28 Ways to Use Your Expedition134 Camping Storage Box

The Expedition134 is a truly versatile camping storage box. Its innovative design lends it a number of uses whether you need storage for camping, boating, 4WDing or just around the house.

Let’s take a look at some of the different ways you can use this top-selling camping storage box.

1. Clothes Storage

Have you been looking for quality camping clothes storage? The Expedition134 has 55 litres of storage space and a flat interior for easily stacking and storing clothes. You also won’t have to worry about clothes getting wet or smelly thanks to the camping box’s weatherproof design.

2. Food Storage

Keeping your food safe and dry can sometimes be difficult when camping. Fortunately, camping food storage has a new hero in the Expedition134. We’ve already mentioned its weatherproofing, but did you know about its secure locks? You have three tough locks on the storage box itself, which are great for scavengers, but can also add a padlock for any human pests you might encounter.

3. First Aid Supplies

When storing your first aid supplies, you want a box that’s tough and easy to access. This camping storage box has dedicated tie-down points. These allow you to access its contents even when it’s strapped to your car. Quick and easy in the case of emergency. The various box colours, such as Safety Orange, also make it very easy to identify your first aid box in a hurry.

4. As a Step or a Stool

What camper hasn’t tried to use their box as a step or a stool at least once? With many storage boxes, this can often lead to broken lids or worse. We’re a couple of avid Australian campers, so you know we’ve experienced this more than once.

That’s why we used a unique injection moulding process to create a lightweight, but ultra-tough camping storage box. It has a lid load rating of 120 kilograms, so use it as a step or a stool as much as you want.
