UHaul / Burro Sink Shelf

I decided to add a shelf behind the sink and stove on my UHaul. The Burro is so similar that I'm sure the same technique would work. In a previous post, I showed my overhead shelves.

I decided to continue with this theme using 3/16" underlayment for the shelf painted with exterior grade mildew resistant enamel colored to match the gel coat. The framing is L shaped extruded aluminum with an anodized finish (see cross section in photo).

The shelf is supported with aluminum L brackets attached to the wall with 3M VHB tape.

  • The first picture shows the shelf in place.
  • Second picture shows shelf from angle view.
  • Third picture shows the topside.
  • Fourth picture shows the bottom side.
  • Fifth picture shows the shelf cross section.
  • Sixth picture shows the mitered corner that allowed the aluminum to be bent into a corner.

Nice work, there Tom...I'm impressed with your craftsmanship!

Was that left over extrusion from a window or did you purchase it for this project? What's the weight rating on the 3M VHB tape you used?

Thanks. I picked up the extrusion at my local metal recycler. It appears to be new but maybe blemished or seconds or ???? Cost was $1 for 10 feet. The adhesive I used is 3M 4941 which is rated at 85# / square inch. I used 4 brackets with about 3 square inches each. Should hold a ketchup bottle.

Fair exchange, I'm still working on copying your window awnings.

This shelf mod is very, very nice and functional! Good for you Tom I'm betting we see more of these in U-Hauls AND Burros.
