    personally i would think that any of the roof boxes would do if you can find one the right dimensions.
    other than that a call to peter at Johns Cross they will carry a stock of rear boxes.
    maybe some of the other dealers may have one off a second hand motorhome.

    I got a Fiamma Ultra box off Ebay, took a while to find one at a decent price, got mine for £50 had to make some new fixings but does the job. Take note of the sizes, the bigest one is quite wide.

    You say your going to use your backbox to keep your generator and things in.
    Having seen how easy it is to open a plastic Fiama backbox I am in the process of having one made from checkerplate aluminium. The backboxes are just at the right height to be easily broken into and all the scroats know that we keep the genny in there.

    yes the security issue is a problem, I think all the Fiamma back boxes use the same key :Eeek:. I only keep chairs etc in ours, if it wasn't in the box, it would be under the van while on site.

    check what weight the bike rack can carry then deduct the weight of the box this will then give you how much load you can carry in the box, mine was 60 kg and box weighed about 18kg ,but because it sticks out from the back of the van and the weight increases because of the cantilever action you have to be sure you have enough spare pay load on the back axle, (if you understand what i am saying:BigGrin:)
