Hi all

Have seen a couple of these being marketed. Southern Cross, Michelles and another. First 2 both similar, ie solid material. The other I have seen - at Toyota Landcruiser Club meeting - is made of a mesh material. They seem like a good idea to hang the rubbish on the spare wheel, keep it out of the car. I suppose can throw it on the roof rack but then have to make sure it does not fall off.

Anyone used the mesh type? Looks like an advantage would be air circulation and maybe ease of washing / rinsing but then the mesh might let flies in. Would plan to use it on longer trips with a burn and rake philosophy so shouldn't be any "messy" rubbish.

Anyone had any problems with it hanging off the tyre - particularly in Qld LOL.

Comments appreciated

Hi GazzaS Yeh I got one off John its made of shade cloth so it is fairly solid.
Have not needed to use it yet but I did fit it to to spare & got some photo's for someone else, thing is if gear is wet it will breath & rubbish would be best in a plastic bag as well.

If you are at the meeting on tuesday night say hello, usually up the back near the bar.

Cheers

I will second Bernie's comments.
I have one of John Whimpys bags from TLC, good stuff.
Bit heavier than shade cloth per say, no worries though good bag.

As Bernie said come and say Hello at the TLC meeting, we are normally leaning on the bar up the back corner near the sign in sheets.
I'm the tall one he's the short one, I'm the better looking one. LOL

I've seen them used for your dirty snatch strap. Keeps it out of the vehicle and easily accessed.

Hi Gazza

I can't help with the mesh one, but we have a canvas one which has been great. We put the rubbish in plastic shopping bags so that the canvas doesn't get too revolting. We have had no problems with flies, but the pesky little possums know how to get into them!! It is good to be able to take you rubbish out of the bush and get rid of it somewhere more suitable.

Cheers
Anni

We made our own not hard really.

It was dusty at Hill End as you can see by the colour of the bag and back door, the bag is grey & maroon.

Why would you waste the money? Whats wrong with plastic bags? Everything you buy from shops comes in them...
