Default 3rd Seat Well Access - Fridge Slide

Gidday

I have made split access boards to replace the original 3rd seat one piece cover.
I used 9mm marine ply covered with carpet.

The idea was that I could place heavy items on the left hand side which is safely held in place because the fridge is tied down over the left side.
This leaves access available on the right hand side with plenty of space available to utilise.

I would now like to have a fridge slide on the left side but need your help on how to securely mount it to the floor? Has anyone already done this? Appreciate any assistance or advice.

Many thanks

G'day Keith,

I think you are on the right track. I did a similar thing years ago and it has worked really well, very light weight, holds fridge in place and has shelves for plastic crates etc, allows access to storage under the split covers and it doesn't need an expensive fridge slide. see:

Default 3rd Seat Well Access - Fridge Slide

Nice job I've thought of doing this my self a few times. I find with the fridge on the left side you don,t really need a slide as access is good. But it is helpful to fix the fridge in place to stop it moving. I use the child seat anchor bolt on LHS and the tie down clip at the rear LHS.

Thanks Ray, looks great.


Hey Dan, that is what I currently do but as I have 2 fridges one with a side open lid and one with a rear hinge thought they might be easier to get to with a fridge slide.

I did that and added tie down loops in the seat well, bolted through the back wall of the tub and with a hole for the strap to go through. Canít see it when the factory lid is on. front straps were around the cargo barrier anchors The problem I had was the ply sagging across the gap. I tried reinforcing the ply with ali angle and then a post onto the floor of the tub. Worked ok but not brilliant.

Iíve now changed fridges and needed to have a slide so got a Kings one but it was too wide. I made a new tray from alu angle and a ply base to just fit the fridge. I made a single piece ply false floor which bolts into the child seat anchors and the rearmost tie down points. With a hatch on the RHS for access. I used chair leg anchors from underneath the ply to bolt the slide down. Covered in carpet which I stapled rather than glued.
