Storage under queen bed

Recommended Posts

I have a queen bed up front just over my under storage.  I can access more storage under the bed from inside.  Wasn't an issue with the crummy thin bed that came with the RV but I replaced it with a full size home mattress that now makes getting under there almost impossible by yourself.  Anyone else have this issue, or done anything to make it more managable?  I can get in but definitely not my wife and hate to lose the storage.  Right now I just put my hitch, electric heater and some other longer term storage items under there.

Our camper queen bed has a storage area under it also. The mattress sits on a sheet of plywood and has pressure lifts like for a car hood or back hatch under it and is hinged on one end. When ever we need something under it we just lift up and the lifts help lift it up.  Works pretty nice. ;)

Mine is the same setup and the lifts worked on the last mattress but now with a thicker mattress it doesnt lift as easy and definitely doesnt stay up.  Thinking about putting some kind of lock in there to hold it up...

Or check around to see if you can get stronger lifts?

I also have room in the camper for a full size queen mattress so I am looking for one to put in there before our black hills trip this month. We even talked about taking the one off of our bed at home and putting it in the camper for our trip so I know I will be able to sleep well.

You can get memory foam pads for your mattress instead of buying/adding a heavier household mattress.  We just picked up a 3 inch thick queen size a couple months ago at Wally World.  It was over $100 but very much worth it!

I tried one and wasn't super comfortable for me, might have to give another one a shot though.  Which brand did you go for? 

Moon Lake - sorry, I can't remember a brand name and didn't find any packaging from when we bought it.  I do know I was surprised we chose the Walmart line over others we looked at.  It seemed like the best one.

    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker. 
    • What the.... didn't you just get that for x-mas?  A great read on pellet grills gents, call me cheap or old school but I'm still stuck on open pit and charcoal on the big rig. 
    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
