Re: New SMB Owner: 93 Ford E250 2x4

Was able to spend some time on two other projects that had been on my radar.

The first was some shelving in the closet. For the last couple of years we've simply packed our duffle bags and stuffed them in the closet. I guess it sorta worked, but I think it could be better. I installed 3 new shelves with the hope that instead of a using a duffle bag we simply fold our clothes and put them on the shelf. This prevents the need from putting in and pulling out the duffle bag every time we need something. I guess we'll know more on our first trip.

Added a few extra slots for added adjustability.




While at Home Depot I stumbled on these carpet tiles and thought they would help keep the original 30+ year old carpet clean another 30 years

Nice job on the rack. It looks excellent. I'm studying your ideas in hopes to do something like that myself soon.

As for carpet, I foolishly re-carpeted my van with indoor-outdoor black carpet (astroturf). I hate it. It shows everything, doesn't stick well, etc. etc. I recently got some big rolls of thin rubber sheeting I'm going to try and lay out down the center aisle of mine, but I'm certainly going to look in to the carpet squares you found next time I'm at HD.

Nice work!

Adding a few images to show the bike rack in practice.

Turns out the weight of the spare tire, the trasharoo, bike rack and bike are a bit much for the 3-point connection on the swing arm so the whole thing bounces a fare amount - enough to bother me so I added a simple strap from the roof rack to the bike rack (not shown) - problem solved. It's not ideal, but only needs to be there during transport so that I can keep my eyes on the road and not the bouncy bikes in the back.

Hi

where did you get the red bike clamps you used to secure the pelican case to the tubes on your swingout?
What brand are they?
