#4 – Bungee chords
I’ve already mentioned milk crates as the cheapest and quickest solution for van storage, but I failed to mention one problem. If you use milk crates, or any other form of storage that’s not permanently attached to the van, you’ll need something to secure those units so they don’t go flying on sharp turns.
Bungee chords are fantastic! Here’s our weird system for connecting them:
Bungee chords can also be used, in a pinch, to attach stuff to the roof. You can use them as a clothesline to dry clothes (if, for example, you left the van door window open and it started to rain in the middle of the night. Or you peed the bed.) You can use them to hang a curtains. You can use them to walk your dog. You can flatten your boobs to avoid getting harassed.
The list goes on. Be creative. This is living in a van after all. Rules? Pshhhh.
