We don’t utilize the propane or a battery on our trips, we usually use 30 amp hookup and site water at the sites we book so a lot of unused space there.
    We are pretty frugal and to save money I acquired an old bed frame for the angle iron and I had some expanded steel left over from a grill project last year. So off to work I went.
    These pictures are pretty self explanatory except for my decision to make it flip up.
    When I designed this I didn’t have the spare tire on the pup so I didn’t realize that the tire would not fit onto its mounting bolts with this tray there. So I made it so it could tip up by just removing the 2 back bolts. So here it is.

    Nice work....I grab every free bed frame I can for such projects. My utility trailer is largely built out of them.

    You can get a tongue box at Harbor Freight. They have two sizes.
