How likely would this be for a 20# propane tank? Or how do you secure yours in your truck bed?

Well yes, That is why they make tie down straps and the OEM has tie down points in the bed.
I see mentally challenged individuals driving with open beds and loose stuff flying out all the time. Then they are shocked when they get to the job site and all their siding/insulation/gloves/water cans/hard hats/"you name it" is all over the highway.
I once tried to take a short cut after I emptied my gas cans and because they "just" did not fit between the 5th wheel and the tail gate, the cans stayed in; but they were flying around pretty good. Luckily I spotted that before I drove more than a few hundred feet. Pulled over (again) and properly tied everything down.
While I doubt a 20 pound propane tank will get sucked out of the bed of the truck, would you want one bouncing down the road at your windshield if I had an accident? I think not...
