Great looking box...... Nice work, My only issue would be carrying propane back there... in the event of a rear end collision, that would be ugly. But that may just be me...


The propane tank is pretty tough. Impact is more likely to shove it, and rest of box, into the trailer than "turn ugly"
OP, looks good to me. But I do have a question; Do you have a vent oi the bottom incase that propane tank heats to overpressure? Opening a box full of fuel/air mix would be more risk than collision

It looks nice. My concern would be the amount of weight you have added way at the back. You need to get to a scale and make sure you still have at least 18 percent of your total on the pin. Otherwise it may be very unstable driving.


I haven’t weighed it. Just pulled it over 1000 miles. Was as solid as before. I figure the washer in the overhead closet up front pretty much compensates for the weight change.

I did not think about any ventilation. I’ll have to re-think the propane tank storage. Maybe some long line adapters from front tanks and skip the spare.

It’s not what you’ve done that commands respect, it’s what you do.

Happy Campin’
