Oooooo, keep us updated. I hated selling my tank, but it was just way too big and would have had nowhere to store it once it was put on the trailer. Sure would like to see some pics if ya got em.

Very sharp! I would love to have a small trailer mounted rig.

Not implying yours is small, just meant I would like a smaller one.

Water and soap are cheap compared to the fatal alternative

Thanks for the compliments guys. Just something an ol country boy on a budget threw together on a spur of the moment cause what I had wasnt big enough for a couple of local venues.

Ive seen some pretty sweet rigs on these forums that makes mine look like scrap iron

Still need to incorporate my Discadia and a Santa Maria style grill that will nest into the storage/wood box.
