Headliner Shelf for Sprinter Van & Ford Transit Van

Headliner Shelf for Sprinter Van & Ford Transit Van

A headliner shelf is a great hack to add more storage to your Sprinter van or Ford Transit van. We can't say it enough: organization is the key to sanity in small spaces! We have two options to propose in this article: 1- Make your own shelf using a DIY Kit (save money & match with your build). 2- Buy a bolt-on aluminum shelf (premium option, nothing to build). Hope this helps!

1- Headliner Shelf DIY Kit (Vancillary)


 

The Vancillary headliner shelf DIY Kit is a great way to save time and money! The kit includes everything to reduce the complexity of the project: the brackets (which would be REALLY hard to make DIY, so that’s the key to unlock the DIY shelf potential!), the hardware and the shelf paper template. The headliner shelf project will go a bit like this:

1- Make The Shelf from plywood

2- Cover With Fabric Or Paint

3- Install Using the Brackets

2- Premium Aluminum Headliner Shelf (Flatline Van Co)


Another option is to get the FlatLine Van Co. headliner shelf. There’s nothing to build (it’s bolt-on) so it’s an excellent option if you’re looking to save time (it’s installed in minutes), or if you’re after that sharp aluminum powder-coated look 👌.

3- Other VAN LIFE STORAGE Ideas


Small spaces are fast to clean, but they also get messy in the blink of an eye! The key to sanity for Van Life is staying organized and taking advantage of all the space available to optimize the storage. In our van, we like each object to have its own dedicated storage place, so it can be easily put back where it belong. Below are some storage, organization and space saving ideas we actually use for our full time Van Life. Hope this helps!

NICE TO MEET YOU.

About-Us-Narrow

Hello! We’re Isabelle and Antoine 🙂 In 2017, we sold our house (and everything in it), quit our engineering careers, and moved into our self-built campervan. We’ve been on the road since then, and every day is an opportunity for a new adventure; we’re chasing our dreams, and hopefully it inspires others to do the same!

Heads up! As of Fall 2021, we are currently visiting our families back home and we might not be able to answer all comments due to time constrain. Thanks for understanding and see you on the road! -Isabelle and Antoine
