Whenever you are traveling or living in your van, space is at a premium. Our van is 144 High Roof. One of the nice things about the high roof model, besides being able to stand up with good posture is that there is some extra storage space if you get creative. (This is also why we design our window covers to fold and stay up when you don’t want them down, it saves space!) A number of people and various companies have capitalized on making a shelf that sits right above the driver and passenger side seats. These shelves are typically called “headliner shelves” or “overhead shelves”. This post explores the various options available for these shelves, including both DIY and just purchase and play. At the end we discuss the option we decided to go with for our own van.
