Fishing Rod Holders for inside

Hi Yall:
I have a Roo 233s and next to camping I enjoy fishing, saltwater and freshwater. Does anybody have a good idea or know of a good style fishing rod holder that one could mount inside? I have 6 20 -30 pound trolling rod/reels and 4 nice spinning rod/reels. I would like to be able to store them inside the Roo when we take them off the boat for the day. I have some wall mount rod holders in the garage, but I am not sure this is a good idea.

Anyone out there in Forest River land fish and have an interior rod storage idea or one you use?

Bob,
the only two ways or atleast on my 2306 I could see mounting a rod holder would be to either put the reels in a Tube and mount to the top front of the comparment or mount something along the aluminum frame to keep them up and out of the way - I think if you had them mounted low they would get broken by the other gear provided you stuff your main compartment like I did on mine

Our bed lifts up with storage underneath. My DH installed our rod holders to the bottom of the bed. When you raise the bed they raise too. Works for us. Doesn't interfere with storage.

using collapsable polls right?
Does he keep the reels on them or take the reels off?

Wow I like that idea because my main compartment is stuffed and fear that even hung I would break a pole

I wouldnt mind seeing a picture of this

Hope Bob doesnt mind me asking

I do know they are not ocean rods, but a couple of them are big. We do leave the reels (and hooks) on them. There is about 6 under there hooked to the bed.Never been a problem and always out of the way. We don't even unload them Just store them there. Dont have any pictures but guess I could get some this summer.

Since I have a 233S the only place that I can think might work for rod storage would be to install or modify something in the rear ward, depending on the length of your rods, but then you wouldn't be able to use if for much else. Anywhere else would just be in the way. I'm a flyfisherman, so wouldn't want to store my 9' rod inside the Roo. Store it in the shell on the pickup instead. Good luck & happy fishin'.
