I purchased two Manchester 11lb half height propane tanks to go on each side of the trailer. I painted the top handle area Rustoleum Sail Blue. I sewed two blue ripstop nylon bags with a cord lock drawstring secured to the tank. These are to protect the valves from dust, dirt and mud.
The bottom of each tank has a rubber tank tire installed. This will reduce vibration and noise. A large trimmed rubber stopper is used under the back lip of the tank and bolted to the trailer chassis. This serves to prevent the base from slipping out of position.
I also purchased two 4B's Bracket Bu Th-112 Tank Holder (344-TH-112) to mount the tanks to the trailer after a slight modification to the bracket mount.

I purchased the optional removable sink for the trailer from AT Overland. The sink and drain hose gets stored in the nose box. I put the drain hose in a collapsible bucket that can be dumped away from camp when full.
Water Tank and Extra Water Containers
The on board water tank on the trailer holds 19 gallons of potable water. There is a manual galley style faucet (Valterra RP800 Chrome Rocket Hand Pump) installed on the kitchen side.
To provide extra water as well as container that can be used for filling up the larger tank I added two Dinuba stainless steel 5 gallon jerry cans for potable water.

I took a stainless steel paper towel holder and bolted 4 high strength magnets to the back so it could be attached to exterior of the trailer when used. The magnets were covered with a thin felt to prevent scratching. I used cap nuts on the paper towel side to give it a smooth finish. I sewed a blue rip stop nylon bag. When in use the bag can be pushed back or an be left open covering the towels so the wind does not unravel them. For storage the bag can be cinched up with the cord and toggle to keep the paper towels clean.
