Much Improved!

Thanks for all of the information, logic, pictures, and product recommendations.

I have done some shift things and this is much more to our liking.

1-put the sewer connection L and extra hose/fittings in the back bumper.
2-got a nice collapsible crate at Costco for the Electric cord and surge protector. The crate collapses nearly flat when empty, so it will be able to be stashed easily.
3-took the advice and put curbside items in that locker. Moved the bag chairs there.
4-Got one of those water hoses you all recommended. Very much smaller and easier to manage. That is in the street side compartment, along with the water filter and the "L". I found some great containers at WalMart that are Sterilite with lids. 16 ⅞ x 11 ˝ x 9 ⅜. 20 Quart size. (SKU 73149-18448). This fit perfectly in the street side storage compartment, with extra room still on top. I went and got another that I will use for the cable and satellite wire, and also the dog bones. (picture shows the old container on its side). This will still allow room for the satellite stand, and for the tow mirrors.

We also have a 27' Classic, 2007, very highly customized. Floor level 120 outlets in toilet area is helpful.

An early storage add-on was a full width 4" black ABS tube with screw on access caps on both sides, with pull strings where needed to retrieve contents. It fits aft of the rear axle.

If doing this again I'd use 6" not 4" tubing.

Contents: a partially collapsed rain gutter for the sewer line, fishing poles and garden hose hose for gray water, etc.

This past year we upgraded to 16" wheels from 15".

side storage pass thru?

I'm in the process of modifying the interior to create an access door to the forward storage bay. This is the wall beneath the night stand in the middle. This still doesn't necessarily solve outside access, but at least will allow me better use of the large storage space there. I commonly keep lighter bulkier things there including: couple folding chairs, couple camping chairs, collapsible ladder, 5 gallon portable water tote, horseshoe gameset, 2 burner portable stove. There's still space for more things.

Of interesting note, this space is probably the gentlest riding storage spot in the trailer. Probably also due to my gentle riding tow vehicle. I keep a traditional spring loaded mouse trap here just in case. I've gone probably 500 miles, and its never tripped.

Cut made. No turning back:

I've considered expanding the curb side storage. I rarely use the interior underbed twin storage. Would be much better space utilization to allow a greater portion, if not all of it to outside storage.
We were out at the trailer today, and are considering expanding the curb side storage to make an inside/outside pass thru.

We would like a bit more outside-accessible storage if we can do that without a huge tear-out project.

Today we unscrewed the 6 white screws in the exterior compartment holding the white partition board in.

Then it got really HOT so we decided enough for today.

We are curious if you may know how this all assembles together.

If the platform that is under the mattress is unscrewed, will this unfasten that white partition board? We are thinking we may be able to replace the white partition board with some cut to fit bracing pieces to maintain structure but open things up between the exterior compartment and the under bed storage.

We haven't gotten far enough into the exploratory phase to properly assess.

Wondering what anyone knows about this, or has anyone already done something similar?

Your two side storage areas are quite a bit deeper than ours. We have a 2017 FC FBT. Did you modify yours?
