Does anyone know if someone makes an under-seat storage solution that only occupies 1/3 or 2/3 under the back seat?

I like the amount of storage under the rear, but I also don't need the entire width taken up by a storage system. For example, I'd like to keep all my tie downs and tarps in the back right 1/3rd, then keep the left side completely open so I can place storage bins that fit perfectly there.

With the current solutions I've seen from both Honda and Du-Ha, it's "all or none". Anyone know of any partial-width solutions?

I've also debated either making one myself with plywood or modifying the Du-Ha to essentially only occupy 1/3 width (cut out most of width, then "endcap" with the other end's cut-off piece).

Why not put your stuff in a small duffel that will easily contain your items while leaving the rest open? It's the most flexible and likely cheapest as opposed to making some fancy 'box' that fits in some percentage of the volume.

I personally use the Du-Ha, however I use a trunk organizer for my trunk. Amazon has all kinds of those, in all of shapes and sizes. Measure the area and see if you can locate one with roughly the same dimensions. These are soft-sided, but will work for your needs.

Oh I've def considered this, I'm just curious if there's a dedicated/designed solution that's specifically for the RL, but at the same time doesn't use the entire back seat for it. The bin design is what I'd find useful.

I can use a bag, but I wanna weigh all options first.

Currently both my tie-downs (Rhino heavy duty 4pk) and my bungee pack just sit on the floor between the seat rail and the rear of the cab, though they like to slide.

Thanks for suggestions folks. After some consideration, I think I'm going to take advantage of our brand new Container Store that just opened and find something that fits just right.

The collapsible bin and IKEA bags are good ideas but I guarantee they'd drive me crazy with rattles and noises.

I found some containers at Walmart. They fit under the seats perfect. If I need to I can move them to the trunk... jump starter, tie straps, and other safety equipment. I think I paid $4 each.

Nice. If it were me I would have to label the contents or I would spend my time looking in the wrong container every time.

True. Haha. That’s why I bought the clear containers. To prevent searching. 😂

I did something similar to YetiXing.
I placed two plastic bins with a non-slip mat to keep them from sliding around. In one I have stuff like glass cleaner, leather cleaner, microfiber cloths. In the other I've got a first aid kit, small plastic cases for various medicines, spare change, batteries, notepad and pen. I've offloaded things here from the center console and glove compartment.

BTW, I actually keep a pair of gloves in the glove compartment to use when handling shopping carts, gas pumps, etc. (safety during the coronavirus situation).
