Exterior access to storage under Queen

Not sure if this belongs here however I was wondering what one stores under the bed via the outside access door. Currently I have my cables, coleman stove and case of water and Soda. Is this a good place to store that type of stuff or will it damage the trailer in travel?

Any reasonable load under the queen will not damage the trailer.

On the road side, near the door, I keep all of the hookup items such as water hose, kneeling pad, wheel chocks, etc. The only real heavy thing I carry in that area is my auto transformer.

Under the bed goes folding table, patio rug, dutch oven, etc, etc.

I carry my water and soda up front, under the couch.

I also carry our folding table, small step ladder, a couple of extra pots, shoes, and whatever else I can't fit in our 27 FB. I don't have anything heavy and I think the access isn't easy so I don't put things in that area that I need a lot. Sounds like you have the "right stuff" in there. I have not had any problems with anything that has been stored in that compartment. I think you are just fine.

like when riding in a bus, the rear gets a lot of shaking. i'd move the soda to the center somewhere. in general, i like to put my heavy stuff midship if i can.

I thought storing anything in that area was just fine......UNTIL>>>>>>>>>

I even built some shelves to arrange that stuff on.....UNTIL

We hit a bump at a railroad crossing and I swear the unit went airborn. Slammed a mirror off the wall and mostly broke the bolt in the door and we could not open the door........Access was break a window or throught the hatch and come out under the bed.......All of that stuff was totally in the way and really hampered our entry.......So, break a window with the COST of fixing that or tear up a bunch of shelves............Took forever to clean out that access hatch area; but we did it.

So......dont let all that "stuff" get in the way.....Makes it really HARD for that access when you need it........God bless.......Dennis

My thanks to all. I believe I will move the soda and the water and look for other things to store there in their place
