Where's the cooler??

Just upgraded from a Toy Hauler to a 2012 Fleetwood Storm 32BH. Wish we would of done it sooner.

Only issue so far. Where's my cooler go?? It's an average 48qt size.

Would like to hear how other Class A owners have addressed small basement storage and bringing a cooler along with their favorite beverages.

Didn't you get a refrigerator with your new MH? We have one on slides in first outside bay that plugs in. Less ice to buy. Congrats on the new unit.

When on the road, just tuck it under the booth table or maybe next to the back wall of the bedroom. When parked, move it into the living area out of the way of traffic but still convenient to grab a beer in an emergency.

We use the refrigerator. I do have a collapsible, soft sided cooler that can hold drinks and sandwiches if we are off in the Toad. When not in use, it folds up and stows underneath.

We opted for two smaller coolers rather than 1 large cooler and they both fit sideways in the pull out tray in the basement.

Basement fridge is the only way to go!
Cold ones inside & out.

I got a small fridge like a student would use in a dorm. Picked it up at a yard sale for 20 bucks like 20 years ago. Had it in my garage till I got my coach now it is in the basement. It barley fit. In fact I have to tip it forward a bit to get it to fit when closing basement slide.

We keep a large cooler in the basement storage area on a sliding tray. Anything the kids want or use frequently like water and other drinks go in the cooler to avoid consistent opening of the fridge.

Two answers: On my Class A we opted for the dining room table and chairs instead of the booth set up.. It came with 4 chairs, two standard ones and 2 folding ones that are stored in the bedroom closet (they put a storage space for 'em there).

I moved both standard ones to one side of the table and layed my Engel freezer (About the same size as your cooler in on one side of the table.. I can sit on it for dinner if I wish.

The Cooler (ICe chest type) is in the back seat of the car.. When I go Shopping Sat or Sun, I'll toss my "Polar Packs" (Competitor to blue ice) packs I get for free every 1.5 months into it before I leave the CG and the groceries that need cold go in when I leave store. Works great that way.

IF you need a cooler for your drinks,, one you put outside.. I recommend a small Office/Dorm type Fridge.

When we take a cooler it is usually to keep outside for drinks, etc. we put it under the dinette table and it is one of the first things to go out when we set-up.

We carry an empty cooler in one of the storage bays "just in case" we ever need it. Since it's just the two of us, the refrigerator usually holds sufficient adult beverages so that the cooler isn't required.
