2013 Freedom Elite 28Z Rear Storage Bay Partitions

Hello all. In my earlier post I spoke of needing a better way to deal with the cavernous 7 feet wide by 4 feet deep storage bay in the rear of the RV. I have come up with what I think is a workable solution. I have posted pictures here on Flickr https://flic.kr/s/aHskNczxrq with explanations about how it works. The materials I used were 1 3/4" sheet of plywood, two 8' - 1" x 4" pine boards and one 6' - 1" x 4" pine boards. I used 8 spring loaded latches purchased from Amazon, four used on each partition. Since my plywood was bowed, I attached the pine 1" x 4"s in an attempt to remove the bow in the plywood. This was partially successful.

Have a look and I welcome your questions and/or comments.

This is a great idea. May be borrowing it for our 28Z!

A word of caution. Select the little used or little needed items you put in the covered wells wisely. Many times I have to unload a bay to get things I need. But of course, this would also happen if the large back storage bay was unpartitioned.

That's a great looking and spacious rear storage compartment on the 28Z. Thor should use that compartment design, or similar, on more floorplans and models.
