When we picked up our trailer the owner of the business gave us a tour of the parts department and his custom fabrication center. He was telling us about requirements for storing fuel containers and propane containers they must incorporate when customizing trailers. All of the carriers were open in the main body of the trailer and the containers were strapped down.

I think you can carry the propane bottles in the trailer but may not be advised in the cabinet.

I think you assumed that part... the closet is well vented.. also propane is heaver than air

if you look at the top of the center cabinet ... you will see where it is lowered 6'' from the top and 6'' from the back wall ...= AIR INTAKE...

if you look at the bottom of the doors .. up 2'' x 48'' air VENTS....

I also install cross flow vents on the trailer box


also , thanks for the post...BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY!!

I noted in the video you spoke of storing the spare tire, floor jack and extra propane tank in the center cabinet, but did not see the air flow provisions you speak of. Should have known you had thought it out.

on the center cabinet I raised it up off the floor 1''..just in case I wanna put
stuff like propane tanks

my biggest fear, after watching a stacker trailer..and motorhome loaded burn to the ground is gas spill...I try to store the carried fuel past the axel in case of a leak it can't get to the hot brakes..or less chance...

kinda like gas motor homes... they almost always have rear fuel tanks. .incase they leak it just drip on the ground


and thanks for the posts...I'm doing this with out a plan so never know what I'll forget

You are doing a nice looking job! , like Mike stated, looks great with the Coach! As far as weight, there is the total weight of the trailer w/contains and depending on how it is loaded and how much the total weight is, you arrive at the trailer tongue weight..........suppose to be 10-15% of the total weight to tow properly.........I am not sure if you can achieve this with 3 axle's though, and the work area up front will help......?
