    Yep a big fan of drawers too...

    I like the little partition you have in the drawer. Might have to steal that idea.

    Mark, do you remember the big timber setup I scored off you few years ago? Was my first set of draws/fridge cage so to speak and needed a rear spring upgrade after it

    Horses for courses with draws. Travelling a lot and a GVM kit, it makes sense. I had them and never again in the GU. 70kg+(Kings) of permanent weight, to carry and sort out 20kg or so worth of gear/food for me. For just a daily driver and a weekender trip every now and then, the maths doesn't add up.
    With the GU (unless you've got the upgrade). Set of draws, full tank and passenger and you're tickling the upper GVM threshold as it is. Not even taking account everything else like bars, winch etc...
    I now sort my stuff out in those expedition tubs. When not travelling they're in the garage, ready to load up whenever at moments notice. And got the whole space in the rear to use for whatever when not going away.

    Set of Drawers is no heavier than the average passenger. You have an allowance for 6 passengers plus the driver at 80kgs each, but not a whole lot left after that. Each to their own I guess. My Patrol is a weekender, I don't require the empty space in the back. Drawers suit my needs.

    Leading Horses to water is easy, making them drink for their own benefit is another story. Mr Plod is definitely ramping up weighbridges/mobile pads all over the country, have witnessed many highway say caravan weekenders after the Covid rush being called on in for checks whilst passing by.

    I got my welding bench on wheels! It's been a bloody heavy thorn in my side for ages, now it's a breeze to move. Did a bit more tidying up, need more materials for new benches.
    Note: Nothing is in its resting place, I'm just moving stuff to make room for stuff at the moment. The welding bench will end up full of the stuff on the shelves soon so I can dismantle and rebuild to suit the new space. Still it's the small victories at the moment!20220503_213658.jpg20220503_213706.jpg20220503_213714.jpg

    Most noticeably between various States here in Australia with Covid lingering border open/closure crazy rules the last few years.
    Most of Australia blamed retiree Victorian citizens for rushing borders to beat ridiculous State lockdowns by midnight but I’ve also legally been out on our National highways throughout and watched NSW city folks getting slammed by NSW deep inland forces for escaping their overladen internal duramaxstictions etc….
