Traveling with extra propane tank

Hey Gang,

I notice the Weber Q is a motorhome favorite. I was wondering how you guys carry the extra 20 pound propane tank? I thought it was unsafe to travel with it in a covered location.

I previously had a travel trailer so I would just tie the extra propane tank into the bed of the pickup.

How are you guys doing it?

Thanks !!!

It fits snugly into a milk crate and will not tip over or roll around.

There is also a base you can pick up at CW for about $10. The tank slides right in and is safe. It stays attached until you replace tank

I carry my tank in a milk crate in the toad and leave a window down a little.

Saw an older motorhome once in Florida that had a luggage type rack on top with 6 or 8 tanks tied up there. I thought, don't want to travel behind that traveling bomb.

So you guys put your tank into either a milk crate or this special CW hoohaa and stick the whole thing into a storage bay and close the door?

Obviously the tank will be turned off.

Another option to carrying an extra tank is Stay Flow Plus - Mr. Heater F273735 - Propane Hoses and Adapters - Camping World
that ties into your MH propane tank

I'm asking about transporting the extra propane tank b/c the MH I'm considering only has a 18 pound tank to begin with. Its not a boondocking rig for sure.

Are you sure it is a 18 pound tank? If it is a class A, the tank would be 18 gallons not pounds.

Search for 'tank foot' and you'll see what MC4Fun is talking about.
