Default What size RUB's for adult corn snakes?

I have always kept my corns in vivs but I'm wanting to start housing them in RUB's as I'm getting quite a few more next year. What size will be best for them to go in? Never housed in RUB's before so any advice will be appreciated.

Some people say a 50lt but i've found that ones from the range or asda 42 lt underbed storage boxes are biggers ones and cheaper only down side is their is not locks to them so when i was building a viv i have spare pieces of wood which fit perfectly along the top so i got 1 on one of them and 2 on the one on top .

Asda underbed storage don't have locks but I went to a stationary shop and got some of the big paper clamp clips for about 50p and they held the lid secure

My adult male is happy in a 33ltr because big spaces stress him out. In the Really Useful Box range, 50ltr is the same as 33 except it is taller. I'd recommend 70ltr ones which I'm going to use for my corns when I buy a rack. They are huge though, make sure to kit them out with lots of hiding places.

I use 50l for corns, on aspen for burrowing, and with branches etc for climbing.
