Here's a couple of slightly more unconventional yet highly functional locations. Both were sort of freak of nature, you know, you are sitting in there just looking around and aha!, it hits you....
These stay with van at all times, no matter where I go. When bringing additional rods, shorter kids ones for instance, they fit nicely in storage along left side (beauty of that EB).
Fly Rod goes here. The lamps hold it quite well and this has proven to be off-road worthy. Just have to be a little careful when adjusting lights for reading but even then it will stay. This is an 8-foot rod, use both lamps to secure.
Three piece backbacking spin rod goes here. This would be hard to duplicate if you didnt have the exact Diawa Spinmatic-X (which I highly recommend, super light and small). It just happened to fit snugly right up in there. Doesnt interfere with door, the light, anything. Has never fallen nor wavered, easily accesible.
