I have been looking storage boxes for some time now. Th ones I have been using to date do not cut the mustard.
I have now found what I think I have been looking for.
(please insert disclaimer here)
I thought I might pass this on for those looking for same.
Company name is "people in plastic"
They have a web site and are in Bris, Syd & Melb.
Hope this is of some help.

Regards and good traveling.

I agree with you Wim, that the search for the best plastic crate is difficult.

I bought some years ago from KMart that fitted the drawers in my 80 series. I successfully transferred them to my 70 series but they were 5mm too wide for the drawers in the 200.

I searched Bunnings... no good.

Then I looked through Howards Storage World and found what I needed.

It's a good feeling when everything works out OK.

I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy

Wim,
The problem is that most plastic boxes are made from Polypropylene. The are ok if made from low MFI co polymer Polypropylene but most are made from high flow (high MFI). The best are made from High Density Polyethylene.. I have in my Trailer, black polypropylene recycle boxes with lids and fit fairly well for my needs. Michael

Best ones I have were purchased from a Fishermans Co-Op in Lakes Entrance 15 years ago. A bit scruffier now and I've lost a lid on one but they have been to hell and back several times and they'll go there again. They'll out live me at this rate and have been used for camping gear, storing fish, storing tools, storing parts, on utes, in wagons, on boats etc etc. The quality of the plastic is incredible and you get what you pay for. Can't remember what I paid for them but did a deal with a fisho so got them a bit cheaper.
