View Full Version : where to find mini tool box for tongue of trailer

02-28-2010, 02:49 PM
i'm buying a smaller trailer (7x12)... and the tongue is pretty small. Looking to get a small tool box, preferably diamond plate. Looking at tractor supply, but they are too tall! and a little too wide. I have seen smaller ones around on other trailers, but not seen any in stores or online. any ideas?

Should be for $250. For that price you could buy 50 plastic totes :)

That's a little more like it.

Looks good!

If I went with a box on the tongue again, I'd just make one out of barn board, as the rest of my trailer is made out of that anyway. However, the old box was loose due to frame rust. I strapped on an old plastic tool box that can hold a couple of small gas cans at least so they don't roll around in the trailer. Even with bungees, the cans always came loose.
