Some will need a hook that sturdy, so thanks for the great suggestion.

Right now, I'm just interested in keeping a robe and jammies off the floor in the bathroom.

Most important for me: The side thermos pocket is large enough my 12V water boiler and its metal bracket, what would be in the cigarette lighter up front while in use (I use the ash tray to clamp down on the metal bracket from which the boiler is suspended). I am a tea drinker and cannot live without a boiler in close proximity. Thanks so much for the suggestion!

I can't figure out how to insert a photo, but perhaps this Imgur link will work:

Looking at the photo you posted, might consider moving that to the narrow floor space directly behind the passenger seat, which is where I have mine. When I was still working, this sat on the passenger seat of my car.

Filled, the weight becomes significant and may be inordinately bulky for something suspended in air. The Cab Commander fits perfectly in that narrow carpet area, attached around the front seat.

Then, you can add a Seat Back Organizer above it, which is what we did. Uses all that vertical space, and provdes lots of little cubbies for odds and ends.

Thanks - I might do this. I had contemplated the weight, wondered if I might constrain that issue with what is quickly becoming my number one AI accoutrement - Velcro straps. I will see how it works in practice.

If you can look past my uber cute doggies, and the rest of the mess, you'll see the red storage cube that I bought on line from Walmart. Including shipping, it was $25. Inside the cube, is the air tight dog food storage container that holds 12 lbs of dog food. Since the dog food container is round, that leaves the 4 corners of it in which to store shampoo bottles, dish detergent bottles, etc.. And the cube is super sturdy, so you can also sit on. Best $25 spent!

I really like those.

I've been looking at the black, leather-look one that I could put between the rear benches for my crochet items. Have found no good way to neaten that up....til these.

I have a couple of fexible, plastic, carry-all totes stuck in the oddly shaped area under the galley sink, where I keep shampoo, pine-sol, windex wipes, leather cleaner, etc.

They are not terribly durable, seeming to need replaced every season, but can be had for $3 or so at places like Hobby Lobby. It's the "flexible" part that is crucial.

The reason I chose this one from Walmart, is 'cause it's less than 15" square. Many of the nicer ones I've seen are bigger, and would stick out more. We can also fit this one between the two front seats, and again, the bigger ones won't fit.

My latest creation is this mini storage desk combo. I used a small IKEA Billy bookcase as the base and hacked it into a nice fit.

Drop down desk top is at same level as table.

I also made a small storage bin that attached to side of passenger seat. Used a bin from Container Store and trimmed the top to clear the seat when it rotates.

It attaches to seat base with small wood clips made to lock in under lower seat frame.

Very nice, Mike!

I really the desk-shelf unit. Is that attached to anything, or free-floating.......do the water bottles hold it in place?

I just ordered this one from WalMart, for the bargain price of $21.52, with tax. Hard to beat that, and it will tidy things up in the rear.

15" square, which should allow the bed to go down without having to move it, and the top looks smooth enough that I could set my coffee cup on it in the mornings.

Pick up at store = no shipping and handling.

Thanks Maggie,
The bottom is designed to hold 24 bottle case of water and it helps keep it stable. But there is also a nylon web strap that ties it to the driver seat frame and a spacer on the bottom that helps lock it down from sliding forward. I haven't yet driven with it in place. I suspect I'll have to get it more solidly tied to seat base in the future. The open space above the water bottles works as a nice foot rest with a pillow as in this photo.
