Fishing Pole Storage Ideas

i know this site is great for ideas,
i have a Rockwood 5th. wheel and i am looking for some ideas on how to store fishing poles,
i am thinking of some kind of rack in the big storage area in the front of camper, i normally keep about 6 to 8 poles in different sizes

also i would like to keep the reels on the poles so stuffing them all inside a big piece PVC pipe wont do

any ideas and or pictures would be great

thanks


dan

Check out the rod holders they mount on the deck of a bass boat. Look similar to a gun rack, not the ones to hold the poles while fishing. Small, plastic, with foam to grip the rod. Come in various sizes. Don't know what you have to mount to, floor or wall.
Good Luck.

You may want to check out West Marine for the white plastic rod holders with a hole on one side and opposing slot, the handle slides in the hole and the pole end goes in the slot. They have always worked great on my boats and are available in pairs . You may be able to find them at Wallmart Cabelas Boaters World online
I plan to install a pair in my TH

this guy had a neat idea:

Truck Bed Rod Holders - The Hull Truth - Boating and Fishing Forum

Might be something you could adapt to your uses.

Here's a "lower tech" less expensive approach:

A friend mounted a pair of those racks that others have mentioned on the ceiling of his TT. But he uses the TT primarily for his fishing trips... Plus he's vertically challenged (short) and doesn't hit his head on the reels.

As for me, I carry my fishing rods in a rod-tube, stowed either in the pass-through storage or in the pick-up bed, and the reels go in a tackle box.
