    Looking for suggestions for fuel storeage in my enclosed trailer. I have seen the aluminum storage racks on ebay for around $65 shipped. Fuel is to expensive to tip over spill. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Put an aluminum box on the tongue preferably one with a rubber seal around the doors edge as well as a locking mechanism.

    By DOT standards it is illegal to transport gasoline of any quantity inside an enclosed trailer. I think open trailers can have 10 gallons worth on them in cans and whatever in the equipment. Not 100% sure about the open trailers but enclosed is correct...
