How does it go? Measure twice cut once? I bought a box on craigslist and it won't fit. Back to my search and posting this one back on craigslist lol. I want mine to be a little bigger to hold my grill, only place in camper it will fit is the pass through storage area, but doesn't fit through outside access. Have to remove dinette cushion and ply wood and still it's tricky to get in there. Don't want the grease in there.

For what it's worth I keep my grill in the pass through, in its bag (lined w a trash bag)
No issues so far.

Brownie.... was even thinking about a tote to put it in. Love this new camper just doesn't have as much storage as I would like. Couldn't pass up the price though. It just has one big pass through that I'm trying to organize but seems like I have to take every thing out just to get one thing I need. In time I'll keep improving it

I attached this Kobalt box to my travel trailer. I squeezed it in between my ProPride hitch jacks and front of camper. I attached it to frame with some U bolts, so I didn't have to drill into my frame Click image for larger version

I had the same problem with the storage, but I solved it with a sliding tray. I built it using 8' garage door rails and rollers.

That is a great idea. I might have to plan on something like that.

That's the fun in it doc73. I have made over 30 mods to our Avenger 27BBS and still counting. From Ground Control remote leveling to a fireplace. If it makes it more comfortable and convienent then I'm for it.

Eye man,

You have a picture of how the rollers are set up to roll on those tracks?

No picture, but I'll try to describe. I built a stationary frame of 2x4s. One 2x4 on each side of the tray, both resting on 3 cross member 2x4s laying flat. The rollers (4 on each side) are mounted on the inside of the side rails by driving the shafts of the wheels into the 2x4s with clearance for the wheels to turn freely. The tray will slide out from either side of the trailer with stops to keep it from coming out too far. I also put dead bolt latches on each side side of the frame end to lock it in place to keep it from moving within the closed doors. Hope this helps, but let me know if this is confusing.
