2018 Winne 29VE small secure safe

I have had my29VE for four months now and I am taking my time to get used to everything about the 29VE. I do have some questions but, I will only ask one for now until I get used to using this site:


1. I want to install a small secure safe and where I want to install it permanently I do not know what I can do or not do myself!. So here is my question: Can I secure the safe to the inside wall and if so will I be going into a stud like you would in a House? If someone has an answer or better suggestion, I am all ears!!!

Depends on brand and model but there are both metal studs and wooden studs. The outside walls are typically ~2" thick and inside walls are typically 1 & 1/4" thin. So not much room to store much. I believe that some interior walls will come without many studs, and one remodel I saw the inside wall studs were spaced 24" apart. Pretty flimsy.

You might consider a safe under a drawer in the kitchen. It could be bolted down but if the kitchen is like mine, there's lots of room to open it when the drawers are removed, but you'd have to reach inside the wooden framework. Could be awkward. Another good place would be under the refer. Mine has lots of room there even with the converter, after the drawer is removed. In my rig it's 24" from the bottom of the refer to the floor there.

Let us know what you end up doing, I'd like to add one to my 29VE too. I thought about putting it under the bed since there is a ton of room in front of the fresh water tank to the back of the water pump that is totally wasted space.

To access this space, there are just a few screws and thin 1/4" plywood.

I just put my things under the over head bed then just hide the key somewhere.The bed stays up most of the time.

I bolted mine to the floor of one of the storage compartments. My thought was that anyone trying to mess with it would be out in plain sight.
