I installed storage nets in the bow area of my Lund and got to thinking these would be great to install in the area above the side cabover windows in the Lance. It took only a few minutes and I now have storage in an otherwise unused area.

That sounds like a really good idea. We put racks up in our cabover area, but there isn't much room to store things and they slide around. Do you have any pics of your modifications.

I used wire closet shelving (from Home Depot) rather than nets, and it has worked out really good for what I carry up there (some cloths on one side, and a couple of those folding chairs that fit into a nylon bag on the other):

You can see a little "net" magazine rack that I mounted down by the head of the bed -- I have those on both sides for pocket books and such.

Best wishes.....

Where can you get those little nets i have not been able to locate any. I did use two of Netboys ideas the wire shelf and an accumilator tank both work very well Thanks Netboy[emoticon]

Thanks for the pics, from both. I think these ideas will be very helpful, and make traveling a little easier.
