Found new storage - under sofa!

Ok...I feel pretty stupid....we have had this trailer for 2 years...I have often commented on how all that space is wasted under the convertible sofa...why can't the panel lift up and I could slide stuff under....

Well a few weeks ago when I was getting ready for our trip I started messing with it again...and lo and behold if you lift up the seat slightly the panel lifts right up....

Wow! Lots of storage for cokes, bottled water, etc! Exactly what we were lacking in the 26bh...

I felt pretty stupid...so thought I would share if there are some more people like me!

That's funny! I use the space, but usually for things that don't get used too often as it can be a real pain in the rear to get in and out of it.

I didn't think we had any extra space (pulling from memory when we looked after picking up the tt new). I looked just now, and sure 'nuf, it's flat and no extra room. Maybe it's a Jay Flight G2 thing, or because it's a 29'? No extra room there on our though

I found mine on our first trip. Salesman told me it was not there when we were looking at the rig. Sticker says 50 lb limit but it is great for linens and stuff.

That was one of the things we liked about this Trailer was all of storage inside for Her and out side for me.

I've been using that space all season. In my trailer the only thing preventing you from accessing this space is a thin piece of wood.

We have the 22FB (and it's not the G2) and we use the space under our sofa for cases of pop and other electrical "toys". It is a bit difficult to put stuff under there, but you can do it.
