    I decided to go this route because on our last trip I found there was too much stuff inside the van whilst travelling. I did keep the middle seats in because there was a need to use them whilst away, but having the fridge, suitcase, pack away kitchen and a huge awning inside meant the poor old dog had nowhere to move.
    Iíd used a soft Fiamma cargo bag on our T25 but it was too small for the awning, and it leaked. Then I saw the Thule frame and as theyíre £200+ new with bike fittings I thought £45 was too good to pass up. Apparently though theyíre rated at 50kg capacity theyíll take a man standing on it! This black box is heavy but not much more than an Ultra box, and again it seemed a steal at £45, it even has heavy duty castors in it but theyíre on the side, Iíll move them to the base, so the whole think can be wheeled around in one piece, and Iíll have mouse proof storage for my camping gear - the awning, kitchen, chairs, table and thermal wraps. Itís probably fine as is but Iíll be happier adding ratchet straps to the rear of the roof for bracing and probably easier to fit the box single handed.
    Iíll also wrap it to match the van

    Iíve been thinking that I need something similar on the back to hold all the extra bits. Looking forward to seeing the end result.

    Cracking solution - Is it me? ....but it's got a T2 look about the design.
