Hmm do I do this mod or make mods to my motorcycle over the winter? Too many choices. LOL I do like this mod. It gives you more storage for items such as blocks for the jacks, a place to store the WD and sway bars plus a small tool bag. Great mod and thanks for sharing it.

Why agonize over it? Do both.

I would love to do this but our trailer has a different front cap and there is NO room at all. I am moving to the rear.

BOX Site

This looks like a good site, prices seen lower and a large selection of sizes...

So, i see one of my older post has been resurrected. Mcfarmall, I looked that pic and I was thinking, I don't remember buying any feet......too funny! That's my helper. He's 6 and loves to camp. So I used the box mod this past season and was quite pleased with the results. I keep all of my wdh stuff on one side of the battery and all of my Leveling blocks on the other. I was keeping my tools in there instead of the blocks, but it just seemed to make more sense to have the blocks (something use at every setup obviously) than the tools. The tools I now just keep in my outside storage area. I can't tell you how nice it is to have all the wdh stuff right there at the hitch where you need it. As far as mounting the box itself, I didn't have to do any modifications to the tt at all. For some reason jayco builds the 19 bh with an extra long tounge. I was able to position the box so that the lid opens up pretty far. Never a problem getting the battery in and out. In fact the battery is hooked up to a brand new tender in my garage as we speak. If you have a way to do this, I highly recommend it. You will love it.

I don't think Camping World carries them...I think they are "homemade".:hihi:

I never noticed those feet before. Not everyone can hide behind a propane tank.

But, seriously, thanks for the vented top idea. I will look into it.
Hey Villain, I just purchased the same box for my camper and I plan to put it on next weekend. Have you had any issues with corrosion? Did you add any additional venting or did the 4 slots do enough? Great mod, I look forward to the extra space.

One caution I ran into doing something similar like this. If you plan on sharing the toolbox with other compartments to store tools etc keep in mind the battery fumes are very corrosive and will eat them up if they are metal. Be sure to seal off the other compartments from the battery compartment. Wood or plastic barriers will work fine.
