How can you make your camping get away easier and quicker? Many practiced campers will have a camping box or chuck box to keep all their camping gear stored ready for your weekend or trip away.
Using a camping chuck box means all you need to do is go grocery food shopping, then pack your tent, camping boxes and food into the car / truck and away you go. No longer do you need to spend hours searching the house / garage for the stove, camping pans, sleeping gear, it’s all stored in you chuck box ready to go.
Good: Affordable (approx.$10 to 40), stackable, light weight.
Bad: Can damage easily if dropped, not completely waterproof, can be hard to find what you’re looking for if it’s at the bottom.
Good: Still affordable (approx.$40), reasonably strong, stackable, light weight, almost completely waterproof.
Bad: Once again can be hard to find what you’re looking for if it’s at the bottom.
If you have some spare time and like building stuff, then there are chuck box plans available on the net to make your own camping box which will bring the price down.
Good: Very functional when setup, quick access, great as a work surface and cooking table.
Bad: Expensive, heavier.
My preferred option is to use the plastic tubs along side a decent compact camping table, you can place your cooking stove on the table, not quite as functional as a full purpose built camp kitchen chuck box but a lot lighter and cheaper. At the end of the day what you are trying to achieve is to make camping easier, so you can get away more often with less hassle, enjoy your trip!
