YOUR CAMPING STORAGE PROBLEMS SOLVED
FRUSTRATED BY HEAVY CUMBERSOME CAMPING STORAGE BOXES?
If you have used the big heavy types of boxes, then you might already know they are a great strong product but that they have some disadvantages too. One of them is their baulk and weight. These types of storage cases are what is called a roto-moulded product. And for those of us becoming more aware of the amount of weight we carry in our vehicles, understand that it all counts towards our overall vehicle and trailer weight calculations. And beyond that they can be a pain to lift up into ute trays and onto roof racks.To solve this, we designed the Expedition Box. And, we opted to use the Injection Moulding process, which would allow us to build in the features we wanted. Yes, injection moulds are much higher tech and thus far more expensive with all the precision moving parts and hydraulics, but we believe the end product is well worth it. Importantly injection moulding allowed us to be precisely in creating a robust tough box without the unnecessary weight.
PURCHASED CHEAP INFERIOR AND WEAK 4WD STORAGE BOXES IN THE PAST?
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”
We had tried many boxes in the past and were often frustrated by the ability of them to be belted around in the back of the truck while on a remote trip. There is nothing worse than being remote or away camping and gear has been damaged, or the weather and dust has made it onto your clothes. It’s frustrating and painful to find a fix when away. It’s the last thing you want to worried about.
Our precision injected moulded expedition boxes are made to last and last trip after trip. We back our product with a 100% money back guarantee – because if you are unhappy so are we! We also provide a 2 year warranty on our expedition boxes for added piece of mind!
HAVE YOU HAD DUST AND WEATHER LEAK INTO YOUR STORAGE BOX?
Dust and driving rain have a tendency to find their way into gear no matter how well it is packed, often spoiling or dirtying clothes and delicate electronics.
The Expedition134 boxes have been fitted with one of our key features – a custom weather seal and a matching high ridge to keep out driving rain and prevent dust leaking in. Relax in confidence that your gear will be well protected in an Expedition134 storage box.
SICK OF STORAGE BOXES WITH LARGE RIBS ON FLOOR AND WALLS MAKING PACKING A PAIN?
Heavy rotomoulded boxes are designed with multiple ridges and channels both across the floor and sides of the box to provide their strength. Unfortunately, this trait also makes packing them a real pain compared to a nice flat smooth floor. Food tins, jars, and bottles all will fall over no matter how tightly you pack them, often leaving you with a mess to clean up later.
The Expedition134 box was engineered and designed to have nice smooth flat floors and rounded corners to address this problem. This makes stacking and packing a super simple affair and helps keep your gear all nicely ordered.
BEEN FRUSTRATED BY HAVING TO UNDO EVERYTHING TO ACCESS YOUR 4X4 STORAGE BOX CONTENTS?
Traveling this great country of ours for any length of time nearly always means having to store some of your valuables on the roof rack of the vehicle. And with normal boxes, that always ends up with ropes or straps over the top of everything and then when you need that one item you have to undo it all.
Well, forget all of that hassle and use a box with dedicated tie-down points on the corners that allow easy opening of the box while it is still secured on the roof! No more being covered in dust and grime from pulling ropes and straps off and then having to re-tie them again. It doesn’t get any better than that.
DEALT WITH WEAK RUSTING METAL COMPONENTS ON STORAGE BOXES IN THE PAST?
It’s beyond annoying when on a long trip to a destination you hear continual tinny rattles that metal makes from those corrugations!
If you have used those big heavy roto-moulded boxes in the past you will know most of them have metal components. And if you have used them in the professional or commercial marine environment, then you’d also know that the hinges and latches rust out pretty quickly too, which is why they aren’t found much in that industry.
We solved this problem through our superior technical precision of injection moulding. This allowed us to remove all metal from our expedition products. If your using them at sea or at the beach then no need to worry about metal rusting. Importantly our boxes won’t create pain in the arse rattles in your vehicle!
HAD WASTED SPACE WHEN YOUR STORAGE BOX IS NOT IN USE?
A frustration of some roto-moulded storage boxes is the amount of room they take up when not in use. Roto-moulding is what allows these types of boxes to have the vertical or square walls and corners that we at Open Sky Touring used to think were necessary for ease of packing. A problem created with the vertical or square walls and corners is that these storage boxes can-not be nested when empty thus taking up valuable space in the shed or garage.
The expedition box design allows the lid to be removed and the box body to be nested inside another box body saving over 50% of the space.
USED CAMPING BOXES WHICH WERE NOT LOCKABLE?
Leaving your gear on the roof rack or in the back of a ute is great, but when you walk into the pub for a coldie after a long day, it would be good to know the gear inside your storage box is safe.
The Expedition Box allows for each latch to be locked. Importantly we have designed the padlock position to be under the outer rim which means the padlock won’t rub on other gear inside your vehicle or rattle on other metal.
