I would like to put a box just like you did and add a battery switch and a solar trickle charger on top of the box. May I ask how wide that box is?

6ft total but the "ears" are 6" each so the box is approx 1x5. I used 3/4" plywood to line the inside bottom. This added a lot of rigidity.

How did you end up mounting the box to the frame? I'm interested in something like this for my 23MBH. Thanks!

I lined the inside with 3/4" plywood to add rigidity to the storage box. It's screwed from the bottom-up. It's also more convenient for tying things down such as the battery box.
I needed to raise the storage box about 1.5" to clear the existing frame angle iron which is used for securing the battery. So I used 2 oak rails (painted with Tremclad) and bolted them to the A-frame. The box is then screwed into those.

Battery Box on Nose

I am running a Thomas John Deere Battery box BB-4 on my trailer nose. A Starcraft which is now a Jayco design 2016 26 BHS. It holds six sized 27 batteries for my solar array. My tongue weight was 540 Lbs. and is more like 820Lbs now to much for half ton truck but my 3/4 handles it fine. It is a heavy wall fiberglass box wall thickness is between 3/8 and 1/2 depending on area. Damn strong box with lots of protection for my $1100 in batts.
