You can't do that! Think of something creative to offset the load you've got on the left side!

Looking Good. What's the thickness of the tank walls? I have a 250 gal. also but haven't cut it yet so not sure how thick it is. Yours looks like 1/4". I'll be watching this one.

I'm considering doing the same thing, but was going to go with a 500 gallon tank. The 250 looks to be big enough though. What are your dimensions of the trailer?
