That's what we did. (there I go taking credit with the royal "we")

See it here with the thoughts for possible improvements.

Or see it for real at Emily in July.

I'm not. One is enough for me. I'm putting on a tongue box and the 20# won't fit so I can close the lid. The battery will also go in the box. The tongue box is vented and the battery is in a marine box. Being careful about mixing propane and the battery!

Once the box is on, I'll have room to store the chocks, etc. and maybe some of the hookups for the sewer. Right now that stuff is stored inside the front cupboard... right under my bed

Also, you can use one of these for an outside Coleman stove instead of the little 1 lb. cannisters? Do they need a regular with them for that?
Chris, there is a hose that has the 20# fitting on one end and the 1# fitting on the other. You attach one end to the tank and the other to the regulator (where you attach the small can) that came with your stove.

We found that using one of the propane trees lets us use a larger tank for the lantern, the stove and the BBQ all at the same time. They were all designed for the 1 # tanks.

Hi Valerie, smaller tanks ARE more money but it seems these (like ours) are a l'il cheaper up here Canada than down your way (factor in too the $$ exchange). We have 2 of the small 5lb tanks but ONLY fill one. Its used for those few emergencys when we aren't running 120V!! We had two 20 lbs, went down to 2 ten's then to 2 fives MAINLY for the huge decrease in tongue weight!! Not to mention the ever present 'cuteness factor', LOL!!!! Did you notice the nice chrome trim accents on both tanks, !!!!!!

I picked up this 11 pounder from Home Depot. $57.00. Not cheap but it lowered the weight on the tongue and placed it further back from the hitch. We only use the stove to make coffee in the morning. The rest of our propane use is for the reefer.
