2005 Four Winds 5000 21RB Generator Space

I have a 2005 Four Winds 5000 21RB without a generator. The space set aside for the generator is just an open bay. It seems like a waste of good storage space. Anyone know of anything I can attach under there to make a storage bay? It has a door with two latches, just a big empty space behind the door.

I've thought about building some kind of frame or box to bolt under there (there are four nice bolts to attach to - probably the bolts are used to hang the generator).

Anyone have any other thoughts or ideas?

On my Lazy Daze, the ones without the generator option had a compartment as you describe. Mine, with the generator, is open at the bottom and the generator frame is bolted up to the van frame and camper floor. like it's hanging down. Theie is no compartment. The cover is a meshed screen instead of a solid door to allow airflow.

I have seen campers where more batteries and extra solar panels were installed with a large inverter instead of a generator. Since I don't run the generator just for A/C, all my needs would be met with a 6-battery, 450W solar and 2000 watt inverter set up.

I bet it would cost less than installing a new generator.

Oops... I totally misread your post. You're looking to build a compartment, not install a generator.
