Yeap, even after that long Alaska trip my propane cage is working wonderfully. The uprights are bolted to the frame and then the band is tightening around the tank. It's going nowhere until I loosen it. The chain is definitely a good thing because I wouldn't want my propane tank to walk off.

I never liked the Mickey Mouse setup that originally came with the trailer. I'm not one to want to be crawling around on the ground certainly not to loosen those pesky screws.

I like just having to unlock the chain, loosen the band and pull the tank out. Simple Pie!!! No hands and knees, just a slight bend over to get the tank and lift it.

That's great, Roger.
My Unik rig was built in Canada with twin tanks. I'm in Texas and don't camp in the winter, what little winter we have down here ( maybe snow two days a winter ). Use only sites with electricity and use elec. htr. A/C is what's important in the Southwest.
Here's some pics of my conversion:
