Please vote: Open Storage Box (to hold generator) or Closed Storage Box (to hold tools)


Recommended Posts

Trying to decide which to get... 

I like the idea of more storage with the locked box, but having to remove the generator for every road trip is probably a pain too.   What do you prefer?

I'd add one more option, no basket. That's us. Everything we carry is in the truck bed or the trailer itself. Our tongue weight is pretty consistent that way.

The tow vehicle information is important.  (Another consideration  is, many people don't like to carry fuel or a genset in an suv. )

We've carried the same Yamaha 3000 watt generator over 150K miles on the front of two different Oliver's. Wouldn't have it any other way. Fuel goes into the generator tank. Fill it up when you get fuel for the truck.DSC_1095.thumb.JPG.002c9ca71788b5215ac103d273b80a10.JPG 1544955134_Steve-101-Img_1573-1.thumb.jpg.540470ce2fdc4d43df202f87907277dc.jpg

I have an aluminum box on the tongue to hold chocks, blocks, gloves, etc.  It has been very handy since it’s the first thing I open when we arrive on site.  The generator (when we take it) is in the bed of the truck.  We only use the generator to charge batteries when the solar can’t keep up so being in the bed is no big deal.  It’s also only 37 lbs so it is easy to lift.

Did you have that aluminum cover custom made? 

I got the aluminum box off of Amazon.  About $100.  It carries my heavy rubber chocks, wood blocks, 20 legos, gloves, flashlight and a couple of other items.  I never lock it.  It’s held up well the past few years.  For what I use it for it’s perfect.  Mike
