Everything you need to know about our Economy Aluminium Cargo Drawer
The Dunn & Watson economy aluminium cargo drawer is a lightweight, modular unit that’s perfect for canopies and 4WDs. Made locally in Australia, this cargo drawer helps to maximise your storage options, whether for work or for touring. Available in two size options and with a poly grab handle, non-locking drawer slides and a sturdy spring bolt, this cargo drawer is durable, lockable and affordable.
To give you even more storage in your 4WD, we have designed these drawers to be stackable, giving you plenty of options for storage. They can be opened and closed with one hand and are ideal for storing lots of small items that would otherwise roll around the back of your Ute or be jumbled up in boxes.
You can even go one step further and purchase our aluminium fridge slide cargo drawer that gives you a full extension fridge slide with our cargo drawer underneath. It’s designed to fit a 50L fridge but can be customised to fit larger fridges and comes with a 125kg locking drawer slide to the fridge slide component and a 125kg non-locking drawer slide for the drawer.
What’s the size of the economy aluminium cargo drawer?
The Dunn & Watson economy aluminium cargo drawer is made from lightweight 3mm aluminium and is available in two standard sizes (although custom options are available). The height of these two options is the same, however their widths and lengths are different, as follows.
Option 1: Outer dimensions – 730mm in length x 467mm in width x 160mm in height.
Option 2: Outer dimensions – 856mm in length x 575mm in width x 160mm in height.
If you need help deciding which option is best for your project, just give us a call and we can help you make the right decision. If neither of these standard sizes are suitable, we can have custom aluminium drawers ready for you very quickly.
Features of our aluminum drawers
If you want a quality drawer for your 4WD or Ute, then the Dunn & Watson economy aluminium cargo drawer is ideal for your needs. Made from 3mm aluminium at our local factory, it’s lightweight, robust and easy to install. Fitted with a pair of 125kg non-locking drawer slides, the drawer glides open and closed smoothly and the poly grab handle allows you to operate the drawer using one hand. There’s also a spring loaded bolt that ensures that it stays closed in transit or when parked on a slope. The slides are easily disconnectable, making it simple to reach something that might have fallen down the back of the drawer and also helps installation.
These drawers are designed to be stackable, making the best use of space in your 4WD or Ute and can also be installed side by side. Pre-drilled holes allow easy installation and they can be customised to suit your exact specifications.

Benefits of 125kg non-locking drawer slides
For situations where you don’t need the drawers to be in the locked position, whether open or closed, our 125kg non-locking drawer slides are perfect. With the addition of a spring loaded bolt, the drawer is kept closed, even with the non-locking drawer slides, so they are safe when driving. Another great benefit of non-locking drawer slides is that they are ideal when space is limited. This is because the locking drawer slides require an additional 25mm to operate. So you need to add 25mm to the length of the drawers, which might not be available in your vehicle.
Benefits of our economy aluminium cargo drawer
All Dunn & Watson products are made in Australia, so you are guaranteed high quality and attention to detail. It’s because we manufacture all our products locally that we can quickly customise your economy aluminium cargo drawer so that it perfectly suits your needs.
Our drawers help you to maximise the space in the back of your 4WD or Ute, as well as organise small tools or other equipment. It’s so much easier to just open a drawer to retrieve an item, rather than having to search through boxes or a jumble of tools in the back of your vehicle. You can also store dry foods, small tins or jars and other items, not just tools, in these drawers.
Since it’s made from 3mm aluminium, these drawers are lightweight, strong and robust, but they are also weather resistant and perfect for use in coastal regions. Since they are so lightweight (about 12kg per drawer), you can stack as many as you need in the back of your 4WD or Ute. Lastly, our drawers are very affordable and customised options are quickly manufactured and delivered to our customers anywhere in Australia.
