Add tool box

I replaced the cargo and spare tire carrier on my new Denali 325 with the tool box. I've had a tool box on the back of my last three campers and really love the extra outside storage.

I'll be putting the spare tire under the tongue of the camper.

Hey Dawg.
What part of Hotlanta. We lived in LaGrange for many years before retiring to Fl.

I live up on the northwest side near Cartersville now. Not really Atlanta, but since I was born there I still call it home :]

handyman, how did you mount that toolbox? Did you drill into the bumper, or use "U" bolts?

I used 4, 4" square U bolts. I didn't want to drill the bumper for fear that rust may cause some problems that could not be seen till too late.

That is awesome! I haven't noticed anything like that before on a TT. I too want more outside storage and may do the same as you in the not too distant future. Thanks for the idea.

Thanks. I've had tool boxes on the back of my last three campers and they have worked great.

Thanks. My spare tire is already under the front of my RV (5th Wheel). I am considering the tube storage for my sewage line.
