Default Adventure Trailers Cargo Drawers

So I finally got round to installing the AT cargo drawers.
http://www.adventuretrailers.com/drawer.html

I ordered a 36A and 36B to put side by side.

I got the composite material ones, and I must say the material they used were very light weight as the slides was the heaviest item by far in the box. I would estimate that they weight about 40lbs a piece if that.

The drawers arrived in boxes and had to be assembled, IKEA style. It took a couple of hours to get these ones assembled as there are many components, and they are tricky. Basically take your time and be careful as the instructions are not always 100% clear and it is easy to make a mistake.

AT shipped me some allen bolts and tnuts to connect the 2 drawers together. Just drill couple of 5/16' holes and you are there. I had to run to the hardware store and buy some L brackets to mount them to the truck. I also bout some tnuts and bolts of various lengths to fit just right to the drawer box, being careful not to have anything that stuck too deep into the box.

The mounting was actually much easier than assembly. Also note to wear gloves during assembly as the material seem to nick skin easily, almost like fiberglass.

The interior space of each drawer is pretty useful. I was able to put a lot of tools and some spares in the one below the fridge. The taller one fitted all my recovery gear, camping gear and a spare CV axle assembly (still has some room to spare).

I cut some old carpet and put it the drawers, just in the event that there might be rattles with the tools inside. Will see how that works out.

As a side note the 12" drawer just fitted inside, with probably a little room left if someone really needs to go a bit bigger.

Anyway below are the pix.

Yes, I still can but it is pretty high up now. Shorter people will have difficulty, so they might have to climb on the bumper or something or get a step pf some sorts.

Very cool. I think I am going to go this direction too. Looks like it could easily be modified to add extra material for the dog on the left, might even be able to attatch my current flap onto it.

The material is pretty easy to work with. Just get Tnuts to attach stuff to the drawers, that way noting intrudes too far.

I need to get a pet/cargo barrier to put in the back now to seal off the space. A couple of tie downs will also be good to add on the sides of the taller drawer.

That is a nice set up, so much prettier than it was two weeks ago, nice and organized.

If I have to step on the bumper that is fine by me

Oh, and glad to see you have your tow strap on top of the rest of your "stuff" so no more excuses

Thx.

I figured most folks will find a way to get into the fridge.

Yeah at least I can get to stuff now without a major hassle. The action packers became a pain to undo and unpack to get to stuff.

Very nice. I have since put in a pet barrier similar to yours Joel.

I do need to get those side hinges for the fridge though, they will make accesing the fridge much easier.

Just a standard SUV pet barrier. I think I saw them at Findlay last time I was in there.

I got my pet barrier at a local pet store. You can also get it at mats.com (much cheaper than the local store, but shipping kinda kills the price difference).


BTW: Your goatie looks so 90s

Same fridge, his has the cover on it. I need to have my cover modified at an upholstery place to allow the lid to flip the new direction.
