The Bigfoot 2500 9.6 does have one big downside, no pantry for all the canned food essentials. So I got to looking around and figured the clothes closet was way too tall for any of my things so modding away I went. I removed the cedar floor in the clothes closet, added reinforcing 1"X 4" fir struts underneath to screw the sliding basket too. Then I replaced the cedar floor, added a second floor above the basket for shoes and stuff and now I have a sliding canned food pantry. You can get the sliding basket from Camping World for around $13.00 and the rest of the mods are easy.
I sure like having a place for my canned food without having the cans bang all around.

Nah, that's not all I eat. I usually have some spinach, broccoli, califlower, and turnips to go with the beans. Weird though, I usually pull into a full campground and have to squeeze into some small spot. Then the next day everyone takes off and I have the campground all to myself, go figure????

I get really lonely at night, will someone please be my campfire buddy?

All kidding aside, the sliding tray does work really well and I'm sure it can be adapted to many campers.
Hope to be camping next to you on my next trip!
