Storage Box on Bumper

Was thinking of installing a light weight storage box on the rear bumper. I am aware of the weight restictions and do not plan on putting anything heavy in there. In addition to installing brackets on the bumper (aluminimum tubing) I was also considering screwing the back of the storage box to the back wall of the camper to eliminate any flexing that may occur. I did notice when I removed the fresh water hatch that the plywood back there is not very thick, 3/8" maybe. Not sure if I'll be able to find any studs. Don't wont to rip the back wall off!

Any thoughts or has any else already done this?

You can do what I did for the bike rack. Screw 2 eyebolts into the rubber trim that covers the corners. There is about a 1 x 1.5" alum corner behind it. I attach a rachet strap to them to stop bikes from bouncing.
Other way is to go under the frame to add brackets which will allow the box to stay on its own.

It was a rainy few days at Algonquin Prov park...tarps kept us dry.

Guess it's ok to bolt a Lippert product to the frame without voiding the warranty, wonder why that is?
