When you’re traveling cross-country, the last thing that you want to have happen is to run out of fuel and be stranded on the side of the road, especially when you’re miles away from the gas station. So to prevent this from happening, turn to a portable fuel trailer. It’s ideal for use when you’re traveling the open road.
Tow a Fuel Trailer when Traveling
What makes a mobile fuel trailer a piece of equipment that is ideal for using when you’re traveling is because it gives you access to fuel whenever you might need it, whether it be in the morning, midday, or even the middle of the night. If you’re running low, you can simply pull off to a rest stop, gas up using the fuel stored in the tank on the trailer, and can get back on the road in just a matter of minutes. Really, it’s that easy.
Portable fuel trailers are available in various sizes. At Gas Trailer, the smallest sized gas tank trailer available is the Traveler 20 Manual (pictured above), which has a fuel storage capacity of 20 gallons. It’s a model that can be hauled behind any sized vehicle along with motorcycles, tricycles, or other non-full sized vehicles. So, if you’re traveling cross-country with your motorcycle group, you can take the Traveler 20 Manual with you to ensure that you always have fuel even in the most remote of locations.
Then, there are the mid-range fuel storage models as well as larger capacity fuel storage options to choose from. Currently, the best midsize gas trailer option is the Contractor 55 Manual that has a fuel capacity of 55 gallons. Just like the Traveler 20 Manual, it can be pulled behind any size vehicle including smaller cars and tricycles or larger bikes. As for the larger fuel storage gas trailers, there are currently four different models available and they include:
- Contractor 110 Manual
- Contractor 110 Deluxe
- Pro 110 Industrial
- Pro 110 Industrial FTS
Each has a 110 gallon fuel storage capacity and would be a good choice for pulling behind a truck, SUV, or RV. Now, there are subtle differences between the four models. For example, the Contractor 110 Deluxe, Pro Industrial, and Pro Industrial FTS models all come with an electric fuel pump. However, the Pro 110 Industrial FTS model actually features a fuel transfer system where the others do not. To easily look at all the choices, visit the our gas trailer functionality page.
In addition to the multiple sized gas trailers that are offered, a variety of options can be added to your fuel tank trailer to so you can customize the one you want to specifically match your fueling needs. Some of those options include:
- Lockable Security Fuel Cap
- Battery – Deep Cycle Marine RV
- Charger – Tender Maintainer
- Branded Badge Label Plates
- Multi-Directional Nozzle Swivel
- Double Wall Fuel Tank
- FTS Siphon Hose Kit
- Replacement Particulate Filter
- Replacement Water and Particulate Filter
- Aviation Rated Upgrade Package
At the end of the day, a fuel trailer is ideal for using when you’re traveling. It gives you peace of mind that you’ll never run out of fuel. Plus, what’s even better is that by always having access to fuel when you’re traveling, you don’t have to worry about planning out each one of your fuel stops and can instead enjoy being on the open road. So the next time you’re planning a trip and are making out a list of things that you need to do, make sure that purchasing a fuel trailer is at the top of the list!
