Van storage and racking ideas

Hello all

Just got my first van and currently all my stuff is just chucked in the back, mowers, trimmer,blower, rakes etc

Just wondering the best way to sort it all out with shelving etc.

How do you all do yours, any pics to show it off so I can steal ideas ? :)

Thanks

    Hi James, do a search on this. There has been a few posts and pics put up about this. Some very well racked out members vans to have a look at.
  • I havent got any pics of mine, but everything has its own place.  that way you can see straight away if anything is missing, and also gives you more space.  i found come little spring loaded brackets in b & Q, i attached these to the side of the van and they hold the hand tools, bunjy (spelling) cords hold the petrol cans in place, also the spades and loppers are corded around the wheel arches.

    I just changed my van again last week (yes that's 3 different vans in less than 2 years) - depending what van you have James, depends how you rack it out.

    Here's my solution this time:

    I hate in-efficient, disorganized and untidy vehicles - this one has actually worked out the best of the lot so far - bar the fact that the rear tailgate cannot be opened with the trailer on which is mildly annoying but never mind...

  • thanks guys, Adam that look's great!

    I like the cutouts for the Strimmers in the ply, and the ramp.

  • Anyone thought of using a Disabled Vehicle with a drop down ramp or tail lift? Seen a few on Ebay, low miles and good condition.

  • yeah i was thinking the same when i was looking for a van, would need to spend a wee bit modding it out though as there set up to be all nice and cosy like a car, so would get very messy.
