Yes Dan, I took a truck tool box, mounted it to the back of my fifth wheel and installed my Honda 2000i in it. I cut a large fresh air intake on the back of the box, two smaller holes for exhaust fans, and another for the exhaust pipe. Then I wired an exterior outlet to the box. I can run it for hours with the lid closed. When the interior of the box reaches 90+ degrees, the twin exhaust fans kick on, drawing cool air over the genny from the cold air intake and removes the warm air in the box. Have been using this for a couple of years without problem. The genny is secured in the locked box with a metal strap and another security cable to keep honest people honest.

Alpenliter, that is a very nice, professional looking setup.

A number of us on the Montana forum have built racks for the rear end of our pickups. Here's a link to some pictures of my version http://s1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd467/DQDick/Truck%20Rack/ The thing on the right side in the canvass bag is our tripod stabilizer. The little propane tanks are for our grill. I just get a couple of bank canvass bags from the bank when they wear out, keeps my tool box and tailgate from being scratched.
