Mine doesn't seem to take up as much room as yours, looks lower to the floor for some reason. I'm glad I have only one, I wouldn't want another.

I'm guessing that in a Class A Diesel the debth of the compartments makes it more advantageous to have slide-out trays. I have a Tiffin 37DB gasser and and they would only waste valuable storage space. IIRC most of my storage bins are only 20 to 22 inches deep. I use the Sterilite "lockable" and stackable containers purchased at Wally World. I use a combination of the 6 and 12 inch deep by 18 inches long containers and I store items more or less by category. The 6in ones stack three high in the slide out compartment or one 6 and one 12. I started this during the year plus that we did FT and also now that we PT. The one deep storage area I use for long handeled tools and the ladder.

I do not have basement slides and do not think I would want them. I do want the space more than the cargo compartment slides. I store a 7 foot step ladder underneath. Pancake compressor, etc. I would like to to store 2 bicycles underneath.

I pulled out a sliding BBQ, grill, fridge and sink unit from one large compartment since it took up the whole thing. And a lot of space I did free up.. I free'd up more space than I orginally it would. And... the weight... That thing must weigh 300+ pounds. I know some would die for the electric motorized BBQ on slides, but since we don't grill out (no meat), we needed the space. I can easily put the whole thing back someday if needed.

RV Manufactures should provide additional temporary storage containers that mount and lock onto the rear of the units. Fashionable, tactfully, not a rig job and tastefully done.This would extend the RV 1-2 feet and provide up to and additional 50 sq feet of storage. The temp storage containers are easilt accessible and removable. Likey they would be containers that slide into a receiver shelf and are hidden from view once closed.

Hmm, I was actually thinking about adding one.

I have a compartment that can't be opened all the way due to the placement of the awning bracket. I keep tools and such in there. I was thinking the other day it would be nice to be able to slide it out to have better access to the toolbox.

This is my 1st RV with the trays and really like them:; have 2trays for storage and another for the refrig/freezer plus another good size storage that doesn't go all way through. Plenty storage room for me so far !

I put my draft beer tap on our slide tray. When pulled out if it drips, it goes on the ground. I also don't bang my head on the door when it is out. Beer tends to make you forget little details like that

This is the draft box I made.
