    Default Mounting of fridge slide in rear of Prado 150 - question?

    I want to mount a fridge slide for a 90 Lt fridge in the rear of my Prado.

    Referring to attached images, will it work if I secure the fridge slide on the existing OEM securing points in the rear load bay?

    Will the securing points hold the whole contraption down and in place when slide is drawn out with loaded fridge??

    I do not want to remove the far-rear seats hence this idea?

    I will be using the far most forward securing points and the ones far back (2 x cross bars). Just behind the forward points are another set of securing points - should I use these as well (3rd cross bar) to spread the 'pulling force' on the far most forward securing points??

    Any other proposals (without removing the far-rear seats or drilling in vehicle etc...)?

    Thanks for your contribution.

    In the light of no replies, I am just curious on how other Prado 150 owners mount their fridge slides or even packing systems in their vehicles??

    Surely there are ways of doing this which you could share please?

    ELU, I do not trust an aluminium extrusion to hold a frigde and contents (40 - 50 kg ?) in the event of some unforeseen catastrophy.

    I removed the 3rd row of seats and installed a false floor, as did many others. There are several threads discussing this option, if you are interested.

    I had the same problem but with a new shape Fortuner.....I wouldn't rely on those factory floor secure points. In an accident that fridge would surely kill some one if it came loose.

    I ended up using the floor seat brackets for the 3rd row of seats.
