Hey big fella, I once put elastic netting inside the roof for storage up there - everything bounced. Use net like fishing net but not elastic.

I used some old nylon fishing net.
(yes, I found a scrap of a few square metres on the beach one day and picked it up when every one else walked past it.)
Did try some elasticed netting like they have for putting over trailers, but found it stretched too much and drooped down too easily with a few jackets etc.

We have used ordinary shadecloth to make storage under the roof, running along the walls above the side windows and secured with occy rubber in the outer edge. Works a treat. Colour matched of course.

Just about to do this myself....did you sew cord into the edges and allow loops at the corners? Just looking for the neatest/easiest way to go about it..

Cheers,

Mark

Hi Mark, Used a length of shadecloth the full length of the cabin and about 35-40cm wide. Turned a 2cm hem along the long edges. I threaded in a length of curtain wire into the outer edge that runs along the top of the windows and secured the ends with the curtain wire fastenings. Ran some medium weight occy elastic through the inner edge and finished the ends off in loops that go onto hooks on the cabin ceiling cross members. Along the inner edge of each here is also a central hook going into a cross member to hold the edge firmly against the cabin ceiling.
There is enough give in these "overhead lockers" so that quite a lot of lighter stuff can go in there without ever falling out. Total cost about $20 - 30.

Hope this helps, can email photo if you want further info.

Val.

Most vehicle manufacturers flog them off so if you have the dimensions you could call round some of them. (Often reasonable price) I bought a couple of Daewoo Tacuma nets that were great in the back of the old Jack (Beauty is they come with loops etc built in as they are designed exactly for this)
