Question about cabinets

I have a 13 foot boler where the fiberglass enclosure for the sink and stove has doors for shelves but there is nothing installed. It's just one big void underneath. My question is how are the shelves in your cabinets attached? Are they secured to the fiberglass floor? I assume here is some way you can access the plumbing, gas and electrical lines. Are the shelves enclosed, open, etc? Do you remove the fridge/Icebox and then the shelves working your way to the plumbing if you need to make repairs? Pictures and/or drawings would be helpful.

more info needed

Can you post a pic?

I can't be certain but under the counter they don't normally have shelves.

Usually there's the furnace under the sink, an access cabinet for the plumbing/electrical and the space for the fridge.

I got my74 boler in original condition years ago.
The counter had a furnace, a little fridge, sink, 2 burner stove mounted and a silverware drawer.
The electrial came in the side to a receptical box and was
spliced out to the fluorescent and fridge no fuses.
The propane for the appliances ran along the frame and was spliced up through the floor at the different locations.
The only "shelf" was the top of the wheelwell.
Hope this helps.
Fred

This is what I have for the cabinet. The trailer never had a furnace and the opening to the right is where the icebox used to be (it was broken).

I need to figure out how to put shelves/drawers into the space behind the left 3 openings which have doors (1 door removed).

On my Trillium 4500, (which has the furnace opposite to the kitchen) The shelf sits on the wheel well. It looks like the top of your wheel well is flat. That could work for you.

Dave, any chance of a picture? It would be helpful. At this point I am at the "what can I do" stage so any examples are welcome.

Alex, our 1974 Boler 13 had space similar to yours to the left of the fridge. I moved all electrical components to the bench to the left of the kitchenette and also removed the furnace, leaving storage space under the sink. Our "storage compartment" under the sink had two equal sized doors (left and right) after removing the furnace which was on the left.

What do you have planned for the icebox location?
If a fridge or icebox I would source and temp install to get
an idea of space left for shelves.
Our doors are a different size from yours. We place a 5 gallon drinking water container on the wheelwell and a small trash can to the right. The rest of the space is occupied by incidentals. Works well for us that way.
But for a shelf all I really see working is a piece of ply attached to
the top of the well. The space is so small and odd shaped that putting any type of shelf in there cuts down on what can be put in there.

Yours is a rather unusual arrangement of openings. On Scamps without a furnace under the sink, there are two matching narrow tall doors.

Looking at yours, Iím wondering if the flat top of the wheel well lines up with the horizontal strip between the two smaller openings on the right. That would be about the right height for a shelf and the wheel well and divider strip could be attachment points. Epoxy tabs to the inside of the cabinet and shell for support. That would give a large, uninterrupted horizontal surface that could be further organized with bins.

On the fridge side (assuming youíre not going to replace the fridge) you might epoxy in a couple of vertical posts on the left and furring strips on the right to support an adjustable shelf system.

Just thinking out loudÖ Mine has an icebox on the right snd a furnace on the left, leaving an odd-shaped space between in which we stow our cookware and not much else.
