Video Transcript for RC Manufacturing Trailer Toolbox - A-Frame Trailer Toolbox - 313-TM362016M Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at A-frame trailer tongue toolbox. This toolbox provides storage space for your A-frame trailer. It would be ideal for the front of a cargo, horse, or utility trailer. Keeps all your tools and gears safe and protected. Now the box is made from a 14 gauge steel construction. It's very strong and durable, features a really nice black powder coated finish, that's designed to resist rust and corrosion.

Gives the box a really great look. On the back side, it features a full length stainless steel piano hinge. This offers easy operation and maximum durability.When opening the lid, all you have to do is use the convenient latch right here. Now this is a stainless steel locking paddle latch, you can move it to a locked position. Comes with two keys that keyed alike.

That offers a really nice comfortable easy grip design. Also, this internal gas shock does a great job when it comes to assisting the opening of the lid and it holds the lid in the open position for easy access. You can load your gear or get it out quickly and easily. At the bottom of the lid, it features an internal seal. This keeps dirt and moisture out of the box, creates a really nice tight closure.You hear it click shut, it gives peace of mind to know that it is in the fully closed position.

Then when you're ready to secure your gear, just move it to a locked position and that's all there is to it. When it comes to the dimensions, I took quite a few dimensions on this box. I took overall dimensions. Here at the back it measures 36 inches edge to edge. At the front, edge to edge it's 22 inches.

Sixteen inches deep at the base, that's how much space it's going to require at the mounting location. Front to back, again 16 inches deep at the base. The overall height from bottom to top is about 29 and 3/8 of an inch tall.When it comes to the internal dimensions, I took those for you as well. Now inside the box you do have quite a bit of space. At the back corner to corner, back corner to back corner you're going to have 35 and 1/2 inches. That's from that edge to this edge. At the front, edge to edge at the base is 21 and 3/4 of an inch. When it comes to the height, I tool two different measurements. The first measurement I took from the bottom of the box to this lip right here, got a measurement of 18 and 1/8 of an inch. To this point right here, measures 19 and 3/4 of an inch. That would be basically flush with the bottom of the lid with it in the closed position.When it comes to the depth, front to back you have about 15 and 3/4 of an inch of space there to work with front to back internally. That's going to do it for today's look at the A-frame trailer tongue toolbox.

Great product built very well and shipped quick. It's going to be a good addition to my 24ft. Trailer for storage for straps and chains. 495514

Installed box on trailer tongue. It fits perfectly. So convenient to have all trailer tools and accessories right there on trailer. Piston for lid works great. I had shopped for months at retail stores and on line. This box was the best buy. 570942

Attached are the photos of my toolbox i nstallation. 483726

The steel RC tongue box is rock solid. Many boxes are flimsy and have cheap components. This box will no doubt stand up to abuse and last a long time. As a trailer manufacturer, we only install premium components on our trailers and this is out go-to toolbox. 492674

This is a really well constructed...solid box. Very happy with it. It took a bit of a beating during shipment...a few areas chipped and textured finish scraped off...but nothing to do with the manufacturer or merchant. I put it in the front of my travel trailer...behind the propane tanks. Had to move the tanks forward a bit. It now stores my two batteries, I added a marine battery switch, and it still has tons of room to hold blocks of wood, water hose, and power cord. Had to install angle iron across the front of the frame rails because it was a bit too far back to fit on top of the frame. I'm really happy with the finished product. 542207

Awesome box, cannot understate how well it is built. Very sturdy, and the handle works perfectly! I put this box on my 18ft trailer, and it looks great!! 580045

- 313-TM362016M

This is a high quality toolbox with a nicer looking finish than most boxes. Seals work really well and keep my contents dry. I would recommend this product to others. I would also like to note that this was my first purchase from etrailer and was a little nervous when ordering. etrailer was great and George kept me in the loop via phone and emails each step of the way. I was very impressed by the service that I received and will purchase from them again. 555844

- 313-TM362016M

This was my first time ordering from etrailer and was very pleased with their service and communication. Product shipped the same day I ordered it and arrived 2 days later. The packaging was damaged to the extent that I figured the tool box had to suffer as well, but to my surprise there was only one small area that needed touched up with a little black paint and did not warrant retuning. The tool box appears to be built very well and should easily meet my needs. I would purchase this tool box again and not hesitate to do business with etrailer. 511526

  • How Does A-Frame Trailer Tongue Tool Box Mount to the Trailer Frame?
  • The RC Manufacturing T-Series Trailer Tongue Toolbox - A-Frame - Steel # 313-TM362016M is just the steel box. Most people drill into the bottom of the box to hold the box to the trailer frame with self-tapping screws like # WLS100. You can weld it if desired, but that is not how most choose to attach the box to their trailer frame.

  • Is A-Frame Trailer Tongue Toolbox Made in the USA?
  • The A-Frame Trailer Tongue Toolbox # 313-TM362016M is made right here in the United States of America, as you can tell by the photo of the cutout of the bottom corner of the toolbox. It is made from 14-gauge steel for durability and there will not be an issue with rain getting inside the toolbox because it features an internal seal at the bottom of the lid.
