Does anyone know where to buy the wire shelves like Sears uses in their work vans? If some Sears tech would give me the name of the manufactor I would be greatfull!!!

Thanks

Thanks for the reply. I called AmericanVan and they don't carry the wire shelving. I know that Sears has the dealer install the shelves but I can't find the manufactor of them. This is driving me nuts!!!!!!

I went to Lowe's & bought the wire closet shelves .

I installed them upside down , so that the lip was facing up .

i installed them using the rail mounting hardware so they can be adjusted or removed easily if needed .

That's a fantastic idea! Do you think you could post a photo or two of the inside of your van with the shelving, Brother Southern? And did the rail mounting hardware come with the shelving?

I'm looking at buying a Ford Transit next year (the Fixit Prius has well over 100,000 miles on it) and will install shelving in it.

I will try to post photos Tomorrow .

The mounting hardware comes separate .

And , it's not exactly cheap either .

But , it was the best option I could come up with at the time , and I am well pleased with the result !

BTW they will tote a load too !

Haven't broken or sagged one yet , even with motors on them .

I've got a Step Van now. All the aluminum shelving was manufacturer installed, they tell me. For once I have more than enough room.
