Overhead storage rail on 2011 233S

We purchased a 233S and I LOVE it, but was noticing that the overhead storage near the front of the trailer has a nice rail that is both decorative and functional, but the rear overhead storage is lacking the rail. Has anyone else noticed this and does it matter? Has anyone added anything in the rear or is it fine as is??

Here are a couple of pictures that illustrate what I'm talking about...

The front overhead storage with rails...

The rear overhead storage with no rails...

Thanks for any thoughts!!

Yep, I noticed that earlier this year when we picked up our trailer. The lip on the rear shelving is all that is available. We find its enough to keep towels from falling off but other items with less friction may slide off in transit.

all the Roo/Shamrock hybrids have this setup.
we put all the loose stuff in the front railed shelf and bulkier stuff, like rolls of Reflectix or pillows, go on the back shelf.

Yes, Our 21ss has the same configuration, there are no rails on the rear overhead storage. I wish there were because some of the item we store back there fall off during transit.
See ya' out there.
