Mystery Cavity........

In my 1973 Argosy 26' twin there is a mystery section that
appears to be unused.

It is above the fridge and adjoining cabinet/closet. There is a boxed in space of 64" x 11" x 7" that is hollow and unused.

Seems a waste of possible storage area. Any ideas what is
behind this mystery cavity?

The area is below the upper cabinets and behind the shelf
above the fridge and closet.

I have mystery cavities in my Bambi. I think it is just unused space which was easier to box over than create a compartment out of. I'm thinking about cutting one of them out to make more space but haven't done it yet.

If it were a ship it would be a void. It is easier for the manufacture to box over than do extra design and construction to make them useable. One of the fun things about a rebuild, restore, or upgrade of a boat or trailer is finding all the unused space and making it available.

Thanks Jim

It is most likley the dead space from the refrigerator vent. It gets rather warm in that space so I wouldn't put my candy bars in there if you know what I mean.

There are lots of dead spaces in even our current Airstream. Lots of behind the scenes stuff that is blocked off by these same types of things. If you look closely, you can most likely reclaim some space by adjusting the housings. We have this under our fridge, under the sofa and other places as well.

Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form. -NY Times 11/91
