Dutch Star 4369 inside storage question

We currently have a Tiffin Phaeton 40IH, but have had the Dutch Star 4369 in the backs of our minds for about a year now. We went to look at them last weekend, and were concerned about the storage space for appliances. Our Phaeton has compartments above the seating area that are a foot + tall. We have the crockpot, toaster, coffee pot, etc. up there. In the 4369, those cupboards are too short for those appliances. For you owners of the 4369, where do you keep your appliances?

For the record, the salesman showed us a 4325 (new for 2023) - they have 2 pantries! And 1 would be great for appliances. We are actually considering the 4325 now, but my wife sure does like the bathroom in the 4369!

Thanks for your input,

The shelves in the pantry are adjustable. We keep the large appliances on the bottom shelf. Our coffee pot and air fryer stay on the counter top and have never moved. The 4325 is a nice floor plan and would give you twice the pantry storage for large items on the bottom shelf. We would may have chosen the 4325 if were available in 2022.

Another thing we did to help with storage was special ordered the cabinets above the buffet to extend the same depth as the cabinets above the theater seating. This is were we store the dishes, otherwise it is not deep enough for dinner plates.

On our 2017 4369 I put shelves in the right hand wardrobe closet in the bedroom. Left hand closet for me, bath closet for wife.

On both my 2014 DS and 2019 DS, the cabinet under the sink has a large slide out drawer. Our 2019, they put two baskets in there for trash. I removed the baskets, and we place the toaster, pots, and large nesting bowls in that tray. The only caveat, many don't like to lose that storage if they have pets.

Our crockpot fits in the bottom pantry drawer

We put most of the small appliances in the pantry (after changing drawer height) and under the dinette seats. For the big air fryer we put it in the rear wall closet while driving.

We are not full timers but I can't imagine running out of storage space on our 4369.

Thank you for you comments - I appreciate it. Although the 4369 would obviously work, we've opted for the 4325. I'm looking forward to be part of the Dutch Star family! Thanks again.
