Custom Made Generator Box For Our RV

The Generator Box

Generator Box in place with generator

Box closed, note vent/electric cord hatch on left side.

Close up of box, note exhaust hatch on right.

Generator fits just nicely.
The Generator Box for our fifth wheel trailer is now up and running.

We had it custom made by CR Metal Manufacturing LTD in Campbell River, BC. 

They really are true professionals and very accommodating and helpful. 

Like with anything that is custom built you should expect to pay extra.

CR Metal Manufacturing LTD did a super job, fantastic quality and exactly what I wanted. 

I dealt with Jeff and Randy and it's hard to find more helpful people. Enough said!

The Generator box I installed with Carriage bolts from below and self locking nuts on the inside. 

I have two tie-downs inside the box holding it down so it will not bounce around.

Further I made up a 10 ft long cord to reach from the generator to the plug-in on the trailer, just around the corner of the generator.

All works fine.

You may also want to read my post about how I extended the bumper on the trailer to accommodate the generator.



Added some lights and reflective tape to bumper.

  3. Some dentists run methods that appeal especially to kids. Mother and father must know that their dental surgeons are probably not the ideal in shape for young children and emergency dentists sarnia. A pediatric dental practitioner will usually have their workplace adorned in a manner that allows little ones to feel relaxed

  4. This means that generators are never safe to use indoors, including inside of open garages, and that during operation they should be located as far from residential units or buildings as possible.Bob
