Hi there,
if you are after built in storage then Mobile Storage Systems are pricey but very good.

In the back of our 110 three door we bolted in a T-chest for our spares etc, a longline drawer for our cooking stuff, on the right hand side a long storage box for food, on the left a bank of six stackable boxes for our clothes (there are three of us) then lastly a cooker housing on the rear door.

the boxes were all good quality, light and secure - we were very happy with them.

Hi All
Me and we are also planning to build some storage boxes with drawers.
We will build them in marine plywood.
Currently we are looking for a locking mechanism. The ideal would be something that could be used as a handle and hatch at the same time similar to the ones used on commercial ARB storage drawers.
Any hints?

Do you mean this?



If so I don't know anywhere personally, but by seeing a photo, somebody else may be able to help.

Those drawers look great, although you got to feel sorry for the bloke demonstrating them, what with his broken left thumb that now can only point permanently in the air!

Actually belong to a mate. Cost came in at about $800 Australian plus a weekends labour. That's excluding the electrical goodies.

If you blokes want some done just bring your rigs to my place. Very Happy
