I currently use the original shipping box to transport the dob in the back of my pickup to my dark site. But it's starting to fall apart. I an  unable to find a Rubbermaid box large enough (18 x18 x39) to hold it. Does anyone know of a container that may work?  I can build one out of wood but I would to prefer something that is lighter. 

Thanks.

Maybe this one but you would have to check the inside dimensions.

I think you can find a larger one if needed.
