I am putting the finishing touches on a project to replace the gas locker on the front of my 1988 Eriba Triton with a custom built box that will hold a gas bottle as well as the chocks and leveling blocks.
The old gas locker on mine was just a fiberglass shell that covers the stock twin 11 lb bottles common on European trailers. It was showing some age and starting to crack so I thought I could have a sheet metal shop build a custom box that could free up some storage room inside the trailer.
I used cardboard to mockup a design and took it to a local third generation sheet metal fabricator. For $250 I had a new box that will hold a twenty pound propane
bottle and all of the leveling blocks, the jack handle, and a few other supplies.
