My battery and single propane
tank are side-by-side on the tongue. No problem. A battery doesn't have to be "dead level"; just sitting flat.
Per carrying spare propane
tank on a rear rack:
People do it, and it appears to be legal. I myself wouldn't due to my discomfort with the fact that in that unprotected position it could become a bomb in the even of a rear ender.
My "spare" propane is a five pound
refillable bottle that's about the size of a gallon of milk. Enough propane there to go several days, during which time I'll take the main tank for refill. Works well since I rarely camp for more than seven days without having to "go to town" for something anyway.
