Storage boxes under bus

Hi Everyone I'm looking for some good pics and how-to's on how to build storage underneath the bus.

So-far I found one idea from Damit Andy bus site.
But I'm looking for other ideas as well

You can buy pre-fab boxes ("truck boxes") or make your own.

We did our propane tank storage like this. I tested it by scrunching my 190-lb self partially into the box -- no, I didn't fit but the box did take all of my weight without protest.

I think wood box construction with metal frame/support/bracing works. Others go with sheet metal box/metal frame.

You may be able to find truck boxes used or at a salvage yard.

Best of luck--

Sean
