I have had mine not on my trailer but as said to transport tanks in back of truck for over 20 years and it is discolored and may be brittle but not to the point of it crumbling apart.
One could place some 3/4 plywood inside bottom of crate and u-bolt through this also and that would solve problems of it comeing off while in a high-speed-chase

Yea, it states there is a $5000 fine if you steal these but I asked the store manager and he gave it to me.

It's not his to give away. I give you permission to take my neighbor's Jaguar.

While I doubt you'll go to jail for stealing a milk crate, I do think we should encourage people to solve their problems in a less "Red Green" manner...

The tongue area is overlooked by a lot of people. There's a lot of room for creativity up there and with a trailer as small as a 13, there's lots of opportunity to equalize by storing stuff behind the axle to offset anything stored on the tongue. On my old 13, I built a rack that stored two batteries, the propane tank, a cooler, my grey water tank, and some firewood. A full water tank plus some camping chairs, tarp, and clothes for the weekend stored on top of and under the dinette offset the weight nicely. This was Rev.1. Later I added battery boxes, and a rack for the bbq.

My storage rack

I've built a new one for my 1700 but don't have pictures of it yet.

Ok. I took a picture one my way in to work this morning:

I had a spare hydraulic strut from one of my vehicles so decided it was the easiest way to support the bbq. The propane tank hold-downs aren't pictured there because they're in the garage freshly painted. They are just bars with slots cut to match with the ring on the top of the propane tank. The bolts push the bars down.
