    Anyone make up a cheap gas can holder?

    I mounted a plastic storage box on the front of the trailer where I used to bungee the 5 gal gas can to. I was thinking about making something up to mount of the back of the storage box. Anyone done this before? All the gas can holders Ive found are in the $150 range. Seems like a crazy amount of money for something like that.

    Try one of the aluminum Trailer hitch type racks.

    Those were still $125 or so. Ended up just wrapping a piece of pressure treated lumber and attaching with galvanized nuts and bolts and aluminum plywood capping.

    Looks like it will work. I bought my aluminum rack at Menards for $69. Same thing as the 125 ones.
