LP Tank Cover

Has anyone tried to use this product to protect the LP Tank(s) on their Scamp?

https://www.amazon.com/Montana-Grill...ct_top?ie=UTF8

In the past I ordered and returned a typical RV vinyl tank cover designed to cover my twin LP tanks. The product would not easily fit both without a struggle and it seemed it would make it a chore to remove a tank for filling. The single tank cover, one for each, looks like a good idea.

tank covers

I had 2 tanks on my 13f scamper I couldn't come up with a reason for 2 took one off and I really see no reason for a cover.

I repainted mine to sort of match the camper and never take it off. when I think its low I stop at a truck stop and have them top it off. I also turn my tank off when traveling.

if you want a cover go for it!

I don't see why that wouldn't make a nice cover.

I use an Overtank platform and put a generator on top. I always carry 3 propane tanks, an additional one in the camper shell. We boondock/primitive camp a lot. Ran out of propane one morning in the Rocky Mountains with 4" of snow that wasn't there the night before. Never again.

Sorry, can't seem to get the pic to post. Here is the website.

You might like the hard shell covers like the Casitas come with. Easy on and easy off. Just held on with a bungee cord under the bottom.

Cover

I did look at the hard covers for the twin tanks but the way the battery is mounted it won't fit without moving the tanks forward. The spacing on the Scamp apparently never contemplated a cover. I guess.

After loosing 3 vinyl tank covers due to wind I a little leery them. This one looks like it could be prone to blowing off. The even in the front would take air in and attempt to blow the cover off, as I see it. I'm not sure you could turn thing enough to prevent it.

There looks to be a draw string on the bottom of the cover so if you tightened it up there is no way it would blow off.

Personally I think it is best to not cover the tanks. The cover can trap moisture which contributes to rust.
We had a soft side cover on the twin tanks on our Scamp. It had an elastic cord at the bottom to keep it on, and a zippered cover for access the the valves.
Our ParkLiner has a hard plastic cover that fits over both tanks. Just lifts off for access. It's a matter of looks more than function.

Do you really expect that drawstring to hold. That's a good one.

Why wouldn't it hold?

I would suggest that you spend some time where the winds blow in the 55 to 65+mph for a while, then you should be able to answer your question yourself.

Living on the Texas gulf coast 55 to 65 mph seems kind of mild as compared to what we get in hurricane season.

I had a vinyl cover on my 79 Boler and it lasted about 3 year and it broke down with the sun and rain. I now have a hard shell plastic one and it is much easier to keep clean and only had to drill a small hole to account for the short rubber gas line going form regulator to gas valve. Have room for the battery and this cover on the front.
