It looks similar to the 10 lb. cylinder bracket from AdventureTrailers.com which cost $124.00.

I want to use a similar bracket to hold a 11 or 17 lb. Viking Composite Cylinder. I like that they weigh less than steel cylinders and that you can easily see how much propane they contain.

I'll use a Camp Chef Deluxe Outdoor Camping Oven on a slide out shelf in my galley. I'm undecided whether to mount the propane tank on the side of the galley or in the front of the teardrop above the tongue.



Both items were Amazon.

Bottle: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MJV5A26/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Bracket: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OCDRB94/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Yes, the bracket is about the same cost as the bottle, but it is well-built and solid. Power tank makes some great products. Fit is perfect!

Thanks for the information and links Gary.

I'm hoping to use a Viking Composite Cylinder for my propane supply tank because it weighs less and you can see the remaining amount of propane. The Vikings 12" diameter is bigger than the 10 lb. Manchester tanks 8.9" diameter. To be able to use a Viking cylinder I also need to find a bracket that will fit it.

:thinking: If anyone knows of a bracket that fits a 12" diameter propane tank I'd appreciate a link to be able buy one.

My fallback preference would be to use a steel, or aluminum, tank and matching bracket like the combo Gary linked to.

Forklift tank brackets.

Eliminate the "keying" post if it's in the way

I used a welding tank bracket for the mount on our trailer. The 10-11# bottle is cheaper elsewhere...

I use a 20# exchangeable cylinder that I can refill or exchange as the situation calls for.
