Making better use of space

All RV's I've ever owned have had unused nooks and crannies that could have been better utilized. Space being at a premium no matter what size your unit is.
I've added a full length drawer in the Galley next to the sink that is great for those long BBQ tools.
Also added a drawer in the bathroom cabinet.

I've shown you mine, now show me yours!

Yes, I have to get busy doing the same. We had a large tent trailer when the kids were with us. I was able to create more storage with a cabinet that spanned the galley. Of course it had to be taken down when the trailer was folded. Now our 24' Trade Wind has absolutely NO drawers. One place that I can create a drawer cabinet is on the right side of the galley. There is a two foot square seat between it and the gaucho. All we use that for (under the seat) is to store blankets and large pans. Lynn isn't so sure that converting that into drawer space would be wise as it may be awkward to slide onto the gaucho with the table deployed. Also the furnace under the sink has been removed leaving a sizable space waiting for development as storage.

Neil lives in snow country. I also wonder what he's using for heat.

Very nice!

You are very lucky that you can do things like make drawers. My husband can do a lot of things very well as long as it does not involve wood, so drawers for the AS are out.

Great ideas though and thanks for the pictures!
