For people towing with a Suburban, Expedition or Excursion carrying fuel in Rotopax containers mounted to the outside of the vehicle (or mounted to the outside of the trailer) seems like a good solution. I've been using Rotopax to store fuel in the bed of my pickup for 2 years without a leak. They are expensive but are extremely tough and well made.

Some of the Rubbermaid Action Packer cargo boxes are large enough to contain the generator for safe transport on top of the tow vehicle (or inside the tow vehicle with the generator gasoline tank empty). Here is a link to the Rubbermaid website showing the complete line of action packers:

Personally I won't carry the generator or gasoline inside the cab of the tow vehicle or inside the trailer. I do know people who do. My generator and fuel containers travel in the bed of my pickup.

carry your gas in European jerry cans! they don't leak even when turned on there sides or back or tops! absolutely leak proof. stay away from American style gas cans! they leak unless stored upright. I haveused European (german jerry cans) for years and never has any issues with them. havehauled 12 0f them to Alaska and all over the u.s. with no problems.
for better results try to go to a small local airstrip and get 100 ll (low lead ) aviation gas. never spoiles or gums up and no ethanol (corn juice ) to eat up your gaskets etc.
just don't use it in your vehicle that has catalatic converters! unless you want to replace the converters!!!!!!

How about a front mount hitch and a cargo carrier mounted in it? etrailer.com carries a full line of front mount hitches. You can also buy a generator security box that mounts into a hitch. I use a cargo rack and a security box with the help of a double hitch receiver.

I've carried a Honda EU2000 in double plastic bags inside a large Coleman cooler in the back of my Club Wagon for over 15 years. Have never smelled gas. My Honda is an early model with the closing vent on the gas cap. I understand the new ones no longer have them but believe I've read here about purchasing the older style.
I carry two 1 gallon plastic gas cans of fuel in the factory box on the A frame of the trailer behind the propane tanks. Never a problem with it, except the time the van ran out of gas in nowhere Nebraska. Those 2 gallons got us to a gas station. Worst outcome is my family will never let me forget it!

This may just me, but after my roll over accident in August, I can't imagine having a generator or full gas can in any position in the SUV or Airstream.

Can't argue with that. In a rollover, all bets are off, and everything in your tow vehicle or trailer will try to kill you. But a proper DOT-approved fuel can, inside proper secondary containment, is not a whole lot more hazardous than your tow vehicle's own fuel system in such a case.

Pro, couldn't agree more. The generator and gas container should be as secure as possible during travel.
