Ahh so it sounds like you may have room to put a drawer up above the rails.

1- I determined the drawer size and ordered a cabinet door that matches the interior woodwork from Trekwood. I found a door that would fit closest to the size drawer I wanted. then, I built the drawer "box" out of plywood. I attached the cabinet door to the drawer box to create the completed drawer.

2- I cut the hole in the face of the bed. I added the supports that the drawer glides would be mounted to under the bed.

3- I added the full extension drawer glides to the drawer and to the supports under the bed.

4- I slid the drawer into place.

I hope this helps! Its the steps in basic form.

That is perfect! Thanks for the directions. I see a project getting done this spring when I can get to the camper. Will probably do more than one. LOL

Added central vac to the trailer today. Mounted it under the bed. The hose reaches the entire trailer. I had to add an outlet for the vac to plug into.

Love the central hvac modification. Was thinking of possibly putting it in the middle of the trailer as many trailers have the refrigerator next to the wall that houses the shower bath tub. I'm thinking this might be a good place to put it without taking up space under the master bed storage.. Does anybody know the clearance Under or behind the tub against the wall? Wondering if I can squeeze it in underneath the corner of the bath tub so that the port is out in the kitchen area.

cmerkert,
Not sure on the layout of your trailer but from the pics and the size of the vac it might fit under the vanity in the bath.
Greg,
Nice mods
How did you attach the wire shelves in your wardrobe? I need to make some pantry modifications on my Cougar and the wire shelves might work better than wood.

The vac definitely seems like it would fit in the vanity. It is about 14” high and maybe 6-7” square. The only advice is that I wouldn’t want the hose to plug into the receptacle where it has to turn a lot of corners. The hose will rub and scratch the finish on the doorways, cabinets etc. Where I located it u dr the bed, the hose “path” would be pretty unobstructed for the majority of the trailer.

To mount the shelves, I used prefinished cove molding to create a ledge. I applied construction adhesive (Liquid Nails) to the back of the molding, pressed it in place, and used my small brad nailer to hold it. Then I placed the shelves on top of the molding.
Between the small brads and the adhesive, it is very solid. I did the same in my last camper and they were still solidly in place 6 years after when I traded it in.

Greg,
Thank You.On the our Cougar the pantry faces forward and factory shelf supports are plastic adjustable. I don't need them to be adjustable and was going to do 1'x2' supports for the pantry shelves. Then I was going to put a 1/4 round on the front lip of the shelves to help keep items on the shelf. Wire looks like it might be a better option I have some laying around from my garage project.

That sounds like a good idea! My last camper I used prefinished shelving that happened to match the stain color near perfectly. I couldn’t find a color match for my new Premier so I went with the beige wire shelving instead.
