Basement storage

After our last trip I decided to see if I could organize the basement storage of our 35QBA. It has a lot of pass thru storage area but things are always sliding around and falling off. I read several other threads on this forum and others about the subject. There were some very good ideas but none were exactly what I was looking for. I love using the plastic tubs but even they shift and fall when put up on the pass thru shelf.
I decided to use 3/4 inch PVC pipe to design a grid of cells that would sit on top of the pass thru floor. I sized the cells to fit what we carry. As our needs change I can cut the pipe and change the size of the cells.
I also used the PVC 3/4 pipe to extent the width of the pass thru floor in the extreme rear storage area so I could store fold up chairs without have to stack them on top of each other. I can put them in from each side and they don't touch in the middle. The pipe holds them above the lower are so I can still store things there.
I am going to try to post a couple of pictures.

Nice idea. I wish I had the problem of things sliding around in our storage bays, but as full-timers, there is no room anything to move an inch.

Se use plastic bins as well, but I've never had anything shift that I've noticed. Probably because there isn't any extra room in the basement. I just try to keep stuff organized and when that fails I stack and jam it.
