Can you guys see any drawbacks to having the floor one piece soild hanging from the frame and encompassing all bays?

It's a lot of weight and a lot of bulk. Pretty much like having to haul around 2 frames. Why would you need a floor underneath a drybox or a cooler that hang from the frame?

It does a good job of making cooler and dry box super solid to stand and sit on, and mine goes past both to support rocket boxes. Plus I'm kinda weird.

Thoughts please.

You planning on a motor, too? In anything human powered, light is right.
