Cargo nets?

I am looking for cargo nets, like this one.

Boat Cargo Net, Large, 22" x 28",T-H MARINE,BCN-3-DP

I've tried lots of search terms and this is the only one I have come up with that looks good for a wall mount, hammock style. Maybe. I have read reports of false advertising and really crummy, flimsy nets, especially the Highland. This one looks like it could be good, but I am interested in more options and maybe a report from someone who has actually bought a good one...

Good Morning,
Here is a cargo hammock I have used with success. I found it works
best strung fore and aft in the trailer so it does not swing much with
motion. It is quite strong and durable. Be sure to have strong hooks
to suspend it from as it tends to gather many things. If there is fruit
in it I take it down for travel.

Take Care, Larry H

A couple of macrame hooks and we hung this hammock from our GMC Safarri van in the trailer as a place for wet outer clothing on rainy days.

That second one looks good. I'm looking to put something like that on the wall. Maybe I'll look at car/truck accessory places.

I have used several cargo nets, that came out of vehicles like SUVs and minivans, they work great for extra out of the way storage, look on ebay maybe.

Here are a couple of pics of the ones I have and how I use them.

Yeah- head for the wrecking yard. Minivans, luxury cars, etc have them in the cargo area. Should be very inexpensive, especially at your local "Pik-A-Part"

Pindraak - How do you plan to attach them to the wall? I love the idea of the cargo nets put up on a side wall for all the junk that acumulates on the benches, but with a 13" Scamp covered in rat fur, I'm wondering how I'd attach it?

I think one side would screw in to the kitchen cabinets, but we don't have front cabinets to attach the other end to. Maybe the front curtain rod? Wouldn't be a very straight cargo net.

Bigfoots have thin plywood panel walls that you can screw into, which are a little stronger than most, I hear. Not that strong though, so you could have a point: holding up a bunch of stuff in a net mostly on just the top two screws might be too much. My thought if one screw is too flimsy is to distribute the load to a larger area, using multiple screws and/or adhesive, via a reinforcement plate or plates. The cord-holding bracket/loop would be bolted or screwed to probably rectangular pieces of something stronger than the wall board, then that piece glued to the wall, or screwed with multiple little screws. This takes you from failure via the force needed to pull one screw out, to something more like the force needed to rip a reinforcement-sized chunk of the wall board out. I have been using pieces of 1/4" thick aluminum plate for various similar purposes in my trailer, but you could also use plywood or plastic sheeting of some sort.
