I have tilted many of them. Never seen any fluid leakage. I agree with Sean that filling the fuel tank would not be the best idea.

Dirty Duck had a tilt trailer with 525's. How did they deal with the oil in that boat?

Do the tilt trailers have less width to them compared to an equal length v bottom trailer? I'm sure they're very stable around corners and such, otherwise they wouldn't make them, but they just appear to look narrow and top heavy with the boat being on it's side. I guess just looking at it makes me nervous with the whole center of gravity and balance thing...
