I have a 2016 R and I installed a dual valve with extended stay capability and BBQ valve. I store the extended stay tank in 6x12 that I tow. Plans to run a 15' BBQ line under unit and frame members to storage area on pax side so BBQ can be used under awning. Valve was 50.00 so not bad.
Petersb, that back storage area is very large on my 24S. I sure wish the propane capacity on the Solera was higher. I think its interesting to hear the Coachman Prism tank is larger than the Forester, Sunseeker or Solera. Adding ventilation is an option.

Pod2vibe, did you add ventilation to that bin? Folks told me it's not saft to transport the cylinder inside of an enclosed bin (as that WAS how I was planning to carry the tank).
Sorry, I should have mentioned that the R model has a huge rear bin "area" that is a pass through and includes 4 bin doors. It is not very sealed. I also keep my bin drain holes open when I have propane inside. When I get to my destination, the tank comes out, as well.

Not sure why all the hoopla over carrying propane bottles. I've been carting a 20# bottle for an Extend a Stay in a closed compartment on my Sunseeker for 8 years. Actually I consider travelling down the road with propane in use (refrigerator, furnace etc), like some folks do,to be a greater hazard to life and limb.
