    Hey all,

    I'm doing a semi-crazy all-summer trip where I'm towing a travel trailer around the country.

    I'm adding a Honda EU3000is generator to the mix starting next weekend, and am looking for suggestions on how to keep it safe (and more importantly) secure in the bed while I travel.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for the best way to lock it in the bed?

    Is the TT up for sale after your trip around the world? I was going to suggest a cargo carrier added to the rear bumper of the TT with the generator locked down with a cable. You could also secure your gas cans with it. Safe travelling. You should update your location on TW as you travel, as well as your next location. :cool:

    Well...I picked up the trailer two weeks ago. I hadn't really considered selling it yet. ;)

    It currently doesn't have a rear bumper, but I think I like the idea of adding one along with a cargo carrier...and bike rack...and... :)

    Here are a couple shots of the interior.
