This one is 17" high and (I think) that's on the outside so, a standard 20# tank will not fit. 10# should.

Andrew,
The detailed description at the bottom of the link you quoted states: 18" high.

Quote directly from the link:

Measure your trailer before purchasing. Toolbox measures 36" wide across back, 18" wide across front, 19" deep and 17" high. Weighs 13 lbs. 7 cu ft capacity.

So, it's 18" wide (at front) but, not that high and these are outside dimensions. Than again, other than the colour, I think that it is a virtual copy of the one from TSC so, the smaller tanks should fit.

Andrew,
If I get the time before bolerama, I'll try to see if a 20# tank will fit into mine. It looks very similar and I got it from Princess Auto. Made by "Buyers" if I recall.

Or if you are ever in the 400/401 area, you can pop by and see mine. I would not mind meeting you to talk about photography, GPS's and wiring harnesses.

Joy A. here....

I couldn't find a pre-made tongue box that was tall enough for a standard 20lb/5 gallon propane tank, also the tongue on a 13 footer is shorter than the 16/17 footers. I contemplated going with a smaller shorter tank but then I thought about dry camping in the cold climates. I'd be using the propane for not just the stove and fridge but also the furnace.

My generator/propane box is roughly 39 inches wide in the back and 31 inches wide in the front by 15 inches deep. It's roughly 21 inches high to accomodate a standard 20lb/5 gallon propane tank. The box on the side is removable and is an exhaust diverter. Oh, and I lined the generator box and divertor with that window bubble wrap sun shade. Used 3M spray on glue to adhere it.

I can't seem to locate the sales tag for the diamond plate I used and the tray that the welder fabricated for me. But as I recall it was in excess of $300 closer to $400. Aluminum diamond plate is very pricey.

Heavy but OK. I had it weighed at the Oregon gathering 2 years ago. I'm just within the weight ratio for the tongue.
