height, so everything had to be figured out again when we changed coaches.

It seems many keep the same things under there. We keep the following:

Two folding dinette chairs
Two folding TV dinner tables
Ironing board
Soda cases and water
Two electric heaters
Day packs
Hiking boots/shoes
Small ice chests
Backpack water bottles
Beach towels

I store pretty much the same as the rest of you. I have my 2 extra dinette chairs, beach towels, sleeping bag but not sure why, our vacuum cleaner and some extra blankets. Long guns and ammo when they go with us. Have never even come close to needing an ironing board though.
