Rotopax Fuel and Water Cans

Saw these on a Jeep at Rausch Creek. Anyone have any experience with them? They seem like an awesome design and have better mounting options.

Jonathan, we had those on the snowmobile trailers, due to to be light and skinny, we mounted them all over the trailer walls.

We had 2 gallons dual packs ( 8 of them ), expensive for 32 gallons cost is 1200 ( or that is what I think we paid ).

I have seen them mounted laying on their sides 5 double packs so I guess 20 gallons

i saw these too and would ideally like a bracket so I could mount them on my mantec spare wheel carrier. The ATV forums say these are much better than koplin who have a similar central mount system.
