Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheRealElbadoo Ideal storage box for a PWC trailer!
I installed this on a tandem PWC trailer to hold life jackets, tie-down straps, and other assorted accessories. Made of heavy-duty - but still lightweight - molded plastic, I don't have to worry about it rusting over what I'm sure will be a long lifetime.
The bottom is water-tight (except where I drilled it for mounting, but a washer and a little caulk takes care of that) so I don't have to worry if I back the trailer in a bit too far and the lower couple of inches of the box are in the water. The lid has an over-hanging lip that keeps rainwater from leaking in. I've driven with it in the rain some and haven't seen any water leakage, but if I ever do a little weatherstripping should take care of that.
Check out the included picture to see how I mounted it: I created a walk-about platform with synthetic decking (with some added support lumber where necessary) and then mounted the storage box on top. I used stainless steel fasteners and washers throughout to keep everything from rusting.
As mentioned in the Home Depot "Product Overview" - and contrary to the "Details" section - this storage box *does* have a hasp for a padlock, so I can feel confident that my extra life jackets are secure when I'm out on the water.
I am extremely pleased with my purchase. It was a great price, looks like it'll last forever, fits my trailer perfectly, and holds all my stuff! What more could I ask for?
