I like the large storage as well. I have another beneath the lower double size bunk that I use as you described. I just got tired of having to lift the mattress up to get to my storage there. Thanks for your response and safe traveling to you.

Just completed another drawer storage mod under the dinette benches, giving easier access to this space without pulling cushions and plywood up.https://goo.gl/search/Image

Great job! I was thinking of adding drawers or air assist. What size sliders did you use?

Can you tell me where you bought those slides and how much they cost?

Bought those from place in Birmingham called HGH Hardware. Pricey at $45.00 a pair but they are full extension heavy duty 24". You can get regular duty for half that, but since I built my drawers of 5/8" ply I felt I needed them.

What size did your drawers end up for under the bed?

I added sliding drawers on either side using existing wood paneling to create some usable storage. Wonder why Coleman didn't do this?
