Okay..I mentioned this above..probably one of the best things to fit a gen 1 astro between the seats for storage..
This is a Coleman Brand Basic storage/picnic table unit..PRO features:
A: The same exact height as the cup holders over the factory carpet(right now it sits 1/4" above because I have a secondary 1/4 thick carpet over the original carpet.
B: the top makes a nice table between the seats..and allows a couple inches on each side to fasten your seat belt.
C:The compartment in the center is probably about 7x20 and pretty much square, minus about 1" in height from the cupholder(allowance for lid).
D: The lid snaps in upside down with center circles for bowls.and other small compartments for Sorting out your Glove compartment???...
E:Unfolded ..it makes an overall table for two of 22"X40(or you can just unfold one side for one person..if you take along a couple folding chairs to sit outside the van (waiting for ferries).
F.The legs snap in under the table side pieces for storage.
G: It allows enough room ahead of it to open the glovebox without moving it and still be ahead of the back of the seats(your 8' for sliding in plywood sheets).
H:Weighs less than most coolers that size..
H:Hey it's RED(and white)! It matches the van!(or could match a white one)
A:It's not insulated as a cooler would be...but waterproof(Bag of ice?)
B:It's all plastic..but sturdy for being made of that..nothing has broken in maybe 10 years of owning it.
C:I need to add some rubber sheeting to the feet to hold it more in place over the laminate floor area(I have maybe 3 other places to use/store it over the lam floor in the back of the van.
D:Can I sit on it?..probably strong enough..but I'm not going to chance that.
E:More than likely it is no longer being made or available.I got it at a thrift store for about $8,if I remember right.
I've never seen another one.
And Just checked ebay and google..someone has one for $40(with $168 for shipping!) on ebay and another is here(shipping?NC)--->
The cooler is very excellent condition like new. Color red and white and folded measures 22.5” wide,12.5” deep and 15.5” tall.
Appears BASIC is not Coleman but Cigarettes?!..making it collectible to someone I guess..
Yes..I do have a cooler tht fits between the seats also..a blue one in the blue van..
Inside the compartment right now..bottle of slime/air foremergency flat repair,pair of 1990 visors(I'm upgrading to 3 way newer ones),a 12 volt quick jump system in its case..miscellaneous other van parts/junk..it's deep!
I'll probably make/add another matching wood layer over the cup holder above the doghouse.. to match the back cabinets so they will hold drinks better.
I do have the overhead console for some Metsker's maps,sunglasses,phone,vehicle registration and insurance papers so they are easy to find there,no digging.
Anyway..if you find one somewhere GRAB IT! Pics..
