Hi Everyone - thank you for letting me join! I already enjoy everything you are posting and am learning so much. Hubs and I were so excited to hang this soft sided cabinet system in 20 minutes. It is a rack from Aspen Frontiers and a Patagonia duffel. Our ceiling was already done, so my husband used snaptoggles and we were finished before we knew it. We like it so much we are going to put more up. In case you find it helpful, here is a link to the website: Aspen Frontiers

Nice work!

I think there is a great opportunity for "micro-RV" storage solutions that are light in weight and thin walled. Like a system using a thin composite or fabric shell with a fiberglass or aluminum framework. Such a solution would leave more room inside for storage and be much more easily removed and replaced. Also, this kind of storage would lower the vehicle center of gravity and overall weight, and make for a less hazardous projectile in case of high speed impact or rollover.

It always seems strange seeing hundreds of pounds of 3/4" plywood cabinetry (often with annoying swing-open doors and pull-out drawers) just to hold clothing, sporting goods, and personal items. Even airline galley cabinets and carts are much lighter and stronger. But hanging soft-sided bags and bins from the walls would be a nice low budget option, and much more suited to the confined spaces.

@diytech - Thank you!! my Husband really liked the idea of keeping the overhear weight low because it really helps the handling at highway speeds. I personally liked the idea of being able to bring the duffle inside for cleaning or use as luggage when we aren't on a van trip.

Excellent! For even more volume, there are some good duffle bag options for motorcycles, and they are made to clip onto a motorcycle. There are hooks and straps, and could be attached to a wall with cargo loops, etc.
