I made a sliding "shelf" out of 1/2" ply for the back of my truck, that fit between the wheel wells. I screwed eye hooks into the ply, and used bicycle bungies to hold the planes down, and keep them from sliding around. A 4" x 2" slot in the aft middle of the board formed a hand hold for pulling it out.

im using something similar right now but instead a plywood im using a big grill the leng of the bed i can put some of my parkflyers and tie the landig to the grill but i have few of my planes that can not be transported with the wing mount on fuselage.

i want to do something with PVC tubbing to hold fuselage and wing separated.

thanks for your suggestion.