HAD BIG POOLS OF WATER ON STORAGE BOX LIDS WHEN OUT IN THE WEATHER?
Rain at the camp is not ideal but we all know it happens. It’s more of a frustration when the lid of your box fills with water. Usually meaning you get wet when removing the lid or your contents inside do.
We designed the lids so the water runs off and that puddle of water you forgot about from the overnight rain won’t end up on your lap in the morning.
FOUND CAMPING STORAGE DIFFICULT TO CLEAN DUE TO BIG INTERNAL LIPS AND RIBS?
Nothing worse than a frustrating session cleaning up at the end of a long camping trip right? When you’ve been smashed all over the Cape, or just wanting to relax after finishing a long drive, you just don’t want to fight to get rid of all the dust and mud throughout your gear. One of the biggest problems with the heavy rotomoulded boxes is that annoying inside lip that keeps the dirt and muck in, no matter how much you try to hose it out.
Well, that pain is a thing of the past with the Expedition134 boxes due to the clever design incorporating that clean smooth flat floor and sidewalls with no annoying overhanging lip to trap the dirt and mud. Simply give them a hose out, wipe them down and you’re done with the cleanup.
Dealing with Expedition134 is easy and the guys are extremely helpful. Dispatch and delivery were fast. These boxes are STRONG, have the best seals on the market and are lightweight for their size. Seriously, you just can’t buy better!
I love the two boxes I bought as they are completely dust and rain proof, but more importantly, bug proof. No more do I worry about finding bush cockroaches finding their way into my Expedition pantry box.
Would have liked to have bought the straps to fit boxes to my roof rack but the price being asked is outrageous. Instead, I'm buying boxes from a competitor now due to their more affordable tie-down system for roof racks.
I won't sell my pricey Expedition boxes, I'll use them in the boat I plan on getting... I just won't be buying anymore now that there's viable competition in Caos offering a better range of options.
Wasn't meant to be a backhanded compliment... but the strap prices annoyed me.
Choosing to buy my 12th Expedition134 box was never in doubt in my thoughts! I now own 10 of these, I’ve bought and given away 3 Turquoise boxes as gifts and I’m extremely lucky enough to have received one as a gift 🎁
Tough no matter what I put them through, love how they strap down so I can still open the lid and colour coding helps me know what’s in each one!
All my designing and planning centres around these boxes, they are essential to my truck and trailer set ups 👏
Will there be more 🤔 Highly likely 🙌
Previous I've had cheaper storage boxes that never stood the test of time. I initially thought the box was a bit pricey but when it arrived I could see this is a storage box that I'll have for a very long time. You can sit on it, stand on it, and it's water & dust prove; solid latches as well. Definitely buying another one.
Great size for me to lift in and out of my Ute. They stack so neatly and don’t move around. Well worth what I spent and can see I will be using them for a very long time
Great seal and very sturdy. Useful as a step to reach higher areas
lightweight but sturdy, I am so impressed with quality, delivery was incredible and I am so excited to use.
I purchased a Camping storage box recently and it arrived with minor damage in transit. I only noticed the damage a few days later and emailed the sales team on a Saturday. I was contacted almost immediately by “Macka” who wanted to understand and solve the problem immediately. By Wednesday this week Macka had a replacement sent out to me, and included a little gift. I love that these boxes are aussie made, fit on roof racks. Why i love even more is how much this company cares. The way Macka treated me - I’m an Expedition 134 customer for life now.
Super quick dispatch and delivery 📦
Amazing customer experience 😊
There is always an element of not being sure exactly what you will receive when making an online order without first having physically seen / touched the item being purchased. In this case I watched the promo videos and read online reviews. All seemed very positive about the Expedition 134 Storage Boxes. So I went ahead and ordered two.
On opening the package I was very impressed with the construction quality, size and colour of the boxes ordered. I would have to say they exceeded my expectations from what I had seen online. They are very very solid, definitely water and dust proof and will surely last many many years. I use Front Runner Wolf boxes regularly and thought these were pretty good. The Expedition 134 boxes however are next level. I'm about to order another two, they are that good. Well done to Expedition 134 for producing an excellent Australian made product.
Very sturdy and great size. Perfect for camp kitchen box. Would be great if there was an optional caddy tray to sit in the box for smaller items.
Although I haven't taken these out into the bush yet, I'm very happy with their solid construction and the amount of room inside each box
We started with 2 and now have 5 of these boxes. They are exactly as described. Waterproof, dust proof and tough. Plus they look great.
Their customer service is great too and delivery is very quick.
I recommend them to everyone.
Excellent quality product! Functional and durable. Small modification to the clips would allow ease of use to all customers.
Versatile and yet so durable and light-weight! Love the funky colors!
My Expedition 134 box lives in my ute!
