    What is the best/legal way of securing 1 and 5 gallon gas cans to an open trailer

    We used to use a big two gal plastic kitty litter can that we cut in half and painted red. Then just screwed it to the trailer. After that, a black rubber bungee cord. Looked pretty good and held the can very secure.

    Vanguard, we have a camper top on the truck that we have and have the cans secured in the bed of the truck. Sorry. I promise, it really didn't look that bad.

    I'm thinking about adapting a metal box from a woodchip truck to lock my cans in on the front of my truck. it makes sense right? metal box, lock, totally secure, and safe to use, big enough to fit a 5 gal can or 4 in, plus a toolbox, and have room to spare.
