Video Transcript for MaxxTow MaxxHaul Trailer Tongue Toolbox Review

Randy: Hey guys. Randy here at etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at a storage box from Max Tow. Now, these boxes are designed to work on the front of an A-frame trailer, and essentially what they do is they going to give you a lot of storage options. We store lots of different things. We've got several trailers here, and most of them have some type of box on the front.

I like the size of this one. It's nice and deep. It's not too wide, fits onto most A-frames really well. We'll give you the dimensions on the front and back width and everything in a minute. But mainly what we store in here are going to be ratchet straps and tie downs, bungees.

We store a lot of wheel chocks in here. Castor wheels or foot plates. They're not really recommended to . Or it's not really recommended rather to leave those on as you're traveling down the road. So this gives you an excellent spot to put all that stuff in, get it out of your way, but also protect it from a weather.

We don't want those things getting rusty.We don't want a bunch of dirt and dust on them just by maybe leaving them on the trailer in a basket somewhere. So it gives us a lot of protection but also security. This one uses a lock right here on the front. The lock itself is going to come with two keys. Basically, we can place that in there.

We can lock our paddle handle there. You can see a nice heavy duty paddle handle. I like the design of that. We can lock that to prevent people from getting in, and then use one of our two keys there to unlock it and provide good access. You can see the door itself has a gas strut here, so that holds it open. You don't have to do the old hold it open with your arm while you're trying to get stuff in and out, which I really appreciate. You can also see the gasket that's going to come all the way around that front leading edge. It's just going to prevent that dust and things like that from getting over that top edge and getting down into the box.The overall construction and manufacturing on it, I really think is in line with all the other boxes that we have. They've beefed that up with another layer that also prevents us from seeing any weld marks or anything like that on top of our box. Really like the way that's set. The latch opens and it closes really well. And just look down in here, I mean there's a lot of storage room. It's nice and deep, nice and wide for your longer things. If you've got some turnbuckles and things like that, that you want to place in there we've got plenty of room there. And it's nice, again, deep so we can stack things up pretty high. Can fit a lot of goodies in there to make your trailering life just a little bit easier. And then of course the aluminum construction on the box itself is going to resist corrosion. So, like most trailers you can see this one's got the diamond plate across the front of it there. It's going to blend in pretty readily. And I like the look of them. They come in different styles.You can get them like a powder coated metal. You can get them a black diamond plate. I just prefer the way this one looks. The thickness of the aluminum, it's pretty solid. You can see when you press on it really hard, there's a little bit of give there, so I would put this in the medium duty category, as far as A-frame boxes go. Certainly not the thickest aluminum I've ever seen on one, but I think it's going to do a good job. Now, attaching the box to your trailer is going to be something that kind of varies depending on your application. In this case you can see we've got solid and steel longer beams that come up. In that case, what I would do is use four number 14 self tapping screws. You can go right through the box into the top of that A-frame and it's going to be well secured. I would use a flat washer with those, and I'd put a rubber washer underneath.Now the hardware is not going to be included, but if you go with a trailer that has the open angle iron front, you could use a pass through bolt. They recommended using carriage bolts with a rubber grommet in there, and passing the carriage bolt through that. Or you could use standard hex head bolts. If you're going to use standard hex head bolts, again, I'd recommend a flat washer with a rubber washer underneath, just to help maintain the integrity of the box so we don't have that moisture and dust creeping in on us. All right, now let's go over a few dimensions. This will help us out in determining whether it's going to work for your application or not. We'll start by the width across the front. The width across the back from tip to tip will be right at 29. Coming straight out from the back edge to the front edge here, we're just over 16. From the bottom to the top when it's closed, we're just over 18 inches. Now, if you have any type of overhangs or anything like that, we'll get a measurement to the top of it with the lid open.It's going to be right at 32 and a half. So, as long as you're in line with those measurements, I think this is going to be a really good solution for you to get stuff out of the inside of your trailer, to free up more space. Or get it in here and keep it out of the elements. Overall guys, I think this is a good decision. I've dealt with a lot of A-frame trailer boxes like this, and this one just gives us a lot of bang for the buck. And I don't think we're sacrificing anything really to get there.

Shipped to me very fast and no damages at all. Best of all it fit my trailer perfectly! Product description on the website allowed me to pick the right box for my trailer, no guessing.

Exactly what I wanted and the delivery time was excellent. The only thing that surprised me was that there are no bolts to attach the box to the trailer. Which means a trip to the store that I was trying to avoid.

I ordered tool box and something happened in the delivery. I emailed Bret with etrailer and he was all over it. He reordered and it was delivered as it was asked to be. I think etrailer did a great job! They stayed in touch with me and made things happen! I got the box I ordered. etrailer did a great job on follow up! Yes things got mixed up somewhere in transit but these guys worked it out and made it happen! Thanks everyone. Question--will I continue to do business with etrailer? Heck yes! They went beyond to take care of their customer! Thanks

Very good quality product. I like that it is light weight sturdy aluminum ( to keep tung weight down). Easy to mount on trailer frame.

great value for the money. came with a rubber lid seal to limit any water getting in. I would have given 5 stars except that the lid was tweaked a bit (maybe from shipping) and I had to tweak it back to get the latch to work properly. It wasn't much, but my OCD kicked in and made me straighten it.

