Default tool box slide

I am looking for a slide out so I can put my tool box on it. I have a sp36 and am looking to put it in the front cargo hold right behind the driver seat. This area is aprox 25" deep max. If you have a slide or can point me in a direction let me know. Thank you

What weight and travel are you designing for? I picked up some cheap ones at Home Depot that work pretty well for my smaller tool box.

FWIW. In an emergency...and in need of getting to the tools...while parked along the highway...the roadside slide out is going to be an issue. Just thinking...

The slides that I used are not as long in the fully extended position, so this only allows the lid to open up about 90% of the way, so I will make a simple support to hold it open as far as it will go, to access the tools under it, thanks again for the idea, this will be a great addition to my 'Bird.

Here are the parts that I used;

Tool Box purchased at Lowes Home Improvement, included a lower tool chest that I'm using in my shop, the pair were $99.95

A pair of Accuride Full-Extension drawer Slides W/O release 20" L, 20" L travel, 244 lb/Pr Load Rating, part #1277A83 purchased from McMaster-Carr $54.46 Plus tax and shipping. www.mcmaster.com

2"X2" Angle Iron I had here in the shop along with nuts, bolts and washers.

I agree with Curt. I didn't want the tool box stuck out on the traffic side at all. Installed my tool box in the right rear compartment with slides from Orr and Orr.

Also agree.

My tool box is on the curb rear compartment. You typically need your tools when you have an issue or breakdown. So when you're pulled over on the side of the road the the street side is not an ideal place to be.

The Curb side is good for things like that. Use the street side for things you'd need once parked. That way you don't disturb people under the awning in chairs, relaxing, etc...

There's more to this RV stuff than meets the eye.. You should see all the thought you have to put into plumbing when talking curb vs street.

Heres another option I didn't have a free compartment where a sliding toolbox would fit so bought one of these http://www.northerntool.com/shop/too...-_-1206-_-CONF and installed in the narrow compartment in front of my back wheels.

thanks guys. I never thought about the tool box being in traffic. I will have to reevaluate where to put the box

My coach came with an OEM tool box slide. (I think there was an OEM tool box, but it was long gone by the time I bought the coach.)

The OEM unit was built of simple angle iron, welded together. It held a "top" section of a standard Craftsman (or similar) tool cabinet.

The frame held the tool box in the forward rectangle, and had a smaller, second rectangle behind the tool box. In the OEM configuration, an electric BBQ had been above the tool box. The BBQ was long gone (though a pull-out tray remained behind).

I made the following modifications:

1. I removed the BBQ tray/slide. It was configured in a way that was of little use to me.

2. I moved the (gray-colored) shelf up a few inches so that a taller tool box would fit. I had to cut a slot in the right hand side to allow clearance for the door's pneumatic arm.

3. I installed a narrow shelf behind the tool box, selecting a size that would comfortably fit.

4. I built a wooden box for the rectangle behind the too box.

So, when the tool box was in place, I also had additional storage for various filters, oil, anti-freeze, and miscellaneous other bits and pieces. The 'behind the tool box' box was perfect for storing things that did not require frequent easy access. The tool box itself allowed me to carry a wide variety of tools, allowing me to perform minor repairs on the coach and toad. On the upper shelf, I carried a small tool box with electrical tools, that I could easily grab and move to a location where I was trouble-shooting an electrical problem.

(This compartment was on the curb side, so I would not be exposed to traffic, if I needed tools while parked along the side of a road.)

Same slide as mine, Pete. I didn't know if it was OEM or not, but my PO told me the coach came with an OEM Snap-on toolbox that he was keeping. I found another that is a close fit and still use the slide.
