Trailer: 1974 Honey Boler
Posts: 10
Hi all, I'm looking for some hardware to mount a single propane tank on the tongue tray of my '74 Boler. (I'm sure this has been covered before but using the search engine hasn't pointed me in the right direction yet...)

The original tray is in place but I didn't get any of the hardware to mount a 20 lb tank. I've gone to a few RV dealers but all they have are big dual tank holders. I'd appreciate some tips and ideas that satisfy my criteria of cheap, easy, and quick.

Thanks,

Kevin

I looked and looked for one and gave up- my tank sits on my spare tire, and everything is strapped onto the tongue. It would be a bit of a nuisance if I needed the spare, but not that bad, (not much worse than anywhere else the spare might be) and works great for the propane tank.

Though I'm thinking of changing it as I'd like to have a rack for exercise pens behind the tank and that leaves no room for the spare.

You might contact Victor at Casita, in Rice Texas. I have purchased all sorts of items for my Casita from him. Mine is a 2000 new-to-me Spirit Deluxe & came with a single 20# tank, held down with two simple but separate metal straps that hooked over the lip of the top of the tank, one on each side, and was affixed to the frame or tank holding angle iron with bolt and wing nut. An ingenious arrangement for sure. Tighten down two wing nuts to secure it and just loosen them to remove the tank. Needing more propane but being frugal with weight, I moved it over, drilling some new holds for the 20 pounder's new position, and added an 11 pounder beside it. For that tank, I fashioned two more straps similar to the ones on the 20, but just shorter for the shorter ll pound tank. It works great. The trick was to find a piece of metal and bend it slowly in a vise to fit. Go slowly. Drill out the hole for the bolt before you begin bending.
