How do you use your cab-over space?

I'll be taking delivery of a new class C soon. Since it's just me and the DW and we get along(most of the time), I have no intention of using the cab-over space as a bed. I have a couple ideas on how to utilize the space, but I imagine a lot of the use will be determined by how much stuff I can put elsewhere.

I was wondering how others have used the space and what mods, if any, you've done. Let me hear from you. Thanks

I use for the lawn chairs, and my hat!! I have so much other space I don't really use it for to much. Maybe extra pillows.

We keep soft things such as comforters, pillows, sheets, sleeping bags etc just in case they fall

I took out the foam and plywood that folds up so now it is a flat surface for storage of extra clothes, pillows, sleeping bag and what ever else we need to store.

X2 on soft bulky stuff storage. After a couple of sleeping bag drops added a coarse bungy cord "spider web " to keep the stuff from falling out.

We opted for the Entertainment system since we really had no use for an overhead bunk. Still cannot fill up the storage spaces behind the two doors on the sides of the TV.

It goes without saying I suppose, but we stowed a heavy box up there once, thinking the soft mattress would prevent slipping about - WRONG! and I had the bump to prove it.

Our overhead space is used for temp storage of sleeping stuff and then at night for sleeping.

I leave mine flipped open since I only run the house A/C and the genny. If it's closed, or down, the guys driving (me) doesn't get cool air.

I find the genny uses less gas than running the cab A/C. It also keeps the load off the engine.
