    Hey guys, I got to thinking the other day...

    What do you do for dry storage, in the bed. Say you are going camping, have 4 people in the cab. Need to carry luggage, outdoor gear, groceries, etc in the back, and you want to keep it dry.

    cover or cap is not an option.

    A tarp is always an option, but rarely actually waterproof...

    Thanks

    Drybags are your best bet if whatever you're hauling has to stay 100% dry. I've used those large plastic bins with snap on covers but you can get a small amount of water in them if it's really pouring. Those plastic bins covered with a tarp does really well also, I've done that on camping trips before and all our clothes, sleeping bags and food stayed 100% dry.

    X2 on the plastic bins. I only always have a few plastic bins that need to stay 100% dry and once those 2 passengers in the rear get out, thats where the bins stay if its raining outside.

    Not "the best" but they are pretty good. They aren't submergable grade, but for the bed of a truck they are alright
