    Hi, if you have one of the first generation “Zipper” top boxes that you don’t want - please contact me.

    I know they leak but I prefer the look of them, so would like to get one!

    I am based in Europe.

    Cheers!

    Hello,

    I managed to find one on eBay a little while ago which as the original poster says looks better in my opinion than the Highlander Box that was supplied. So far not found it to leak.

    It would pay the OP to save a search on eBay maybe so that you get alerts when one is listed?

    The good news is that when you find one the handle & lock swap is very easy with removal of the entire assembly and swapping shouldn't take more than an hour.

    Best regards,

    David :028:

    Hello,

    The one on eBay is the tall non-zip type but that is quite a price!!

    I managed to get my second hand zip type on eBay for £106 delivered which included the fitting plate. Of the two types I do prefer the zip type one for use on a daily basis so understand where AussieKiwi is coming from.

    Best regards,
