Rarely is there a product that I get so jazzed about that I feel I have to post about it.This is an exception. For months I debated on what to do for a drawer system for the back of my Landcruiser. I could make one but just could never find the time between work and family. I looked at various products already on the market but they fell short for a few reasons. First was cost, second was availabilty for my specific vehicle and third was weight. Weight was the biggy for me. The 80 series land cruiser already weighs enough as it is. I would rather carry a hundred pounds of useful expo gear than a 100 pounds of dead weight. Just before Christmas I went by Adventure Trailers to visit with Mario to see what new products he had floating around in his head. It was at this point he spoke of the new composite material he was working with for the trailers. He then also mentioned the soon to be released Modular Drawer Systems which was to be offered in both the composite and wood.
Finally a solution to my storage problems and out came the check book. I knew it was going to be a few weeks because of the holidays and their recent move to a new building but it was worth the wait.
I ordered two of the A36 drawers made of the composite. It came neatly packaged in two boxes complete with hardware and instructions. Before even opening i was surprised how light the package was and was nervous for a second that it was missing parts. Got it opened and did an inventory and sure enough everything was there right down to the last screw. All the parts are of high quality and the hardware looks sturdy and clean. It required very basic tools to assemble. The kit included two allen wrenches and a special "jak nut" spanner. It took me just over two hours to assemble both drawers. It was a lot like putting together a piece of furniture from Ikea. It was obvious a lot of thought was put in to it to make it strong and easy to put together.
So if you are looking for storage solutions contact Adventure Trailers. They have really out done themselves this time. The cost versus quailty cannot be beat. Here are a few pics of the build process.
