I would take off the factory bumper and extend the frame with plates on either side of the 'I' beam, at least 18 inches in, then make a stiff custom bumper from tube steel, to attach the removable box. What I have noted from cargo baskets and such that go in to receiver hitches, is that they are good for a cooler or less of weight, but put too much leverage when weighted on the receiver, which would crumple a factory tt bumper.

If you looking for added storage, look to wasted space inside. Pull off some removable panels and see what you can do with that, folks on this forum, along with myself, have had great luck with that.

For exterior storage, look for a tongue box if you have room. And if you are feeling adventurous, there is a ton of waisted space under the trailer. Impersonally am looking into building metal frames the same depth as the 'I' beam frame that will house the large, thin, ammo cans on their side.
