if you have a 1/2 ton .. you wont need the storage. The last thing i like to do is start pulling stuff out of the trailer before i put it up ... so all my heavy stuff goes into the back of the truck, bal leveler, ice machine, EZ up, weber Q 120, a box dedicated for fixing problems on the road, and a cooler for drinks.
Decks or storage on the front of these units are nice, but put an extra amount of hitch weight on an already pretty hitch heavy little trailer. Evenly dispersed through a truck you wont have these problems ..
