Tom, hate to contradict you on this but your statement seems a bit incorrect. Smelling fumes from the tank of a genny does not necessarily mean the genny has something wrong with it.
I have a 4000 Gen that I carry and it vents fumes something aweful. I cant carry it in my SUV as it would gas us out in a few hours and carrying it in the TT would just make setting up at our destination a nasty experience.
The reason it vents fumes is two fold. One the gas cap has a small vent feature built into the cap so it wont pull a suction when the gas is being depleted. Two when you go from 500 foot sea level to over 6500 foot sea level your gonna get a bit of a pressure change, guess what happens to the fumes in your tank when that happens....yep they want to escape and ruin your trip.
As to the original question. I would love to hear from anyone that has succesfully carried a 100 lbs on their TT rear end and what the solution used was. Pictures would even be better.
I have a 2007 25RKS so the storage is under the bed in the front and opens up to the inside...hence the fumes in the TT.
