Phil,

I don't think your pic is of the new standard offering box that I was talking to them about. It looks too short. ...but maybe I am wrong...

The new box they think will fit what I was afraid was a custom need will carry three Jerry cans in a top interior compartment and a Honda 2000 generator in a lower interior compartment. It did sound like a single door with a better seal (a seal similar to what your photo shows). There is an option to have the rail on the top or not.

This brings it to a height that if a bike rack were mounted on the top that it would clear a 37 inch tire mounted on the other end of the bumper.

I was showing it more for the improved sealing and lip around the lid which is an improvement to previous design.

Ahhh... I see...

Yes, that does look like the new door, seal, and lock setup. I asked if it would be more dust-proof, and they said it would be more water-proof....
