Looks like good work.
I've seen some articles about cannons lately. Maybe from THC. You all done with them?
PM if you prefer.

I'm done with the Alamo cannon. Now I have some time to finally use my truck camper. It's been too long!

Don't know if they still do it, but they used to shoot cannons on weekends at Fort Ross.

Kayteg,
How do you haul your gasoline?
Putting it on the front cargo carrier appears to be the only option.
I cringe a bit at that thought.

Any body else? How do you haul a 5 gallon gas can if you aren't pulling a trailer?

I pulled factory generator and the compartment would fit 1 -5 gal and 1-2.5 easy.
Was even thinking about lowering compartment floor for fitting more cans, but with Honda efficiency that never was needed even in 115F weather.
For colder day - filling up generator tank was all needed as that would last for 4-5 days of using coffeemaker, microwave and charging.
If you don't have that option - I would not hesitate to stand 5 gal can on the bumper and rope it to the ladder.
That might by questionable by the law, but what isn't ?

Thanks for your contribution to Texas history! My ancestors missed the Alamo but made up for it at San Jacinto. My David Cole was one of the five that "captured" Santa Anna.

I mounted a RotoPax bracket on the rear bumper of my camper and carry 2 RotoPax gas cans. They are leakproof and locked onto the bracket.

I don't have a generator compartment.
Nor a rear bumper.
But I could add another cargo carrier to the rear hitch. I've done that before but it really makes getting in and out of the rear door an issue.

I guess the concern has to be someone running into you from the rear or me running into someone else in front.
Given those two choices, I think I would rather put my trust into my own driving rather than trusting the driving of someone else behind me.

I can't be one of the few people that ever thought about this.

If you have a ladder on the rear and deep pockets,RotoPax is the way to go...My rear compartment holds 2 gallon containers and I just wire the door open a little for venting..

Been playing with items I already had around the garage and came up with this Redneck way to carry gas..Hey,it works...That particular container fits in my rear side compartment.
