    Default Saddle box for trailer

    I am looking for a saddle box to mount on my trailer. I got some quotes from Challenger and it is more than R600-00. I can not believe that a folded piece of metal with hinged lid can cost that much.

    Are there alternatives? It needs to be close water tight. I want to use it for tools.

    Does anyone know of a metal shop who will make one?

    Are you talking about the nose cone?

    At R600 I will take the Challenger one.
    Venter is over R1000 and I was offered a second hand challenger (i think) one with slight damage for R600.
    Makro also sell a plastic one which is over R600 but I wouldnt put that onto my trailer.


    Let me know if you come right. I am also looking for one. That is if you are talking about the nose cone...

    Thanks,

    No, Bruce. It is the utility box on the mud guard. Just a square box with hinged lid and lock.

    Jeez then that is crazy....

    Just an idea, at the Army surplus store in PTA a few months back I saw some miniture trommels more or less the same size as the box you need. They were about R100 or R200 odd.
