Storage compartments

Can you drill holes into the pass thru areas of outside storage compartments in a Thor Miramar so you can use tie downs to secure larger items?

You probably can if there are no obstructions on the under side. Have you considered using one of the 3M double sided tapes with D rings? Some of the 3M tapes are really strong plus then you do not have to penetrate thru any storage compartment housing and risk water penetration and/or unwanted intruders, etc.

I'd probably examine a few other solutions it's nice that they are sealed. I just took a long trip with no issues with things moving around..maybe just lucky but I try to organize things well in each bay

3M makes some super duty tapes with exceptional holding power.

If you don't want to drill holes, you can use an epoxy product or 3M makes a marine adhesive I've used on sailboats that once installed and set properly, almost impossible to get off. West Marine carries it.
