under frame storage

Starting a new project going to make a storage area between the cross members of my frame to store the sway brakes, weight distribution bars and other dirty or wet items like water hoses. Fiberglassing plywood to make a 4x4 storage area then using machine screws to attatch to frame. will send pics in spring when completed.

It sounds like a good idea and it sounds like that it's to store heavy items after you arrive. I used to throw them in the back of the truck, untidy! Just keep in mind that any weight you add for traveling either adds to or takes away from the tongue weight. Keep this balance in mind. Also the trailer will do a lot of bouncing and don't wan't it to bounce apart. You might want to use heavy bolts and nuts instead of machine screws all around.

to answer questions its a 2009 v lite 30wrls and it is more to store weight distribution bars and sway brakes, I also plan on water hose and some tools. going to make others for the waste hose out of pvc. As to the weight should be less than 10 lbs.

All the Items that will be in there will just be transfered from one storage area to this one just trying to keep things clean. No muddy hoses or greasy bars in regular compartments when home.
