I'm looking for a tongue mounted toolbox for my Gatormade car hauler. I looked at the toolbox that Gatormade sells where I bought my trailer and wasn't impressed. It was warped and the lid stuck and this one was inside the shop. I can't imagine what sitting in the sun would do to it. My use for it is storage just while towing, not long term/secure storage. I'll use it maybe a dozen times a year, so I'm looking for something affordable (you might even say cheap :) )

I believe that the Gatormade box is made by DeeZee, which I didn't like:
Amazon.com: Dee Zee DZ91717P Poly Triangle Trailer Box: Automotive
Or maybe it's this one:

I went to look at this one. They were out of stock, but I could order it:
2-3/4 cu. ft. Steel Trailer Tongue Box

This aluminum box has good reviews:
Amazon.com: Best Choice Products® Aluminum Trailer Tongue Tool Box Horse Jet Ski Boat Rv Truck ATV Heavy Duty Box: Automotive

The Northern version looks better:

Does anyone have any suggestions before I start running all over town?

Personally, I don't think I would go with a black poly on one that's going to set out in the sun a lot.

I'd go with Northern Tool metal box because you can probably get it today. I don't like waiting.
