Photos of the platform. Bottom is painted to blend in. Top will have the carpet.
Thanks I found it called L-track? I just kept clicking the wrong tie down section on their homepageEverything was on this website:
Ratchet Straps, Tie Down Straps, E Track Tie Downs, Cargo Straps - U.S. Cargo Control
Yes that is a key feature I wanted, access to that underfloor area. It's a very useful area if you can actually get to it. Actually the platform sits a bit above floor level, so there is a bit more vertical room in the compartment now. You don't have to make sure everything is perfectly below level, that slide will squish flexible stuff down a bit. It either won't fit or the slide will make it fit, the slide is not going to float up if something is under it.Somehow missed this before, but as Arte Johnson used to say; "Veeery Interesting! I especially like how the platform covers the underfloor compartment, leaving it accessible while doing away with that stupid lid.
I probably missed it in reading, but I assume those slides lock back into the closed position? Look forward to seeing this in person some day.
Which rack are you referring to? The shelf that slides out, or the cargo rack above it? I like your configuration. You also can still leave stuff in the cubby hole.Made a bit of progress yesterday. I'm not quite as happy with the rack mounting as I hoped, it's sturdy but I'm worried about vibration.
I haven't attached the rack to the legs yet.
Here are some pics of a possible loaded configuration for camping trips. Straps would be added to hold everything in place.
The elevated cargo rack. I have it held with 4 bolts. I think what I see as flimsiness is the fact I don't have the top welded in which should add lateral stability, and I didn't have all 4 mounting bolts secured. I used angle iron top and bottom to try and gain some strength without having to weld in gussets.Which rack are you referring to? The shelf that slides out, or the cargo rack above it?
