Using Bunk as Storage while traveling

Since we have no children and both of us are fairly short we want to use the top bunk area in our ACE 30.1 for storage. We know it is limited in weight, and we have bins we can put up there. What we are looking for is anything that will help keep the items from sliding off the bunk if we have to make a quick stop or have a minor accident (heaven forbid). Has anyone found something to use to sort of enclose the bunk area?
Thanks,

Use a cargo net from a pick up strong and easy to install

Thanks, fhenn. Now I just have to figure out a good way to install one (I am slightly mechanically challenged).

You can also get one of those bed rails that you use to keep your toddlers from rolling out of bed.



I have seen them in various lengths, up to around 60". This was an idea I had last year for storage in our Class C's overhead bunk, but have not bought one yet.

If you have an inflatable mattress, it might not work, but if you have a regular mattress like a Class C has, the rail just tucks under the mattress.

It does have a thin mattress, but that might work. I'll look into them. Thanks.
