I figured it was a long shot, but man that would be useful. They get to keep my money and can let someone else use my tank, I don't have to mess with it until I need it. Win, win, WIN! All they have to do is set up a database to keep track of the accounts. They may be separate resellers, but I'd guess the overall company does keep track of the tank testing, refurbishing and such. I'd guess there is a decent amount of centralized infrastructure with each of the major brands.

I bet it could be done, it's just that only 0.1% of the customers have ever wanted it. Now that said, I'd bet at least 0.3% would use that service at some point if offered it!!

3. No rust. The tank stays nice and clean looking for its whole life. Also, the tank is translucent and white... So it matches the Scamp!
I hear ya on the tongue weight thing. I bent my first receiver! (it just wasn't made to tow a serious load, the Curt is much stronger)

Which tank exactly did you get? That matches the Scamp so well?
