On my Scamp

bottle and the steel dual bottle mount. There was still a small net increase in weight as a 6V battery is heavier* than a full propane
bottle. I also added a fairly light
aluminum shroud and tool box on top further adding weight. I tow with a full-size 1/2 ton pickup so the added tongue weight is not an issue.
*It might be interesting to calculate the net energy per pound in the battery versus a 20 lb. propane bottle. I am sure the propane bottle wins by a large margin but then with solar
the battery is a renewable resource skewing things back toward the battery. Oh well, I ain't smart enough to answer the question, just enough to ask it.
