Interior Storage FC 28FB

Wife and I are looking at a 2018 FC 28FB Queen. One thing she noticed is that it does not have a pullout food pantry in the galley as some other models do. (I believe it was the 25's in which we saw the pantry)


For those who have the 28 footer, where/how do you store food supplies and do you find the storage sufficient (realizing how subjective the latter question is).


Thanks in advance.

Our 27 foot also has the pull out pantry with the micro wave.

Great question. We spent >2 years deciding between a 30, 25, or 28. Ended up with the 28 RBQ. No regrets - absolutely perfect for us. Extra cabinets above dinette are used plus additional shelves easily added to the hall closet.

I guess the fc is different than the Globetrotter. We have a pull out pantry and a pull out microwave. Maybee you could modify it or reduce the size of the closet and make a large pantry.



Unless you plan to live in it full time we find we have enough storage.

We just bought an interstate nineteen Coach and I have no idea where to keep things. Does anyone have hints or experience they’d share? For example the sheet and blanket take up an entire upper storage cabinet!

Interior Storage FC 28FB

We had a 25 That we traded for a 28 International. The interior storage compartment behind the couch is much more useful than the roll out pantry that we had in the 25. We bought 4 square wire baskets to fit in the compartment to keep things organized.

Do you mean the storage behind the front "L" couch? Hadn't thought about that. In fact, when I saw it I wondered what would fit there.

Thanks for the tip.

Any other significant differences you enjoy?

We have a 2018 28 RB queen. I don't think they make a FB in the 28. Anyway, we store most food in the two cabinets over the dinette. Heavy items like canned good are in the floor level shallow cabinet under the microwave (or oven). I store bottled or canned drinks under the forward dinette bench in an old soft drink crate with dividers. As someone else mentioned, the hall closet can easily have shelves added for pantry space, we just have not needed it. We love our 28 floorplan.

Agree- 28 is a rear bed AS...the 27', is actually 28' long...confusion. We store our food in cupboards above the dinette, but heavy cans goods we store in one of the slider containers under the couch. We don't use much canned food anyway; mostly packaged, frozen, or fresh. We also store the liquor and wine below the dinette in a basket. We carry a 3 gal fresh water container with manual pump for drinking/coffee, which we leave on the floor in the Apex of the L-couch or move under dinette for travel. We have twin; we have shelves in both closets at foot of beds, and just use hanging closet for coats and extra storage...lots of room in the 28. The 27' has more closet space mid ship, but, like the 25', does not have the seating separation for dinning with the separate couch, nor the extra cabinets above the dinette. Everyone has a favorite!

We store extra blankets behind the couch...we store the canned food and other "stuff" under the couch in the plastic slide out containers..
