I hate trying to get through the RV lanes or other at truck stops. We carry 6 plastic 5 gallons cans, which fit perfectly across the bed behind the rear window. We have been doing it for 4 years, same cans no issues.

If it makes you feel safe . then by all means carry some extra . i have a gasser 36 gallon fuel tank and never felt a need to carry extra fuel . from montana to fl never an issue finding gas when needed . of course i have a TH with a fuel tank that i seem to always have 10 gallons in

We just took that route a few weeks ago. There are enough small towns I don't see the need. I was not looking for diesel but gas and have a 139 liter tank. They have had lots of weather this year but sections of washed out roads and shoulders have been rebuilt. Lots of trees down along the south shore of Superior before you get to Duluth.

Eagle cans look great, but round shape makes storage more difficult, i would think.

I'm familiar with us-2 in the UP, Last week construction at I 75, on us2 caused very limited access to gas stations on north side and restaurants on southside. I'm sure it will depend on time of day but if you fill up there you should have no problems reaching fuel supplies in Manistique, Rapid River, Escanaba with individual stations along the way. Don't wait or run empty to remote campgrounds.

Been carrying a 5gal can of fuel for over 20 years on every trip. I have used it many times over the years. A couple of times a 'neighbor' needed a little fuel, and they were glad that I had it. We plan all of our trips, but it has happened that late in the night and we wanted to keep traveling a little farther, it was good to know I had a little more fuel 'just in case'. Take it with you and make it a habit.

Sure wish the Garmin (760RV, I think) had the same feature that was on the Garmin I had on my motorcycle. I could set an alarm for XX number of miles as a reminder to get fuel. When the alarm went off it would show the nearest gas stations.
Now I often set an alarm on my IPhone for 2 hours as a reminder. In most places here in the states it is really not a problem finding diesel. But there are places in the mid-west where it can be 70-80 miles between fuel stations.

That's a good looking trailer.

But why no windows in it?
