Finally finished my bed storage system! Simple mounting rails mounted to the bed with rivnuts. Part of the delay was breaking my cheapo rivnut tool last weekend - the $75 tool works MUCH better than the $20 tool. :D

It snowed again earlier this week, but GFC install will happen soon.

Next I need to secure the fridge aux battery.

Then it is pretty much ready for Canyonlands!

Replaced mounting straps with these cool mini ratchet straps - much more secure. Reorganized the bed a bit to have a secure spot for the kermit chairs. Next steps are dust sealing and still need to mount the auxillary battery.

Thanks. I wanted something light and easily removable. It is just akro mills bins plus s-tracks and mini ratchet straps. Just FYI, bin prices fluctuate a lot. S-tracks are mounted with rivnuts. Avoid the $20 rivnut tools - I snapped one after mounting only 8 nuts.
