Added 3-drawer cubby in under-seat compartment

I took the plunge and cut a hole in the under-seat compartment wall (passenger side) and installed a custom built 3-drawer cubby.  The drawers were purchased on the internet, white plexiglass, dimensions 12x16x2 inches.

Wow, well done

I can't do it because I have two water tanks, but in case others want one, do you have a link to it? Amazon?

Cubby is home-made

I built the box myself, and for the shelves I bought trays on Amazon:

Nicely done!

Is that the 13' big-bed?

Cubby added to 13-foot big-bed

Yes, correct.  With a single water tank, so plenty of spare space in the passenger-side under-seat compartment.

Nice idea!

Oh, I like this idea.  Easier then lifting up the cushions to use the space underneath.  What about mildew?  I find the storage spaces don't have much ventilation (if any) and when I put a "Damp Rid" container in there that seems to collect a lot of water.

Cubby is ventilated from the front

I haven't noticed dampness or mildew in the storage spaces, in the 9 months since we picked up our Scamp at the factory.  Regardless, the design of the cubby isolates/separates the drawer contents from the storage-space air -- the openings in the cubby are into the living space.

Wow!

Love those drawers! Great idea, but I would be terrified to cut the fiberglass! Very brave!
