It's getting a little harder these days, bending down, twisting around, crawling in and out of my pass-through storage bay, and I've been considering something to make the work a little easier - especially now that I've acquired a new, portable Dometic fridge (weighing 60 pounds)...not a pretty sight, my getting in there without the ease of a sliding tray to make the job so much more convenient...

I know little about them, brands and the like... can anyone offer some perspective? Sure would be appreciated! Thanks!

I Built my own. 48" full extension drawer guides are expensive, but, I only had to buy them once.

I've thought about that myself. There are long sliding extensions available for a variety of applications.
The thing that stopped me was the reduction in usable space it would bring. The storage bay door is smaller than the compartment and the drawer has to fit that opening. You lose a lot of storage area.

Here's my solution -- I'm 6'3" and DW is 5 feet tall. If an object involves reaching up to get it, I do it. If the object involves crouching, she does it. [emoticon]

I had a Winnebago Luxor 20+ years ago that had 3 of those sliding trays. Sold it and got a Monaco awhile back and no trays. You can buy them, not cheap but available and I intend to make the purchase. I don't remember the brand name.

Our current coach has dual direction slides in both pass-through bays. They are great!! I'm planning on getting a tray for my pickup truck.

They look nice and handy. Now, I'm thinking of buying one from them.

that does concern me, as things re already packed pretty tight in there... have only one pass-thru, and of course, larger stuff is in there... might have to consider re-working storage if I move forward with the tray

Joey Bed....Is the name of one Brand,
You get everything except the plywood floor
You assemble it to the width you need for your compartment
I built my own for my champion 3200 inverter generator, using heavy duty slides I purchased from Amazon
In the past 12 years, I've done this for 3 Class A we owned
The first time I bought the slides from a wood working supplier,, after that from Amazon , but same brand heavy duty pantry slides, over $100 for the slides 3 section full extension 26 inches IIRC , the longer slides the higher the price, 8ft slides that go 4ft either way for pass thru compartment install, are going to be big bucks


I can explain it to you.
But I Can Not understand it for you !
