Under Chassis Storage

Post by ymfb1 on Thu Aug 24, 2017 9:45 pm

Whilst looking for solutions for storage (plates) i saw an advert for Under Chassis Storage for RV's in the US.

It struck me that storing hoses and ramps could be with the right bits be a great idea, especially in a PVC where space is more of a premium.

Just wondering if anyone has found a suitable bit of kit especially for a Peugeot Boxer ?

Not found, but made.  smile!

Frees up quite a lot of internal storage space.

Something along the lines of the late-lamented Beeny Boxes ?  We have had these fitted to 2 of our previous vans and they were pretty well perfect solutions . I understand that the original Camborne business was up for takeover but I have not kept up with developments. Does anyone know ?

Beeny Box seem to have ceased trading, maybe temporarily due to a bereavement.  Hope they are getting the love and support needed.

Genie drawers is another option, but probably not on a PVC and none of their examples depict a PVC, shame because they look great.

I don't think I have the time to make and fit something like Gromit has, but over the weekend I will crawl underneath the Kingham and give it a nasty stare.

Any others ?

Beeny Boxes were always made to order and designed on site to fit the space available. We had our first one made quite early on in the firm's history, before they built up a portfolio of off the shelf sizes. I wonder if Genie do the same ? No harm in asking, if the space is there under your van.

You don't have to do it all at once!!  smile!

For various reasons I did it a bit at a time, and the job spread over nearly two weeks.

It's the nasty stare that takes the time - eyeing it up and the designing and measuring. Making it is the easy bit.  up!

Rooting around in my very long term and increasingly sparse memories, (pre WW2 !) I recall a caravan owned by a family friend which had a rectangular box centrally below the floor. It was used for tinned food storage and was accessed from inside the caravan via a hinged trapdoor.  The principle is still viable if you can find space between tanks, pipes, cables etc.  Keith
