    I also use the Ikea pots but mine are just lose in the van. Can you say where and how you have fitted those. It looks very useful. Thanks

    I am interested in how you fix the rail to the van. Is it an Ikea rail and what are the hooks and how do they fit in the van? It is great to see how other people fit things in their van . Thanks

    @Auberg-ine, How did you affix the "DIY Cans/Mugs holder while cruising" in post #48 and, again visible in #69? It looks like a regular drinks holder that slots into the groove in the kitchen unit. I've just tried mine in the door and it just falls out. Have you drilled it o something?
    Cheers

    I drilled two tiny holes on both sides of the cavity to introduce a small metal skewer. This way I created a profile similar to the kitchen rail: https://vwcaliforniaclub.com/threads/cup-holder-on-sliding-door.23428/#post-269695
    To also be able to fit in classic cans in the cup holder I glued a piece of cotton ribbon at the ring and an extra strip of velcro (soft part) inside the ring.

    @Barbara - Perhaps try rotating your phone if you are using that to read these posts - I just found that while looking at the messages with iPhone in “portrait” mode I don’t see the post number, but if I rotate the phone to “landscape” suddenly the post number is shown just to the left of the Reply button as mentioned above.
    Hope this helps

    Neat positions of the fire extinguisher and blanket. Will steal that idea.

    The blind has now changed and has 3 rigid “pockets” in it. They aren’t very deep front to back but I’ve found we can fit our specs in them.

    ...just drilled the fire extinguisher frame into the plastic trim Elly. They're indeed workhorses; they really can stand a piercing or two. :embarrased
    I personally find it a too handy spot to be occupied by something as rarely 'used'. I hang the extinguisher in front of the front seat. But probably the Italian horse has already a bookshelf there.;)
    I do plan to add an extra spray at the booth, right side above the light switch, for when BBQ-ing at my outdoors-kitchen (post 97)

    When you drill the holes in various places do you need to use rawl plugs to keep fixings in place?

    No, just short self-tapping screws. Also, the bottom of the extinguisher is resting at the floor, so no extra vertical weight component.
    For my bamboo lantern I just looped an elastic ribbon through the ventilation grille right behind.

    Don't take a fence but with a question like that it might be better to
    ask someone to do it for you.

    ELLY ! DROP THE HAMMER DRILL AND COME OUT OF THE CALI
    WITH YOUR HANDS ABOVE YOUR HEAD.

    Lol. None taken, Westfalia.

    I’m actually pretty handy with a drill. I’m thinking if the trim you’re drilling through is thin it may need cavity rawl plugs.
