So Norm, do you think all the other trailer manufacturers who are offering propane must be paying exorbitant insurance rates but are willing to do so in order to offer propane as an option? Pricing doesnt seem to reflect a huge difference in insurance premiums. Just curios how the other manufacturers are handling the liablity issue or if they are grandfathered in at lower rates or if there is another loophole etc.
I admit to not knowing why propane is discouraged or not offered in some trailers. The safety record of propane is excellent as good or better than any fuel source including electricity.
If you're trailer doesn't have propane than you are probably carrying generator
gasoline in a plastic container. It's hard to believe that is any less dangerous.
I do find it interesting that most people who buy an all electric trailers add propane, or at minimum cook with propane even if it's outside. This said life is about choices and for some people all electric is the choice.
I suspect that some day there will be all electric trailers that meet everyone's needs. Possibly Solar
panels will be come more efficient and batteries will have higher energy densities making it possible to be off the grid without proapane tanks and power cords.
For today, I like propane. It's a wonderful backup to have around when the grid goes down.
