Truckster, There is a company in Milperra, South west Sydney, that make the 50 and 60 litre recycling crates you normally put bottles in. If you like that kind of thing and usually in Black, they also make a simple clip-over lid for them also. They dont normally sell to the public but they have seconds (small imperfections only) they are happy to sell. The company is Bell Plastics P/L. they are a low MFI Polypropylene and tough. I use them in my off road trailer and have bounced them for heaps of outback k's. you cant break em..and of course they are waterproof by the lid design.. Maybe someone in Melbourne that makes a similar item. hope this helps. Michael.

I use those 65 litre Kitab crates from Bunnings. You can get lids that fit and are easy to stack.
Motorbike couriers in Melbourne use them. One can last 3-5 years on a back of a motorbike all day everyday. That's not bad.
Around $35 each and $4 for a lid. But will lats YEARS.
I have 10 and swear by them.

Thems the ones. You can also get some with lids that hinge from one side, or two lids hinged from the side that close in the middle.

Some are supposed to be "security" lids, while others seal out some dust, etc.

I went to Officeworks and they had some underbed storage plastic crates. 850x450mm x 160mm high. were about $25 each and seem really tough but pliable plastic which should not go brittle and bleep ter. Branded as Roll "N Stack.

Just fit in cargo area nicely and everything is right there when you lift the lid rather than buried at the bottom in the deeper squarer tubs. They have wheels but they can be removed. They stack good too.

Cheers

The stackable black recycling tubs with the lids that clip on one side are great. Part number "Nylex - Large, AP0275RC, Stack-N-Nest, Black". I have two stacked east west against the back seat in the GU which leaves the perfect space to wedge a 10l jerry can water container between a 40l Engel. Tough as buggery.

If you are anywhere near the coast find an industrial marine shop. The place the sea rapers shop at, trawlers etc. They have tuff plactic boxes from prawn to dolphin size.
