Byron thanks for blazing the trail you gave me the motivation. I lucked out and scored some 5/8" laminated plywood from a building recycle center. Brown laminate on the outside and simulated wood grain on the inside.

I was not able to find Undermount sliders in out little town so I had to use 22" bottom mount slider which meant I had to add a little additional framing and I lost about a 1 1/2" in the width of the drawer.

But it came out pretty nice.

Thanks

Stan I think some wood working skills may be required and wood working tools like a table saw, radial arm saw.

I would suggest you go with a bed lift system where no wood working skills are required it's just a matter of installing the kit.

Wow! Great job. We use our drawers for clothes hampers, but no telling what else you can store in there. Is your TT a Coleman? Your pics look just like mine. Again, great job.

Stay, he is correct in stating that some woodworking skills are helpful, and the lifts in the video are an alternative. However, if you fell compelled to pursue the drawers, I will be glad to help you through it in the form of drawings, dimensions and parts.

Yes, it's a 2017 Coleman 300tq Toy Hauler. They do look very similar which made your pictures very helpful.
