    Don, I like the look and size of that shopvac. I think it might make sense in my truck. What brand is it? More importantly does it suck, or does it REALLY suck?

    btw: I store my 10' pipe about 12" off the deck on the driver side (sliding door is in the way on the passenger side). This allows me to store things on the bottom and the pipe is at a height I can just grab and go from the back. I wish I had more room so I could store short pieces vertically. As with any finite space, there's always more stuff I could fit in there then there's actually room for.

    I would show pictures of my bin setup but I don't want to make anyone envious.
    I want pictures of your set up right now no excuses LOL
    The shop vac is "Shop Vac" brand Cheapo from Lowes & it works great, it sucks. Has a 25' hose, so it works out nice if I'm in a small bathroom, I just set it outside the room. I also use it alot for sucking out water pipes, when I'm soldering too,{ too cheap to buy pro-press}. Just amazing how many times and things I can use it for, when it is readily available.

      I can store 9"6" pieces of pipe in the pipe slot
      wrenches and treading gear go in the back drawers

      I store nipples and small every day hand tools in the side drawers.
      The large cabinet holds my delta parts and other parts i use every day
      Long lengths of pipe go on my top rack with my ladder

            I ended up puting the pipe on the top shelf and securing it with bungee cords. Since most of my work is drain cleaning, I don't have to deal with it all the time.
            Buy cheap, buy twice.
