Added storage- jayco 19h

We needed more storage to store the outdoor rugs and also the hoses. So this is what we came up with. Click image for larger version

Nice!!! I looked at doing the same thing to be able to store some blocks for the stabilizer jacks, but not enough room in our trailer.

Gives added security for your batteries as well!

I would be suspect the tongue weight would be over. Not a lot of weight to be added up front without going over.

Good idea, what is your tongue weight at now?

Looks good. The potential heavier tongue weight can be easily countered by storing more of your heavier stuff inside the trailer behind the axles. Use the bathroom scale method to help balance the load.

Are you storing the batteries inside the toolbox? If so then you need to make a provision for them to be vented. As batteries charge they give off hydrogen gas. It is toxic and corrosive and explosive in high levels. Look at the plastic battery boxes and you will see vents in the lids. I know west marine or other similar stores would have vents that can be installed over a cut out. I've had to do this several times on boats. Vent needs to high on the box. Gas rises and will dissipate on it's own. Just have to give it somewhere to go.

If you are concerned about added tongue weight , another box could be added to the rear bumper providing the bumper is strong enough. I tied my box on the bumper and tied it into the frame.
