LOADED

PACK IT, LOAD IT, STOW IT, STORE IT.

These are the best storage solutions in the game.

By the time you’ve got the fourby loaded with tents, swags, recovery kits, spare parts, tools and the kitchen sink, it can quickly start to feel like a hopeless game of Tetris.

The fact of the matter is there’s barely enough cargo room built into even the biggest 4WDs for long range touring, and if you’re travelling with a big family the matter is only compounded.

A quality set of storage drawers is the first step to one-upping your packing game. While they may not buy extra space, the built-in efficiency and tidiness is worth volumes.

The next step is to take advantage of rooftop storage with a sturdy tray or set of racks. Weigh up what you’re likely to store up top and look into mountable fittings for additional efficiency and peace of mind.

The range of nifty storage gadgets like fridge slides and fold out kitchens on the market these days is truly remarkable. We dove headfirst into the trove of aftermarket storage accessories while researching this story, and were duly impressed.

        There’s really no such thing as the perfect touring setup. Every family is different, every kind of touring is different.

        That’s why I love the approach that Kelvin at Metalink takes to building his canopies, and it’s why I work with him on every new build.

        Every canopy that comes out of this place is custom built. Whether it’s a fold-out camper design or more of a storage solution, Kelvin sits down and works out what you need, what you want, and then designs something from scratch that answers those requirements without sacrificing quality, reliability or weight.

        For my new canopy on Shadow, I trusted Kelvin a lot more, and we worked out a whole new system that makes travelling and working in the bush that much easier and worry-free.
