Under Bed Drawers

Our 19 layout has the dinette and bed flipped such the dinette is in the back. Getting to the storage area under the bed was a bit of a pain, having to lift the bed all the time. So...I put in a couple drawers...

Looks like a good job.

Have you figured out how you're going to latch them? I when with barrel latches, but on occasion they manage to bounce open...

They're on self closing slides. I'm hoping that will be enough to keep them closed.

The slides are ball bearing type slides. They support 100 lbs. Got them at Home Depot. The slides are 28" though the drawer on the left is 36" deep and the drawer on the right is 30" deep (because it opens opposite the sink cabinet I had to make it a little shorter to get it in and out).

We had carpet there and bins. The bins slid in and out easily on the carpet, if someone had drawers with no slides.
