16' under bed storage containers dimensions

Hi all,

I bought a used 16', but the under bed plastic storage containers qty. 4 are missing.

Can someone post the dimensions? I want to try to go to Target or Walmart and purchase some.

Thanks.

Do not have my camper close by to check size of my containers. I measured inside dimension of storage area & purchased containers at Office Depot that works perfectly. Sturdy containers a little pricey but work great.

Those from Amazon should work fine, with room to spare. You can also purchase 4 of the smaller bins for more storage. In my Bambi there is enough room for all eight bins, plus room for a bucket (to stash cleaning supplies inside), a collapsible step stool, a leveling chock, camp stove and odds and ends.

All the best

Do you say place your black flush hose in a small bin and your drinking in a separate small bin?

Also check into buss pans like they use in restaurants. You can get them at Sam's club and they are much heavier than the stock ones. I use them to change oil but they are probably the right size for the boxes you need.

In regards to your question of separating the black water hose from the drinking water hose. After we use the black water hose, we coil it up and screw one end to the other, closing the ends together. We do the same with the drinking water hose. Since each hose is closed in onto itself we do not have to worry about contamination if the two hoses touch. I use twist ties to secure each hose to keep them tidy and stow them in a bin. Then, if we are heading for a dump station I will pack to cargo storage so that the bin with the hoses in to top and ready to go.

Opps. That last sentence should have been written as, "Then, if we are heading for a dump station I will pack the cargo storage so that the bin with the hoses are on top and ready to go." So we pull out the hose bin, grab gloves and the slinky elbow stowed in the rear bumper, and we are ready to dump and pull forward for fresh water. We stow the gloves and the slinky elbow in the bumper so it will be away from anything that needs to be sanitary.

I hope this description helps in your wrapping your head around the details. We have had our Bambi only since July, but we went on a three week road trip and feel pretty broken in. Through the helpful advice from other Forum writers, our maiden voyage was trouble free.
