Under Stove storage
Under our stove we have two pull out drawers for canned goods, basically a little pantry. It allows Ginny to see all the canned goods without wondering what's on the back of a shelve. These drawers are capable of storing 20-or so cans. This compartment has a front door.

Below the canned goods drawers we have a plastic container that holds root vegetables. There's also room beside the container for a bottle of maple syrup.

Beside our little pantry at floor level is our propane heater. Above the heater is a fiberglass lined, gel coated surfaced, compartment with a door. We use this for bread and baked items. The rear top part of this compartment contain 8-4oz. mylar packets of smoked salmon. Though we have a small fridge we carry an ample supply of salmon. It keeps for years and requires no refrigeration.

We have subdivided most of our storage areas to give everything a place.

Post 53 shows the pantry. It consists of 4 plastic trays screwed to piece of 1/4 inch plywood. The slide on two wooden rails screwed to the walls of the sides of the opening. They do not fall out when pulled forward. I could get more pictures at a later date if you want. If you look thru this thread you'll see probably 30-50 plastic Walmart boxes in our trailer.

All our original cabinet doors have been replaced with birch-faced doors.

As well as all our added cabinets, added drawers and added shelves we also have 5 under trailer boxes.

Thanks for the kind words.

Lots of mods on the Casita forum that address this issue and the measurements etc would be Casita specific :)

There are several ideas here (on Casita Club):
Shelf Under The Galley Sink - Casita Trailer Modifications Forum - The Casita Club Forums

We had a Freedom for 8 years - loved that little trailer.
