How about a place to hide the Smith & Wesson?

Don't use your clip on holster it might pull down your swimming trunks.

Also clean and oil the gun well after your swim!

When I built the Zephyr I made a "basement". I keep the spare tire here and other heavy things. Keeping the weight close to the axel makes sense to me. It is also my safe place.

I don’t look at some of my storage spots as secret but it might take someone a long time to find and open up some of the storage compartments. I just think of them as optimum use of available space… ;)

Does a trailer fall into the legal definition of a vehicle? This is an interesting topic, because there is no malice in wanting a "safe" place in one's trailered "domicile."

In this state , your truck/trailer is considered an extension of your home , so you can carry anything you want , within reason of course...Besides we usually carry so much stuff anyway , wouldn't be hard to "stash" the old S&W in the bedroll... :roll:

A secret compartment is a brilliant idea. I have seen the under floor and that reminds me of the tire storage I have in my rig. I really like the idea of sliding a panel or two like those japanese puzzle boxes and having a secret spot for my keys or other valuables.
