Junk in the Trunk

So one of the things we realized on the Lake Somerville trip is Le Tigre is tiny and lacking in storage.  This wasn't a revelation or anything.  We were already aware of it just not sure where or how to improve on the storage situation.  What we did discover is there's a bunch of stuff that doesn't need to be inside the camper at all, such as our camp grill, cooler, chairs, Kipper stuff, etc.  And then Craigslist said "let there be junk in the trunk".  Yes thru the magic of craigslist (once again) I picked up a used truck tool box and one of those receiver hitch tray things.  Of course, there was a minor snag when the tool box wouldn't fit the tray but it all worked out in the end.  I'll let the photos do the talking.

Right after the Lake Somerville trip I welded on a receiver hitch.

Been looking for these items and they both turned up on Craigslist yesterday!
Love Craigslist!

Bummer, they don't fit together.  Do I even need the tray part?

Nope!  Took the frame part off the tray, drilled holes in the toolbox, and voila!
Cleared the spare and the tailights but will need to move the license plate.
Kipper approves.

Shazam!  LeTigre's got junk in her trunk!
