Comment: ExplorOz Spare Wheel Rubbish Bag

I have the spare wheel on the back of my troopy tray fitted with an Obieco wheel lifter - any chance one of these would fit??

Can't you figure it out for yourself?

If it doesn't fit and if you want to save some $ and if you dont mind doing some fiddling yourself....
Have a look at a wool bale. You can cut these down/work out a way to hang it from spare wheel etc.
Something satisfyingly Oz traditional about using a wool bale. You can usually get them for nothing at a big wool store.

Thanks Mike, might be a good idea. The problem I have is the Obieco lifter is outside and around the spare ..... most of the wheel bags are designed to fit over the spare... - might look something like a hessian bag with straps or similar material

Depends how flash you want it to look I have seen one of those telstra type lifters with a large back pack from one of the cheap shops under $20 and it worked a treat
He used the existing straps to attach it to the lifter, the top bar of the lifter had a bit of box with two loops on the end for the shoulder straps (it was cable tied for easy removal) and the waist strap just went around the lifter
I took note because I intended to do the same but haven't got around to it yet
Cheers Kev

Kev, that's probably the best idea I've heard so far - didn't think of that. I like the look of the E-Oz bags, however they probably have to fit inside the lifter, which is no good.

Can you load a pic of the carrier? The bag sits over the top of the wheel only and is secured by straps from behind. If youdo get one and it does not fit just send it back to us for credit or list it fir free in the classifieds.

If you show me a pic of the setup I will be able to advise anyway!

Thanks David - my question was really had anyone fixed one of these over an Obieco ... I don't have a current photo of the 40 with the tire in place, however this link to photo will give an idea ...

Scott,
Sorry for the delay - unfortunately it will not work with this carrier.

David, many thanks for the response - sort of figured as much, however by asking the question I've got a few useful responses above

Now if you had an ExplorOz canvas backpack........ :-)

Hi, have you thought about sewing longer straps on that clip at the back or on the side , maybe you could talk to an upholsterer that is a little switched on , good luck ,Judy

I am thinking of getting one to mount on the spare wheel of the caravan. Is there any way of securing it from theft? The low life`s are welcome to my rubbish but not the bag! Regards G.T.

The bags have three tags on the back one at the bottom and one on each side. These are where the shock cord or ocky strap goes that holds the cover one. There is nothing to stop you from using cable, chain or something similar to hold it in place.

I use the thing all the time when we travel and wonder how we did without it - I remember stuffing bags into bags on the roof rack - ah the joy - not.
