Kitchen Boxes; What do you Got?

Fell down another internet rabbit hole instead of being productive.








I dont wanna build my own, and I dont want to have all my gear plastic tote anymore. Want a bit of organization.

Nothing so fancy. I have a Sterlite tote with my gear in it and carry a Lifetime folding table.

Mildly Demented...

I paid for a Trail Kitchens King Charles, but I ain't seen it yet...guess I'll have to update later.

Last year or so, and for the time being, I use MTM ammo cases, one larger one for general utensils and cooking stuff, the other for food, and the smaller green one has random larger items like 1lb propane tanks:



I also see a lot of potential in this I seen on ExPo:

I use "Wolfpack" South African ammo boxes from Front Runner and soft bags from Blue Ridge Overland Gear. Here is a shot from 2017 with my rig fully loaded and ready to depart for goneMOAB:

That sure is sexy Mr Bills.

I use plano 1719 cases. They fit easily under the Garvin rack, even with the Partner stove and Blue ridge overland bag on top of them, its actually like a glove. I use the Partner stand and block off plate (prep area), the plate easily fits under the stove in the BROG bag, the stand I tie into the rear of the garvin rack, with the action packer totes, I found it easily uses the wasted space and does so efficiently.

In this photo you can see the 22" partner on the plano case. For $20 its a hard setup to beat with this plano cases. You can see the patner stand wrapped against the garvin markings in the green canvas bag.

I've made quite a few chuck boxes.

First picture is out of Sugar Pine.
Second set is of 1/2" Baltic Birch.

I've recently completed several out of 12mm/9mm Baltic Birch of similar design.
I'll post pictures later today.

Here are two photos of a chuckbox made by my father in 1965 when I was 15. It was designed to fit between the fender wells of our '54 Willys CJ-3B. It is still in use and currently resides in my '46 Bantam T3-C trailer:

Let me know how you like the King Charles, it looks like a really great option. I actually saw that thread on ExPo, and it spurred my interest... trying to optimize my cooking/camping/packing setup.


@XKNUT those are really nice. How much do they weigh? Do you take them with you in your X?

@Mr. Bills that's showroom quality! Does it go camping with you?


@Un4seen4 so those as well! They fetch $200+ on ebay! Really nice and compact unit though.

Thanks for sharing everyone, keep 'em coming!
