Overhead, rear compartment, under vehicle or interior luggage racks are all ways of stowing luggage. What do they mean? What are the benefits?

Over head luggage is a common option. Luggage racks hang from the ceiling and occupants place their shopping bags, back packs or purses on them. These work quite well for general everyday use. The downside we hear from people that own vehicles with this option, the racks become a trash collector.

Rear luggage compartments are also common and can hold large quantities of luggage, golf bags and many other items. Usually the vocation of this vehicle would be long trips, airport shuttles or shopping sprees. The down side, large quantities of bags piled to the ceiling and the driver opening the door as all the bags fall on top of him. It could be dangerous! A good solution is, if you go this route to include a luggage net attached in the door opening.

Another options is under vehicle luggage compartments, these are more common in motor coaches and school buses. Basically, the manufacturer mounts a weather sealed box underneath the bus. A school bus will use this compartment for sports equipment or a student’s gym bag, while a motor coach will store baggage and belongings. The downside, smaller buses on a Ford or Chevrolet chassis don’t offer this option because of the available ground clearance.

Hopefully this information will help you find the right method for your storage dilemma.
