DS 3736 Pantry Added

Saw a recent post asking about adding a Pantry, completed a pantry addition about a month ago. Our 2015 DS had an 8.25” board filling slot next to fridge. I was able to slide the fridge to right about 1/4” for more clearance and used the board as pantry front. This shorter DS is storage challenged so this should be a great improvement. The pantry slide-out hardware is rated at 275lbs. I also added a slide/lock just below the handle after photo.

Nice job!

Even in a 40' we're always looking to maximize even the smallest spaces.

That looks great. Did you put tracks on the bottom or sides?

More Pantry Install info

The full-extension pantry hardware mounts to floor/ceiling. Drawer boxes come as a kit and easily assemble. Drawer Boxes are held in place by a 1/2” plywood rectangle I fabricated. A quality stud-finder located the steel ceiling joist. One challenge was getting the units height just right to fit into the hardware mounted on floor/ceiling. First step was pulling fridge out and seeing what I had to work with. I really couldn’t have pulled this off if rig was stored off-site (must have walked between shop & coach 50 times). Sorry these pics came out sideways…
