    Does anyone have any suggestions for building a tool box for the front part of a trailer? I want to build one inside the trailer to store tools, string, parts etc. I have a 14 ft open trailer and would like the box to be about 5 1/2 X 4. Any pictures or suggestions?

    Many locate theirs right on the tongue...good use of space. Not sure a 5.5x4 will fit there, though.
