    My homemade Visboks: (On homemade camping table)

    Used an ammo box to fit anywhere thats made for an ammobox.
    4 Compartments:

    Main: 6x plastic containers for hooks, sinkers etc and place for load of other stuff: 4x reels, folding rod, hat, glasses, small bag bait.
    2 independant drawers: Bait, gut, few tools,
    rear compartment: 7.4ah battery for Led light and sig lighter plug for power out. Higher bottles of bait.


    Lid is hinged, so can't be blown away and opens close to 180deg so serves as table for light items.


    Battery is charged (2nd time today in 3 years and still shows full) via sig lighter plug

    My DIY spice rack that I built & fitted to the inside of the side door of the trailer.

    In the 2nd pic you will notice that I moved my fridge back in the sliding tray to ensure there is sufficient space in front for the spice rack when the door is closed.
