What is your Experience with FrontierPlay Dry Boxes?

Considering some FrontierPlay Dry Boxes and am curious what peoples experience with them are. Any known issues, or craftsman defaults? Warranties?

Same here....but I'm already psyched since it shipped on the day I ordered it and was here in three days. I'm taking it on its first trip next week, so we'll see how water tight it is. It seems well built though. I put it all together and the legs fit and it seems to seal well. I'd definitely order again....I might get one of their non-kitchen dry boxes next.

Have used one for a few years. No complaints.

Got one. Worth what I paid for it.
It's a lot better than the NRS York box it replaced!

Can't say enough good about their great customer service. I ordered a used kitchen mat. It must of been grabbed right before I ordered it. Instead of a note saying so sad to bad, I was sent a new mat for the price of the used one. To me, that speaks volumes of the integrity of company.

I bought one and returned it. Nothing inherently wrong with it, but I wanted something a bit more stout that I could sit on with NRS flip seat (which if you buy on black Friday is really reasonable) and that would clearly last me a lifetime. Hardware on Frontier Play is junk, but you'll see other's comments on that. Weld's seemed fine. I think someone said it best earlier. Nothing wrong with their boxes, but you get what you pay for.

I got mine from Mad Cow Metalworks. Definitely costs more, but the box could probably withstand a hammer taken to the lid. You decide if that matters or not.
