My apologies. I misunderstood your post.

I came off as a "GVWR COP" in that last post-- sorry. If a mod feels compelled please feel free to delete that post. A tool box up front is a very cool idea. I'm always considering numbers in shooting long range and I guess that carries over into my everyday thinking. Again sorry if I came off wrong.
No worries.... it's nice to have someone around that can work the numbers to help (especially newbies when they join) with towing safely. If you go to just about any other rv forum, you will find about five guys answering a gvwr/cgvwr question LOL.

Jes' wunderin'... we will be back home in another week or so. I have all the numbers there (we had tt/tv/tongue loaded and weighed) but still am concerned about our hitch/tongue weight. Can I send ya the info so next time your bored you can help us out? Thanks

I just want to use the box for hitch items and maybe a few other light weight things. For the most part the bulk of the weight in the box will be removed, because it will be attached to the vehicle to tow the trailer. The unfortunate thing about the 19bh, is the storage access from the outside is marginal at best. I will keep you all posted on my progress. Thanks for the advice JP.

Good Luck my fellow Jayco floor plan partner. [/QUOTE]

Just saw this! Too funny! It really is the best floor plan I have ever seen in a smaller trailer, that is for sure.

Just finished the tool box install. It came out great. Unfortunately, I don't have any pics yet due to the weather here. The pics really would not have come out that good. As of now, I have my battery in the tool box, spring bars, sway bars, x-chocks and a few tools for changing a tire. Other than that, I probably won't put much else in there. I had to move the propane bottles forward about 1 inch to get clearance. Pics will come as soon as I can get back to the trailer(stored at a secured location due to homeowners regs).

I'm looking forward to the pics - having a place to store the hitch & accessories in a box I can lock (with my own lock, not the standards trailer locks) would be great.

Equal-i-zer bar holder

I only need a place to store my stabilizer bars for my Equal-i-zer so I'm using a PVC tube with a cemented end cap and a screw in front cap. The tube is attached to the tongue frame behind my battery box by U-bolts. I have built a frame on the Jayco 23FB rear bumper and have a tool box mounted there. It works great. Will try to get some pictures of the installations the next time I check on my trailer at the storage lot.

THere is another post in the MODS section titled tool box mod. Go there for my pics. The tool box is a side mount tool box from Lowes.

Got my tool box. Its a 70 inch full size truck box, but its only 12.5 inches deep. Found some square bottom u-bolts at my local hardware store. Now all I need is a nice day and a freed up calander.
