Outdoor enthusiasts and construction pros alike will find plenty of uses for these mountable storage tanks from Rotopax.

From potable water to spare fuel, the Rotopax is a convenient way to carry liquids outside a vehicle. The tank is able to withstand continual outdoor exposure, thanks to UV-resistant materials and stainless-steel components. It measures 15 inches long by 6.5 inches wide and sits 2.75 inches off the surface, with a 3/8-inch thick HDPE deck to stabilize the tank.

Tanks of various sizes are available for purchase on the Rotopax website.

When paired with two SeaSucker 6-inch Vacuum Mounts, the accessory does not require holes for mounting. Instead, the tank can be attached to any non-porous surface, such as the side of a truck or van.

The device quickly installs with a few pumps of the integrated power button. Unlike an industrial suction cup that can lose its holding strength, the SeaSucker secures 420 pounds – even over rough terrain and often for days on end, the company says.

SeaSucker mounts are predrilled for the installation of a Rotopax base. The SeaSucker RotopaX Tank Holder costs $149.
