Basements for tears????

Postby Oregonian » Fri Jun 08, 2007 11:38 pm

:thinking: I am thinking off trying to get some of the unwanted things out of the inside of my tear. Just too much stuff to move or take out just to take a nap. I am not, and I know it, a woodworking person. Don't want to have to go through the bed to get to the basement, really would like to take out and put back from the outside. :worship: SUGESTIONS PLEASE.

If you don't have a tongue chest yet, that's the best way to add storage. A little pricy, but JC Whitney has them... ... 0000190190

The quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten, so build your teardrop with the best materials...

There are a couple of tears out there that have an exterior drawer for the basement. Danny

TS has one similar to that for around a hundred $
If it's not broken, you're not trying hard enough.

Our tear drop has an outside basement. It pulls out 4 1/2 ft. We just love it. We keep fishing poles, broom, shovel, 6 matts, 2 benches and a walking stick. Works for us.

Italia - I see it just fore of the axle, do you have pics of it open?

And perhaps from underneath? :)

I was doodling the same thing today for our build.
