We love that storage space in our 282DBHS. We use it to store folding tables, folding chairs, water containers, and finally our kayak. We can slide the kayak in through the doggy door in the back and then put our floor mats/rugs around the wall to keep it from sliding or marring the wood paneling. It's great. That doggy door and that storage is the best part of the rig, aside from the king sized bed.
