Does anyone have any storage solutions for the new Cascadia? I previously had a 2016 and I just got the 20. The storage space is much prettier, but there's not enough to hold the stuff I had in my 16. I like all the goodies this truck has, but all of the under bed storage is taken up by equipment.

Do you have a double-bunk, condo sleeper?

Yeah, double bunk. If I hit my head on that GD ladder just one more time...

Well, in my truck, I took the top mattress out. I used 1” X 10” boards and built a “box” that sits in the upper bunk. I have my second dorm-sized fridge strapped down on the right hand side, on top of a pice of plywood. I’ve done this in several trucks, and nothing has ever come out. I haul a bunch of food, water, and assorted supplies up there.

Guessing you have those overhead storage bins? The ladder.. took me several months to stop thinking any day I was going to have a skull fracture.

Those bins are larger than you might think but seriously difficult to organize effectively. I use 2 different sizes of sterilite brand totes in mine with not much success. The closet is smaller than the one in the 2016 too.. I've given up on hanging anything in it and squeeze a large duffel on end in there. Sad, I know.

I’ve got plenty of storage in my Frightliner. Of course there is no refrigerator, microwave, inverter and barely an engine taking up any space. I dream of having your problem.

Dude, that was exactly my last truck 🤣 I’m glad I have the problem I do, and my wife and I had a few ideas I might try. I’m keeping the top bunk, because one of my sons wants to come out over the summer.

I thought it was just me with the closet. I have a pair of jeans and a rain jacket hanging up and a couple towels on the bottom and it is stuffed full.
