Default Re: Picked up new Travato, took shake-down trip

That's the same pizza maker under a different name. Cabelas had them for sale last week for $199. Their normal price is $249. Williams Sonoma and a few others sell the Pizzeria Pronto name for $299. I've researched it well. I don't want a mounted propane tank especially since I am eliminating all propane use except for possibly an outside appliance like a Pizzaque. That requires finding a place to fill it which is generally a pain in the A. I've got a reliable source at home but have to drive about 8 miles to get there.

I understand you are going for a clean look on your new rig, but I think your only alternative is some kind of bottle box. You could have them install a 1 1/2" receiver maybe offset to the side. Then have an aluminum box made and painted the same as your coach that you could attach to that receiver and but a 10# bottle in there. It could even be a cylinder instead of a box. Take it off when you don't need it.

It isn't that important. That's never going to happen. I will have three (one large, two small formerly battery) underfloor "basement" boxes. If one of them on the side can't be converted then the idea is dropped. It is that simple.

davydd-you could look at smaller rv bottles-not the 1 pound disposable-but say a 5 pound bottle-that might fit

or this 11 pounds squat bottle

gerrym51, thanks for shaking up my narrow focus. You are right. There are several propane tanks that might fit in what was formerly a battery box under floor. I could look into those. I was concentrating on the standard 20 pound tank because they are by far the most popular size for backyard BBQers and seem to be everywhere for simple exchange at service stations instead of wait for a re-fill. Finding a competent place for a re-fill of a mounted tank under a B has always been a pain.
