I agree if all you are talking about is price.No offense here, ;;s;; but these containers & the Koplins, are pretty darn pricey for carrying 2 to 4 gals of fuel for your ATV.
I can get two 2 1/2 gal plastic cans for about $10. Then I can use the other $80 to fill them & the bike up.
I know some feel these are easier to pack, take up less room, etc. But really, you lay them flat on your rack, & put stuff on top of them. Then you have to remove it to get to the fuel ??
If a guy uses the Koplin brkts & attaches the containers that way, it may be flatter ... but it's still pretty pricey.
A guy can either make or buy a gas can carrier (I've seen them at Polaris & Yamaha dealerships) ... & the carrier can also be used to carry one gas can & a cooler if wanted.
I'm sure some out there will totally disagree with me .... but personally, there are less expensive ways of haul'in fuel. But, to each his own, right !!?? ..... RIGHT !!! :icon_thumright:
ccasion14: I agree... when I bought my original set of Kolpin I didnt know the Rotopax existed, that is if they did.. I like both products even though I dont have any Rotopax yet..I have the new Rotopax fuel cells for when I go on extended trails.
Yes it cost money for these,but the quality and flexability is great and as desertrat said the multi use is priority.
These unit's were with me on the Paiute Trail when I crashed
and there was damage,but far less then exspected. With the fact that they are two
seperate cells I will only need to replace one. I like the set up and feel that they were worth the money spent. It's easyer for me to lift 2gals then the whole 4,and
the spout set up makes pouring quick and easy. Stacking is no problem and with the use of the old brackets versital. When I spoke with Jason he said they would be developing a bracket of there own for the rotopax. Outdoor products is the original'
designer of the koplin before selling it. I will pay that little extra money to Jason and his family business with no hessitation because the quality is BARE NONE. JMO
The last picture is of the only damage done to the PAX
Hmmm,, now u got me a thinkin... I wonder how much water that trailer would hold? I could take a bath in the field.... ;;s;;Water ... so you wash you're face & hands huh ?? .... Interesting ! :notworthy:
But, do you realize how much you've spent on "Containers" ?? Even at $90 each ... I think you have six containers .... Jeez, for a tad more .... ya could've bought that ATV trailer .... I know, I know .... you don't wanta tow a trailer all the time. But like I said, "That's Pretty Darn Pricey" ... But hey, it works for you & YOU, are the only one you have to please ... Right ?? ... RIGHT !!! :icon_thumleft:
