Gary, if you do a search, you will see that that has been used by a couple people here. I know Ian G used one in his Casita, and plans to use one in his Escape on order. I kind of like the idea too.

Do these boxes sit side-by-side, or do you stack them?

Nice - ETI has already done the drop-between-frame-rails floor in this case. I hadn't noticed that before. Since the frame is pretty high on a 21' I guess it still works for tank clearance.
