Anybody have these toolboxes?

I'm fascinated by the utility of this product but try as might, I just cannot see it being all that useful in a camper's tow vehicle - unless one is also a contractor. So what say you all? Can you see it being useful in a camping situation? Does anyone own & use one?

In my case, almost everything I carry in the truck would have to sit on top of the deck: mobility scooter, rv-co stairs, generator, gas cans. Tools & dog get carried inside the cab.

Not for tools, but I can see them being useful for storage. If they fit in a trailer or RV storage compartment, they might be great there, even double or triple stacked. I don't want to know the price though!

OK, I looked. $1,300 for a double unit that fits in the back of a Sprinter van. I'll pass on that.

There is a guy in my neighborhood that has one. He also has one of those rooftop tents.

Looks nice and probably useful for him because it looks like he stores food, clothing, and all that in there.

If I had a bunch of small things to transport and not much place to store it I'd look at them.

I only noticed it one day because his tailgate was open and one of the drawers was out (he was in the process of loading it).

I had a Tahoe with a "Truck Vault" storage unit at work before I retired. Really nice as it gave locking storage for computers and other stuff you just don't want to leave in plain sight all the time. This is sort of the same concept but for a truck bed. I would love to have one under my Leer cap, but it's a little pricey. Nice unit though.

Just wondering what that would do to an already payload-challenged tow vehicle?

When I drove a school bus the maintenance department had a similar all metal version in their truck. It held a lot and very easy to get to everything and keep it locked and out of the whether. I can't think of a benefit for camping unless you are running a business and need supplies

ive seen many a contractor with a home made version in their van or truck. I think the main idea is to still be able to haul a 4 x8 sheet of plywood or drywall with all your stuff in your truck or van.
