Texas Propane

Travelling from Dalls to South Padre Island, where is the best/cheapest place to get propane? (To fill the LP tank on a 34' class A.)

Any places that give Good Sam discounts?

The best place is any Flying J truck stop in the RV Section. Their prices are fair and they handle MHs. The big problem is that the big propane tank is normall located by the RV gas pumps on the wrong side of the MH so you have to either drive around the car islands and go through the RV pumps going the oposite direction or back up to the tank. Some of the Flying Js have enough hose that they can reach the other side. There is a Flying J coming out of Dallas, one in Waco, a couple before Austin and one in San Antonio. The only other place would be at KOA campgrounds but Flying Js are cheaper.

Thanks for posting this question tulsacars and for the response Mike. Heading south to Big Bend in a couple months and need to fill tanks as well. Will check out Flying J. San Padre Island is an awesome place, be sure to check out the National Sea Shore.

Matt, you will love Big Bend especially at this time of the year. Nobody there. If you haven't been in that area before the consider visting old Fort Davis in Alpine, Texas. Also, No Country for Old Men was filmed in Marfa which is on the way to Big Bend, also filmed there was the old movie Giant with James Dean and Rock Hudson. That area between Marfa and Big Bend is absolutely deserted so there are no power lines or anything to get in the movies that they don't want.

Fort Davis is in Fort Davis, Texas, about 28 miles or so NW of Alpine. Consider a stay at Davis Mountains State Park - full RV hookups including 50 amp service and cable TV.

Star propane in Waco. I don't remember the price but it seemed reasonable. Take the 18 st exit off IH35 you can pullin on either side as their propane station is an island. Turn right as you exit Star and it takes you back to IH35
