Single propane tank holder

Hi, I have a 70 something 13 ft trillium. My propane tank holder was missing when I purchased the unit.
I have been searching for one and so far I can only find one on eBay for $195 and $125 shipping to canada.
Any suggestions that are more reasonably priced?
Thanks

Thanks Fred. That’s something to consider. I’m just a bit stumped about how to bend the metal strap properly. I’ll google around for a method. Quite the thread you have !!!!

Helps, but not a lot.
Whitewood? Saskatoon? Regina? Stockholm?
Thinking then there must be some farm equipment guy with a welder who could help.

Mitch, take that 100 bucks they want for the mount, buy a vise, hammer and a drill. They will pay for themselves many times over.

Try checking your area for a "princess auto" or similar place. it will come with the right hardware and make your job easier and faster. By the way they also have wheels and tires for trailers if needed.

Vise and some heat makes bending a strap pretty easy. My scamp has two. Both were repositioned when a battery box was added and the propane had to move forward a few inches. The new position required bending change. Welding shop did it as a matter of course with a torch and vise.

Metal strap is cheap, can screw up a couple of times getting used to using your new tools. steel or iron that is glowing red bends very easily.

Vise and mapp gas torch should do the job and add to your tools collection in a nice way. Propane can work to heat and bend the metal but I think MAPP gas would work better similar cost for torch but hotter gas. I think one can use propane gas in mapp but probably not the other way around. Not 100% sure. Have used both but only own propane.

Consider just installing a dual tank rack, then you would never run out of propane.

This the set-up I have on my '93 Casita. I used one of the tank holders from eBay that was previously mentioned. It worked really good for my application. I wanted to get the battery out from under the bed and I wanted to have a double battery system. I have room for the dual (group 24) batteries in one of the storage boxes and the other box has tools and miscellaneous items in it.

I like that and i have have one of those racks laying around. My one concern is turning tight corners. No binding with the tow vehicle?

I have not yet had that problem but will be watching closely. If I see an issue I intend to get a hitch extension. I will be using a Chevy Colorado as my tow vehicle and the extension will not over leverage the the hitch.
