Looking For Wall Mount Pocket

In my old camper I had this nifty wall pocket made out of perforated metal or aluminum. It was wide enough to put several thick maps or books in - about 16 inches wide and 10 inches long and 3-4 inches deep at the top. It was a gold color and the perforations were in a little pattern. It was very lightweight and you could see what was in it through the perforations.

I have scoured the internet and cannot find one to buy. It was a really handy thing to mount on the wall.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Go to an office supply store and get a wall mount file/magazine holder. They are wedge shaped and hold all you said you wanted. We have one in our Fiber Stream and love it. Got it used for $.50!

Picture tomorrow.

It's possible your magazine rack was an owner made item Nancy.

Thanks for the ideas. These were a commercially made item - I remember them being very popular - altho I may be dating myself.

They were twice the width of the wall letter files but that may be the closest I can come.

I am also thinking of getting this: The Container Store > Silver Mesh Basket Ladder

Walmart has an assortment of desk accessories which are made of mesh and come in two or three colors. Manard's or local hardware stores carry sheets of aluminum with patterns like the ones you describe, in several patterns and two colors... golden and aluminum, if you want to make your own.
Maybe two triangles of oak for the sides and the material for the front.

Hi Lisa,

Yes, that is the one - mine was wider - but the same material.

Do they make these any more - they are so practical.

It could be home made, the material is at Home Depot and other building suppliers. It is meant for covering up the old style radiators in home heating.

Nancy,
I've only seen these magazine racks and light covers on old Campsters and, as you know, these trailers were only made for a few years around 40 years ago. I think Roy is onto something and you might try and fabricate your own rack using materials from Home Depot, metal shears, and bending it around a 2 x 4 or something. As others have suggested, you might also consider going to Staples or Office Depot and purchasing a wall-mounted paper slot simular to those used in doctor's offices. This is the time of the year when your selection is at it's best and you might even find something at Walmart or Target in the school supply department. And don't be afraid to repurpose something. . . what you create might even be better since you can customize it to your specifications! Best of luck to you!
Lisa

I think I found something similar domestic for $10, but the picture is a little small:
