Pick of the month September: Caddy Maxi DIY camping box

This website is supported by our visitors. I sometimes earn affiliate commissions when you click through the links to affiliate partners and products, that I have selected manually and would or have bought myself – at no cost to you.

I’ve dug out another gem for Caddy owners (the first one being this) – a very detailed instructable on how to make your own DIY modular camping box – measured to fit Caddy Maxi (our #1 car for camping).

The author “thomasfannes” took a lot of time to draw a 3D model of the camping box in SketchUp – which he generously shared in the instructable. It’s a .skp file – you need SketchUp to open it. But even without the file, there’s plenty of images and details to follow to build your own camping box.

To give you a taster, here are a few images of what you can expect (these don’t cover all the steps, for that, see the full instructable – link at the bottom).

The camping box includes

  • plenty of storage space
  • drawers for water , gas cooker and more
  • a fold up table to eat comfortably inside
  • huge space for sleeping
  • plenty of headroom left

These might come in handy...

...and you'll help keep this website going too - thanks! 🙂

pressure solar camping shower 10 litres 600x600 1 - Pick of the month September: Caddy Maxi DIY camping box

Pressure solar camping shower (pumped) – 10l

This camping shower is easy to transfer and doesn’t need to hang in the air – it has a built-in pump that lets you pressurise the chamber and shower or use it in the sink anywhere. It’s black, so the longer you leave it in the sun, the warmer the water will be (or just leave it in a hot closed car in the summer).

  • Lightweight: 870 g including the bag
  • 10 litre capacity | On/off button on the handle to prevent waste
