Battery Box Tool Box

March 2, 20156

One way to add an exterior tool box to your camper is by simply mounting an extra battery box. The solution is cheap, easy to install, and conveniently accessible.

Tool box on popup camper made from battery box

Here is mine, mounted right alongide the actual battery. Easy to open and close. I store wood blocks that are used to pad my stabilizer jacks.

There are quite a few battery box options available at Amazon, like this Group 24 size vented battery box for only $13.


Here is my completed setup with the tool box on the right, dual 12v batteries on the left, and dual propane (LP) tanks in front.

I've been camping regularly since I was a kid, from quick Cub/Boy Scout trips to week-long backpacking trips and everything else in-between. We got a popup camper when our kids were 1 and 3 years old to enjoy more time outdoors together alongside a few conveniences like heat and running water. Since then, we've spent over 75 nights together as a family in our popup camper. I've learned a lot about the intricacies of a popup tent camper during this time and love to share those lessons here for the benefit of others.
