2air, that was most illuminating.

I have been using the gray box on the top of the stack in post #23 with no mods.
I have been bungee-ing it closed.

I am now in search of the most excellent "locking lid" box #2 in the middle of the stack.
I do hope Monty is available to help me in my search for the holy grail of storage boxes.

My genny thanks you. Clippity clop.

Bam....I was unable to find the Rubbermaid ActionPacker Storage Box #1172 in any of the stores in our area. Found that the best deal on the internet was Amazon.com who sells it for $37.23 with free shipping. I also found it at Target's online-only store for $27.99 but they would hit me for $21.71 addiitional for tax and shipping to NJ.

What about buying an open bed pick up. NO worries about smell then.

Have you tried Wally-World, our local store had a space for them but were out of stock. Seems they had a run on them recently, gee wonder why..

These excellent containers are at Walmart for $24.88. The new EU2000i Companion (with the parallel kit built in) has exactly the same dimensions as the EU2000i -- 20.2" X 11.4" X 16.7" -- so the containers continue to work with the new generation of generators. And they are proudly marked "Made in the USA."

Thanks 2air for saving me from three generations of sub-optimum plastic storage. My new Eu2000 is nestled snugly in the 24 gal Action Packer --nice green and tan ones from Academy Sports. It is hermetically sealed with foam tape.
I note that there still is room in the box for one of these Rotopax gas containers -- the flat ones that are designed for ATVs. It seems the one or two gallon would slip neatly in the Action Packer. Any thoughts?

thanks all for bumping this thread and finding the info useful.

nice find sage' i have not seen that petrol holder.

at just 3 inches thick it SHOULD fit, maybe.

that would be a great addition if it does.

cheers

Great stuff - ordering my "Honda Genny" now - and was wondering how to store it during transport - guess I wonder no more...

BTW - don't know if I would recommend an extra 90 pounds of a 2000i sitting on the tongue of anyone's trailer - don't these folks ever go to the scales?

rotopax one gallon container

Having heard no objections I so ordered the RotoPax one gallon gas can. It arrived today. Seems sturdy--I'd guess 3 or four times thicker than your usual plastic gas can. It fits quite easily beside the generator in the 24 quart Action Packer. A second one or a two gallon would fit.

Threads on cap are huge so it seems to seal well. I comes with the fussy new "no vent" pour spout which fits inside. I don't think it will spill any fuel, but no matter - you will already have it all over your hands from fishing the spout out and installing it.

I wasn't smart enough to think of this earlier, but their mounting systems might easily be rigged to the back of the propane tank cover (using a backer plate inside the tank cover).
