Rotopax Slides Into Mount Four Wheel Camper

I’m an overlander and needed additional fuel storage, so I made a rack to hold two four gallon Rotopax.

In the pictures, you can see that I have two four gallon Rotopax that slide into an aluminum bracket.

The brackets were attached to the jack brackets and no holes were drilled into the camper. The dimensions are 4.5 inches wide by 20 inches high and 79 inches long.

A solid aluminum rod with a padlock on the top secures the gas cans in the bracket to deter theft.

The camper is loaded all the way to the front against its bump stops and has plenty of room between the Rotopax brackets and the cab.

I purchased the 2 1/2 inch angle, 3/4 inch rod, and 3/16 inch flat plate aluminum from a company called Patton Steel in San Bernardino, California.

So far this modification has been great! It’s nice knowing I’ve got it if needed.

It took me eight hours to complete this modification.  The total cost of the project is approximately $350. That is for the materials and the purchase of two of the Rotopax.  In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is extremely hard.
