Bourton Bin Empty Bourton Bin

Post by BornAgain Wed Apr 06, 2022 4:58 pm

Having spent a small fortune on a brand new Bourton it seems churlish to moan about the waste bin on the habitation door but the design has changed from our previous Broadway which had a removable inner container. The "new" bin is semicircular profile with lid but no inner container. The only thing we can think to do is to put a plastic bag inside the bin and find a way to clip it to the sides to keep it in place.  Not very easy or sensible.

Does anybody have a work around?

Note: I would post photos but haven't a clue how to transfer from the Photos app on my Mac to this post!

Thought I had figured out the photos, but got sent into cyberspace I think.  What does "Send image to selected category" do?? Are the photos to big a file size??

I don't have experience of this type but I believe there is a 10 litre Brabantia bin that directly replaces it, available from Amazon.

I remember contributing to a thread on this topic, with a photo - but I'm afraid I can't find it.

But in short, I use a plastic bag to line the bin; I tie a thin thread at one end of the straight (hinge) side of the bin's plastic D loop, and to that string I've tied two terry clips. The clips are spaced equally along the straight hinge bar. The bag is fed upwards through the hinged D ring,  and is wrapped around it and held in place on the hinge side by the 2 clips. Then the other side of the top of the bag is wrapped over the round part of the D, which is then pushed down into the bin front, which keeps it secure.

Wish I could find the photo!

I replaced the 'stock' bin on my Broadway with the one recommended by Paulmold - much better than the original. The only problem I had was that the bin is easily dislodged, say if you knock it with your foot on entering the van. I cured this by adding some thin bunny cord to secure the bin at the bottom, and another to hold the bag in.

I'm away this weekend but I'll try and remember to get some photos........

Thanks for the replies. Have seen the Brabantia on Amazon and will check it out. Not sure how I would fix it in place but there appears to be two side screws retaining the existing assembly and maybe I can use the same fixings.

Thanks Cymric but there is no D loop on the new bin. That’s the problem - it is an empty smooth sided container with a hinged lid.

Hi, I’m new here too and like you I have just purchased a new Bourton. I’m just back from a few nights trying things out. The bin as you say is not very practical in its current form, so being a “serial modifier” I have added an elastic bungee as per photo. I actual think this is how it should have been supplied as there is a groove to accommodate the bungee and a flat area either end for the bungee to pass through. Two holes, two flat washers and a length of bungee cord. It’s still to be road tested but I think it will work.

We use ours for storing all the oddments, cables, and bits. If you use bags similar to the larger dog poo bags, you can then dispose of them once or twice a day, about the size of the plastic bags for fruit you used be able to get when Sainsbury had them on a roll for customers to use.

Thanks for all the replies. It does look as though it’s designed for an elastic retainer but when I checked with my dealer they said that the parts list shows no other components. For now we are just using fold-down clips and will see how it goes.

Like   [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]    ....    Instead of a bungee cord I have used "knicker elastic" tied around the groove on the bin to hold the plastic bag in place !  Not ideal ...   but works!!

I assume you drilled a couple of holes at the sides of the bin to secure the bungee strap or the elastic?

Actually, I took the bin out and passed elastic around the back and refitted the bin so no holes needed.  Will see how well it works.
