I do recall seeing something on this site a fair while ago, I have tried a search of the site with no luck

Can anyone suggest a company in Brissy that sells plastic storage boxes that are durable enough for use in an off road camper trailer. I want something that will last.

we use nylex crates with lids in our off road camper they will sit on top of one another and they are tough,we have had them 2 years now,done the flinders ranges, innaminka, etc,plus heaps of weekend stuff,we also empty one and bath the kids in it. they are available in bunnings for about 40 to 50 bucks.

We use the same, found them to be virtually indestuctable, we boughtours at K-Mart for $29.95.
Spacecase would be overkill for inside a trailer, ok for on the roof.

We have used all sorts. Just work out how big they can be and go to KMart or BigW. Look for anything that seems sturdy. Big boxes are ok but make sure you and anyone else with you can lift them when full. If you are hurt someone else will have to pack up. Try to avoid boxes with excessively sloping sides as it just creates unusable space. We avoid anything with wheels as we have found that while the wheels let them slide out easily the wheel mounts usually split the bottom of the box fairly quickly. Also make sure the lids clip on in some way. Most of the lids are tight enough to keep out any dust etc without costing too much. If you are feeling rich TJM and ARB sell some really good boxes with hinges in just about every size and shape but they are ~$250 each.

100 Series,
Bought 6 x 68 lt Nally Plastic Bins (food grade) from the following in Brisbane.
81 REGINALD STREET (Cnr Reginald St. and Boundary Road)
Ph :- (07) 3275 2011
This was a couple of years ago and they cost $32.79 each with lids.
These are the ones that you sometime see around fishing boats. Very strong. Stackable. You can get different colours.
They fit in my C/T with about 1 inch to spare at the top.
They have smaller ones in height but the same rectangular size.
I don't come from Brisbane so i do not know if the company is still a goer or if they have shifted.
Disclaimer :- Have no shares, no relatives or any other connection with the company. LOL.
Work is the curse of the down and out bludger.
