I didn't notice that until I found a picture of it on the 2015 models. It's a great point, seems Jayco could have easily provided this bit of extra storage. Did you relocate your spare tire to the right slightly covering the ladder to achieve this mod? Spare looks centered of the outside shower and ladder with little or no room.
Other thing I find odd is there is no locking access panel protecting the fresh water access. (maybe I'm just not seeing it)?
