The tank clamp / bracket worked as designed plus the PVC is light in weigh and does not rust . Our original Scamp did not have a furnace so we traveled with one propane tank . Our present Casita has a furnace so we use both tanks.

Great solution but it might cost more than the second tank if you have to buy the pipe.

Like most people , I always have a few length of various size
PVC ( 3/4" to 8" ) pipe lying around the house along with a collection of PVC pipe fittings , plus cleaner & cement . I used the tank off my Scamp as a spare for my gas grill .
