Thule Evolution 1800 Cargo Box

Buried in another thread, I posted some details of my Thule Evolution 1800 Cargo Box ...

It's a new addition to our tow vehicle ... no, not because I ran out of room in the Suburban. Pam never has like putting wet, dirty, possibly stinky stuff into the car with us.

This gives us a place to put such stuff.

Here's how it looks on the Suburban. Really aerodynamic. The box did NOT affect the mileage at all on our recent 2700 mile (4345 Km), 7 week trip.

It's actually not as small as it looks. The dimensions of the Thule Evolution 1800 box are 91.3"(L) x 31"(W) x 16.2"(H).

In the box, starting at the back, and working my way forward are:

A 15 gallon wheeled Blue Tote tank
Two (2) 5 gallon Water tanks
150 feet of coiled White Fresh Water hose
50 feet of green grey water hose.

Wedged along both sides of the above are:

1 Large roll of indoor/outdoor carpet
4 folding bag chairs
1 folding wooden slat table
1 folding canvas table with two drink holders

Also carry a shoe scraper up there.

In other words, anything that is wet, dirty or possibly stinky or has to occasionally be packed up wet (when departing in a rain storm).

Thule makes 4 sizes of the Evolution cargo box.

Before I purchased one, I laid everything out on the garage floor, then measured to see what size I wanted.

Pete J asked for a drawing of my layout. I scanned a crude drawing into my computer ... but can't find it now ... so I'll paint a visual:

In order, front to back:


.....large rolled piece of outdoor carpet ...1 folding chair .. 1 sm table
Hoses->5 Gallon H20 Tank->5 gallon H20 Tank->15 gallon Blue Tote
..............3 folding chairs .... 1 large folding table .........................

Hope that makes sense.

We also kept our dirty hiking boots and a shoe scraper up there.

As I said, anything that could be muddy, stinky, wet, or otherwise obnoxious (and no, I don't ride up there!)

Hey, I never claimed to be an artist.

For that matter, I never claimed to be anything ... except a very, very happy camper!

Yeah, I think we'll get someone else to do the lettering for the FiberglassRV.com decal/plaque/bumpersticker thing. :wink

:sunny (Charles knows I'm just teasing him.)

Hey, hey, hey ... it was hand drawn with love.

I mean, what could be better? Something computer generated?

I think not!

It shows I care ... a lot.

Do you know how long I worked on that drawing?

That's a trick question, right? :shg

>>trick question

Yes, it is ... because actually, that was my second attempt at drawing my layout ... my first attempt was too messy!

So you have to "double" the time you think I spent!

Maybe we should have a poll.

Charles,
I showed my wife the drawing and she just cracked up.

I'll have you know that I was once accepted into an art school, after filling out an application I found inside a book of matches.

The acceptance letter said I "showed extreme talent."
