Okay; I sold my 16' trailer, and bought a 12' with a side gate. The side gate means that my racking system (Trailer Mate Pro by Jungle Jim) doesn't work. I am selling the rack,and have purchased a Grid Iron system by Novae. The system will hold 2 trimmers/stick edgers and one back pack blower. Has room for expansion as well. The only problem...no gas rack. I have 2 5-gal gas cans and 2 1-gal gascans I use on a regular basis. For the past two weeks, I've been placing them in my truck bed, but that seems to make them expand more from the heat (maybe I'm imagining it, but the cans definitely seem larger than they were on a racking system). I've been looking at Green Touch's Gas Can Racks for some time now, for about $100, I can lock down ONE 5-gal can, WHAT A RIP?! I've also been looking at Buyers' Gas Can Racks from NorthernTool . Com; they're wanting 50-60+shipping for a gas can rack that holds either 1 5-gal or 2-2.5 gal (I'm assuming I can place two 1-gal instead). So far, that is seeming to be the best deal. I've also considered getting a small amount of sheet metal and bolting it to the tounge on my trailer, (bolting because I do not know how to operate a welder, nor do I know anyone that can do it for me). Maybe I should go even cheaper and buy plexiglass? Maybe old basketball goal's backboards? Will the plastic/plexiglass material do anything to the gas cans? What about some plywood? With wood though, if ANY gas is spilt on it...it'll just suck it up...making the trailer more flamable than I'd like, hah . Do any of you have any recomendations? I'm trying to get this done before the weekend...so please, if you have any info/tips...post them!! Also, any pictures of your gas can set-up would be awesome!!!
