I did something similar with 2 battery boxes, 1 mounted on each side of the spare tire. I use those for wood leveling blocks, so there is not much weight. I also mounted them as close a possible to the camper, so the weight is not hanging way behind the bumper.

You will need to keep a close eye on the bumper welds and be aware of the weight added to the toolbox, so your bumper doesn't end up in the middle of the road somewhere.

Home depot had the exact box on clearance for $30.00 last weekend... contemplated buying one for another deal... like the gasket on the lid.. heavy made.

It ends up being very light actually. Especially if you're just doing dump fittings and hoses and gloves.
