Shower seating

My shower has a large built in seat. It seems a waste of interior space. Does any one know if anything is located within the hump?

In my case, the wheel well is under it...but you're on a corner. So if there are no outside connectors there, like water, electrical, etc. it should be hollow.

If it is like my 2002 19' Bambi (which looks identical), there is nothing but some wiring in that space. I added a large screw-in deck plate (like this: BECKSON MARINE 8" Smooth Screw-In Deck Plate, 10-1/8" Flange, 8-1/2" Cutout, Black/Clear | West Marine ) to a vertical face of the hump (the one that faces left in your picture). Installed carefully, the plate is waterproof and gives access to what is, otherwise, empty.

Just curious, what would one store in this location? It seems like with a 10" opening, size might be a restriction. Also, items less than 10" wide (or in diameter) might move around and get lost, or be difficult to retrieve.

Don't mean to sound negative; I'm just trying to figure out how this unused storage area could best be used...

We often have our heavy hiking boots there. My wife's go in easily, mine scrape a bit. Guess who has the bigger feet.

Adding the access is just one of many ways I have expanded storage in our little trailer. Has adding the deck plate made a great difference? No, other than also giving me a way to check on any leakage.

Anything that will fit. A stubby AR and a thousand rounds of ammo, emergency rations and your basic anti-zombi kit should all fit just fine. I just happen to have a couple of locking marine hatches left over from a build. I think one of them will fit just fine. They are 12X8, waterproof and lockable.
