If you guys have seen that movie 'meet the Fockers' With Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman, (and if you haven't, you should) I think that cubbie would make a pretty cool spy bunk like the ex-CIA dad had under his Class A motorhome. There has to be a cool use for that area... tight quarters though..

So wife and I just put a laundry basket that fits in the odd shape and toss dirty clothes in it. But what sucks is when my son is laying on the bed he either has to get out or roll over to the side to lift it up so the clothes end up in the corner on the floor. That's why I would like to put the door in the front so we can toss them from the front and when we get home we only have to reach in there once to clean out the clothes.

Hey Olbrier, if you can make a door that somewhat matches the cabinets I would buy one off you. I could probably make one if I can find the right materials. I just don't know where I can go to buy similar laminated wood that I can make a frame of the door. Then I could use the panel I cut out of the front for the door. Wait maybe I could just make my own now that I'm thinking about it...hmmm?
Making a matching door would be no fun. Making many would be easier. I had planned on making making something attractive enough but not attempting to match the existing. Ordering one that matches would be far cheaper than having a single door made.

Don't the newer Jaycos have the hydraulic cylinder lifters? Our 2011 does and it is actually pretty easy to open and access.

Under the queen bed they do, this is that storage area under the bunk beds.

I would love to put an access door in for the under bunk storage area. I haven't seen any posts here describing how you would mount a flat door to a curved surface though. Anyone have a solution?

I'm interested in seeing how this turns out. My 23MBH has very little outside storage and the only place to store things like the BBQ and lanterns is under the rear bunk. I dread having to get into there every time we go camping and putting an exterior access door wouldn't be large enough. So I to am planning on putting one large door on the inside to access that space easier. I work for a cabinet door manufacturer so making matching doors is no problem for me and I have plans for other storage areas inside that will require doors as well. Hopefully if and when I do these mods I will post pictures of what I've done.

Just wondering if you ended up doing this? Trying to brainstorm some ideas. Thanks!

The cabinet door is still not installed, it is laying on the bunk. I ended up buying a new house about the time the door came in so this project got moved down pretty far on my honey do list. Haha. Hopefully I get it done in the next week or two and I will post pictures.

I think a long drawer on rollers or casters to pull it out would be my preference. I'd rather access the stuff waaaaaaay in the back by NOT getting in the bunk area to get it. A simple latch could hold it closed, and it could ride on the tile floor... no need for drawer guides. If needed when hauling bikes or large items, pull it out and set it in the garage, or even on the bunk for use after arrival at camp.
