  • 1995 RRC LWB

so i'm looking for suggestions..

 

criteria:

 

1) i want to leave most of my kitchen stuff in it

2) durable as i will probably strap it to the roof

3) legs, food prep surface and place for a stove

4) i don't want something that looks like it belongs in jay leno's garage.. some of these things cost as much as a old disco!

 

thanks!

Hm..don't have an exact solution but I've been using an REI folding camp kitchen setup and a Plano tote for the gear.

I got nuthin.  I just use Ridged stackable containers.  About the same effect as using a Pelican but cheaper.

 

This sounds like the sort of thing you'd find on ExPo.

It's true. RedRover has a rear ladder because I had a dream.

And a photo of an old Camel Trophy RRC.

When I was planning my rear bumper build I saw a few pics of a RRC that had a larger pelican case bolted to a swing out that acted as a kitchen.  The idea was that you open the swing out,drop the tail gate as your work surface, open the case and all your stuff is right there.  I cant remember it it had a drop down table from the other half of the swing though.   Maybe I can find the pictures again.

Our kitchen box is a large action packer with 4 of the "really useful" containers inside to subdivide the smaller stuff and keep it easier to organize. Initially we used just the action packer and lego'd all the stuff in there. Worked great for general storage, but if you actually wanted to get something out you would end up emptying half the box to get to what you needed. No bueno..  With the smaller containers inside it makes it a lot easier to get to what you need. For a table we have one of those roll top aluminum jobbers, IIRC ours is a Kelty that I picked up on Craigslist for 20 a few years ago.

Lol. Nick's got his entire rear half filled with gas, a spare tire, 4 max tracs, and a thrash a roo. Looking like a lot of junk in the trunk.

I use a pelican 1650 with the lid organizer when the whole family goes. I did see a thread somewhere where a guy used the 1650 but added fold out cutting boards to each side and legs that could be attached to make it a good height to cook on. Tried to find it but my Google foo is not working today.

I can modify your max tracs into a table with legs. Then use another set for drawers and a sink. Get one of those fancy awnings and bam. Full kitchen.
