Any negatives on a Titan Trekker top fill with a pump?

Any issues with the quality of RDS aluminum? It seems simpler to install.

On the Titan, it is my understanding that you fill the main tank 5g at a time and that can take 20-30min. That could mean filling two tanks at the pump. Any work around?

I am leaning towards the Titan because it gives me more bed space and I can carry two bikes upright on my bed. I am just concerned about the process of filing the main tank.

I just got a ATI-TTR51, I wanted to take up as little space as possible. It is bolted in but not hooked up yet. It takes about 9.5” of bed length but is still 51 gallons.

That is a really nice choice. I just wanted to get something to keep under a cover since I usually carry other stuff on the bed. I had to give up bed space for that. It is all about tradeoffs :-)

It went with a Titan replacement tank on my ford diesel f350. I went from a 35 gallon to a 55 gallon.

It took me about 4 hours - and 2 hours of that was trying ot figure out how to remove the quick connect fittings on the old tank and waiting on a return call from titan.

I eventually did a youtube search, figured it out and was on my way.

To their credit, Titan called back in 90 minutes (I just happened to call during the lunch of the tech support guy).

I looked at the in tank versus the replacement and I just don't have the space in my shortbed for a in tank so went with the Titan.

I choose Titan over S&B because at the time S&B had a problem with tanks leaking after they were installed and two local dealers refused to sell them.

I have a 40 gallon aluminum tank in my bed. No issues.
