It just sits in the tray although I have cushioned ours on all sides with some rubber buffer material where it comes in contact with the tray to both prevent the tray damaging the fridge/freezer and also to stop movement and therefore rattles. There's no need to secure it further, it can't go anywhere.Thanks everyone for a very useful and informative thread!
I will be fitting our calicap 700 this weekend to house our CFX35 and a selection of 'Borris boxes'
A question to those with a similar setup; does the coolbox stay in place on the tray or does it require fixing in some way?
Thanks in advance!
Welcome and hello Rhyd and Izzy,
Thanks Borris, that's super helpful!Welcome and hello Rhyd and Izzy,
The seat covers are Inka sourced via the dealer. If you are a Club VIP member the dealer should give you 5% discount on accessories etc. They are essential with kids and dogs (not that we have a dog). We have eight grandchildren instead so protection is essential. Therefore we have the Inka seat covers on all seven seats, waterproof mattress covers on both beds sourced direct from Comfortz (now available via the club shop). The mattress cover for the downstairs bed was custom made though.
We also have Brandrup carpets through out and mats over the top to keep it easy clean. The rest of the van is wipe clean plastics so ideal for sticky kids and babies.
Like you I'm sure, we always have several packs of baby wipes with us. BTW, the seat covers are wipe clean but can be washed on a cool wash to bring them back to as new.
Hi, may we ask did you go for the pull out drawer & storage boxes for a 2 seater Beach? We think this is the system we would like to adopt although still waiting on delivery of our vehicle. Any comments, advice on how you've found this system would be appreciated, thanks.Thanks @Borris for the box sizes and all the other invaluable info. That is what I love about this forum, so much knowledge sloshing around (see what I did there?)
I have just realised though that as we are getting the 2 seat version this set up won't quite work for us (lucky I read the threads about different multiflex board heights ) I'm going to have to adapt the packing to fit our set up and the fridge will have to go behind the front passenger seat but the principle of the calidrawer and euro boxes combo is a winner...
Hi @BeagleMum, no we haven't yet. We've only had the van for 3 months so want to use it for a good while first to see if the drawer would be right for us and our needs. I don't think you can buy them at the moment anyway, due to BrexitHi, may we ask did you go for the pull out drawer & storage boxes for a 2 seater Beach?

The 760mm fits the standard space behind the bench. The 800mm allows you to use standard 400x600 plastic crates, but you have to move the bench slightly forward. I have (and recommend) the 800mm version.There is two sizes of this pull out drawer, 800mm ans 760mm. Which one should be used with an Ocean?
This might helpI'm planning on making one. it seems the hinges are about €160, then I am just going to put a simple self of wood (marine ply) on them. (rather than making a complicated metal frame). I will naturally catalog the whole process/disaster on here for your benefit.
Thats an excellent piece of work, well beyond my ability I'd happily pay someone to make one up thoughThis might help
Having seen the boot drawer a few times but put off by the horrendous cost I decided to make one. Total cost is about £160, the most expensive bit being the locking sliders at just over £100. The frame is made from 100 X 100mm alloy angle with the corner plates being from steel to give more...vwcaliforniaclub.com
