outside sliding storage drawers

Just finished installing a outside sliding storage drawer. Pulls out 54 inches from the edge of the door and sure makes it easy to pull stuff out of storage. Kits available from camping world; I got mine direct from Stromberg-Carlson. Easy to install, and you can size to fit your rig requirements.

I don't remember who I got the first one from but it came in pieces and I had to put it together. Not too hard. The one we have now came from Moreryde and came fully assembled a much better deal. They have lots of sizes.

Probably something I should be doing in the next couple of months.

I also have the drawer from MOR/ryde...sure helps keeping that massive basement organized. Having it slide out in both directions is quite a back saver too!

Do you lose significant space with them installed or does the convienance make up for the lost space?
Thanks,
Mike

Would someone post a picture?

I'm trying to picture this. I think I've seen these but don't know which one. There's a style that puts sliding storage trays on either side of the underside spare tire carrier, and there's another style that is mounted inside the Monty basement where the items sit on the drawer, then instead of having to reach in get your stuff you use the drawers to slide the contents out making it easier to retrieve stuff. This might slightly increase the height of the basement floor but the tradeoff in convenience would certainly allay that (I think that's what pineranch alludes to.

For the outside one I hope it can be locked. For the inside the basement one, I hope it can support lots of weight (several hundred pounds) and in itself doesn't weigh so much. I'll have to go search the internet. I'm not having a problem retrieving stuff since our outing frequency is so low right now, but I can certainly see for more frequent use owners this is a great idea.

On Edit: Wow, I found these pretty quick, but you get the idea:
