    Barker Tote Tank.

    How do you store/carry yours on the Reflections 5th wheels? I was going to try the ladder mount but the ladder is close to the side of the trailer and I don't want the tank to protrude past the rear of the trailer.

    I’m not familiar with that make/model. We keep ours in the bed of the truck.

    Don't hang from a ladder. They're not designed nor mounted for that. With our Solitude, I keep ours in the truck bed. On our last camper, I hung it under the camper on a cradle I made.

    What isn’t designed for it?
    The ladder or the tote?

    RV ladders. Additionally, the polyethylene used in a Barker is a good resin. However, it doesn't have carbon black in it for UV resistance, just an antioxidant package. Avoiding constant sunlight exposure will prolong its life.

    I am quite sure an rv ladder is and has been quite capable to carry totes

    Where I plan on putting my rhino tank

    I am certain it is not, but see no need to debate it. Pick any of the ladder manufacturers and ask them to put in writing their ladder is capable and warranted and you will have the answer from those you perceive to be the authority in the matter.

    You are correct debating is pointless but if it can handle my 220 plus it can handle a 40 lb tank

    Matt from Rv reviews goes up them and I won’t guess what he weighs

    I use a BAL tire carrier to carry my 32 gal Baker tote tank. Works well.

    Below is link to what I have used for several years with no problems on camper ladder. I use one racket strap and several strong bungee cords. This is permanent home for my tank; it keeps in handy but out of way and easy to use ladder when needed.
