Mini Cargo Van Shelving Setups

Tons of great info on the trailer & can/truck threads, but does anyone have any insight/pics relating to the new popularity of transit connects and the like?

I just picked up a promaster city and need to get it set up for my daily use. I have a bunch of tool boxes that I use to roll/carry into the worksite, so I want to devote most space towards them. I think building wood shelves is my best option. Space/weight is a premium in these vans. It would be great to see what has been done in others before I start mine.

I've rebuilt my trailer a few times, and really don't know the best way to fabricate/attach shelves for the van.

Here's the boxes that I use.

Re: Mini Cargo Van Shelving Setups

Nobody has found some creative solutions?

So far I have narrowed down shelving between American Van or Ranger designs. They seem to be the only ones that offer a contoured shelf to hug the side wall. Others must be placed in front of the wheel well or raise the bottom shelf up over the wheel, both are not ideal. Very disappointed that weather gaurd doesn't have one to fit properly since they have 13" deep shelfs which will fit my baskets.
