It does stand out about 1 - 1/2 inch from the body of the trailer. That was as far forward as I could go before I ran into the battery box. At that point the top opens fully, but needs to be held open.

2.) Did you have to raise it, or "step it up" in any way. I ask because it will be a bit wider than the configuration of the "A" of my trailer frame/tongue and I use a 2-bar WDH.
The box sits right on the frame. I don't use a WDH, so I can't really say how that would work. For my frame, the box fit very nicely, matching the angle of the A frame.

I have a couple of 2 inch round soffit vents in the back corners. I'll see if I can get a photo with the tanks removed.

Actually, the Line-X is on the outside to protect it from gravel etc. It is more difficult to clean since it is a rough surface, but it does protect the box.

I think it is a great option. It is the perfect location for things you don't want to put inside or items you use when setting up. Since I don't have a truck bed for those things, it is a great addition for those pulling with an SUV.
