As I am sure you all can appreciate, we were looking for any additional storage we can in our small camper.

Step Up To Overcab Added Storage

I was looking at the step up to the bed and wondered what was under it.  I removed the four screws holding it down.  Beneath the step I found a whopping 1-square foot of open air (well, close enough).

I decided to put a hinge on the front of the step and secured it with a barrel slide bolt. Then I drilled a 3/8-inch hole for the bolt to go into. I picked up a piece of piano hinge, some 1/2-inch wood screws, and a barrel slide bolt at the nearest hardware store.

Step Up To Overcab Storage Opportunity

I think it will work great, although I have to admit, I haven’t used it yet.

It took me one hour to complete this modification and cost me less then 10-dollars.  In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is easy.
