Propane mounting bracket

Well I have been wondering around this site for awhile and finally decided I should register.

I have been searching for some possible solutions for a propane bracket on my 70 something Trillium 1300 on this site and around the world wide web but coming up with very little. Any ideas from you knowledgeable ones out there?

I can't remember if it was this forum or the pop up one but it had a few ideas but none that I really can do myself. I would love to just bungee it but I know I can't.

So, anything ideas you could throw a new owner of one of these eggs? I don't have much for tools and limited in cash to get modifications done.

P.S. This site has been so helpful so far as I am a female that has little help, learning on how to turn on heat, the fridge, water taps... you name it. Thanks!

~Heidi

Hi Hidie

This is the set up on my Trillium (1975) 1 tank, sits on a platform between the tow bar. It is secured with two brackets , one on each side.
This picture shows the (loose) bracket, when tightened up it is solid.

Ron

Thanks Ron,
The strap on yours just gave me an idea on how to prevent someone from stealing another tank on mine.

I just wanted to use one. Even though the stove works, I do not want to cook in the trailer.

That is exactly what I would like to find but nothing like that available around here. Is yours original or did you find it later?

Heidi,
You can Google search it from the top bar, but you can also check out the similar threads below. There are a lot of great ideas posted here over the years.
There is everything from plywood with U bolts to combination tire/tank holders. We've got and had some very ingenious people here.

Mine came with the trailer (which I purchased 3 (?) hand) It looks original but then again over 37 yrs one would think it was a replacement.
I'm sure RV places would be able to help.

Unfortunately, I have been to all the RV places in my area and they do not have or believe they can get one. I am going to keep trying though online to see about ordering from somewhere. Thank you again for showing me your set up.

For now I have made something with two ready rods, two pieces of straight metal with holes everywhere, nuts, and washers. It is something I saw someone do and I figure I will try it for now.

I have tried to search this site with a variety of key words but keep coming up with little - Just not picking the right ones.

Scroll down to the bottom of this page to the box that says "Similar Threads" and pick a thread that looks like it might answer your question. Let the software search for you. Once you pick one, it will show different choices in the similar threads box based on key words.
As you read through each thread, frequently you will find links to other threads. Surf away!

Just a different way of searching. It works surprisingly well.

Thank you!

I wish I knew about that way of searching before... Some great advise there and I may end up trying to make my own brackets (J hooks) in the end. (after this weekend's camping trip that is.

This is my makeshift propane mount that I ended up doing. It held for two camping trips now and will do until I get the proper hooks or I have to do some modifications so I can convert to the newer bracket system.

Tks to all for you help and suggestions!!

You may want to check the Scamp web site. I think those straps are in the parts catalog.
