    That's my exact current set up (even down to the 2017 250 XC). In the original post I mention that I'm not a fan of the UMX tray style hauler for a few reasons, but the gas can holder is one bright spot. Even still, that gas can holder sticks up just barely too high for me to be able to open the driver side rear door on my van which is the deal killer for me. I've settled on getting something along the lines of a versahauler and just adding a simple platform along the back that I can have my gas can sit on.

    (not sure why the image only wants to upload sideways, but you get it)

    Why not just strap a gas can on to the loading ramp after it is secured to the carrier?

    With no sides to hold it I would think vibration would have it moving around until,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,. And the shape of most gas containers is usually an issue also. No way I could trust that.

    Same issue, I don't like to put gas cans inside my SUV.

    Someone mentioned a roof rack which seems like a good idea. Maybe even a Rotopax mounted to one of the racks...
