Sportsmobile Propane Pictures Please

Hello all!

I am trying to fit a new Manchester propane tank in my homebuilt and I would love to see a few pictures of your set up from those of you that have a factory tank installed under the drivers side between the frame rail and the body.

Pictures of the mounting system (bolts through floor form underneath the van), the way the gap between the outer shell of the body and inner shell was resealed once patched, and maybe a few general pictures with the door to the propane compartment open so I can look around.

Thanks so much and with your pictures I can dial in how to mount my tank with out too much more duress and seal up this gaping hole in the side of my rig!

Cheers!

propane tank install

We installed a tank I ordered from Stonewell bodies:
Propane Tank Sizes: 10" x 32" - 7.9 gal - 33 lb

Images of the installed tank are posted on my photo website:

2 brackets

Note that we added a bracket on each side. Using only the standard brackets was not stable enough. With 2 brackets the tank does not move at all.

There of pictures of our install in the build thread. We have factory rear AC so needed to use an eight inch diameter tank.

I recently installed a Manchester tank with a remote fill setup. I put it between the framerails. I'll post pics soon.

I think photos display related to their pixel size, webpages like these want images in the 600 (left to right) x 800 (top to bottom) size. Images will display accordingly, your's seem rotated due those dimensions.

I could be wrong, perhaps a moderator here can clarify this for us?
