I think I posted this in the wrong spot so am reposting here.

I bought my 16" Scamp with one of these boxes already installed. Didn't realize how much I liked it till I saw how much stuff it held. I keep my hoses, blocks, wheel chocks, chairs and etc. I also built a swing up shelf so getting the gas tank out is easy. If you're interested their web address is http://www.cheyennem...E_CATALOG_4.jpg. I have some pics of my boc and shelves but can't get them to post here. If your interested in seeing them just email me at redding96001@hotmail.com and I'll pass them on to you. If you call Cheyenne ask for Kim and please tell her Steve from Redding told you about these. They're great large, strong and lightweight.

I haven't seen these before, it's nice that the box is fiberglass. Your link is a .jpg so didn't work. Which one of these Dock Boxes do you have?

I just received the catalog and price.

There is two sizes and they are $309.
It looks like they have a front to back divider in the middle of the box and to fit, the propane bottles would have to be mounted inside. If I went this route, I would use only one bottle and use the free space for stuff. This would conserve the tongue weight.

Maybe, one of you Casita owners in Vancouver or Portland would be kind enough to run up to Battleground take a look and give the rest of us a report.

Thanks for sharing this ideal with us. It sure would be less weight than the diamond plated boxes. Also appreciate the ideal of only taking one gas tank. I just never thought about that and it sure would save weight. I seem to keep learning more each day from all you valuable Casita owners. Thanks again for sharing so many great ideals and suggestion.
