Hi, for those of you struggling with storage under the bed sliding out into the trailer when traveling here is what we did. We put two plastic bins in there measured to fit the space for width. On the rear one we drilled a hole in the bin and attached a short piece of rope. Then when we pushed it in under the bed it was a simple thing to retrieve the bin by pulling it out on the rope. The front can be blocked with a simple strap with a dome fastener on it. Screw one end of the strap to the floor then snap the dome up under the bed. We too added the bed skirt as shown in a previous photo done by Nancy.

Good luck everyone!

how about using a spring loaded shower curtain rod. then you could spring load it across the opening under the bed. or a bungy caught on both sides. or a drop bar with drop in holdies on both sides. or - - either should come out easily, wouldn't need it there except for travel.

A regular spring loaded curtain rod works, too. I have a couple of small ones and a couple of big ones. They help hold stuff in place as I bounce down the road.

They are small and easy to store.

Under bed storage

Jim solved our problem by making a dolly with casters (not swivel) that rolls under the bed. He used plywood for the top - put 4 casters under it and a handle on the front. I tied a cord to the handle and when we're traveling we just put a rubber door stop under the handle - everything stays put and now things are very easy to get to. Just a pull on the cord and everything is there. No more crawling under the bed to get needed items.

How much more?

Carol Upton. You and your Mods!! I have seen the one for the shelf above the bed on the Casita forum and copied it sorta.:hap2 . I don't need this one for the rolling storage tray but think it is so good that I had to say so. Now tell me what else you have done. I never saw this one on the Casita site so if it is not there it needs to be. Others could benefit.
