I have considered doing this, but have discounted it for now.
The main reason is that assuming that the fridge is on one side of the rear compartment, the straps on one side of the fridge would go straight down to the tiedowns beside the fridge, but the straps on the other side would go right across the rear compartment, making it hard to load other items in the rear compartment.

That's a great idea and I will give that one a go.

Thanks for that

Aaron

I made up a floor out of ply, took the tie-down points out and bolted the floor to these. I'll let the photos do the talking. Haven't had an issue with the whole time it's been in the back. I'd say that would be about two years now.

Cheers

That looks great man! What type and thickness of ply did you use?

Hi Shutterbug,
Can you tell me the brand of the fridge slide. I don't recall seeing any before with the table extending out like that.

When the fridge is pulled out, how do you stop the rest of the crap in the back from falling behind it?

I did something similar;I removed the carpet and tie downs.

I made a template of the rear floor using thick cardboard and marked the tie down bolt holes and winder carefully.

I used 17mm form ply as old Jack suggested and taped the template directly onto the ply and cut with a jigsaw and power saw.

I also added extra carpet pieces for sound deadening in the low spots in the existing foam.

I used 40mm high tensile m6 bolts countersunk into ply with large mudguard washers to hold it all down.

Flaps in carpet cover all 4 bolts and another flap goes over spare wheel winder.

Fridge slide is held in with 8 bolts and t-nuts so I can remove if required. Hardest part was cutting, folding, gluing the carpet underside. I used marine carpet from Bunnings.

I posted photos in the thread on drawer systems http://www2.pajeroclub.com.au/forum/...t=12401&page=4

Hi Motorace,

From memory I used 18mm marine ply for the base. I went that thick as I didn't know how much flex there would be when the fridge was pulled right out. For the slide part I think the thickness is 15mm and it's also marine ply. The whole lot was then covered with marine carpet. The Waeco 60lt fridge weighs a fair bit when loaded up but there is very little movement when fully extended.

Cheers,
Marc

Hi Aaron,

The fridge slide is a DIY job. I looked at some of the commercial ones available but nothing was suited for what I was looking for. I didn't want to be carrying a table and setting that up each time we stopped so I made the table part of the slide. The fridge slides are locking 125kg ones from memory and the table slides are 25kg capacity.

What I have since added is a small platform behind the slide with a couple of tie downs where I place my battery for the fridge. As the cargo barrier slops backwards quite dramatically there is actually not much clearance between the top of the fridge and the cargo barrier when the fridge is full in. The battery fits in nicely but there is really no more room to fit anything else in. I haven't had any trouble with anything falling behind the fridge when pulled out as its mainly large bags that are put in the back. I'm the one who packs all the gear in so I pack so that nothing is falling down when the fridge is pulled out. This is not to say that the bags don't shift and end up leaning against the fridge. Generally a bit of a shove and the bags move away from the fridge. I've been contemplating making a steel wire cage to go around the fridge so that no bags or anything rests against the fridge but this is still in the thought stage at the moment.

Cheers,
Marc

Hi rc211e,

Very much alike in how we've both done them. I haven't countersunk my bolts but left them exposed. They haven't caused any problems to date. I have also been thinking about making up a removable drawer that would go on the other side but this is still a thought at the moment.

Cheers,
Marc
