Question - What do you use to secure cargo below?

In the 378TS XL we have lower cargo vays that go completly across.
I've been trying to think of a way to secure large flat items sucj as chairs from moving around while travel.
I'm not talking really heavy items just things flat enought to lay down.
1" rachet straps?
Cargo Net?

What to you use to trap items down so they don't move around?

Iggy........

I drilled and fastened a number of eyelets, with washers on both sides of the compartments, into the vertical walls of the compartments and securred my chairs using bungee cords to the eyelets.

After a few times, you know which size bungees are needed to do the job.

I use a combination of old shortened spring loaded shower curtain rods & two of those adjustable rods that came with our last rig that were supposed to be used to secure the slideout when traveling.
Right now I canít remember what theyíre called.
Would never use them for the slideout but they work great in the pass-through storage area to secure folded resin tables & chairs.

Iggy, I wish I had that problem. I can't help but my STUFF is so tight that it can't move around. I think the answer is you need more STUFF ( off to camping world) after all it is the Christmas Season. Also "MERRY CHRISTMAS" to you and everyone.....

Maybe the pickup bed style load management bars could help.
