Storage under Couch 31FS and others

I know I am slow, but on the last trip across country we realized how much storage space is under our fold down couch. This is now our storage place for drinks and other things we get into only occasionally. There is a lot of space there and it's not hard to access. I am typing this for any that might not have realized it as well...

We've used that space for a lot of things.
But do any folks here have suggestions for how to access the area any easier?
We have to jackknife the couch, get on our knees, hold up the swinging panel across the front, and then reach in to pull things out.

If anybody has done some mods or has ideas on how to make access easier, we'd appreciate seeing and hearing about them. Thanks.

I think there was a recent thread on a mod for this, which I was hoping to get to at some point. They had removed the front panel I believe, and installed hinges so the panel just lifted up. Anybody else remember this, or was I dreaming of a solution lol!!

About that difficult couch..On our 2015 Greyhawk 29mv I removed the end caps on each end of the couch...unscrewed panel behind driver....panel against dinette just slides out of bracket..Wow, now the couch is way easier to lift...Those upholstered panels do absolutely nothing but bind the couch too tight....just like the lousy raised end panels sticking up on the ends of our dinette cushions and make sitting there painful...Dumb engineering...
And bonus...now couch has more room.

Shakedown St, I remember reading the same thing and I actually did that in my View before i traded it in. But that was because the drawer under the sofa had been removed for other reasons a LONG time ago.

StevWb, the panel beside the dinnette cusion ripped off on mine when someone stepped on it to climb into the bunk. BTW it is only held on by three screws.

We just discovered that extra room ourselves. I stuck my crock pot in it cause it can only be used when we are at a hook up cg and it's a big space hog!

Our 2004 Granite Ridge has drawers under the couch too. I found them about a week ago while looking for places that mice could come in through.
In my defense we just bought the thing in May.
