A "5 gallon" LP tank is roughly a 20 lb tank, the common BBQ grill size. That weighs about 37-40 lbs when full, so its not gonna tax your GAWR much more. We always used a 10 lb bottle anyway, since it is easier to move around and store, so that's only about 20# when full.

We used our fire pit on the coach LP system for one season and decided that was a nuisance. First we bought one extension hose. Then another to get more location flexibility. Then the damn hoses were strung across the campsite, ripe for tripping upon, snagging chair legs, etc. Went to the 20# bottle to get rid of the long hoses, then bought the 10# for even greater convenience. But your mileage may vary...
