Security safe installation?

While my coach is away at the service center, I have been thinking about several possible projects for it. One of which is installing a safe. Has anybody installed one? If so, what location?

I have seen a few new coaches with them in the back wall of the closet; which I really like. Not sure what I might be facing framing wise back there.

Coach better get back soon....my list is growing.

Wherever you put it be sure it's bolted/welded to a good framework and not just screwed to some wood.

Under the bed would be ideal, but the box under the bed slide on the carpet in the room.

When I get it back, I will do some looking at the closet more.

On a previous coach, ours was tucked under the captain chair and covered by the chair-skirt. It was also semi-recessed into the floor under the chair, so as to be almost invisible - it looked like part of the chair mechanism.
Cleaning the carpet for the first time is when I noticed it. Asked the dealer about it and he said: "Safe? What safe?" He'd been selling that model for several years, and I was evidently the first one to discover it. It was never mentioned in any of the literature, either. The downside is that the key was the round almost-universal "RV Key" that opens everything.

My point is that I know you're quite handy, Jake, and thought this might be a good DIY location to consider.

I already built mine in another place on this coach, but if I was to tell you where it was, then I'd have to....

...have to... LOL

I like the under chair idea. Will investigate further.
