Rattle and Bang

How do y'all tie things down in the basement storage areas, especially the "walkthroughs" that extend from side to side? What do you use to keep things from banging around on sharp curves.
TIA for your response..

Nothing is tied down in my basement except my batteries, and solar equipment. Never had a problem. But I do slow down for sharp curves

Ditto, nothing is tied down and when we open cargo doors all is as we left it.

Tiny things are in tubs other than that they stay put.

Unless you have rounded items that roll, most things will stay put. I think most use tubs to secure items. Now some of the tubs may slide a little, but no big deal.

Take measurements, particularly height, of your storage bay and find some tubs that will fit and hold each other in place.

Tubs and some loose stuff around it. If you bring enough it can't go anywhere.....

Yep, once you're to the point where storage doors barely close cause you have too much stuff no shifting occurs.

Storage bins really help.

Here are the bins I use for the pass throughs on my Tiffin gasser. They can be found at Lowe’s...

The large ones fit back to back lengthwise across the bays perfectly.

The one with the green lid is a Hefty product.

I have added a heavy rubber mat to the bottom of the rear bay I put my tow bar in when not in use to keep it from denting the floor, I also have put some thin plywood with a thin rubber matting on my rear cross bay and on the floor of a couple other bays because I want to either disperse the point loading from our flolding bikes or to protect other items from getting scratched. My (80#) big green egg mini max sits on 3/4” plywood.

Also added the wire shelving above the hydraulics to protect them in case something would shift (never has...) in the pass through and keep my “utility” water hose bungeed down on it. Putting that shelf in was a real pain.......

Regards

Creative packing, tubs and anti-slide mats. And, of course, go around curves in low g force mode.

The down side of tubs is no matter what you need or where you put it, it will make it's way to the bottom of the tub.

I once wanted to carry something big and fragile on top of my center rail (we have a gasser). We put down a large sheet of that rubber-like non-skid stuff and the big thing never moved all the way cross country.

We use tubs for the most part. Everything else stays put. Never had a problem.
