Show me your storage boxes

Please post photos of the inside of your storage boxes.

I am looking for ideas. I am trying to get a feel for what will and how to organize it.

If this topic has already been covered, I apologize in advance.

Thanks.

Usage of the box will vary depending on existing content (battery) and the items you're looking to carry. I split our box into 6 spaces and placed items in the spot they fit the best.

Overall, we're really glad we ordered the box. It makes life easier.

Storage Box

Looks like a lot of room. Thanks for the photos.

I wish we could "" your response. We agree wholeheartedly!

From driver side to passenger side:

- large REI 6 person tent -> https://www.rei.com/product/862430/r...se-camp-6-tent
- hitch wheel (at the bottom under the tent)
- detachable power cord on top of tent
- wheel lock on top of tent -> this is pictured, but I now don't ever put it in there since it either lives on the wheel or in my trunk.
- stabilizer crank on top of tent and cord and wheel lock
- stack of about 20 Tri-Lynx levelers (removed from their nylon bags)
- the fire pit that ETI sells in front -> http://www.port-a-fire.ca
- 25' water hose stored inside the fire pit hole on the bottom of the fire pit (this is surprisingly very easy to access)
- 2 REI chairs rearwards (these hold the fire pit perfectly in place)
- NOT SHOWN, but I now have 2 Big Agnes Chair ones on top of the REI chairs as I couldn't fit 2 more REI chairs in there -> https://www.bigagnes.com/Chair-One
- NOT SHOWN: 4 rubber chocks -> https://www.amazon.com/Fasmov-Solid-...2CX6VJCFY4CDJ4
- NOT SHOWN: 2 Tri-Lynx chocks (these fit perfectly in the corner of the storage box in the triangular section) -> https://www.amazon.com/Tri-Lynx-0001.../dp/B000UODGIY
- NOT SHOWN: several 1lb propane bottles in the bottom of the passenger side well
- NOT SHOWN: 50 amp to 30 amp adapter (in plastic bag) -> https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
- NOT SHOWN: 15 amp to 30 amp adapter (in plastic bag) (from ETI)
- NOT SHOWN: small metallic shovel
- NOT SHOWN: hammock

All the "NOT SHOWN" items are in the far left side (passenger side) next to the fire pit)

You need to have a little room for the closing hinge. The stabilizer crank arm is perfect for there and I put stuff on either side of the hinge (power cord and wheel lock)

Does anyone have pictures of (or can tell me) what will fit in the box when you have two batteries on the front? We have a 19’.
Thanks!

Paul,
Do you think your 100 lb capacity may have been exceeded, that tent and fire pit must weigh 50 lbs at least, just curious? Neat packing....also why do you have a 50/30 adapter, do you have a 50 amp cord?

I carry a 50-30 that lets me plug my 30A cord into a 50A outlet, just in case I run into a pedestal with a dead 30A (I've heard it happens)

I don't have a picture of my cargo box but its pretty chaotic right now. gobs and gobs of 'lego plates', a dual wheel andersen leveler kit, plenty of tire wedges, the crank for the Bal stabilizers, the foot for the nose jack, a 'cone' for the nose jack, several hammers, a nail puller modified to pull camping spikes, my white water and sewer wash hoses, my 30A cord, and a 30A exension cord, and a orange road cone.

If the 15 and 30 amp plugs are not working, I move elsewhere, that is an expensive accessory to eliminate someone else's problem, no?
