Shelf for over bed

Any pictures of shelves owners have installed from side to side over bed for storage? What did you use and how did you attach it to the walls?

shelf over bed

I have a 179 and made shelf over my bed. I took a 1 by twelve cut two of them to the width of the rpod then ripped one into 5 inch wide pieces. Put one of the pieces on top of the curtain valence the other I screwed to one side of the 12 inch wide piece then put it on top of the valence and screwed it to the valence with one screw per side. I have had it in place for two years with no problem at all. Sorry I on't have any photos of it. I stained to more or less match the rest of the trim in the pod.

I don't have a picture, but in our 179 I cut a 30" 1x4 in two. Laid the 15" boards flat on top of the valence above the windows with a small "L" bracket screwed to the back. I cut another 1x4 the width of the trailer behind the valences (about 6'2.5" on mine.) Pushed that board up flush behind the valences against the ceiling and attached the top leg of the "L" to it holding it in place. The 1x4 was 'tall' enough that it locked the framework onto the valences. We bought a 6' x 12" wire shelf at Walmart and secured the back of it with wire clamps to the long board and so rested on top of the valence covers so neither end touched the walls. The shelf could lift up in front when hit while making the bed. There are no screws into any part of the TT.

I saw Capt. Kidds at the RPOD roundup in Cannon Beach. His is beautiful and strong, ours is more spartan and lighter constructed for a CPAP, towels, blankets, etc.
