Want to add a drawer.

We just bought the travel trailer listed below. The only thing I saw on any others that I wish was on this one was a full drawer under one of the dinette seats. I think it's possible to add that. Has anyone done it or do you know where directions for doing it can be found?

Well we didn't have a travel trailer but our previous coach had slide out drawers beneath the dinette seats. The previous owner had installed them and they were quite handy. You can pur have drawer hardware at any big box store along with the wood to build them. If you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself you could always have a cabinet shop measure it up and make them for you. Good luck.

What is under the seats? I owned a class C that had the hot water heater under one and the fresh water tank under the other. I could have installed about a 6" long drawer under the one with the hot water heater.

One does have the fuse box and other hardware under it. The other is just open storage.

Certainly can be done if you are handy. In order to do a decent job probably requires access to wood shop type tools - table saw, etc. Building a drawer with just hand tools would be tough. As suggested, a cabinet shop could make quick work of it.

I put these in our pop up then also put a set in our travel trailer. It is really easy to do. I built a frame for the drawer and glides then built the drawer. Butt joints are fine for the drawer. Use the heavy duty drawer glides. The inside diameter of the frame should be the same or slightly smaller than the door opening. With normal drawer glides, the outside diameter of the drawer would be 1" less than the ID of the frame. I built it all in my shop then just screwed the frame to the floor.

If you don't know how then you probably don't have the tools. So it would be cheaper to have someone build it for you than buy all the tools.

Thank you, one and all, but bradnailer, your picture actually answered my questions. I've got a couple of camping trips to go on, but come June maybe I can put mine together.
