Hi all,


Wondering if anyone can recommend a flat storage bin that fits under a rear bench seat in a van.

9" high max in my case.


I'm looking for something that is relatively heavy duty as I would like the bin to be large (approx. 23x30") and stick out into my trunk space where it would get banged up when I pile stuff on top of it.


So far I've only come across flimsy 'under-bed' storage bins in this, somewhat, odd dimension.

I'm looking to store camping gear, nothing fragile or ultra high value.


I drive a 93' Hiace Cruising Cabin camper van.


Many thanks.

Go into a tackle shop and look at some of the Plano plastic boxes.  They might not be as long as you’re looking for, but you could place them end to end.

I found a Sterilite box that fit in the fishbox area of my boat. Very tough and clean up easy. Try this one. It may  be larger than you want but many others are on the site. Target, Home Depot and Lowes, etc. carry various models.

EZY Storage IP67 boxes. A variety of sizes and most importantly, water/dust proof. Unfortunately, they can be tough to find right now.

Modular toolboxes by Bosch, Dewalt, Milwaukie, etc. are in various sizes. Maybe not your exact size. Sturdy, but spendy.
