We toyed with the question of where to put the second under-bed door also. We divided our under-bed area into 4 sections and we're very happy with the decision to place the door next to the bathroom. It works for the way we use that compartment (shoes).

As an aside, I wish all the LED lights were the double lights. You can't have too much light in a kitchen area, and it seems like I need more light as I get older anyway.

same here Mike, mentioned this to my eye doctor last month, sign of cataracts, which is very common to retirees and easily remedied.

That is a lot of shoes "space" Imelda....
For mine, I installed an auxiliary electric heater on the bathroom bed side, keeps the bath and bed area toasty when you have hook ups.

I have built removable "shoe drawers" for the odd shaped underbed area next to the bath door in the 21s; ETI has been installing that access door so close to the bath door that it won't open a full 90 degrees unless you open the bath door first. So I'm toying with moving the hinges to the bottom so it would flip down to open instead.

Our shoe area may look like a lot, but put shoes for two people (tennis shoes, hiking shoes, shower shoes, etc) and it fills up fast. Even though we now have two levels for our shoes in that space, I had to enlarge it to the front of the trailer a few inches so that I wouldn't have to find another place for my shoes. As my wife says, a woman needs choices! And, I haven't noticed a problem with the door opening, but then I'm not sliding a drawer in and out.

Could a heater be mounted on the angled panel, leaving room for the shoes behind it Jim, or would you be afraid of fire?

Jim, I also re-worked the cubby area. I now have 5 cubbies in the same space as the original 4 and cut out the bottom for whatever. I intended on the bottom cutout to be for my shoes when I take them off at night, (easier to find and I wouldn't trip over them) but my wife has other plans for it. Oh well, I tried.

Jim, here's a picture of the cuby area when I thought the lower cutout area was going to be for shoes or slippers like yours. Now it has an oak bar across for a lip for whatever my wife plans on putting in there. Sorry for the reflection from the mirror on the bathroom door.

Yours looks nicer than mine, what did you line yours with? I just used some scrap remnants.
