We carried one in a milk crate in the basement for years, no issues.
I did make sure the tank was never overfilled, milk crate was secure, valve thread port had a plug installed and removed a 6” round floor hatch cover near the milk crate for added ventilation.
I’m not recommending you should do this, but that’s what we did and never had a problem.
Final solution was to install a quick coupler tee’d in-line to the 1/2” black iron pipe in the rearmost curb side basement locker. One of the most useful coach mods we have done.

THAT is a good solution....propane is heavier then air
*Plug in threaded port just keeps the outlet clean
Relief Valve is on opposite end of Cylinder OPD outlet

We tow a RAM 1500 and keep the propane bottle in a milk crate in the bed of the truck, secured with bungee cords. Has worked well for us so far.
