My gas spring struts are too weak to keep it open after adding a memory foam pad to the matress so I don't plan on using it unless I can make it easy to access with either a board to prop it up or stronger gas spring struts.

Thankfully there is nothing at all under my bed except empty space and some plumbing access for the shower which is just to the right of my bed. I will probably use it for what others have already said they use it for: Mainly infrequently used items that I don't want to use up valuable cabinet space for and don't want to leave in storage either.

I already use the shower/bathroom area as a closet and hang my full length (trench) coats off of the shower curtain bar, store the small shopvac in the shower + a small trashcan.

I have no idea, and my wife tells me it is none of my business. However, I can tell you it is packed with lots of stuff.

What do you store under the bed?

How much does your tire + wheel weigh? On my bus that would be a gut buster to wrestle out of the under bed space, through the bus and out the door. But, admittedly, I'm old and lazy. Anyway, I can't imagine my wife allowing me to bring a smelly tire inside the bus and hide it under the bed.

I really wish I could get my folding dinette chairs under there, but the slide mechanism has the space pretty well cut up and there's no way they will fit. My sleep number mattress pump is under there, the slide lock tool, and a few odds and ends. The slide takes up a lot of the room, so it will be small items only for the most part.

Quilt, set of sheets, hiking shoes, mid season jackets. There is still a lot of room under our island bed. I just imagine having to empty it out in a hurry to get to the engine and tranny along side the road, which by the way we had to do once.
There are several dirty words to fulltimers and ironing board is one of them

Multiple answers stated an ironing board! When I bought my coach 3 years ago it had an ironing board under the bed. I threw it in the first dumpster I passed! I am retired and will not ever iron a shirt again,

Mine contains the folding chairs for the dinette, extra toilet paper (never enough), spare blankets, pillows for the fold out bed, laundry baskets and laundry supplies. Also a sleeping bag for the Jacknife sofa in case I make the DW very mad.

My wife is a quilter. We carry her cutting boards, measuring tools and - wait for it- a small ironing board and iron. The sewing machine won't fit under the bed. I wish it did.
