Default Trailer Toolbox?

Do any of you carry a mounted toolbox on your trailer? Sometimes, I get caught having to tow with the wifes suburban and do not have my jack, etc. Thus, I was thinking if I just put the toolbox on the trailer, I wouldn't have to worry anymore. I have seen them however, can not find them - anyone who has one, let me know if they are any good.

Was thinking about the same deal myself. Found a ton of boxes on Ebay of assorted sizes and relatively reasonable

Sean,

Check with: Mark (Miklovitz) at Outlaw Motorsports in Culpeper, VA
(540) 829-0300

He is on OSO as OutlawMark, and owns a 37AT. He got a nice box for DocmanRich37's Myco and its look great.

I just bought two off of E-Bay and the are nice! I did weld up some L-Brackets and mount them on the inside then put wood in the bottom because of the weight and bouncing. If you need some pics. let me know.

Awsome to have them ... but you will need more than one. You'd be surprise how much stuff you will store in there that is needed.

29Kilroy - I would love to see some pics - do these come with mounting hardware? Am interested in how you secured it to the trailer...

Brian - GoCiggie31 dropped a thread in here that has a picture of yours. Was that done by Mark or did you have that handled elsewhere? I like how yours is done.

Will be calling Mark this week...
