i was wondering if you guys would give me a vote on a water starage unit incorpirated with your rear draw set up , just a yes I would want one , or a no I wouldnt would be great .

And if you read this Rosco , would a wold down section infront of the _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx suit your need for a table ? just playing with some ideas .
Started the first proto type today , looking good , still to heavy , i am sitting on the 20 kg range , I need it to get down to 12 or 15 complete .Venus Bay

The water tank would be at the rear of the _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx , between seats and _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx complete with pump . The tap would be neext to the _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx , i know this would make the _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx 130 mm shorter . But would be sold as seperate system Venus Bay

If you were going to build a water storage unit in with the _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx then you must go for a 100 litre one. It should have and outside filler cap or one facing the rear of the vehicle and also a tap.

Yes, I would want one if I had the right vehicle to fit the _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx in :-)))

I'd have to say yes as the loss of drawer length is not enough to worry about and it's a bloody good idea whether I need it often enough or not !Live the life you love -

Eric, I noticed you carry your spare on the rear. I saw a great little cradle made to carry 2 jerry cans underneath an 80 that is pulled up on the chain.
Back to the question. No I wouldn't put it in a tank. One leak and you have nothing, don't put all your eggs in one basket. Craig...............

I constructed a steel frame that bolts to the rear seat mount on a 3l patrol.
This frame has a lightweight square section just behind the rear passenger seats.
The box section serves two purposes, firstly to secure 4 x 10 litre water containers and secondly to secure my drawer system.
The water container height is the same as my drawer system, this provides a level height troughout the rear section.
I have photos etc if you want any further info

Eric

Personally I'd pass up on sacrificing drawer space for water storage, but that's probably got more to do with the shape of my truck and the adequate storage capacity which remains.

My drawer is completely full as it is with tools, spares and recovery gear and at this stage that's how I intend it to stay. I could probably slip in 6-8 tea bags but that's about it.

Regarding the table aspect, any setup would suffice ... as long as it was big enough to be useable area, certainly no smaller than the area of a drop down tailgate for example.

Yep.

Currently planning a home jobbie which will have water stored behind the cargo barrier. As is always said multiple containers is good so two side by side would take care of it.
