    Was looking at the action packer 48" but takes like 2 weeks to arrive!! So was wondering does anyone make a steel box like UWS but cheaper that just sits in the bed ? Around 40-48" wide ??

    I found a sturdy(ish) plastic one at the Depot. Far stronger than an action packer but only $40. I'd say that it is approx 40" long?

    We use them every time we travel. Along with The North Face duffel bags there are only 4 things to take into a hotel if we decide to stay in one.

    These were the one's on there at the time. I've since put a Yakima rack on it but I'm rethinking my set up again. Chad is a great guy to deal with if you decide to get some from him. He makes quality stuff. Has a lot of good ideas on here.


    *EDIT* This is my set up right now but I'm thinking of buying a RTT so this will most likely be replaced also.

    As much as I love to ski, I am totally over winter right now. Cabin fever is getting to me and my dogs.

    You and me both brother. You guys have been hit hard. We've only had to deal with it for about 3 weeks. I wish we got snow down here all we get is ice

    Thread hijack over :eek:

    Good call :D

    OP, when you say "cheap", what kind of dollar figure are you talking about?

    Tractor Supply sells a few chest style boxes that may work for you, but I don't know what your spending limit is.

    i ended up buying the smart bin from walmart that was mentioned in another post.. for 40.00 I couldn't pass it up and we got blasted with rain over the last 3 days and is bone dry inside.. I can remove it when I go kayaking and pop it back in the rest of the time ..
