Nice job. Looks like a nice way to get some extra capacity.

Kilroy, how has your Rotopax mount worked out? Now that you've had it installed for several months can you post an update on your install?

Thanks for the follow-up report.  I love the simplicity and the fact no new holes are required to be drilled.  Thanks for sharing and documenting.

It's already been done.  2 weeks after I bought my FWC, a camper in Sacramento came up for sale and it had one of the smaller Rotopax cans mounted to the passenger side front.  That was the first time I had seen a Rotopax. 

 

Thanks for the write up.  A little can would be great for saw gas.

Just saying I saw someone install one on a metal sided FWC.  I'm seriously thinking about this on mine.  I'd probably install it on the otherside.  I don't need extra fuel for the truck (at least I don't think I do) but some saw gas would be nice or maybe for a generator I'm thinking about.  Just not sure yet as I'm still trying to figure it out and don't have enough nights in mine yet. 

 

I wish I had save the photo's but didn't.  Honestly, I was a little miffed since that camper had everything I wanted and was less money than the one I bought 2 weeks earlier....such is life.  :)
