I like your idea on the compartment lid being hinged at the cross support. How much will the mattress hinder opening the compartment lid on the rear section? I've been thinking of cutting in an access into that area to avoid lifting the mattress during camping but still get access to the storage area.
Thanks for the ideas!

I like this idea, and will look into copying it when my trailer comes in. Thanks for posting this.

Instead of insulating the under side of the bed I installed some vents and a small fan to introduce warm interior air into that space. Solves the cold bed problem without having the possibility of condensation. Additionally, gives me a heated storage area for things that don't need to freeze (water, soda etc.) when winter camping.

Our 2014 28BHBE came with the wall installed as well. I wonder why some had them and some didn't? Since we had the wall already from factory, our bed is solid enough. I did have to replace one of the struts because it kept popping off, but that was easy.
