That looks like some pretty good workmanship.
(that second photo kinda makes it look like a coffin )

Those front decks must come in awfully handy.

Is the box removable in case an atv or something larger needed to go there? Or is it more of a permanent thing where she wouldn't be hauling anything that large?

Yes, the box is removable, it weighs about 100 lbs

I wonder what the size of that box is, compared to the size of the bike hauler area on the T12BH and A122BH. Would that fit?

Hmmm, the ideas never stop!!

We did something very similar, but we put the box towards the back of the deck (next to the camper). Our solution was a truck box from Tractor Supply for about $200.




This is also removable, but we don't anticipate (at this time) to remove it - no big toys to haul...yet!

Buying a truck box is definitely less expensive than this custom made to fit box. Just the materials were $700-.. labor, design, fabrication was her brother. She said it wouldve been a $1500- box otherwise. It fits perfectly inside the rails of the deck, widthwise and is half the length of the deck. I actually like how she had it designed it fit the front so that the equipment taken to shows tucks behind the box & with easy access into the box, no reaching over other stuff to get into the box. I am still on the fence with which way to go...I'm loving the bigger custom box but dont love the expense...will have to see what DH might come up with after studying hers...

Glenn & Debbie, Your box gave me good visual for deck storage. A few days ago, I bought a similar looking diamond plate chest to yours, off Craigslist. Its deep enough and tall enough to hold my Champion generator, dry toilet system, misc dog stuff, digging tools and anything else I want out of sight. It measures 56" wide, 19" tall and 28" deep. Its aluminum so extremely lightweight, I can move it by myself. I told Carey if it doesnt work I'll sell it for what I got it for. Thanks again for sharing photos of your mod.
