did it slide out from one of the storage hatches or underneath from the belly pan?

Could you be referring to this one in the MoHo forum?

This one was a slide out that came out of a storage compartment on the side. It looked like a drawer with sliders attached. It was a cool idea and one I'm working on , just trying to figure out the slider attachment.
Thanks

There a pic of the drawer..

Nice work on your drawer. I'm thinking about doing something similar with the rear compartment on our AS. The rear ones are a wider and deeper so I'm thinking about doing something with a steel slider and a plywood deck. I have a sliding deck in the back of my pickup so that's my inspiration.

I finished up drawer with tracks on the side to slide out. Works great and it's surprising how much 'stuff' can be arranged on it.
Sorry I have somehow lost the pictures of it, but will try to find them later.

Thanks Barry,
Pix would be great. The rear compartment opens downward so there is a lip at the bottom probably around 3" or so. I would need to build up a frame on the inside to mount the slides. Of course in doing this I loose some headspace. That would be the deciding factor. I keep a lot of "STUFF" in milkcrates. They are a nice size, readily available and fit. As I lose headspace they may no longer fit. So may need to re-think things a bit.

Your crate size will be determined by the measurement of you opening minus the thickness of your floor of your drawer. My actual AS door framing is 9-1/2" h -21" wide. My draw is 5-1/2"" high / 20" wide/30" deep. When hanging the glides I left 1/2" clearance all around.

Thanks Accipiter gentillis, you have given me some ideas to ponder. This just might be my up and coming project. I may have to go to bread trays instead of milk crates though.

There are several types of milk cartons available, maybe you could look into shortening the height of them.
