  • Can Buyers Products Trailer Tongue Toolbox Mount to Straight Tongue
  • It's possible to do, but there is not a bracket or recommended method of installation for a straight tongue trailer to mount an A-frame tool box like the Buyers Products Trailer Tongue Toolbox # 3371701680. Realistically, due to its shape you're going to have to fabricate some type of base that forms the shape of the toolbox (or something close), and mount it to that base. Otherwise, you'd have to put it inside your trailer, and if the 19" depth of the # 3371701680 is too much you...

  • A frame Trailer Steel Toolboxes Strength and Durability
  • If you're looking for heavy duty and don't mind it weighing more on your trailers tongue, then I recommend going with a steel toolbox for your trailer like the RC Manufacturing T-Series Trailer Tongue Tool Box - A-Frame - Steel - 5.2 Cu Ft - Black item # 313-TM362016M. The RC tongue box is made from 14-gauge steel. Not only is it bigger but its made of a heavier gauge steel. Steel toolboxes are strong and normal exposure to water will not cause corrosion.

  • Can a Person Stand on the Lid of the UWS 42" Chest Tool Box
  • The UWS 42" Standard Chest Toolbox part # UWS01015 is a very solid box. I would have no worries with putting 225 lbs. on top of it. Sitting no issue.

It weighs about 45 lbs so you would want to make sure not to exceed the weight capacity of the cargo carrier on the back of your motor home.

  • Since the UWS Underbody Toolbox - Single Door - 6.8 cu ft # UWS04010 can be mounted in a variety of ways there is no specific mounting kit for it. I reached out to my contact at UWS and he said that they recommend visiting your local outfitter so that box/bracket can be installed to the frame of your vehicle.

  • Will The DeeZee Specialty Series Trailer Tongue Tool Box Hold Propane Tanks
  • I have a solution for you, but since you require a minimum of 12" x 24" to store these propane tanks, I don't believe that the DeeZee Specialty Series # DZ91717P is going to work for you since it's only 18" wide at the front of the box. I think the best solution to store your propane tanks is going to be the UWS A-Frame Trailer Toolbox # UWS01039 which has 21" of internal height and 24" at the front in order to provide you with sufficient room to store multiple propane tanks.

  • Can an A-Frame Tool Box be Used as a Propane Tank Cover?
  • Though the UWS A-Frame Trailer Toolbox - 6.3 cu ft - Gloss Black # UWS01065 will measure 49 inches at the back, 24 inches at the front, 18 inches deep, and 21 inches tall, I cannot suggest using it as a propane tank case. This is due to propane tanks having a vent that will release pressure if the pressure in the tank gets too high. Tool boxes like the # UWS01065 will seal when locked and could cause something catastrophic to occur. What may be a better option, though not quite to your...

  • Is the Aluminum A-Frame Trailer Tongue Toolbox 350970 Waterproof

  • Recommended 15 inch Tall A-Frame Cargo Box
  • Although none of the trailer tongue toolboxes we offer precisely meets the measurements you provided, we have options that could work for you. The most obvious choice and what I'd recommend would be the UWS # UWS01039 box you'd looked at. At 24 inches wide at the front, there'd still be enough contact with the trailer frame rails that it could still be securely attached to the trailer frame. The box measures 49 inches wide at the rear, 24 inches at the front, 18 inches deep front to...

  • Recommended Tool Box for A-frame of Aluma Aluminum Frame Enclosed Trailer
  • We have the DeeZee Specialty Series Trailer Tongue Toolbox - A-Frame - Plastic - 6 Cu Ft - Black # DZ91717P or aluminum options like # DZ91717 or # 350975. I've attached a link to all of your options so you can see the different sizes available. I don't recommend putting a steel box on your aluminum trailer due to galvanic corrosion potential, so I'd go with one of the polyethylene or aluminum options and use zinc plated mounting hardware. This should work well for your application.

  • Mounting Methods for UWS Underbody Aluminum Trailer Toolbox UWS04012
  • The UWS Underbody Aluminum Trailer Toolbox # UWS04012 does not include any mounting hardware since it is a general-purpose product. So you'll determine the best installation method for your preferred mounting point on your specific trailer. The amount of weight you'll load into it should be taken into account as you determine the mounting location and method of attachment. The box itself weighs about 50-lbs. You might use L-brackets like # CE10211G, if you don't mind drilling into the...

  • A-Frame Trailer Box to Fit Batteries on Tongue of Trailer

  • Mounting the Aluminum A-Frame Trailer Tongue Toolbox to the A-Frame of The Trailer
  • There is no mounting hardware included with the Aluminum A-Frame Trailer Tongue Toolbox, item # 350970, due to the different construction and mounting locations that may be required for many different styles of trailers. I would recommend using a properly sized drill bit to drill 4 mounting holes in the proper locations on your trailer frame. Keep the holes as far to the front, back and sides of the box as possible for the most secure connection. Then use bolts, washers and nylon lock...

  • Carrying 2 Batteries and 2 Propane Tanks on a Trailer Tongue
  • Propane tanks can't be store inside of an enclosed container like a toolbox. If they build enough pressure it has to vent out to open air. That is why the plastic propane tank covers you see on trailers are open at the bottom. I recommend a traditional dual tank cover, # CAM40523, for the propane tanks so you are nice and safe there. The batteries can go into a box. I recommend box # TLA7708R which is designed for batteries. It is 26-3/4 inches long, 8-3/16 inches wide, and 13 inches...

  • Is DeeZee # DZ91716 Trailer A-Frame Mounted Toolbox Strong Enough to Stand On
  • The DeeZee # DZ91716 is constructed of .056 aluminum tread plate. Due to the fact that the box isn't very large, the box is pretty rigid but I wouldn't recommend standing on it. We offer another similar box from RC Industries, part # 350970 that's constructed of thicker aluminum tread plate (.072), but they don't recommend standing on it either. We do indeed ship to Canada. If you'd care to see a product description video for either box, click the provided links.

Attaching it requires a little bit of creativity, the easiest way to do this would be to use U-bolts that are large enough to fit the tongue of your trailer.

  • Recommendation for Lightweight 14" Wide Trailer A-Frame Toolbox

Since weight is a concern with the steel options, I recommend considering an aluminum box such as the DeeZee # DZ91716, which provides 3.71 cubic feet of storage space but measures just 14-1/4" wide. The lightweight aluminum construction keeps the weight of this unit down to just 26 pounds, which is just a few pounds heavier than the plastic boxes you were looking...

DeeZee box # DZ91717P does open a full 90 degrees. I have included a link to this box for you. It is a little different, it is made of poly-plastic and not metal. We also have RC toolbox # 350970 which opens a bit further than 90 degrees. I have linked a video of this box too.
