This is my first post, but I have been esdropping for some time. The idea that I have for a front box is to integrate it into the front wall. Construct it from plywood and inner lap the aluminum skin with the front aluminum sheeting. I will have a longer tongue to accommodate the box and still maintain my turning radius. One of the design features of my box will be to split the box. The lower compartment will be accessible from the sleeping compartment then the access will be through a hinged lid. I want to try to maintain some of the contour of the TD in the lid of the box.
I can store bulky linen, pillows or clothing on the inside and store things like folding chairs, battery, etc. from the outside.
This forum has been great in gaining ideas and creating some of my own.
I have been reading the forum starting from the oldest to the latest. So it is taking me awhile to catch up to what you guys are currently discussing.
But, in time I should be current and then I will really start asking questions.
