Hello everyone! This is my first time on here because I just got a 2011 CR-V this week. I was thinking about buying a cargo shelf. The thing that goes in the back to make you have two levels of storage.

Does anyone else have this and is it worth it?

It's like $300ish with Dealership but does anyone know where to buy it a little cheaper?

Thanks! I have read lots of good feedback on here!

I wanted one for mine, but choked on the price of buying one. I spent $4 for a sheet of plywood and a couple hours with my jigsaw cutting it to shape, and it works great. Also good for hiding things underneath it if want them out of sight.

The plywood option mentioned above seems to be a popular alternative. Assuming your wood working skills are up to the challenge.

Congrats on the new V!

Online prices are normally much less, but in this case your dealership is giving you a good price considering the list price is $400.

I like Bernardi's Honda for parts. Their online price is currently $296...

What model CRV did you get? I'm not sure about the 2011's but in 2008 the LX models not only didn't come with the shelf, the side moldings didn't have the side rails to mount a shelf.

At first I wasn't sold on the mid-level shelf, but eventually came 'round to liking it. With the back of the panel folded up, the shelf is just the right height to keep groceries in place (groceries in paper bags anyway).

$300 for the shelf is ridiculous.

I'd x2 the plywood shelf, if you are capable of doing this yourself. You can even cover it in matching carpet for far, FAR less money, and the weight rating would be higher than the plastic OEM piece.

do NOT pay $300 to $400!!! Ebay has them for less than $92 shipping already included. They have both black and tan colors. Youre welcome! :)

According to Bernadi Honda the self is the same part number for 2011 LX and SE models and 2007-2011 EX and EX-L models.

My 07 CR-V EX came with the shelf. After about two weeks I took it out and stored it in the garage. IMHO the cargo area is more versatile/useful with out the shelf. I did get a cargo cover which, not only hides items in cargo area, but reduces road noise as well.

We too, took out the shelf. It was OK at first, but it does limit the cargo carrying capacity of the already smaller cargo bay when compared to Gen 2.

You can't put anything significant on the shelf, just a couple of grocery bags, maybe...

It is great when you buy a lot of groceries, and need to keep the chips and tomatoes from being crushed by the rolling watermelon... ha ha ha

If anyone wants it, we are willing to part with it for a reasonable amount... :shock:
