Rear drawer build

Rear drawer build
My current drawer system has taken 3 makeovers to get to this stage
I first had a cut down 2 drawer metal filing cabinet but with only a 600mm depth I incorporated a box at the seat end to hold stuff, but was clumsy and weak
I next made a high box to hold my 3way fridge and two drawers on the driver side, handmade the slides with rhs and roller skate bearings, but the cape trick loosened it up and warped some parts and the fridge was on the wrong side as I couldn't have side access to the drawers when the fridge was out
now i have made this version with slotted angle and ply
I have 105% drawers slides to move the drawers efficiently
on the right is the engel fridge with a ten litre water bottle and double action pump it also has a fold down table to hold stuff you get out of the fridge to get to what you really want down at the bottom (you know it always happens)
on the left is my version of a drifta kitchen
this kitchen lifts in and out and can be replaced with a ply box when not needed
it will be fitted with removable legs so you can set it up separately for long camps
as you can see it has a flip over lid that doubles as a table for cooking or cleaning and when closed holds in the drawers
from drifting open
made of ply and covered with laminex for easy wipe and clean ( yeh I am a messy cook)
I have drawers that house my cultery, washing up stuff and plates and a portable cooker they are sized to clear the back of the car
I have a little space in the back for odds and sods (salt pepper, paper towels even sauce etc.
here it is set up with the stabilising leg that stores away in the top drawer which  holds anything I wish
down side is that you cannot use the top of the kitchen for a organising if you want to pull out the top drawer to access stuff
Sooooooo.  I have added (no picture) a set of removable filing cabinet drawers to the top of the drawer unit to house all my food and other stuff I just gotta have out camping
the dimensions are about right for me now, but  I would rebuild it in ply this time as a box unit that could be removed as this one cant be without demolition of the unit
As always it is a project in development as ideas come and go or tested to work or not
But mostly I like it
What do you think?
