I have enough room on my Ford F150 4x4 behind my FWC Hawk Camper to mount a SmittyBuilt Jerry Can holder.
My first thought is to mount it by bolting it through the bottom of the can holder directly to the bumper. I am thinking that I should not attach it to both the camper and the bumper, to avoid the stress that might occur if the camper flexed laterally in one direction while the truck's bumper might flex laterally in the opposite direction. The camper is bolted through the bed of the truck.
My second thought is to through bolt it to the camper, using backing plates, similar to the way my Batwing awning is attached.
I have a Front Runner 5 gallon Jerry can with a bottom spigot, which I use for water, so the SmittyBuilt was perfect to allow access to both the top fill and the bottom spigot without modifying it. I also have the FWC air conditioner, so using the jack brackets wasn't an option.
I would appreciate all thoughts on this.
