I inherited a great box that has served the "Old Crows" in grand
style, well designed but the thing that makes it special is the
table that was designed to fit over the top for transport. It
makes life much more enjoyable. It was originally designed to
fit the former SM's vehicle - keep this in mind in design. But
since I now haul it in the back of my VW bus it is not a big
problem but still takes minimal space with the table. Will
send you the dimensions if you wish - but best advice is
to measure the vehicle first. I popped out the back glass
in my Honda wagon, when I got in too big a hurry and
didn't have it all the way in, If the box would have been
designed for my honda I could have saved a back glass and
of course major embarassment. Drop me a note if you need
the dimensions of both.
