Twas out playin cars today.

:)

But I do have a rear storage for a GQ forsale... Basic unit with 60ltr water tank incorperated, and 1 large draw to fit 2 gas cyls, and 3 burner BBQ, then 2 compartments for food... Well set up. The other side had a fridge slide in it, and was used for dozen or so trips up north and deserts.

Also 2 side pods that go over the wheel arches. You access from the side rear windows if you like! or inside.
Good for storing spares or quick to get at items..

Would take $300 for it, the water tank expensive by itself.. then the

I do have a rear storage for a GQ forsale... Ply Wood construction with one huge draw in it also a with 60ltr water tank incorperated...

Draw fits 2 gas cyls, and 3 burner BBQ in compartments, then 2 compartments for food...

The other side had a fridge slide in it, and was used for dozen or so trips up north and deserts. Full bearing slides, not crapola. Well set up.

Also 2 side pods that go over the wheel arches. You access from the side rear windows if you like! or inside.

Good for storing spares or quick to get at items..

Would take $300 for it all, the water tank was expensive by itself..

If you live in Port, try PeeCee's in Kuarangi ?? off Acacia Ave (on the corner as you are heading to janelle's). He makes storage units for 4wd's but is not cheap. Maybe thats why your asking around.

I was at long flat yesterday.
If you could send some photos ie internet / digital or via mail i would love to have a look.
I havea brother in Albury and a brother in law at wagga so it would be easy to organise something.

John,

How close to Port Macquarie do you live.

I live in Port and have made my own (with a little help) which you are welcome to look at and copy if you want. Mine is for an 89 Series Cruiser, however it could go in anything with some adjustments if required.

Total cost of mine was approx $500 with heavy duty draw slides, 16mm ply, latches, carpet etc.

Contact me AH on 0412 656842

Hi Cruiser
I live in Bonny Hills so not all far (20ks).
I will give you a call sometime and have a look.
I will also have a look at trucksters and see what I need.
I normallt take a camp trailer when going bush but some of the tracks around Armidale are pretty steep.I can get in ok but the trip out can be a worry so I need to set up the patrol to carry all my gear.
