Has anyone added a hinge to their steps to create a storage area for shoes, etc?

We have done a few of those. It depends on if its framed in under the steps which they are not usually. The top step tends to just have a metal platform to hold the batteries. We end up welding up a box and lining it with wood and carpet and installing a piano hinge and a latch. It works really well but like I said its is under the unit and any road debris can hit it so it will need to be pretty sturdy.
