Chest Toolbox with a Roll-n-Lock

My dad just picked up a 2012 Superduty King Ranch 8' bed. He wants to do a chest box with some sort of Roll-n-Lock cover. Does anyone have a setup like this? truck will be used to pull a boat and a fifth wheel and he wants to be able to lock up stuff in the bed, but also needs a tool box. He doesnt want to have to slide his toolbox bck 14" from the front of the bed and lose all the space. Does anyone make a good come/setup for a in bed tool box with one of these covers. cant be a hard cover because of the fifth wheel.

thanks

Well yes I have that setup kind of LOL mine is a short bed and I don't need a 5th wheel hitch but I think this setup may work for him

I converted the weather guard chest to an electrical solenoid and it opens with a button on the remote

then I mounted the can for the roll and lock flush to the chest ( I access the chest so much
I choose not to cover it with the roll and lock)

then I cut down the R&L bed rails to fit


now I bought my R&L used and it was for a Long Bed ,, but I knew I was modifying and for 200 bucks I couldn't be picky LOL the can for the long bed is bigger than the shortbed so If He does this I think He could actually save room by using a short cover ,, I also have the chest slid back enough to have about 3 inches between the bed and box for quick stuff like garbage or wet clothes etc and I have drop in ladder racks so that worked out well for the front mount well

Maybe something like this 5th box in the bed? And then the roll and lock cover over it ?
