Re: Cargo Barrier


 I have just purchased the new Milford cargo net (fits vertically behind the rear seat) for $150 at the local Trade Show. Price is $270 plus $90 for fitting via the web.

 It uses the existing attachments in the rear, with a section drilled up high at the side, in the roof line.

 When I get it fitted, I will post pics. I can't use it yet, due to the baby seat requiring one of the car attachments, but I may visit the RTA and get an auxillery point attached.

Re: Cargo Barrier


$150 is a fantastic price mate.

I ended up buying a Rhino-Rack medium basket for these holidays. Really happy with it too.

I have to look into the barrier before I go to the snow in August.

Re: Cargo Barrier


 I have just been to OL to have my Milford barrier net installed and found that it does not fit. Appears it was made for the RAV. The supplier has refunded my $$$, so now I am in the market for a metal barrier. I have heard of a cheaper variant of the Milford, called the Ausguard which is AS approved to 60kg load and for around $200 as apposed to $400 or $800 for genuine Nissan.
 My question is, has anyone else used or heard of the Ausguard cargo barrier. I am interested in the mounting points mainly.

Re: Cargo Barrier


Brett, I purchased a Milford net from 4WD Warehouse in Orange last January for $256, fitted it myself.
I am very happy with the appearance of it but have not had cause to test it for effectiveness (hope I never will!). Fitting was not all that hard once all the plastic trim was removed.
I discovered that the fittings were specially made for the exy but the net was a particular size thats fits a number of vehicles. However, the fit for mine was great.

Re: Cargo Barrier


Brett,

The Milford Safety Net which I provided the link in page 2 of this thread is designed for the exy, provided you buy the correct fittings. I am surprised it didn't fit.

Re: Cargo Barrier


 Yeah Jalal, I was also surprised, but the guys showed me that it was too wide and the x-trail anchoring system (which they supplied) didn't match up properly. When I asked the supplier, he agreed that it was for a RAV/XTRAIL/TRIBUTE, and also that I was the second xtrail owner to return it. Shame, because I got it for an excellent price.

Re: Cargo Barrier


Brett,

I bought a secondhand Ausguard barrier off eBay. Before I bought it I rang Ausguard (Caddy Storage Systems in Syd) and made sure someone in Canberra could fit it.
So basically I had it fitted before our trip to Uluru/Alice Springs (just got back on Sat - and thanks heaps for the info you sent me too!).
To me it seems as good as any Milford barrier. It does have a couple more vertical members too which can only help in a (God forbid) roll over. I have'nt pulled it out yet so cant comment on how easy it is to remove.
I also called Ausguard a couple of times and found them super helpfull:
1/. to ask for some new plastic covers that cover the brackets, and they sent them to me for nothing, and
2/. When it came to install it turned out I was'nt given two little bits of steel (nut inserts I believe), and they said no probs and sent the install info and nut inserts to my installer. I paid $15 for this, although I'm not sure how much was for Ausguard and how much was the installer making some more money.

So, I'm happy with it. And it definitely was a super good idea for a big trip. I packed the rear of the exy to the roof without fear of anything falling on my kids. Also it fits really snuggly behind the rear seat which is much better than some Milfords I've seen that intrude on the storage space, but I'm not sure if this is an Ausguard feature or just a good install?

Brendon

Re: Cargo Barrier


Guys,

 Need some advice on the Milford cargo barrier. I am looking at getting one on the 'cheap', but it is for a sunroof equipt x-trail. I think it will fit my non-sunroof exy, with the only difference being that I wont be able to move it to the forward position behind the drivers seat. Does this sound right ?? Anyone know whether the mounting points are the same.

 Thanks.

Re: Cargo Barrier


Brett,

I don't think the mounting points of the cargo barrier for an exy with a sunroof are the same compared to an xtrail without one.

I suspect the mounting arms of the cargo barrier will be shorter for the barrier designed for an exy with a sunroof (as their roof is lower)

You can always buy it and swap it with Adam ]HERE emoticon

Don't take my word for granted, call the dealer and they will tell you for sure.

Re: Cargo Barrier


Brett, I would suggest the mounting points would be the same, as they have no relevance to the height of the roof. What you may find is that the barrier itself doesn't go quite as high & therefor you may have a slightly larger gapat the top!

Cheers Phil
