Fuel Jugs for Trailer

a while back I saw a fuel jug rack that attached to the frame of the trailer in front of the box-between the box and the hitch. It also had a lockable bar that went through the 2 fuel jug handles to prevent theft. The locking bar is what all of the others are lacking.
I cant find these anywhere now.
Anyone have any ideas on where to look? Ive been to every trailer website Ive visited the past 6 months and cant find it.

Mike, I had mine made, but they are not the locking kind. Let me look for the link, the guy was VERY reasonable and custom made the can holders at no additional charge over his standard pricing.

Bummer, couldn't find the guy that did mine. Mine holds 12 5-gallon cans.


How about Front Runner from Equipt? It locks...

I dont think I need 5 fuel jugs. Im small time!

If I could buy a single jug rack I would. 5 gallons goes a long way in MX bikes. Im trying to envision how that would mount to the front frame or if I could use a filler hose with it?
$175 for 2 jugs and the locking rail with the one I found. Im sure its not the most rigid frame since its aluminum but should work OK for my use.
No?

You must be. We have 2 of those racks and still have 3-5 loose in the trailer, not including all the gas in the bikes. I think the record was 22 one weekend.
