One reason utes and 4WD vehicles are so popular is the amount of load space they offer. They're great for shopping, carrying work gear and getting away for the weekend. If you prefer the more adventurous sort of break even a big Defender or Land Cruiser is going to start filling up, though. By the time you've loaded up tents, stoves, sleeping bags, food, water jerry cans, mozzie nets, recovery equipment, clothes, sports kit and all the other stuff you want there won't be a lot of space left. You need to think about safety, too. It's easy to get carried away and pile the load high, but what happens if you get unlucky and you're involved in an accident? Flying luggage can be very dangerous for you and your passengers, so you have to make sure it's all contained. Even driving across rough ground or a badly rutted track can throw unsecured luggage forwards, and a heavy tent or tool kit can do a lot of damage.
Milford is an Australian company that specialises in cargo accessories. You can protect your passengers with a Milford Cargo Barrier. Easily fitted, they put a tough steel screen between you and your load space. They don't take up much space but they could save lives when stuff starts flying around. They're also great if you have dogs; standard pet barriers are nowhere near this strong. The CabGard design gives similar protection to the back of a ute cab.
If you want to load up more gear than will fit in the back Milford can help you out there, too. Commercial grade roof racks let you load gear up top, and heavy duty tow bars cope with trailers and caravans. If you're planning on moving a lot of kit you can't go far wrong with Milford's quality accessories.
