Campervan storage

As you're getting for your next adventure, it's a good idea to invest in high-quality, durable storage solutions that can keep up with your life on the road.

RUX Carriers

RUX's collapsible and weatherproof design storage carriers are lightweight enough for easy transport, with plenty of room for on-the-go organization. The removable tri-fold lid gives you quick access to cargo space while straps, pockets, and bags clip in and out of utility rails—so you can assemble the perfect setup no matter where you're headed next! Shop the RUX 70L Gear Bag for lots of storage room, or opt for a smaller carrier like their RUX 25L Gear Bag, perfect for packing a change of clothes, sunscreen, snacks for the trail, and more.

Yeti Totes

Yeti's totes have become practically synonymous with vanlife—and it's not hard to see why! Their case-like construction and lid design keep items secure and protected from the elements no matter where you go, and since they're also stackable, you can easily store multiple containers in one spot. Try their Hopper Flip 12 Cooler, perfect for keeping drinks cold with its durable waterproof fabric and thick insulation. The zipperless entry also makes it easy to get in and out of your cooler, so you won't have to worry about items spilling or falling out during transport.
