I mocked up a nose box out of cardboard and then took the mock-up to a local sheet metal fabricator. They built it for $300 including materials out of 16 gauge sheet metal.

I attached an aluminum to tongue box on mine. Cut out a bunch of vents and bolted it to the frame with a few beads of silicone between the frame and the box.

I am pleased so far with the results. I however have since swapped out the battery for an Optima D31M deep cell sealed battery that vents outside the box.

All propane lines are plumbed outside the box except connector.

Happy with it so far, used it one trip and a thousand miles. Still a work in progress.

For what it's worth, I spotted this on Craigslist... a fiberglass cargo box for sale (pre-owned), $200, in Bartlesville OK.

I did mine the cheap, easy and hidden way. I never use a lot of propane so I took one propane tank out and put a properly sized plastic garbage can from Walmart in its place. Total cost $3. The factory dual propane tank cover works fine for covering it up and the top lid screws down. I also used a 5" square plastic fence post and end caps zip tied to the front behind the propane tank cover for other storage such as sewer hose, fittings, gloves, etc... Been on there 25k miles or so - no problems. http://msg-15131-0-15008700-1479003923 -- sorry this link did not work - I cannot figure how to attach photos I guess.
