    Guess what's carrying your skis? ...wooden bunks ; ) I've also put a wood platform (painted) in front to carry extra cargo, still looks great after 3 years. I guess I should have also thought of that before even asking the question.

    Stainless steel screws and bolts, I would suggest.

    My suggestion was more about the amount of work required to build the wooden box compared to how well the manufactured box would work and last over time. The Contico box is tough and long lasting, still good after ten years in my experience.

    When you will have the cooler on the trailer, why would you not also be carrying the gear that normally would be in the trailer box when not taking the cooler?

    Advantage of wood (building your own)...you can customize it for whatever size you want. The prebuilt ones are kind of small.

    Downside....it's wood. It's heavy and could look really dumb if not done right. Also, you can buy decent plastic ones for 120 bucks.

    The box was not really used. Between the platform i built on the trailer and the truck bed, i have plenty of cargo

    And a rear hitch for the bikes
