Custom Designed Foam Inserts

#1

Post by Mad Manny »

Found this company in Pretoria, thought it may be of interest.

I don't know them, haven't used them & have no idea of pricing.
But the stuff looks good.

Not for 'Chuck it in Chas' though...

Although they look nice and neat (unlike Chas’s hairstyle) I don’t think it’s a very good use of space for an overlanding rig where space is a premium.

I would rather chuck the cutlery into a drawer or box and the cups/plates etc should be stacked and strapped down.

Not for me.

Very nice looking and neat Manny but I am with Kurt regarding space.
You will never find me without Stroh or a 4x4 :D

... you quite right ... about the space utilization.

All my cutlery travels in a sleeved canvas roll
like a spanner bag, smaller than a tissue box.
'Crockery' plates and cups etc in my canvas ' Tea Bag'
with 'Thermos' flask and en route drinks & snacks etc
By my estimates a GullWing window with shelving etc
must cost about R10000 a window ! So perhaps as much as 20000 FrontRunner Rand per vehicle .
The stuff this image-seeker displays wouldnt even
fill 1/3 an ammo box !
He'd still need a fully stocked complement
of 4 to 6 ammo boxes elsewhere ...

I have used their services for a client vehicle.

The lady's name is Jenene Kriek and was very helpful and provided a superb product.

Although not exactly a space saver, it has its place especially as an easy access, organising system.

I can see that it can be very useful, more on the camping side than over landing, being organised at camp makes the camp more enjoyable, especially for SWAMBO.

It looks very neat and organized.

But I would never consider buying it until such time as my two pension-eaters grow up and leave the house.

For two persons, those foam inserts work well.

... if one had 3 drawers in that window,
each with such foam inserts ... then,
it would be much better space utilization
and probly more practical imo.
Could even have perspex fronts to the drawers
and subtle LED lighting over each drawer ...
