Default Here's a storage Idea.

We usually bring an ice chest along when camping, but I got tired of hiding it from the sun. I sometimes would also bring the ice chest inside the trailer, just to make the ice last as long as possible; but it was kinda in the way. So I figured I could utilize the empty space under the dinette couch. I bought a Coleman ice chest that fits in there just right. I put some insulation around the cooler in the compartment to insulate it a little. Now I don't have to be moving the ice chest around, and the ice lasts longer, Yay!!
I call it a modification because I did have to relocate the hinges in order to get the cooler to fit in there. Here are a few pictures on my mod.
ps, I don't know why the pictures are being uploaded upside down and/or sideways.

This looks amazing and we currently only have an emergency flat of water in there. One Question - How do you dump the melted ice water?

Hello FixitandLizard, the ice chest is not installed permanently, so I'm able to pull it out very easily to empty out the melted ice water.
