Any seasoned camper or 4WDing enthusiast will testify that storage isn’t just a concept, it’s an art. While loading up the car can often seem like the most important task, adopting good storage solutions in between trips is also essential.
Whether you’ve got a spacious garage, an indoor storage locker or a garden shed, space is always a factor. This means that clever storage ideas go a long way when it comes to efficient camping storage at home.
Stuck inside during the Coronavirus lockdown? Now is a good time to overhaul your 4WDing camping storage at home. Here are some self-storage tips and tricks guaranteed to get your garage or shed tidy and functioning like a dream.
1. Embrace stacking
Stacking is one of the easiest ways to save space when storing camping gear. Open Sky Touring leverages the concept of stacking with our best-selling Expedition 134 box. It features a clever interlocking design on the base and lid, allowing for easier stacking.
Planning to throw your boxes straight into the 4WD? This clever design also eliminates the risk of boxes slipping and sliding around in your boot, even on the roughest outback trails. The lids can also handle loads of up to 120 kilograms. Stacking also extends beyond your camping storage boxes. Stacking cups, bowls, pots and pans saves a lot of space inside the actual boxes.
2. Install metal shelving
Ramp up your storage room with DIY metal shelving that’s tough enough to house all your camping storage boxes, as well as any other loose gear. You can purchase these from various hardware and furniture stores.
3. Invest in heavy-duty camping storage boxes
Buying resilient and durable heavy-duty storage boxes can save you a lot of time and money. One of the key benefits of our Expedition 134 range is the tight seal and clever ridge design that protects your camping and 4WDing gear from moisture, dust, insects and rodents. So, even if your storage area isn’t 100-percent clean and dry, you’ll enjoy total peace of mind that your gear is well protected.

4. Label and colour coordinate boxes
Labelling boxes can be a great way to minimise stress and confusion when storing camping gear at home and in your vehicle. Save yourself the headaches by colour coordinating your boxes according to category.
For example, store your food in an orange box, fishing gear in a green box and your recovery kit in a grey box. Open Sky Touring makes this easy by selling our Expedition 134 storage boxes in a variety of body and lid colours, so you can mix and match for more options. If you need a lot of storage, you can save money by purchasing a triple pack, which includes three storage boxes of varying colours.
5. Safeguard your gear
Storing gear is one thing, but safeguarding it against theft is another matter. Designed to get the better of crims, Expedition 134 storage boxes feature lockable latches built into the external lip.
Ready to load up the car or unpack after another epic trip? Expedition 134 boxes are designed for easy lifting, which makes the transition from car to garage and vice versa so much easier.
6. Look for lightweight
The lighter the better is a good rule of thumb when it comes to storage solutions. Expedition 134 storage boxes are manufactured using unique injection moulding technology that minimises weight without compromising on durability. This lightweight design makes it easier moving the boxes around in your shed or garage whenever you get that itch to completely overhaul your camping storage at home.