Very nice, heavy duty tool box. We almost bought a cheaper one from Habour Freight, but they were out of stock. I think it would have been a rusted out box in a few years. Aluminum is worth the extra cost

Review from a similar MaxxHaul Toolbox in Trailer Tool Box


I bought this box for a very specific installation: inside the dovetail portion of my car hauler trailer to keep straps and other misc things in. I have a set back jack and a winch plate so its a crowded area, but I mounted it through the sides with some angle iron welded to the frame and bolted through instead of sitting it on top of the trailer. I am very happy with it and it works great.

Review from a similar MaxxHaul Toolbox in Trailer Tool Box


Great box. I had to build a wooden base to attach it, but it fits nicely on my Grand Design Imagine XLS 22MLE. I moved the batteries inside the storage compartment and put the new box where the batteries used to go. Just behind the Propane tanks.

Review from a similar MaxxHaul Toolbox in Trailer Tool Box


I needed a place for my straps and ball mount. This box is perfect if you only use your trailer occasionally. Well made but get a tube of silicone to seal the inside corners (very small holes). The top has a weatherstrip seal. The lock opens and closes as it should. The description says hardware not included but it is,the only thing is the u bolts are made for a small frame trailer tongue. Overall, I am very happy with this box. etrailer had the lowest price and the shipping was very fast.

Review from a similar MaxxHaul Toolbox in Trailer Tool Box


This box for the price was a good investment. It fits perfectly on my Big Tex ch70 car trailer. The angle is the same as the front of the trailer like it was made for it. I would have given it five stars if it wasn't for the paint. I realize it is in the sun, but the paint faded and now looks like black primer. You can run your hand over it and it rubs off on you like oxidation. The trailer it is mounted on is still shiny black, but beyond that it's a good box.


Comments
It is still on the trailer, no problems and it still needs a paint job but no other problems.

Review from a similar MaxxHaul Toolbox in Trailer Tool Box


A year later and the box has held up well. It fits my 2010 Rpod nicely. I did spray mine with bed liner to help protect it more. The original coating is okay, not the greatest finish, but did a little customizing so it didn't matter. I also added a couple draw latches since the key lock is hard to get to with the propane tank. So far it has served its purpose and it holds my battery and rest of my hitch equipment well.


Comments
The box is still holding up well, even out in the elements. Im sure my spray liner helped tho.

Review from a similar MaxxHaul Toolbox in Trailer Tool Box


This is a great little trailer tool box, for the money. Most others like it are twice as expensive. The metal is a bit thin, which is fine as long as you treat it nicely. I glued diamond plate to the lid of ours to allow us to set things on it without having to be super gentle. It was the perfect solution for us! The only suggestion I could make to the manufacturers to improve on this design is to add some sort of latch that will keep the toolbox closed without having to lock it. As it is, the lid’s hydraulics open the lid if the lock is not engaged - although, we found that the additional weight of the diamond plate we added fixed that too!

Review from a similar MaxxHaul Toolbox in Trailer Tool Box


Simple box that does its job well. I mounted it on the tongue of an open trailer by welding on a crossbar and bolting the box to it. Box holds ratchet straps as well as some spares for the race car. Finish has held up well so far, though I have it stored indoors.

Review from a similar MaxxHaul Toolbox in Trailer Tool Box


I am very happy with this purchase, it took me a while to find what I felt was a good value in a storage box for my car hauling trailer. There were many fancier looking and bigger name brand boxes but they all demanded a premium price, this box just holds the typical hauling gear so to me it didn't have to be super fancy. I just needed it to provide a place to store gear and provide a degree of security for said gear, I got just what I needed, it has plenty of room, and it even matches my trailer.


Comments
Still working great, I added an LED light under the lid for seeing inside it at night.

Review from a similar MaxxHaul Toolbox in Trailer Tool Box


The box seems to be very well constructed,. The shock absorber is crap. It already broke before I could even get the box mounted on the trailer. I believe it came from Dollar General. Maybe pass the word to your manufacture they might want to take a look at the hydraulic assist system again. If that’s what they are going use, then it would be better leaving it off completely.

The hitch bit is great. The tiny trailer does start start to bounce a bit on gravel. The hitch took out the vibration it doesn't bounce anymore. The box at the front fit perfectly is very solid and was easy to install. Also turned out to be a great stand for the solar panel

Review from a similar MaxxHaul Toolbox in Trailer Tool Box


I mounted this tool box on my 16" tandem axle equipment trailer. It solved my problems carrying the straps and other tie down equip. right with the trailer. No need to load an extra box in my truck. The box is very sturdy and was easy to install.


Comments
the box has worked better than I thought. Best of all it looks like it came with the trailer from the factory, and is holding up great.
