The wheels are bolted to the doors; I do not know how he keeps his nuts in the boxes on corrugations. He says his nuts do not bounce - hmmmmmmmmmmmm - out of the boxes!

Great idea.

I have one of those plastic covered wire baskets from Bunnings or Howards Storage on the inside of one of my boot doors.

It holds the rubber gloves I use when emptying the toilet cassette and some soap, sterilising gel and hand cream, all in plastic squeeze bottles.

I'll take a photo and post it.

Have any of you reinforced the hinges,or do the factory fitted ones handle the extra weight ? If not modified in some way,I'll be interested to see how they handle it. Please keep me updated as I've often thought of doing something like what you've done.

Yes - we also have kept away from doing this to our dors due to hinge design SWL - so we would alos love to know of any problems or otherwise.

There's not much weight in my shelf and the only time the hinges would be tested is while moving and I expect the door frame would support it quite well.

I am advised that Alf has had those on his doors for years without any problem.

While we may have a large than average van - 24' - when it is your home you are always looking for ways to create or conserve space. We were due for new cookware; off we went to Myers for their frequent sales. In this case, the sale price was what you could get at a good outlet store: 40% - 50% off of RRP.

We have happily found both pots and pans that do not have handles!

I don't know about your storage; this has resulted in all cookware in one drawer (Jak will probably spread out anyway!)

I also stack a saucepan in my frypan.

Both are expensive non stick and I was worried about the coating on the frypan being rubbed off.

I purchased a roll up high density foam sleeping mat (about 1cm thick) from Clarke Rubber and cut it to fit to the bottom and halfway up the walls of the frypan. Then I glued on a ring of the same material to this, so that the saucepan would not move around when placed on top.

It works a treat on the corrugations.

Willie.

That is great; checked the prices and very similar to the sale prices at Myer.

Now, we have one piece left to find and we will be rid of all fixed handles:

Our van is a 2002 vintage. The door hinges have just cracked along the hinge line and have just arranged to have replacement installed. I cannot comment on what the extra weight would have on the hinges but after over 9 years before having to replace the hinges, I could see no problems.
