That's exactly why I wound up buying all the different size Pelicans. Getting it all down to where it's organized and still portable took years of juggling equipment around and figuring what can go where. Maybe unbelievably, the biggest problems I had started when I began downsizing to backpacking gear. Not cooking so much? I don't need a two burner stove when a single will do. Going 12 volt for lighting meant no carrying gas or bulky propane cans and big lanterns. But, because I like my comfort, I still wound up bringing more things with me. I take more stuff on group trips than I do on solo trips. Obviously, winter trips require more gear than warm weather. Also obviously, the length of a trip also dictates how much and what I take. While I wouldn't necessarily recommend buying Pelican cases unless you don't mind being in debt (I'm stupid like that), there are alternatives. I've seen people do very well with collapsible totes and milk crates. As far as figuring what to take and what to leave home, try looking at past trips and what never seemed to leave the box or duffel you brought it in. I used to bring way too many kitchen items and too many clothes. A little planning put an end to that and freed up a lot of space.

There are a few things that you can do in your kitchen redesign to enhance its general capacity, for instance, including more cupboards or stretching out your current cupboards to the roof can help give more storage room...

They look very similar to the Pelican Storm cases I use. I'd never heard of them before but they do seem to be available here - just searched "front runner cases" and, sure enough, their site popped up.

(Not sure why, but towing companies sure seem to like to throw their links on this site.)

We like camping.

Plus here in South Africa we have really big animals so you need something sturdy that can take a beating when things get dangerous.

We also have 4X4 trailers that are designed with to specifically fit these wolf traps.

It just occurred to me that I never mentioned how my camp kitchen worked out. I believe in another thread I posted pics of my juke all packed up. The camp box (bin/tote, as I interchange names, lol) fit fine. Between the two bins, as pictured, I had chosen to pack into the larger black one. The other one was smaller (it's same type, just smaller and blue), and though would have packed nicer in my car, the footprints were the same and the larger one fit everything I wanted to pack in it and then some extra. The kitchen box & stove worked well setup on the picnic table in the screened house (dishpan sat on top of that), while the smaller coffee box (a much smaller bin of a different kind) stored under my coffee station setup inside my tent (can be seen in pics in yet another thread). So, I'm sorry pics are all split up now, but I had reasons for new threads, they were used in appropriate topics.
Anyway, all worked out well, and I'm looking forward to planning a spring and a fall trip at least in 2019. Oh, and yeah, the duffle worked great for carrying my glamp-style bedding, lol.

Gotta love it when a reorganization works like you expected it to.

That way, whatever the trip dictates that I need, I'll have a box to fit my stuff.




As far as not having room in a car, I'm pretty sure all but the smallest cars can get a trailer hitch put on - and a hitch mounted rack can do wonders for hauling extra gear.

I always use totes and I also use suitcase sometime. It definitely depends on you. If you want to hear from me I will say to use totes.
