Let's presume you own a unusual travel trailer,
And the plain old propane bottle is parked in front like every other camper in the world.

What can be done to spruce up the look of your trailer?
The answer is simple, use some old Jerry Cans.

Step 1: Tools You'll Need

This project is fairly basic just about any metal cutting tool will do, I used a jig saw and a grinder with a thin blade to do most of the work.
I attached them with blind rivets.

Every year someone blows them self up by cutting or welding on gas tanks/cans, my cans had been dry for years you could not smell even a hint of fuel.
If yours do plan on an explosion if you don't rinse and clean all fuel from them.
<p>What I zoomed in on are your neat entry steps! How are those constructed?</p>
<p>I can't be the only person that immediately thought, &quot;where's the instructable for the rocket trailer?&quot;!!!</p><p>(Oh, and nice jerry can conversion)</p>
Count me on that list!
<p>I imagine this cocoon under a hughe balloon, soaring on the jet stream &amp; gettin' old... Awesome!!!</p>
<p>What a wonderous image you just painted!</p>
<p>Or at least a link to pictures! the trailer is awesome :-) I have been planing a nuclear bomb trailer, and would love to see more pics of your rocket ship!</p>
<p>check out rocket camper revealed, i'll update the interior shots.</p>
<p>2 years of long days no way I'm writing that book, there are quite a few pics under &quot;Rocket Camper Revealed&quot; I have since changed the name to Atomic.</p><p>thanks for the look and kind words</p>
<p>Nice cover and I would like to point out that you should NEVER smell fuel in Jerry Cans of that style because there were used for water, not fuel. I have a few cans like that myself and am waiting to get another Jeep to use them on...</p>
<p>I can't believe I have not seen this in my recents! Even though I am following you. This is brilliant (as usual from you) where are the after burners? The nearest earth like planet is only 16 light years away!</p>
