OK, a series of the Shelter Boxes, many of them manufactured by Zeppelin, that have been
used by the German Armed Forces.

Reading thru the German sites, everybody says you don't want anything but the Zeppelin made ones if building a camper. Those have way better insulation and other than the bottom container locks no metal going from outside to inside transferring cold.

TRUKTOR, Do you have any tight shots of the aluminium rail system? It looks like what I would call 'speed rail'. That might be the wrong word but you have probably seen it on an insert or camera car rig. Some of my contacts here may know where to get compatible hardware.

Some interior rail details….the locking bolts/lugs show up on EBAY.De, as do the tie-downs, and the corner brackets which locate the box in the bed.

Thanks, It isn't what I thought it was...the extrusions with the semi circles in the rails. But hey if that works and the fittings can be had that's great. It looks like they have thought of everything. You could probably turn that box upside down and nothing would move except maybe that map on the table. What would those fittings and hardware be called in German do you suppose?

I don't know, but you can bet there are piles of that hardware hitting the surplus market
in Germany, along with the boxes.
