Under bed storage

Our Escape 19 is currently under construction and we were surprised to see that the floor is raised under most of the bed. Is this right? Would it not cause a slight problem when rolling containers in and out from under the bed?

The water tank is the raised area. When the doors are shut on the underbed storage there is a 5" wide area, then the raised area. We store 4 plastic storage boxes, 11" deep and 17" wide, and around 24" long. Made me go to the trailer if you want exact measurements. The boxes fit side by side, with another 2 side by side behind them. We attached the rear boxes with a rope and pull. Use nothing on the floor to guide nor protect the vinyl flooring. The doors are held shut with a shackle, so far the shackle has kept everything in place.

On the 21 this same raised area is a tripping hazard in front of the dinette. Or at least we both tripped on the sharp edge.

As stated the first 5 inches is at floor level before the raise. The raised floor allows for the bins to clear the lower frame under the doors.
Here is a picture of the floor with the bed removed.
So many modifications...so little time.

I used milk crates (aframe trailer) held together w gear ties. I put a stick on felt pad at each corner and one in the middle.

Sorta do same . On one side under bed , have 2 large containers gear tied together . Laundry on other side . With a rug under bed containers easily pull out . Think maybe the carpet also helps to keep cold away . We also have the spray foam . Pat
