Travelling with an extra propane tank

I'd like to take an extra 20# (full) propane tank with us when camping. Both for grilling and to have extra capacity with us. When travelling with a full propane tank, would it be best to secure it in the bed of the truck, or in the hold (basement?) of the TT?

Old milk crate sitting in the bed of the truck for me. Not the basement the trailer, that is living space and if it leaks trouble would ensue.

Old milk crate here too. Which got me thinking about how much explosive things i haul around when camping. Between the fuel cans, the extra propane and the ammo, i should have a freakin hazmat sign on the bed of my truck, lolol.

Are you forgetting the twin 30# cylinders and 8' of rubber hose right under the bedroom?

My pickup has a soft tonneau cover. Would that make it too hot to safely carry a full tank back there in summer?

That would be nice. But unfortunately, I have twin 20# tanks in that location. 30# tanks are $60+ each and a new cover would be another $30+. And I already have several spare 20# tanks.
