French term or phrase: une soute décaissée
This is a description of the storage compartment/ garage at the back of a motorhome.


"la soute traversante est décaissée et surbaissée pour faciliter les chargements."

I guess it could mean recessed but it seems unlikely here.

Any help would be appreciated!

English translation:maximized/stripped boot
Explanation:
The meaning I know is "hollowed out" in French technical jargon.
To save weight or space, or create passageway.
I'm guessing the camper trade name. Space maximized?
