I don't think anyone sells them as a standard item. You'll probably need to look at having something custom made, or talk to your CT manufacturer if you know they make one for their range.

Head to somewhere like Ovesco.com.au for some slides to fit the tray you'd get made at the same time.

why not draw one up to your specs then you can have it store parts that you don't realy have the right space - eg solar panels and build to store. I am looking to cut up my 40k Complete Campsite cause it doesn't suit generic avalible parts.

also if you you build it with a gull wing design you can get better access to it
Camper delivered as expected. Price does not always equal quality. But each to their own!

Hi,
A couple of options, 1. I know that cub campers sell a fridge box seperately from their campers, they were expensive about $2,500 with fridge slide and all. 2. I got an aluminium fabricator in Brisbane to make mine how i wanted it.

The draw bar had two angle welded to attach the front box to. Just bolted straight through.

Hi Nical,
thanks for that, if you don't mind me asking, how much did that cost?

Regards

The made me a 2.5mm checkerplate aluminium toolbox, 1700x500x700 (huge) with a T-bar closing and sealed door on either end similar to the one in the photo. I also had some reinforcing angle welded onto it so I could strap stuff to the top. Also some angle onto the front corners so I could run some shade cloth to it for a stone guard. Company called Tong Metal, they will make you just about anything, from aluminium, quite a good bloke really.
