I don't have any pictures buy i have the Mor-Ryde slide out tray and it can be used from either side safely without pulling it out or pushing in to far as to blow out the door on the opposite side when the door is closed. This is easy to install and i reinstalled after Mor-Ryde installed it by mounting the tray on 2x6's installed edgeway as to give me room underneath the tray for more storage. Great product.

Slide-out trays take up too much room for me. I did make a slide out for my tool box though. I made the box and lagged it to the storage floor, box was from Sears, heavy duty slide rails were from Lowes.

I just added the Mor/ryde tray, 26" x 90", can be pulled out from either side and latches when pushed in so no problem of hitting the opposite side.

Since we are full time and are fully containerized under there we decided to skip the tray and use all our space. Now the new rig has plumbing under there that would make the tray we could use even smaller, but all our stuff still fits we just rearranged a little. Couldn't have done that with a tray, but I understand why it might be good for you.

You do lose some space with the tray but it does make life easier on the back and to get at the middle items. A lot depends on the type of camping you do and the gear you haul. The main thing is finding the right size storage containers to maximize the storage space, accessibility, and ease of use (clear ones so you can see what is in each is nice as well).

Tray installation fairly simple, just follow the instructions. I first installed on our 05' and deinstalled/reinstalled in our next two units as well.

I love that tool box slide, but full slides would never work for me. With the pipes and the things I stow, it would mean less space.
