Driver’s Side Storage Unit

The width of the ambulance box provided an opportunity for storage together with the dinette opposite the galley. On the driver’s side, from the bed bulkhead to the back door it’s 64 ½” long and 12” deep. From the floor it rises up to the “crease” in the ambulance ceiling to 54 3/4″ in height.

This space was divided into three levels. The bottom level (the garage) is accessible when the rear doors are open.  Long bulky items such as our folding camp table and chairs will be stored here. The “crane” for the spare tire also fits.

Since the dinette bench seats will butt up against this storage unit and the table will be affixed to its center, access to the next level had to be unique. We settled on open access holes. If necessary cargo nets can be used to restrain the contents.

The upper level has doors on hinges and are self-supporting in the open position with some skookum struts.

Here again surface bolts are used to secure the cupboard doors while under-way.

Next up – the dinette.

Curious – what’s around the next corner? Wandering, searching to find, where do I belong? Between the old and new world. Always looking for an adventure.
