I was looking for advice on this is because a recent RVSEF weighing shows we are a couple hundred pounds heavier on the drivers side front when compared to the passenger side.
You may be able to fill the tank with Helium to take some weight off.

Attached are pictures. Used angle iron for rear support. The front side was a little more work since I framed around jacks. I had to weld the angle iron, then bolt to frame. Sheeted the whole bottom with 3/4 plywood, then covered bottom with fiberglass sheeting. Replumbed propane tank to right side with black iron pipe and added added a disconnect for the barbeque.

Thanks for the pictures KRAIG. Very helpful. At least I know it CAN and HAS been done before. I will post pictures after I tackle this project on mine in the near future. It's definitely something I want to follow through on... I could free up quite a bit of space if I converted mine and make room for such things as my extra water hose, air hose, emergency jumper cables, small propane bottle storage, etc.,

Our late friend Rick enclosed the area around his propane tank with steel mesh to create a storage area for things like a small propane tank for the BBQ, etc. Stuff that didn't need to be stored in an enclosed environment. Unfortunately I don't have his pictures of the modification. His coach was like ours with the propane heater and RV fridge, so he was not trying eliminate the big propane tank, just use the space around it.
