Expert Answers about Trailer Toolbox


  • Low Profile Quality Toolbox For A-frame Trailer
  • Yes, there is a low profile UWS A-frame trailer tool box part # UWS04531 for gloss black and part # UWS04530 for silver.

  • Best Quality A-Frame Tool Box for Sure Trac Trailer
  • I am happy to help you find a trailer tongue tool box for your Sure Trac trailer Andy. When you say you have 44 inches from the widest point, I believe you are referring to 44 inches up from the widest point of the A-frame towards the tailgate. You would still want to make sure you have a long enough space on the a-frame for a longer tool box as well. If you measure from cross member to cross member horizontally across at the widest point, you will know how long of a tool box you can fit. The...

It doesn't have any shocks or struts to hold open though. We have a similar dimension UWS box part # UWS01022 that was designed to open up like you are wanting...

  • How to Mount the UWS A-Frame Trailer Toolbox on a Trailer?
  • These toolboxes do not contain mounting hardware due to the different construction and mounting locations that may be required for many different styles of trailers.

  • Is the Aluminum A-Frame Trailer Tongue Toolbox 350970 Waterproof
  • Aluminum A-Frame Trailer Tongue Toolbox Item # 350970 is weather resistant but not waterproof.

None of the toolboxes are waterproof but as far as keeping out rain they can do that just fine.

  • Can a Propane Tank be Carried in a Trailer A-Frame Mounted Toolbox
  • No, you would not place a propane tank in something that does not get a lot of ventilation like a toolbox. Also it is possible that the inside of the box will get too hot. Propane tanks have a vent that will release pressure if the pressure in the tank gets too high which could have negative consequences. If it were me I would not put the tank in a toolbox. I would instead use a propane tank cover. We have several options and I have included a link to them for you. The toolbox can be...

  • Mounting Tool Box and Changing to Larger Tires on Lees-ure Lite Camper
  • You could potentially mount a trailer tongue toolbox like the White Buyers Products # 3371701679 to a pole tongue like what's on your Lees-ure Lite Camper but it's going to require some custom/fabricated brackets. You would need to first come up with a plate wide enough to support the toolbox base and then either bolt or weld it to the tongue. Honestly your best option to create some more cargo space for tools or other items would be to mount a small chest or even a cargo bag like the...

  • Comparing Material Thickness of MaxxTow Tool Boxes MT80350 & MT80349
  • The two Maxx Tow tool boxes you referenced, parts # MT80350 and # MT80349, are made of different gauge steel. Although neither is intended/rated for supporting a person's weight the heavier 14-gauge material of # MT80349 makes it more likely to stand up to rough use. The other toolbox # MT80350 uses lighter 19-gauge steel. Another difference is the hinges. Part # MT80349 uses one long piano hinge as compared to two smaller ones on MT80350.

  • Can Lid of MaxxTow MaxxHaul Trailer Tongue Toolbox Be Closed with Latch in Lock Position
  • I spoke with my contact at MaxxTow and was able to verify that the lid of the MaxxHaul Trailer Tongue Toolbox # MT80349 cannot be closed with the latch in the lock position. In order to close the lid, you will first need to unlock the latch. The toolbox can then be locked using the included key once the lid is closed. This is a really nice toolbox that features inside dimensions of 33 inches long, 14 inches wide, and 16 inches tall. I have attached a short video demonstration on this...

  • How Much Space is Needed Between Toolbox MT80350 and Trailer for the Lid Clearance
  • For MaxxTow MaxxHaul Trailer Tongue Toolbox # MT80350 I estimate at least 2 inches will suffice so that the lid can open.

I have linked a video of this toolbox for you.

  • How to Find the Tongue Weight of a Trailer
  • The MaxxTow MaxxHaul Trailer Tongue Toolbox w/ Flush Mount Latch part # MT80349 (50 lbs) does not come with a tongue weight scale nor do any of our toolboxes for that matter.

  • Storage Box Recommendation for the Tongue of a PWC Trailer
  • For a small lockable storage box for your PWC trailer I would recommend the DeeZee Toolbox part # DZDB-2600. The dimensions of this box are 24" long x 18" wide x 18" tall. Attaching it requires a little bit of creativity, the easiest way to do this would be to use U-bolts that are large enough to fit the tongue of your trailer. Email me back with the dimensions of your trailer tongue and I will see if we carry a U-bolt that would fit.

  • Is DeeZee # DZ91716 Trailer A-Frame Mounted Toolbox Strong Enough to Stand On

We offer another similar box from RC Industries, part # 350970 that's constructed of thicker aluminum tread plate (.072), but they don't recommend standing on it either. We do indeed ship to Canada.
