    Yeah, placed an order on Sunday evening. Had shipping confirmation by 9:45am on Monday. And they ADV discount code worked.

    No real complaints from me.

    I wasn't bashing. Just stating my experience.
    The discount code wasn't working for me and they never responded to my e-mails.
    Which I guess is a good thing.
    I ended up finding the RotoPax stuff cheaper elsewhere, and even got a 15% discount and free shipping from that same place.
    My recommendation is to shop around and avoid the actual RotoPax web sight if you really want this stuff at a cheaper price.
    That's what I did.

    Never had a problem dealing with Jason at RotoPax.

    He actually exchanged 2 2-gallon RotoPax that I'd purchased for ones without spouts...no questions asked.

    Later...order a 1-gallon RotoPax from them. No problems, again.

    YMMV.

    Do a google search for coupon codes for them.
    That's how I got my discount.

    Rotopax site down? I tried to go there today and got nothing but errors. Is it me, or them?

    I just checked and it seems to have some sort of error.
    So yeah, the RotoPax sight is down.

    Hey!

    Would someone be so kind and provide me with the measurements on the picture please. I am making a luggage rack for my bike and would like to have the holes ready for when I get the Rotopax.

    A= 2" and 3/4"
    B= 2" and 3/16"
    C= 2" and 9/16"

    Sorry. I don't have a metric ruler. But these measurements are extremely close.
    They might be a hair off.

    A= 4/16"
    B= 5/16"
    C= 6/16"

    Again, these are rough measurements.

    Went to RotoPax website, registered, registration was confirmed, signed in, put 1.75 gallon and T handle in cart, typed "advrider" in for code and it was rejected.

    Not once, but several times. Emailed and was informed there will be no discount for months to come. Boohoo. :(

    I warned about those guys many months ago after a bizarre experience just like yours. The product is great ... but this vendor in Utah is not on the level. STAY AWAY. Buy yours someplace else.

    My experience was not bizarre. The person I corresponded with just simply stated they had stopped honoring the "advrider" discount code.

    In the past, their discounts have varied from 10-20%. Perhaps if their sales slow, they will reintroduce an "advrider" discount?

    I live in hope.

    Try going here http://www.4wd.com/ and looking for what you want.
    And before you check out, do a Google search for a coupon code there.
    I saved more money on that web sight than if I had gone direct with RotoPax with an ADV discount.

    Did not find any online discount coupons, BUT with PRICE MATCHING and FREE SHIPPING 4WD price would be the lowest price:

    $54.95 for 1.75 gallon on RotoPax site, $64.99 on 4WD site
    $16.99 for DLX T-Handle (Base Not Included)
    $00.00 shipping
    --------
    $71.94 is way better than RotoPax website price + shipping

    I'll follow up to confirm 4WD can price match.

    Thank you.
