Add a storage compartment door to 1976 A/S

My 1976 31' center bath A/S has the a storage compartment on the drivers side in the back that opens under the twin bed. I have a storage door with frame and lock from another 1976 A/S that was for the refrigerator. Little larger than the standard storage door. I am thinking about adding this door on the passenger side in the back that would open under the twin bed on this side. I do not have the original heater vent that used to run under this side so I have a lot of good storage space going to waste. I would need to modify the slide in storage tray from the inside to free up some space as well. But I would still be able to use trays that are not as deep. Since the door is taller in height I would probably place the bottom of the frame at the floor level to make for a good fit. All of my measurements work out and I would not be cutting any side frames that may effect the structure.

Has anyone done anything like this.
