As for stresses on the receiver; I plan to brace the receiver to the top of the bed where the holes are. The box will be fully fabricated and designed by me. I will throw up some pics of the ides when I get them completely drawn up. The whole unit will be hinged at the right side of the bumper so the whole thing will swing open and out of the way. Then the sides will be hinged and open up to reveal storage and my "kitchen". I will load all the heavy stuff on the carrier as far forward as possibly to minimize the lever effect produced by the 2' extension out of the hitch. Basically with all this, if I end up with the same fuel mileage i get now(as stock), when the whole unit is loaded and with all the add ons; I'll be happy.
