The blue thing across the front is padded and forms a small lip but the bottom of the space has indentations that run from the bottom up the back, that is the grooves you see in the picture. There are four indentations.

There does not seem to be any kind of retaining strap or holes for one.

I thought it might be a liquor cabinet?

A magazine rack is usually installed at that location. Andy

Nice idea a magazine rack, mine is by the toilet.
Well it should be anyway. Actually my A/S doesn't have that deal above the manual storage.

I have decided to try to use it as a glassware(plastic) holder. Now all I have to do is find some that fit!

With the same stuff you use to wash a car but also a step stool and a ladder to get to the top. Lots of water and lots of sweat. Takes approx 4 times as long to do as a car.

Re-Wash...

Hi Brett...
Mmmmm....Does your water pass through a water meter ??. Could be a little expensive at washing time...has your local car wash NOT got a kind of stage for you to stand on, whilst you preasure wash it, When I worked at a local undertakers...( Don't worry...I NEVER stayed there long...4 days...)...we used a thing on rails which sprayed water onto both sides and the roof, we had to walk the thing, only I did'nt know that one of the jets was bent, and used to get soaked, then I walked it from the other side, we put a detergent into the machines water tank, and off we went, real neat, and YES it did make a nice job too, saying that...there was about 2 inches of WAX on those vehicles...
I washed our 2 cars today, took me about half an hour, for the pair...LOL....little Ford Fiesta's...most likely FIT into your GAS TANKS....judging by the size of your lovely units...
Well take care now...B-Good...Chris.....

Pressure washer and Aluminum do not mix. I caved in a aluminum trunk on a MGA. I was water blasting the paint off and ruined the trunk lid. I would like everyone to know that this is the only mistake I have ever made.

Pressure Washer No-No

My little pressure washer blasts dirt and grime off everything it's pointed at. It would probably blast the sealant right out of the seams and cracks of my A/S whick I don't think is a good idea.

IMHO, Brian

Wash Room...!!

Good Evening Guys...
...Well, what started off as a "Q" about a little storage compartment, turned out to be a DEBATE, I love it ...LOL... well that little cupboard can be used to " KEEP a note book ", on the things N O T to do to a Ally-A/S or ally- R/V...
No.1. " Don't use a preasure washer on these type of vehicles ".
No.2. " Don't forget to put your BEER in the cooler ".
Well I don't know, I guess I learn something NEW again, all I can say is my cleaner can't be all that powerful, as I got NO damage at all, but my car is NOT made of ALLY, I only WISH it was as I got a whole family of " TIN WORM " come to stay, and are happily munching away at my wheel arches, and around the fuel filler cap, I keep spraying stuff on 'em...but those munching metal mites keep on going...( SIGH )....funny thing is, I can't even see 'em, but I know they are there 'cos they keep on making BUBBLES, bit like IGLOO 'S....lmao....
Ok guys...enjoy yourselves today, and remember a BAD word costs the same as a GOOD one...Chris.....

Lightbulb in response to original Q about "cubby"

As to a good use for this storage "cubby" by the door in our MH, I cut a 1/8" X 4" piece of lexan to cover side to side and mounted it to retain bug spray, lighter, and small flashlight. It is especially handy to have right next to the door.

We have not found anything that fits there yet, but we currently use it to store our WBCCI Badges, keys for the MH and extra battery disconnect keys. We currently refer to it a "The Mystery Spot"

Some day we will utilize it fully, so keep the cards and letters coming!

I would watch refernces to " mystery spot" sound too much like another spot we often hear about.

Hot Spot...

Alansd...& All...
Good evening to you, about this MYSTERY spot...I still have NO IDEA... !!! , now if it was in England, we would probably use it to put our homing pigeons in, or the chicken, for our fresh eggs, that is until they started to "poop" every where, then we would most likely do a R. Mc. D...
...well we quite like chicken nuggets...take along a few sesame buns...and...only Kidding Folks... ..., pop in a FISH tank, for your fresh morning KIPPERS, .
You know, I get to like this Forum better every time I visit... , I told you I DID'NT know a thing about AIRSTREAMS, but I sure are having GOOD time LEARNING...

OK Guys...Hear it is...It's to store your " STARS & STRIPES " in, I seen 'em on your homes in FLA:, well aint your A/S your HOME when you on VACATION...
<---oo--->_ ...Chris.....
