Vehicle Roller Drawer Storage Systems

Vehicle Storage Drawers


What is the best vehicle roller drawer storage system?

So, now you have all your gear safely stored in the back of your vehicle behind the cargo barrier and piled to the roof but you donít want to have to pull it all out to be able to get to recovery gear, air compressor or some other item buried under all that stuff.  A good roller drawer storage system will help overcome this and provide lockable drawers for those expensive items.

Your choice of roller drawer storage system for the rear of your station wagon, panel van or 4WD/SUV will come down to your vehicle make and model, gross vehicle mass (GVM), your individual needs and your budget.  The materials used can vary from plywood to galvanised steel to aluminium and the drawers themselves can be side by side or stacked on top of one another.

        quality roller bearings for the sliding drawers

        covered in marine grade or industrial strength carpet

        good handle with key lock for security of your expensive gear

        safety feature to prevent fingers or hands getting caught

        safety bolts to prevent drawer sliding out completely

If you plan to have a 12V portable refrigerator such as a Waeco, Engel or National Luna decide what size you need and how high the drawer system is.  You want to be able to reach into the refrigerator without having to get up onto the tail gate.  Perhaps look into the Platinum range of drop fridge slides which can be mounted on top of your storage drawer.
