Jenn, I removed the propane tub and sat it over a plastic campaign sign. Marked around the tub and cut it out. Silicone sealant to fix it to the tub and got a smaller metal real estate for sale sign for the tongue. I clamped it to the lower part of the tongue and marked it and cut to fit. I bent the rear edge up to meet the bottom of the tub floor. I pop riveted it to the lower frame. Placed another sign on the upper and marked it to fit the tub and frame. Leaving enough to lap over the sides about 1 inch. Cut and then cut the area in front of the tub for the piano hinge. Installed a cabinet latch to secure it to the tongue. Cut an area so the power cable can exit the lid. The cable and the cable for the back camera are both stored in the boxed in area. Sanded and painted all the parts. I put the letters on to keep some one from standing on it. Nice to have the space for the cables, tongue lock gloves etc. Using the plastic, somewhat like the under belly plastic and the light weight metal real estate sigh helps keep the weight down. every little bit of saved weight helps.
