I didn't think of those, I only have the cheeppoo plastic ones

They come with a yellow plastic funnel that slips over the spout and between the lid. they are around $45 but well worth the investment & they are much more durable than the plastic jugs.

The transfer tank is a great way to go if one has extra room in the bed of the truck (my bed is 11' so there is no problem there, the other thought is a metal frame mounted on the trailer enclosed with either expanded metal or heavy hog panels so there is full time ventilation. Hinged doors with good locks that make it usable from either side would be a good idea and could also give room for extra like oils, parts and line trimmers as well.
