Extendable Storage Tray

I was thinking about something like this to put bicycles, backpacks, etc. on and then have a platform bed about 36" above. Maybe in a Sprinter or new Transit van. Might work in an E350 also. Would really like to get my bikes inside the van. Anyone seen or done something like this? This tray is rated at 500 pounds and should be plenty strong for what I need.

Re: Extendable Storage Tray

Thanks, exactly what I was looking for. I don't see any reason why SMB would not be able to incorporate this into their build process.

Re: Extendable Storage Tray

Worst case you have them make it exactly x" wide, y" deep etc and basically plug and play.

But they probably would, if they say no- call back the next day and talk to someone else. Repeat as necessary.

Re: Extendable Storage Tray

We bought a couple of Tern folding bicycles so we could put them inside.
