Recumbent Bicycle rear basket
This page is all about the basket I make specifically for recumbent bicycles. I also make all kinds of baskets for other types of bikes.
Note that the basket is shaped like the back of a boat. This gives a reasonably aerodynamic shape (your luggage being behind you, this is surely more aerodynamic than panniers) and a sleek look. A stripe can be made in several colours.
A hole can optionally be provided for a camelbak (or similar) tube to reach the rider from inside the basket.
The interior size varies depending on the size of basket requested. In this case it is approximately 30 litres in size, which compares well to many panniers. As this mounts on top of a rear rack, it can be used at the same time as panniers hanging from the rack.

Mounted on a Flevobike Oke-Ja (similar in dimensions to the BikeE)
Other sizes can be made to order, and different (natural) colour willow can be added:
For a basket of 15" (38cm) wide, 16" (41cm) long and 10" (25cm) deep and with a lid, the price is . This includes a single lorica strap to hold the basket shut. Without a lid, the same size of basket costs .
I rode from Land's End to John o'Groats on the PDQ using the basket to carry much of what I had with me. It's very practical.
