The company who mfgd. them sold out to another company. The new company dropped the line and just focused on other things hunting. I think it is patented. Too bad someone like Coleman, Cabella's, REI, or Bass Pro Shops couldn't buy it and have it produced for them. It's a heavy duty plastic material and is rugged. A camp stove can be put on top on the inside also.
The new company is Plano.. Fishing tackle, gun cases etc. They don't apparently feel the "need" exists to produce them again. That's why the prices are so high! Unless you, and you were, lucky to find a deal!
There is another company that has a similar one called beaver tree. But Campmate appears to be better quality.
What do you mean.....other RV's appropriate items left in plain view? Noooooo!
Nothing that I have.....is worth your life!
