You ALMOST got it right Bubba!! The crates have to be put with the opening facing the OUTSIDE! That way, things can be stored in them. THEN you can store larger items under the bed. Close, but no cigar.
Sound logic HandleBar, except that most crates like that when turned on their side, don’t support much weight. Presumably Bubba is a big ‘ol boy and don’t wanna’ end up crashing to the ground when he flops down after a hard days drinkin’!
