Default Propane tank holder ideas

I'm looking for ideas to add a propane tank mount to my Slee bumper. Ideally I'd like to be able to fit both the bike rack on the spare tire carrier as well as a propane tank. The standard bbq 20lb tank looks like it'd be a challenge to fit so I'm considering a 10lb size tank.

I've found a couple of brackets that might work but they are kinda wimpy. I prefer something that will securely retain the tank when bumping along on a rocky trail. The Vanagon pic shows a 10lb tank.

I have a lil 5# propane tank that is easy to secure just about anywhere. It's usually enough gas to do all the cooking for two people for about 3 weeks.

Or, how about this?

A 10-20lb Powertank bracket would probably work too....but they make a bracket specifically for propane.

Milk crate and a bungee cord.


kidding of course. Welding bottle tank holders are another option.

I was doing some looking around the other day for mounts. I toyed with the idea of my Powertank and/or an LPG tank mounted on the bumper or swing out.

Curious to know what you decide to do.

I'd also consider a tank you can permanently mount under the vehicle.

Hey Bruce I just ordered a couple brackets for this, going to attempt to add a 20# propane tank to my swing-out coffee table..

I ordered this one http://www.amazon.com/Th-112-4BS-Bra...d_sim_sbs_hi_3


And I ordered this one http://www.amazon.com/Propane-Crawle...d_sim_sbs_hi_1



Why two? Well, the one that seems to work the best is going on the 100, the other one I'll make work on the camper, as I still need to make that happen.. I will post up when/if I get something here.

Adventure trailer makes one from a pelican case mount that is VERY slick and rock solid, but it looks like you've got it under control.
