    Considering Adding A Trailer Box - Suggestions / Thoughts?

    Hi All,

    I have a 2012 EZ Loader dual PWC trailer. I use it for our Seadoo RXT and RXP pair. I am strongly considering adding a trailer box to it. Want it to look nice so thinking about a diamond plate A Frame style.

    Anyone have any brands or places they look / would recommend? My trailer has the center walking platform so want to make sure the box will not be in the way of using this.

    Thanks!

    I bought the tradesman 21" diamond plate one from homedepot. For under 200 bucks I feel it is a good deal. There are some nicer ones but for the difference in price I did it see value in them.

    Here is an alternate way to mount a trailer box.

    I wanted to be able to walk down between the watercraft, and easily stand at the box to rummage around inside looking for items. I also don't like straddling the trailer tongue to get at the box.

    This arrangement works quite well for me. The box is bolted to the frame at three corners using flat aluminum spacers where needed.

    Another great idea! Thanks. I like the look of diamond plate but unsure I want to spend the coin on one.

    Went to walmart near me and got a Plastic/polycarb box for my vests, oil, etc. Works great, has hasp to lock the box and large enough to fit all the vests (five of them, oil, tools, etc). For $50 could not go wrong. Mounts to the front tongue area and will post picks for you if you want.

    Be careful transporting oil inside the trailer box. If the oil container(s) get bounced too hard by the trailer on a rough road it can create a huge mess inside the box.

    If there is enough length on the tongue and some frame width to stabilize the storage box, why not?

    Don't under estimate the amount of shaking and flexing the trailer frame will impose onto the storage box. The mounting must be able to handle the twisting and flexing.

    I prefer to carry the oil inside the tow vehicle where it has a less violent ride. If needed, put the bottle(s) inside a huge zip lock type storage bag. Oil containers, especially once opened, just don't like being shaken. They ooze, seep, drip. If the bottle cap gets loose or the bottle cracks, it makes a real mess.
