I'd worry about the strength of any wood box mounted on the exterior of my rig-to-be, you can only do so much with wood sheet goods in a structural design, especially a HANGING design. Joint design and construction would be critical, even with a good fibreglassing. I'd also worry about delamination of the glass with exposure to humidity.

Weld up a frame of angle iron and box it in with 3/4 treated plywood.

Check out my build thread for some ideas on basement storage. Not finished yet but you can easily see where I'm going with it. In the Skoolie conversion forum, my build is titled "Sojourner".
I am an sojourner in the earth; hide not Your Commandments from me. Psalm 119:19

Here is the patience of the saints; here are the ones keeping the commandments of YAHWEH, and the faith of Yahshua. Rev. 14:12
