AJB; it's a NRS Canyon box, $160 at LL Bean. NRS is a Canadian company.

I had to modify the tongue jack for the crank handle to clear the box.

I have been a little hesitant to bring our bikes to the beach because of concerns about rust. Do you find your bag keeps them pretty well protected? I have been wanting to find a cover to protect them, so would love to hear about your cover. We're headed to Hunting Island State Park next month and I'd like to get one by then.

Bikes is a whole other story LOL. Unless your going to ride on the beach, or be at Hunting a long time, rust should't be a problem. We've been there a couple times, but skipped it the last trip south. I bought the bike bag to protect them while traveling. It is from Swagman. I had a few issues with it. First off it is made for the type of bike rack where the bikes hang on it. My rack is a custom made of the type where the bike wheels set on trays (Thule), so I had to cut a hole in the bag for the receiver. Slide rack tube through hole, then into receiver. The bag has a long zipper that runs from bike front wheel to rear wheel, and some straps to tighten the bag over the bikes. The zipper popped open one time, and one strap broke. We did a 4000 mile trip with this setup, and a couple holes rubbed through the bag where there was rough edges on the bikes, like on the rear rack and brake lever. I fully expected to be throwing the bag in a dumpster before the end of the trip, but it held up reasonably well and is still useable. It did accumulate some water in it because of my modification, the drain holes weren't positioned right. So as final appraisal I will say it did protect the bikes while traveling. Waxing your bike with an auto wax is a good idea prior to a trip. When we are set up on a campsite we use an ez-up type shelter with 3 sides as bike garage/ cook tent.

Someday, I will be retired and travelling south, away from the frosty cold.

This has been a great winter for you to be in Florida!!

We only spent about 2 weeks in Florida, then 3 months starting December 1 we were on the coast of Georgia, about 1 hour north of the Florida border. Even there it was an unusually cold and wet winter, but still better than the northern part of the country. We like it because it is an island with restricted access, almost no traffic, and very quiet. Florida is too busy!
