Plumbing work van setup?

Anyone have a 250 Transit Med Roof setup?

I went with the basic shelving unit setup and $1k rebate from dealer

Looking to setup something inside to hang 10' pipe, just wondering if anyone has come up with something that might help me dicide the best way to do so ...

Don't want to add roof racks or anything to roof and trying to set something up so not to lose any shelf and/or minimal head space

Thanks in advance for any help!

Mine is a low roof, but I made this rack for inside because I also did not want anything on the roof. I can get 9' 9" lengths inside of the rack. Medium roof may allow a full 10 feet. My bulkhead limited my length.

I'm a electrical contractor and in my sprinter I installed 2 4" tubes for conduit and 1 2" for ground rods. I just used unistrut to the ceiling and unistrut clamps.

yes, you see no pipe. It is in the long shelf on top of the shelving units. I can carry several feet of 1/2 and 3/4 inch pipe. It will also hold a piece or two of 2 or 3 inch pvc. No issues with rolling out, and can carry short lengths also, unlike a tube setup.

My bulkhead is a Sortimo from Knaphiede. Pricey but fit well, and no rattles.

Oops. I have cardboard on teh floor, helps protect the mats, and is softer on my knees. Also easy to replace, keeping the mats clean.

I could see no roof racks on high roof vans because it's just too much of pain in the ass to get stuff on and off the roof. Just curious why you guys went with low roof vans and no roof racks. You parking them in a garage?
