Under-bed storage access mods

I'm curious to hear from those who have created access doors to the under-bed storage areas in their TT. I have a 174BH and want to be able to get at the storage area under the Queen bed and the bottom bunk beds without raising the beds. It seems in the frame design it would be fairly easy to cut out a rectangular access panel and create a small door for this purpose, but I would like to see what other people have done (step-by-step instructions would be great!).

Thanks!

I didn’t make one for storage access, but I did modify mine for a different reason. When camping in very cold temperatures we noticed condensation building up under the bed storage area from the temperature difference between the floor under the bed and the ambient/heated air inside the camper. I decided airflow was needed so I cut out 4 large rectangular holes in the thin bed base paneling (2 on the side and 2 on the front) and used residential soffit vents to cover the holes and look nice. I then cut a small access hole in the opposite corner by the headboard shelf. I ran a small Vornado tower fan just inside the opening I’d made and turned it on. It kept constant airflow under the bed pulling in warm air and pushing the cold air out of the vents I’d cut in. It kept our storage nice and dry and the bed warmer too.
Not quite what you were asking about but shows anything is possible if you think outside the box.
