More outside access?

I have the jflight 31bhds.
I only have the large area across the front so
wouldnt it be great to have more outside access?
I think it would be great to have access into the dinette storage from the outside.
how hard would it be to get doors and make it work?

If at a seasonal site and trailer can be in a fixed postion for many years, one can install a high level deck and its awning would be the deck's roof. If wondering, that's how we added "more space" at my seasonal camp site. re:

Is this something you had in mind?

Sounds like something like removing the Windows on your slide and perhaps installing a "light weight" RV Sliding door. Same sliding door they install on "mobile park" RV trailers. Or, perhaps installing 2 x large swing out doors - that some have on their Toy Hauler sides. Or, a combo upgrade of each????

If you take a few pictures of your TT's outer slide and take the pictures to a few of your local welding shops, I wonder if they can give you some ideas. For example, remoing your slide's factory windows and replace with something different. Might be worth asking them for a few good ideas....

sorry man you are not following me
you know the storage area under your dinette?
i want to be able to get to it from the outside.then i wouldnt have to go inside to get my grill and other stuff
it just seems smart to add extra storage doors on the outside

I have the same Jayco as you do Robert and have wondered the same thing. I have not tried the mod yet because I do not think it is possible to put in a big enough door without removing some of the vertical studs that support the dinette seats. It just does not seem worth the effort to me.

If you decide to put a door in, please post what you did. I would be very interested.
