Hi All

Heading away for a month later in the year and am considering buying a rear wheel rubbish bag. Canvas might be the go, tough and breaths.

Will mostly be empty cans needed to "sustain" life the tropics.

Generally burn the rest of our rubbish, pick out the bits not burned next morning and in the bag they go.

7.50x16 splits.

Anyone recommend a good quality supplier?

Thanks

Lyndon

G'day Lyndon

Those rear wheel carrier rubbish bags are a clever idea in principal, not sure if they are value for money.

There are plenty of travelers who cart their garbage around in those canvas bags and my guess is they feel good about it, an admirable thing to do, but they can get very stinky especially on a warm/hot day.

If you are possibly only carrying 'empty cans' ~ why not make your own out of 70 to 90% shade cloth, you can make it as small or large as you like, plus the 'dregs' won't pool in the bottom of the rubbish bag because the shade cloth is technically an open weave product, no dregs = no smell and no flies, plus you not advertising an expensive product, that's for garbage.

Safe travels : Joe Fury

Hi Joe

Good idea, one catch though. The cans necessary to "sustain" life in the top end are best kept out of view, especially in communities.

Cheers

I use a Kings (4WD supacentre) wheel mounted rubbish bag. Only $30 delivered, it has been great over the last couple years. I just put a black rubbish bag in it to keep it clean as we use it for all rubbish, not just cans. So far the straps, clips and zip have been good, no rips in the bag either.

Apologies Lyndon, I've just gone in and had a look and yes there are a couple of messages there. Arrived while I was O/S.

Do you still want me to forward on the contact details?

Cheers Mick

Another vote for Infront Camping. Have a bit of their stuff and always good quality. My spare tyre cover and clip on rubbish bag are about 8 years old and other than being a bit dusty and dirty are still in great nick.

Check the sizes of each bag, used to have a MSA bag that lasted for years but it was on the small side of bags you can get, come time to replace it I went a bag bigger in size then what I had previously. Can’t remember the name of the bag I now have, but being bigger in size is a much better option IMO....easier to put bags full of rubbish inside it.

Hi Lyndon,

I have used a couple of brands. Not entirely happy with either. Both had problems with straps onto the spare wheel..... difficult to apply and not entirely secure against rotating on the wheel. I'm sure that I could devise a better arrangement, in fact I did modify my second one with improvement.
First one detached at the top and inverted, dragging itself down the Birdsville track, which at least dispensed with the need to empty it. lol

Also found that the zippers suffered from dust. Velcro may be better but no experience on that.

Cheers
Allan

Lyndon, seems to me that the ideal would be a 'hood' at the top that simply drops over the spare and one securing strap at the bottom, but no-one seems to make such. They all seem to have multiple complicated straps with flimsy plastic 'buckles'.

I could replace two punctured wheels in the time it takes to remove and replace my bag. Unknown brand ex 4WD shop.

Allan, I have a Black Widow wheel bag, it has a hood that fits over the tyre, with one “occy” strap that goes through a loop at the top, and connects to a “D” ring on each side low down. Not sure if they still make them, as I have had it for several years.

I have an exploroz rubbish bag on the spare wheel. It is well thought out and has a top cover/partitioned to carry plastic bag supply, mesh bottom to let any liquid out....they are a great invention, but can get very dusty on there, and the said dust transfers on to the user easily.

From some of the responses above it would seem that there are several models of bags that attach by means of a 'hood' slipped over the tyre. This is just what I considered would be a good scheme, but I saw none several years ago when I purchased. Consequently I have a bag with more complicated straps than an opera-singers girdle! One of these days.........!!

I also felt that bag closure with velcro would be preferable than zips.
But looking at some links above it would appear that some of them close merely with a loose hood held closed with straps and buckles. Seems to me that would not seal well enough to keep flies out and you could get maggots thriving within the bag. I think velcro or zipper would be preferable.
In fact, I covered the eyelet drain hole in the bottom of mine with plastic fly mesh to exclude flies whilst permitting drainage.

Has anyone here copped maggots in their bag?

Cheers
Allan

Hi Allen, my Black Widow bag uses Velcro to hold the flap closed, and so far, we have not had any issue with maggots.

I've the Ridge Ryder brand from Super Cheap. I think it was ~$40 on sale. It uses straps etc., and is a bit tedious to fit, but interestingly it specifies that it should be taken off when travelling, which sort of negates the purpose of keeping the stinky stuff out of the cab. I have just used mine to keep the possums and rats out of the rubbish bag and mostly have veg food scraps and packaging rather than meat, so it's not too stinky. I use a double bag liner and put it in the rear of the vehicle. I have to attach mine to the camper trailer spare, as the Gen 4 Pajeros have a hard cover over the spare. We will be travelling remotely in a few weeks at lower speeds so might give it a go leaving it attached?

Unfortunately like so much of Australian Manufacturing, cheap Chinese imports saw the demise of Black Widow a few years ago. The original family owned business went into liquidation.

Hi Folks

Thanks for all your replies. I'm normally a big supporter of Aussie products but have this time gone for Chinese junk.

Ordered a Kings Bag delivered for $30

Main reasons is we don't travel that often and have never had a rear wheel rubbish bag. I'll give this one a go, it will at least give us an idea if this is for us. We can then spend some coin and get a better one in the future.

Thanks again

Lyndon
