Solving the 4x8 problem

Recommended Posts

Sure.  Hit the brakes suddenly.  Run over a speed bump.  Drive on uneven pavement.  That plywood won't come down and hit you on the head.

I transported 10 or 11 sheets of 1/2" R-Max insulation a few weeks ago, looks like I didn't take any pics, though. I used a strap at each end to hold it up against the roof and I had about a finger-thickness of space above my head - but, I lean way back compared to most people (back/spine pain). Luckily, I only had to bring them like 5 miles because doing the whole 85 mile drive home wouldn't have been fun. The rest of the trip was on a trailer, instead. Straps are your friend, even in a van! Especially in a van, because that cargo will fly forward in an accident and you don't have much of anything protecting you from the cargo...

Which is why commercial users install those metal screens.  I believe that in Europe, vans are required to have bulkheads.
