Not sure what to make the box out of for my trailer
Should I go plywood or tongue and groove
My plan right now is to use stained pine tongue and groove with 2x2 angle iron corners for support with a 3/4' plywood floor and a 1/2' plywood lid
Would like it to be mostly waterproof 
And pictures or suggestions

Quality plywood, properly sealed, would be very strong.

Yep, sealed quality plywood is the way to go
