More Duo mods

Post by IanH on Mon Jun 19, 2017 8:17 pm

A lot of thanks for the inspiration for these and other mods must go to Nimbus and JennyandPeter.

Like both of the above I found the underbed drawer to be a supreme waste of available space, so I removed it and piano hinged the front to make it drop flat to the floor like the ones opposite.

I wanted to store our folding chairs such that they could be got at easily, and, most importantly, without moving anything else to get at them, a pet hate of mine!

The box I designed went through many evolutions before it got here! Initially it was to fit through the bed frame, this rapidly got binned so the final one had to be assembled in situ. It is all glued, there are 4 screw fixing the base to the floor and another 4 fixing the ends to the bed frame, that's it!

Floor panel.....


The floor panel is seen here with the inboard side and the end fitted as well



Now seen with the outboard side fitted

All that remains is the top assy....


This assembly is for, well ok, mostly wine! But it can carry standard cans, and may yet be modified to carry 2 x 2ltr bottles by the removal of the rh divider, we'll see.

This is it in use.....




There's room outboard for 3 (or more) x 2 ltr water bottles, the levelling ramp is no longer there, next post!



Invisible once the velcro removable end panel back in place!! (Now where did I get that idea from.........................!)

It is 900mm long, determined by the chair dimensions, leaving about 400mm forward of it, accessed either through the drop down drawer front or from above as seen here.

Total cost £12, weight less than 6Kg. Its removable should a future owner not want it as well.

We did not need to box ours in as we have a wooden bed frame, I think the metal one is better though as ours skews when pulling out.
 Do insulate the wheel arches. Keep up the good work.
